Villa in Almunecar, Costa Tropical, Spain
About the area
There are some extremely beautiful beaches, the local beach and Cerro Gorrdo beach in the National Park or Cantarijan. The temperature in Southern Spain up to November is still a very pleasant 21 - 25 degrees. The sea is warm enough to swim in. Almunecar water park with its slides and pools is a favorite for kids. There is also a large pool for the adults to relax around whilst the children have fun. There is a PADI diving school down on the front.
There are good Golf courses at either side of Almunecar either Torre del Mar, or Motril which are approx 20 min away.
Only about 1 hours drive to Sierra Nevada skiing resort. The Sierra Nevada, Europe's most southerly ski resort Sol y Nieve in the Sierra Nevada Mountains is 60 minutes drive from Almunecar usually open between November to March depending on snowfall. For many months of the year you can ski and swim in the Med on the same day. With easy parking and lots of restaurants it is a good day out for all the family even if you don't ski.
Special Interest Holidays
The main attraction point for tourists are the plethora of beaches, some sand, some gravelly sand, and the wide expanses of sea. Besides this, Almuñecar has a lot more to offer the visitor, for example, its striking Moorish castle on top of a headland and its streets winding through the whitewashed part of the old quarter. There is also a Botanic Garden, beautifully maintained and an old Roman aqueduct which was in use until very recently. For children, there is a fascinating Bird Park with a wide range of exotic, colourful birds, and a large water park called "Agua Tropic" between the beaches of "Playa Velilla" and "Playa Puerta del Mar" Locally there are many activities on offer scuba diving, hiking. There are many shops and bars and 4 beaches in Almunecar with its old town and castle and interesting old lanes. The night life here is fantastic, there are many contemporary bars on the seafront, and restaurants that serve a variety of food until very late. Plus some real flamenco and l
How to get there
Situated an hour by car from Malaga airport or an hour from Granada Airport. Car hire is not essential but an advantage. There is a bus station in Almunecar .
Almunecar was originally founded by the Phoenetians, then colonised by the Romans, and the Moors. The historic old town with its castle, Roman ruins and narrow lanes is well worth exploring. It is an hour to Granada and the Alhambra Palace. There are also the famous caves and the National Park at Nerja. From the stunning bay of La Herradurra to one side, with its fantastic beaches of Cerro Gordo, to the white washed town of Salobrena with its fresh fish restaurants. The Tropical coast is a gem.
Almunecar is a vibrant town with a variety of interesting local shops, as well as boutiques, supermarkets, restaurants, from chic French ones to local fish bars, tapas bars, night clubs and beach bars. The attractive and colourful market is open every day with locally produced flowers, fresh fruit and vegetables, fresh fish and meat stalls. Near to the market there is a particularly good Bodega (wine cellar) where visitors can taste and buy some splendid Andalusian wines aged in oak wood barrels.
In the summer evenings there is the famous free jazz festival, followed by flamenco festival, in the tropical park below the castle. Not to be missed! Also there is a popular open air cinema another way to spend a balmy summer evening. As well as the casa de la cultura in the old town where there are varied theatrical and musical performances. The orange tree filled plazas are lovely to have a morning coffee or breakfast in. There are many interesting fiestas throughout the year. To the west of Almuñecar is a sport and yachting port - "Marina del Este" - which is an elegant shopping area with boutiques and galleries and well worth a visit. Further west is the old fishing village of La Herradura which is popular with divers and there are a number of diving schools to be found there. The flat plains inland are a great place for cycling or walking
Almuñecar is also a good starting point for day trips to the historic city of Granada or the ski slopes of the Sierra Nevada or the whitewashed villages dotted around the beautiful Alpujarra Mountains. These are all within an hours drive and Malaga and the airport are approximately the same.

"Great base for Granada"
Perfect location for a combination of seaside and city, not too far from Granada. We visited Ronda in a day, but bit far for Cordoba and Seville. The property was clean and well-maintained and the listing description was accurate. I would recommend this property to a friend or relative but would recommend that you have a car as we felt it was too far to walk into Almunecar from the house. The neighbourhood was nice and quiet and the views were stunning from the terraces. All in all a very enjoyable holiday.
Recommended for: Age 55+, pet friendly and sightseeing

About the Owner
We loved living in Almunecar, the atmosphere, the festivals, year round sunny weather, the sea and all the local activities. In one hours drive you can be up in snowy mountains of the Sierra Nevada or wander through the narrow white villages of the Alpujjarras, where chestnut trees grow and handmade rugs are still made in the local houses. There is the huge National Park behind Nerja with many hike trails, barbeque areas, acres of wild forest and high hills. Fish bars on the beach where you can order freshly caught fish, whilst sitting next to the sea. The old town is also very interesting to visit as Almunecar is steeped in history, there are Roman ruins and aqueducts, the Moorish Castle and caves, the cobbled streets and whitewashed houses all with sea views.
