Almuñécar, founded by Phoenician traders three thousand years ago, lies right at the heart of the Granada coastline, which stretches from the end of Malaga's Costa del Sol until the beginning of the Costa de Almería, making Almuñécar one of the southern Spain's most attractive stretches of coastline. Recently this area has been named the Costa Tropical because of its unique subtropical microclimate due to the close proximity of the High Sierras, where there is the famous ski resort of Sierra Nevada, and the North African Coast Line. The result is a remarkably good climate with very little rain, and ideal growing conditions for a myriad of subtropical fruits and flowers. Almuñécar can claim to have one of the most benign climates of any town in the Western Mediterranean.
Almuñécar has plenty of amenities, beaches with all different water sports (pedalos, windsurfing, water-skiing, para-skiing, jet-skis, sailing, diving, ) and other sports (tennis, squash, horse riding, golf, hiking, mountaineering, mountain biking, snow skiing, fishing, karting), plenty of restaurants and bars (well known for their delicious free tapas), the famous Venta Luciano, well known for its fabulous flamenco dancers best accompanied with a wonderful dinner or barbecue, an impressive water park with plenty of attractions for the whole family to have a fun day, night clubs, disco pubs, cinemas, shops, a luxurious marina, all different types of markets (fish, flowers and vegetables, antiques, second hand, etc.), a beautiful Arab old town with the typical Moroccan and Granada handicrafts, a little animal park, an Arab castle, a botanical garden, Phoenician ruins, a Roman aqueduct, museums and much more!
Almuñécar is ideally located for taking a brief, or not so brief, excursion to some of the most wonderful sights that the south coast of Spain has to offer. Spectacular mountain scenery, unspoilt white towns clinging to the hillsides, unforgettable historic monuments, all within easy reach.
