ALMUÑECAR: This part of the Granada Mediterranean coastline in Costa Tropical is a must see for all visitors, because of its fullness of history.

Almuñecar witnessed outstanding achievements that formed the Mediterranean culture. Tourists can visit: the necropolis from the 7th century BC and a 4th century fish salting plant, which are reminders of its Phoenician past; from Roman times, there are remains of civil buildings in the old town, like the vaults from the 1st century BC, located under the street named Martí­n Requeda, and the Roman Aqueduct; memories of splendor during the Arab Andalusian period are the layout of a district in the castle and the medieval fortress in itself, built on top of a Roman fortress. Furthermore, the Municipal Archaeological Museum, located in the Cueva de los Siete Palacios, displays an interesting collection of objects found in the archaeological remains of the surrounding

COSTA TROPICAL: On the Costa Tropical you will find more than 60 beaches along 73 km of coastline, where sea merges with land and the horizon reaches as high as the peaks of the Sierra Nevada.

The Valle de Lecrín offers routes through stunning whitewashed villages, with narrow, steep streets, in the midst of a landscape that, in ancient times, bewitched Pheonecians and Romans.

The Granada coastline, with its splendid beaches, hidden coves and rugged cliffs, is ideal for every kind of sport, including diving and snorkelling, windsurfing, hang gliding and paragliding.

The land between the sea and the mountains, where there are lush spots with a gentle climate, is used to grow the tastiest tropical fruits: mangos, avocados, custard applies, and others.

ALPUJARRA: The Granada Alpujarra, near Almuñecar, boasts stunning scenery, including almond trees, vineyards grown on terraces.

Due to the particularly hilly terrain, the towns have adapted to the uneven land, which is why they are built spaced out and facing south, to make the most of the gentle Mediterranean climate. The cobbled, winding streets are ideal to go for a stroll and breathe in calmness and tranquility. Time really does seem to have stopped in the Alpujarra.

One of the main towns in the region is Lanjarón, also known as the Puerta de la Alpujarra. It is the perfect spot to relax in the mineral-medicinal waters. There is also Órgiva, distinguished by its Moorish style.

The Balcón de la Alpujarra, formed by the whitewashed villages of Cañar, Soportújar and Carataunas, and the Barranco de Poqueira, home to the towns of Pampaneira, Bubión and Capileira, are a must-see in this region.

Cuisine in the Alpujarra mainly features meat and cured meat, especially the Trevelez ham

Fabulous experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time in Almunecar. We had myself and my husband and my daughter and her boyfriend for a few days. This apartment was perfect -- 2 nice bedrooms and bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, and nice living and dining area. And a fabulous terrace overlooking the beach. We enjoyed the view, the beach, there were lots of good restaurants and markets that were not too far, and the old town of Almunecar was very quaint. There are even some Roman ruins of a fish salting factory. Even though we had to change our arrival time because of some luggage issues, the owners were very accommodating and Lidia, the person who met us at the apartment was very helpful. We would absolutely stay in this apartment again. Excellent experience! Allison Tanner.

This is a lovely apartment in an absolutely perfect location, the photos are accurate. Almunecar a very Spanish resort, catering for mainly Spanish tourists (you won't find any English pubs etc here!). It is situated on the Costa Tropical, where the Sierra Nevada mountains meet the Med. The apartment has everything, but its main attraction is a gorgeous terrace over the Mediterranean Sea in a quieter part of town at the end of the Playa Cotobro beach. The terrace is deep enough to provide plenty of shade, even at midday. The apartment also has all kitchen and other appliances, it has a separate kitchen, 2 bathrooms with toilet, etc. etc. The apartment is a 15 min walk along the seafront from the town of Almunecar itself and as the photos show, is literally across the road from Playa Cotobro beach. Almunecar has many restaurants, but it is great to self cater and dine on the beautiful terrace, watching the world go by. (We watched dolphins one evening!) The Meracadona supermarket in the town has a large underground carpark and there is also a daily food market in town as well selling amazing seafood; so it is easy to stock up on some excellent spanish produce (the fridge is large!). Almunecar also old moorish town centre and roman ruins. For the literature types, it was also the setting for part of Laurie Lee's "As I walked out one summer morning" novel (there's a statue of him in the town). Also with the completion of the motorway, both Malaga and Granada are about 1 hour away.

Fernando is a great host and is very helpful in making sure you enjoy your stay.

Vivre au contact de la mer !

