Helpful Travel Tips

  • STAY: NH Collection Granada Victoria. Conveniently located in the center of it all. Walking distance to all the major attractions, restaurants, bar and more.
  • EAT: Bar Los Diamantes. A seafood lovers paradise. This place gets packed at lunchtime and then again for dinner. If you don’t want to wait, try going around 2pm.
  • DRINK: La Tana. Great little wine bar with just a few seats. Tapas are served complimentary with drinks.
  • GET THERE: By Plane: Granada has a small airport situated 12km west of the city serving a limited number of flights but for budget airlines you’re much better off flying into nearby Malaga. By Bus: Regular buses run from Seville, Málaga, Madrid and Cordoba as well as a few direct services to the port of Algeciras. By Train: Three trains run each day on the line to Algeciras via Antequera and Ronda. Granada is also on a stop on a line between Almeria and Seville, with four trains daily. By Car: I drove to Granada from Malaga. It takes rough three to four hours and is a pretty desolate drive so be sure to stock up on any snacks!
