Welcome to Almuñécar!

Andalusia - Costa Tropical - Southern Spain

The lively and vibrant town of Almuñécar on the Costa Tropical in Andalusia, Southern Spain has a classical Spanish atmosphere and has so far avoided being dominated by tourism.

Tourists ;-)
Almunecar has roughly 26.000 inhabitants, including a large English, Scandinavian, Danish, French and German expatriate community.
The town of Almuñécar stills maintains its authentically Spanish character while welcoming international holidaymakers. Almuñécar offers a really multicultural, friendly and inviting atmosphere!
26 kilometers of beaches
26 kilometers of beaches (!) invite to sunbathing and relaxing.
Almunecar´s water park "Aqua Tropic" at Playa de Velilla Beach is especially popular, attracting old and young alike during the summer with its open air slides, pools, sunbathing areas and children activities.

Almunecar - long stretches of sandy beach
The town boasts long stretches of sandy beach with several small coves and picturesque hidden bathing bays where you can enjoy almost any kind of water sports.
Along the beaches there are numerous beach bars, called "chiringuitos" and there are also plenty of excellent restaurants of all types in Almuñécar including Chinese, Indian, British, French, Scandinavian, German … but of course mainly with Spanish specialities and delicious Andalucian cuisine.

FREE tapas
The Costa Tropical is famous for its free, yes FREE tapas (tasty, small delicacies) which are generally served with every soft or alcoholic drink. Unlike its neighbouring Costa del Sol where you have to pay for tapas ...

The Moorish and Phoenician architectural heritage shows up in the winding passages and cobbled squares of the old quarter as well as the prominent castle.
Castillo San Miguel Almunecar
The town also has several markets, numerous good restaurants, the famous "Loro Sexi Bird Park" with over 120 different species of bird. Also very popular is the botanical garden "Parque del Majuelo", containing Europe's largest collection of subtropical plants, and the handsome Moorish castle, the "Castillo San Miguel".
Almunecar Beach Playa de Cabria
A variety of holidays can be enjoyed at Almuñécar, including visiting nearby beaches, water sports, horse riding, scuba diving, golf and walking in the countryside, along with a thriving nightlife which you would be hard pressed to beat anywhere else on the Costa Tropical.
There are numerous late night bars and clubs throughout the town where you can dance until the early hours of the morning. For a great night out "Venta Luciano" has a barbecue and flamenco show every Friday night.
Playa de Velilla

A lively town with plenty to do!

Not to forget: Modern supermarkets with a a wide range of Spanish and international specialities, banks and other facilities are also available.
Almunecar Beach Impression
The magnificent city of Granada with its famous Alhambra palace is only a 40 minutes drive from Almuñécar, with high quality skiing in the nearby Sierra Nevada mountains from December to April.
Seville, another great destination, can be reached in 3 hours. Skiing in the morning and the beach in the afternoon can be a funny option during the winter. There are unlimited walking opportunities in the Alpujarra mountains within 1-2 hours drive.
Beautiful Sunset
Spain's premiere skiing, in the Sierra Nevada mountains, is available in the winter and spring.
Costa Tropical
This may be the best climate in Europe. Compared to the rest of the Spanish south coast, the Costa Tropical is particularly mild in the winter and relatively cool and comfortable during the summer. There are more than 320 sunny days each year!
Almunecar and La Herradura form the tourist capital of the Costa Tropical. This relatively unknown stretch of Spain's southern coastline belongs to Granada province in Andalusia. It lies between the more populous Costa del Sol to the west, and the coast of Almería to the east.

It's here that the continent of Africa is trying, and noticeably succeeding, to push its way under the mass of Europe. The dramatic results are what give the Costa Tropical its special geography and climate, so unlike any other coastline in southern Spain.
Another beautiful beach in Almu
And above everything towers the grand Sierra Nevada. Here, more than a dozen peaks over 3,000 m break the skyline, including the two highest on the Spanish mainland - Mulhacén (3.482 m) and Pico de Veleta (3.398 m), form a natural weather-break which protects the Granadan coastline from the worst influences of the European winters, while Africa, to the south, helps buffer the harsh effects of both the Mediterranean and Atlantic weather.
As a result, the area has an extraordinarily benign subtropical climate which can be seen in the variety of exotic products to be found in the local markets and restaurants, especially the different fruits.
Malaga Airport
The nearest airport is Malaga Airport (about 1 hour scenic drive), but also Almeria and Granada are an option. A car is recommended and car hire can be arranged. If you are interested in renting a holiday villa or apartment, or if you have any further question please don't hesitate to contact us!