  • 5 of 5

Merveilleux séjour dans ce très bel appartement situé sur la belle plage du Cotobro à 30 mètres à peine de la mer. La terrasse idéalement située, permet de bénéficier du soleil de tôt le matin à tard le soir ( superbes couchés du soleil ! ) Comble du bonheur pour un pêcheur, il y a du poisson dans la baie, et le piton rocheux devant la terrasse est un bon spot !!!!

Les propriétaires, Ana et Fernando sont des gens tout à fait charmants et attentionnés . L'appartement récemment réaménagé offre tout le confort souhaitable, ainsi qu'un parking privatif

Le top !!!!

Lovely views to the sea

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here for 3 nights in October, weather was lovely. Could lie in bed and listen to the sea rolling over the stones on the beach. Enjoyed sitting on terrace just looking at view. Did not cook as local restaurants where very good. 10 minute walk along promenade to reach most restaurants. Liked Alumanacer and will definitely return

A pleasant place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We (2 adults and two children) stayed for only six days in this lovely apartment in Almunecar. The balcony offers a great view to the sea a enough space for dining and for relaxing.

A great advantage of this flat is the private parking space and the beach directly in front of the building.

The service provided by Ana and Fernando was excellent. The property was cleaned properly at our arrival.

The interior is well furnished so that whe did not miss anything. The two Bathrooms and the kitchen are not refurbished as the other rooms but in an adequate stat.

In summary, with the rent to pay in mind it is a great place to stay.

Wir haben in der Wohnung sechs Tage Kurzferien verbracht und die Zeit sehr genossen. Der Blick vom Balkon ist toll und die Wohnung ist gut gelegen. Sehr positiv ist der eigene Parkplatz. Die Inneneinrichtung ist modern und freundlich. Der Balkon bietet genug Platz für vier Personen, zum Essen, Ausruhen etc.

Während die Wohn- und Schlafräume modernisiert sind, sind die zwei Bäder und die Küche noch auf einem älteren Stand. Das ist m.E. aber angesichts des Preises angemessen.

Der Service ist sehr gut und die Kommunikation mit den Vermietern hat prima geklappt.

Almuñecar was founded for the Phoenicians 3.000 years ago and witnessed achievements that formed the Mediterranean culture, You can visit the necropolis from the 7Th century BC and 4th century salting plant.,... It is the tourist capital of the Costa Tropical, call like that because it micro climate, due to the protection of the Sierra Nevada mountains, the highest mountains in Spain, so the temperature is always warm even in winter, and it grows any kind of tropical fruits: papayas, mangos, cherimoyas. Restaurants and tapas bars are good and affordable There is also a beautiful botanic garden Parque del Majuelo, 15 minutes walk, and a public theatre with concerts, festival , The Mediterranean sea in Almuñecar is warm and very clear, and the bottom of the sea is a beautiful scenery, making of Almuñecar a well known place for diving, with many diving schools. Any water sport is available, and the mountains offer nice walks.

Golf: You have a Golf course quite near at Motril, at ' Los Moriscos Club de Golf' , abot 20 km. away.

That is the nearest one, but many other are accessible from Almuñecar in the Costa del Sol and Malaga provice.

Los Moriscos is an all-round sports and leisure complex sited next to the sea yet within easy reach of the Sierra Nevada ski resort. Designed by Ibergolf and Manuel Piñero the course opened in 1974 and is mainly flat. However, the large greens, two lakes, palm trees, sugar cane and an abundance of exotic fruit plantations, including the papaya and mango, ensure that playing golf here is interesting, and with all these natural hazards challenging too. The club has plants to extend the course to 18 holes.

Ski: Sierra Nevada, one of the highest mountains in Europe, is about 100 km away. The warm and tropical weather of Almuñecar is due to the high mountains in the North that do not allow the north and cold winds to come to the tropical coast of Almuñecar.

It is possible to do sky in the morning and go a bath in the warm Mediterranean sea in the afternoon.

In fact the owners of this apartment in Almuñecar , own also other apartment at Sierra Nevada that you can rent at a discount price for the clients of this property.

In summer it also worth to visit and have a walk in the high mountains, and even climb the mountains, Sierra Nevada is a Resort with many activities in winter, but also in summer.

It makes a beautiful excursion to climb by car the 3.500 m altitude of Sierra Nevada from the sea level of Almuñecar, and stay in Granada one of the most beautiful moorish towns in Spain and see the spectacular Alhambra.
