Almuñécar is located on the Costa Tropical. It is about one hour from Malaga by car along excellent roads. It is just one hour from from historical city of Granada and 90 minutes from ski slopes of the Sierra Nevada.
Almuñécar is an ideal holiday base with opportunities for a relaxing beach holiday or cultural discovery including the Castillo San Miguel and the roman remains in the old town of Almuñécar. Other places of interest, and slightly further afield, include Granada with the famous moorish fortress and palaces of the Alhambra and the white villages of the Alpujarras. Malaga and Granada are great shopping destinations and beautiful historic cities.
For the more active there are many opportunities. The location with a backdrop of mountains, rugged coastline and beaches is stunning. Options include walks in nearby nature reserves, scuba diving in nearby marine reserves, snorkelling, sailing from the nearby marina, horse riding and golf (the nearest golf course is 15 minutes away).
