The Wonderful Wildlife of Southern Spain

The Costa Tropical de Granada is a realm where nature unfurls its splendid beauty in a captivating tapestry of landscapes, from the lofty mountain ranges to the vibrant ecosystems that thrive along the Rio Verde and the Sierra Nevada National Park.

The mountain ranges that cradle the region offer a spectacle of rugged grandeur. With their verdant slopes and rocky crests, they provide a habitat for diverse flora and fauna. The Sierra de Almijara and Sierra de Tejeda are distinguished by their breathtaking vistas, while the Sierra de Lújar reveals an array of endemic plants that have adapted to its unique microclimate.

Winding through this enchanting terrain, the Rio Verde bestows life upon the landscape. Its banks teem with a profusion of plant species, creating a lush corridor where creatures like the Iberian midwife toad and European pond turtle thrive. The riverbanks become an oasis for birdwatchers, as colorful kingfishers and elusive herons gracefully navigate the waters.

Just beyond, the Sierra Nevada Natural Park beckons with its snow-capped peaks and alpine meadows. Home to the Iberian ibex and golden eagles, this park showcases the incredible biodiversity of the area. The high-altitude wetlands foster unique plant species, and the tranquil lakes mirror the surrounding peaks, providing a serene backdrop to the thriving wilderness.


In the Costa Tropical de Granada, nature’s symphony resonates through towering mountains, meandering rivers, and pristine parks. It’s a realm where both the grandeur and the delicate intricacies of the natural world converge to create an awe-inspiring experience for all who venture here.
