Motril was a complete wild card for us. We’d never heard of it, didn’t know anyone that had ever visited there and we had no idea what there was to do in and around the place.
Everyone’s been to Alicante, right? Or at least knows someone that has been?
It’s one of Spain’s biggest tourist traps, particularly as it’s one of the main gateway’s to the Costa Blanca. I half expected it to be full of expats and almost a bit too touristy, but I was pleasantly surprised.
