Almunecar

Almunecar, together with its neighbour La Herradura form the tourist capital of the Costa Tropical. The town sits upon a hill at the mouth of two rivers, meandering down to the coast, in the province of Granada in Andalusia.

From here you can almost reach out and touch Africa and its special climate. The town is backed by rugged hills, valleys and agricultural land of olive groves, almond and carob trees.


History
Almunecar was founded by the Phoenicians 3000 years ago and like the rest of the coast been invaded and occupied by the Romans, Moors and re-conquered by the Catholic Monarchs.

There are many monuments and architectural structures that depict the history and occupation of the town.

Around town
The town has medieval steep winding streets that lead to the Plaza de Constitución, where the Town Hall stands, and onto the highest old quarter called Barrio San Miguel and onto  the Moorish castle. Most of this area is pedestrianised and residential. Geranium-filled balconies and small sunny plazas line the labryinth of narrow passageways, the town’s archaeological museum is located here.

To the other side of the Plaza de la Constitución, next the Town Hall, a short rise leads up to the The Iglesia Mayor de la Encarnación (the main church) is located on the other side of the Plaza de Constitución, leading away from the town hall. The Casa de Cultura (cultural centre and auditorium) is also located in this district.

The Carrera de la Concepción, once formed a part of the main coast road and is now an attractive, but busy avenue. Here there is a fountain, where the old valley road heads towards Granada and, not far along the road are the excavated remains of part of an aqueduct and important Roman baths.

The Playa Puerta del Mar is Almunecar’s principal beach backed by the palm-lined Paseo del Altillo, there are many banks located along the road. During the summer months parking can be
difficult in the town.


Beaches
Almunecar has 19 kilometres of local coastline, which is diverse with 25 beaches along the coast of Almunecar and La Herradura. Secluded coves, long sandy beaches and the town’s main beachfront with all its amenities and facilities.  

There are numerous options for water sports, including diving, the area is said to have some of the best underwater scenery anywhere along the southern coast.


Places to visit
Almunecar has its fair share of cultural and historic attractions, the first and most obvious being the Moorish castle, which was originally built on Roman foundations, however, what still stands is manly from the Arab and Christian occupations.

The archaeological museum, which is located close to the castle; the building was formerly a Roman building, it is known as the Cave of the Seven Palaces, and holds some treasures, including a 3500 Egyptian vase.

The Majuelo Park is a lovely botanical garden, which sits in the shade of the castle. There is a vast array of exotic flora and the centrepiece of the park is the Roman ruins of old fish-salting pits.

The town has paid homage to local characters and resources with dedicated statues and monuments; there are monuments to sailors, fisherman, water, fertility, amongst others.

The area is also dotted with old watchtowers, as the area was infested with pirates. These look outs were built so that they could warn the local villages of certain invasion.

Further afield you can visit the interior of the region, to the Tropical Valley full of rich orchards, which line the Rio Verde (Green River), visiting small inland villages and learning a little of the culture of the area.

Follow the Rio Seco (Dry River) and you will reach the beautiful Peña Escrita Park, where you can go hiking, rambling, horse-riding or just taking in fresh air and magnificent scenery.

Salobreña is another coastal Moorish town, just east of Almunecar. A picturesque white-washed village, definitely worth a visit.

Eating out
Almunecar has a great selection of good quality restaurants, with a mix of traditional and international cuisines.

Climate
The Costa Tropical takes its name from the sub-tropical climate that it enjoys. With warm winters and long hot summers, the average temperature is around 20C.

Almunecar has a wonderfull old town centre, nice beaches and a lot of good restaurants and pubs. It is not too crowded with tourists. Although in July and August it can get more crowded. A good place to relax and enjoy the typical authentic spanish atmosphere.

Almunecar is a lovely city, very authentic spanish seaside town. Great historical sites, easy to walk around, all ammenities one could possibly need are available. Lots of restaurants, cafes and bars. Grocery stores have everything anyone could need to cook gourmet meals at home. Easy transit system, so no car needed unless you want to explore other towns on the coast, but transit also works for this, and very affordable.

Coast review

Loved it all. But be careful of pick pockets! We got taken advantage of by gypsies, who very graciously helped me find the right coins from my wallet to donate to their dance troup, while pilfering the bills unbenounced to us. This was a sad lesson to learn, unfortunately it was our first day when we were exhausted from jet lag, and not thinking clearly. Won`t happen again. Also, our backpack outer pockets had been opened twice on our outings, but we dont carry anything in them, so no loss. May put a mouse trap in them next trip! We were told after the fact that Spain is the `pickpocket capital of the world`. It is not a problem as long as you are smart and take precautions - carry small amounts of money in your front pockets only!

Almunecar is a traditional Spanish town where tourism hasn't yet taken over. The bars and restaurants are Spanish and tooked away are some real gems. The beaches are mostly pebbly and go on for miles. In two weeks you can find somewhere of a different character to set the parasol up and enjoy a sunbath. Nerja and the Mariner Del Este is a short drive away.

