For any visitor choosing to explore the delights of the coastal and inland region of Andalusia, Motril is the perfect town in which to be based. The many tourists who visit the town enjoy its beaches and sunny weather, the lovely local produce and the town and surrounding region's cultural heritage. The town is also the main shopping hub for the Costa Tropical and therefore has excellent shops, a hypermarket, bars, restaurants and nightclubs.
