The Village of La Mamola
La Mamola, a small Andalucian village of just over 900 inhabitants near the Costa Tropical, is located on the Mediterranean seashore under the watch of the ancient Torre del Cautor dating from the XVI century. Although a traditional fishing village, La Mamola has grown in recent years as a tourist and holiday attraction although La Mamola remains small and retains its quaint traditional Andalus character. Nearby and worth a visit is the Castillo de Baños (or the Castle Of Baths, dating from the XVIII century) located in the small village of the same name. Visitors to Castillo de Baños should visit the Centro de Interpretación de las Defensas de la Costa Granadina (or the Center for the Interpretation of Granada's Coastal Defenses).
The Playa de La Mamola (La Mamola Beach) offers wide beaches, clean waters, several jetties for fishing, bars, restaurants, small supermarkets, bakeries, fish markets, gift shops, tobacconist, and other services. The mountain and maritime character of La Mamola and the Costa Tropical area offer a variety of traditional delicious Spanish and Andalucian (Andalus) foods.
La Mamola is on the easternmost edge of the Granada coast (or the Costa Tropical) and borders on the Almería province, a desert area that offers incredible attractions of its own. Access information on the Almería province for more recommended tourist destinations.