Coast review

Beautiful. On foot you can walk for miles on the promenade. The sea is crystal clear and great for water sports.

the city center is inhabited by the normal variety of local people. Old town is worth exploring--some great shops along the narrow streets and some very beautiful ways the locals have decorated the outside of their apartments--lots of colorful tiles. The mercado (local shopping) was a great experience! Lots of interesting shops and friendly cafes. Everything closes between 2 and 5 pm for siesta--except the restaurants. Nice easy pace as a result.

Coast review

Costa Tropical in October was a quiet vacation spot with lots of beaches and places for tourists to live. It has lots of restaurants, bars, cafes and a few clubs. It seemed to cater to the retired age group--at least during time we were there we saw only a few people around younger than 50. However, the beaches were very nice and the water wonderful!

The Villa was located in the mountains and so the city of Almunecar was 15km away. We visited the city once and thought it was nice but quite commercial. Salobreña was very nice and less commercial. We were close to the Villages of Jete, Otivar and Itabo which we thought were very preety and interesting towns to visit.

Coast review

Loved the area. The mixture between mountains and beach was fantastic. The climate was nice as well. The only thing that lets it down is the quality of the sand on the beeches. Most are pebbles or dark sand.

Almuncar is spanish family holiday resort with plenty of affordable bars and restaurants. It is a resort that grows with you year on year and I would recommend it to friends. First impressions can be deceptive, give Almunecar a couple of days and you will be promising to return.

Coast review

Both Saobrena and Herradura are easily accessible by bus and are well and truly worth a visit. Granada is one and a half hours up the fantastic motorway, this is a must, but don't forget to book your ticket for the Alhambra if you hope to get in. The Almunecar bus station has timetables for lots of destinations including Madrid, Algerciras and Almeria, so getting about does not require a car.

Almunecar is a very relaxed 'Spanish' town and a favourite summer resort for people living in Granada, so summers there are very busy. It is a very casual place in which to holiday, so dressing-up is not necessary, and fewer clothes are required. There are numerous good beaches to choose from, and there are some fabulous restaurants catering for all tastes, serving good quality food at very reasonable prices, many on the beaches. English is spoken more or less everywhere. You can walk for miles along the wide promenade. The Old Town is truly delightful with cobbled winding streets leading into shady squares with open air cafes serving tapas with your drink.

Coast review

The sand is volcanic therefore greyish rather than golden, but the beaches are well-kept and tidy and have exercise equipment available for public use.

Almunecar has retained its spanish character and is relatively unspoilt. There are the usual unattactive high rises, but there aren't too many of them and the old town is beautiful, and full of shops, bars and restaurants. The beach promenade is very pleasant and lively. If you don't have a car its easy to get anywhere by public transport from Almunecar. I would advise visitors to learn at least some basic spanish words and phrases, but this is part of the attraction of the place. Foreign tourists seem to be in a minority, which we liked. If you want a holiday in a coastal town that is still authentically spanish, Almunecar is for you.

Coast review

We really liked the costa tropical. Its very attractive and we didn't come across any lager louts or other obnoxious foreign tourists. Its very popular with spanish tourists, always a good sign. Its easy to get around without a car, and there's plenty of bars and restaurants and things to do. However, bear in mind the beaches tend to be pebbly. I personally don't mind pebbly beaches, but this may not be the area for you if sandy beaches are a must have.

There's a few things to see and do in addition to relaxing by the pool/beach, and a few nice restaurants, but a week was enough for us. Parts of the town look as if the recession in Spain is having an impact as it looked tired and shabby in places. If we'd been staying longer we would have probably had to go further afield.

Some spectacular scenery - rocky cliffs, curving bays, and the backdrop of the Sierra Nevada mountains - but the quality of the beaches is not great (grey and stony, with little sand).

Loved Almunecar. It is a real spanish town compared to other areas I have stayed in such as Nerja and Torrox. You do need to have a bit of spanish to make it easier to deal in shops etc.. I liked this aspect and it will encourage me to take some spanish classes before I return next year. Very friendly people - great tapas and to be there for the Euro Cup Semi and Final was such a bonus.

Only flaw was jellyfish but that can happen anywhere. We were unlucky as there was an influx for all our holiday nearly. Still went for a swim now and again! Beaches are a bit stony but a pair of beach shoes fixes that. Facilities on beaches are great. Am waiting to book again for next year!

Almunecar was just the kind of small town we were looking for. People were nice and helpfull, though few spoke english. Centro historico absolytely wonderful. Things to do and see with children, like bird park, aquarium and water park. Water park better if kids over 120cm. Remember to bring cash, card only worked at the front gate. Town walkable size. Finding parking spots with a big van was sometimes hard (on low season). Good parking at grocery stores. Traffic good, pedestrians well respected. Easy access to highways, but nice beach side roads as well. Beaches are pebbly so not for those looking for white sandy beaches.

Nice, quiet and with good posibilities for trips, bathing etc.

Almunecar -friendly and welcoming, many fine restaurants (including 2 absolutely recommendable Michelin Bib Gourmand places, especially the El Chaleco) and good shopping. But stay in the old town! Playa Velilla area is deteriorating although the authorities are spending a lot of money on the public areas - many houses for sale and many of the apartment blocks look like something from the USSR...

The most beautiful in all of Andalucia!

Costa Tropical - very nice Spain area - clean sea,good Spanish food. Just one complicated thing - communication, nobody speak English ...
