Granada, Spain – Ice Cream, Cocktails and Great Views

This Tip has been suggested by our British Explorer: Rachel Smith

You will find hoards of tourists making their way to the San Nicolas viewpoint, waiting in line to get the token photo of them sitting on the wall smiling, with the Alhambra Palace in the background. While this spot is still definitely worth paying a visit, if you want a more breathtaking view with fewer people and zero queues, get yourself up to the San Miguel Alto. It involves a bit of hike up the cobbled, winding streets of the Albaicín, but you will be rewarded by the most amazing, panoramic view of Granada. As it’s not signposted you should be prepared to ask a few locals to point you in the right direction.

Hidden away in the Plaza de los Lobos you will find the quirky Bohemia Jazz Café, where you can hardly see the walls for framed newspaper prints, books and antique instruments. Step down into the low lighting; forget about having any phone-signal and chill out in the cool atmosphere amongst the locals. The decadent ice creams are a must-try: thick and creamy with huge chunks of Belgian chocolate in every spoonful! For those looking for a boozy night instead of comfort food, there is an extensive cocktail menu with something for everyone. Failing that, they serve goblets of gin and tonic… what more could you need? This café-bar is definitely not one to be missed.
