Where to Swim in Granada?

Spending the summer months in Granada means that every day brings scorching heat, blue skies, and endless sun. So what better way to spend your day than to go for a nice cool swim? There are tons of places to go for a dip in and around Granada, no matter what sort of atmosphere you´re looking for! You´ll find several indoor swimming pools for a quiet day to nurse your sunburn, waterslides and wave machines for some family fun time, and spectacular lakes and beaches that are perfect for a sandy picnic and splashing in the salty ocean waves.

Just remember that the hottest hours of the day are from 14:00-16:00, so for the best possible experience we recommend you do as the Spanish do and break for a siesta!

SALOBREÑA

The closest beach to Granada, only an hour away by bus or 45 minutes by car. In addition to the beach, you can hike the hill to the Moorish castle, visit the archaeological museum, play a round of golf, or just sip a drink in the sun at one of the many restaurants and bars.

NERJA

A little farther away, but the most beautiful beaches near Granada. You can get there in two hours by bus, or one hour by car. Pick out your favourite beach from afar by enjoying the view from the Balcon de Europa, explore the famous caves of Nerja, or visit the Donkey sanctuary while you soak up the coastal sun.
