Once you've toured the city of Granada it's hard to believe there's more to see. But there's a province full of adventure...
The province certainly offers a fascinating collection of historical monuments, but you might also be visiting Granada for its snow-capped Sierra Nevada Mountains, offering skiing in winter, or you could enjoy a beach holiday on the Mediterranean coastline of the Costa del Sol, around an hour's drive to the south.
Having car rental in Granada is the best way to explore the diverse range of landscape the province has to offer, from whitewashed villages, attractive valleys and terraced fields to magnificent architectural buildings in its bustling city centres. Park up your hire car and explore Granada's famous narrow streets on foot, with terrace restaurants and bars offering free tapas.
Heading out of the city, one of Spain's hidden gems lies beyond the Sierra Nevada. Alpujarra is a stunning area that few tourists visit. Those who do make the two-hour journey leave with memories of picturesque mountain villages that could have come from a dream. Some of the restaurants here alone are worth the drive.
If you want a bit of time on the sand, some of the finest beaches in Spain are less than an hour's drive from Granada. Places such as Salobrena, Motril, Almunecar and La Herradura are all popular hotspots within easy reach of the city when you arrange Granada car rental.
