Activities at the Costa Tropical

Motril is an ideal area for all types of sports and adventure activities, the possibilities really are endless.



“Los Moriscos” Golf Course, incomparable in its location on the seafront on the Granada Beach. The advantage of Motril compared to other tourist destinations is that you can play golf all year round, thanks to our wonderful mild climate. At the same time, the diversity of the landscapes allows golf to be played next to the sea with the sea breeze and views over to the Sierra Nevada, snow-topped during many months of the year, or if you prefer more inland surrounded by mountains. Many visitors come to Motril each year to play golf, mainly Spanish, English and German, in this unique area. Two further 18 hole golf courses will be added in a near future. There is a practice ground, social club and Caddies Masters service.


The golf course beautifully situated on the beach offers players unsurpassed views of the Mediterranean sea, it boasts wide and mostly flat fairways, making it an ideal place for an enjoyable day of golf for players of all levels. 


While enjoying your game of golf you will be surrounded by tropical palm trees, wide artificial lakes and remarkable views of the Sierra Nevada mountains. If you would like to know more about our holes, you can do so here. Once again, we would like to welcome you to Los Moriscos Golf Club.

Air Activities


Different possibilities are offered such as Tandem Jump, Parabuggy. The tandem flight is the best way to introduce to this sport. In this modality you will fly with a professional cualificated pilot that will give you some basic notions during the flight and maybe will give you the controls for a while allowing you to feel all the emotions of this sport.

The tandem can be done in free flight in paragliding, or in asisted by a motor in Paratrike/Parabuggy, a chasis with three wheels that allow us to take off from everywhere without phisical or age limits.

With Paragliding we will take off from the mountain after a 4×4 road to the top. You only need to run a little bit with the piot and in a few steps you will be on air.

With Parabuggy, the take off and landing will be on the beach -or other avaiable place- and you only need to take sit on the trike and wait till the pilot drives and take off before and easier thant you can imagine.
