To the fourth side of the square is a pebble beach, and further beaches can be reached within just a few minutes’ walk. The coastline is dotted with small beaches, hidden coves and soaring cliffs, and is one of the most tranquil places on the Spanish coast. The waters here and clean and warm, making swimming a viable option throughout almost all of the year.

A number of activities can be arranged at the harbour, including aqua diving. You can also hire a sailing boat and head out onto the Mediterranean to enjoy far-reaching views of the rocky Costa Tropical.

Just a ten minute walk from Castell de Ferro is the small village of Gualchos. The short journey is rewarded when you reach the village, as it has its own mountain spring, which is believed to produce some of the freshest and cleanest water in the whole of Spain.

We have visited almunecar now for the past 7 years and this time was very special as my new husband and I got married there this year 😊 The villa was perfect for our young family and the hot tub was definitely my favourite. There was a few teething problems but they were quickly sorted out. The walk down the street was ok but it is a bit of a hike back up! We will certainly be back at casa da mar. Such beautiful memories of our wedding and special holiday. Also the views are spectacular 😍

The property is ideally situated for peaceful walks or down into town for the shops, bars, restaurants and beaches. The terraces all have great views and the pool was used everyday. Jose Snr is a fine chap who supplied us with free fruit and veg and also roses for Steph. We were really sorry to leave.
