The Andalucia region
At the foot of Sierra Nevada, between the Darro and Genil rivers, lies one of the most interesting cities in eastern Andalusia: Granada. An impressive Andalusian legacy meets architectural gems from the Renaissance and the most modern facilities, typical of the 21st century.
Because it was the last city reconquered by the Catholic Monarchs in 1492, Granada has an unmistakable Arab flavour. Its cuisine, crafts and urban layout are a consequence of the city's glorious history. Fountains, viewpoints and Cármenes, the villas surrounded by gardens typical of the city, add to Granada's unforgettable charm. Not in vain was one of its oldest districts, the Albaicín, declared a World Heritage Site, together with the Alhambra and the Generalife. An important cultural centre for centuries, both during Muslim and Christian rule, nowadays the city boasts an enviable calendar of cultural and leisure events. Music, cinema and theatre seasons and festivals are listed, along with permanent and temporary exhibitions ranging over all fields of knowledge. Old Renaissance palaces are home to seminars, conferences and debates, while the most innovative infrastructures are ready for the bigger events.
The Granada coast, on the shore of the Mediterranean, Costa Tropical area sits just beyond Nerja incorporating the main towns of Almunecar, Motril and Salobrena. These three destinations are the most popular holiday bases in the area, and growing, with a number of historic attractions (particularly Phoenician and Roman), blue flag long beaches and a quieter more Spanish feel than neighbouring Costa Del Sol resorts.
The popular 'Sierra Nevada' ski resort is a little over an hours drive from Almunecar.
Almunecar's mild winters and long hot summers mean there's a lively seafront scene throughout the year. In the winter months you can sunbathe here in the morning and be ski-ing on the slopes of the Sierra Nevada in the afternoon.
There are 19 kilometres of coastline to enjoy with 26 different beaches - long, sandy stretches, rocky coves and small sheltered bays.
Puerta del Mar is the most popular beach, located right in the centre of Almuñecar near the heart of the shopping centre and social scene. The biggest - and one of the busiest in the summer - is Velilla Beach where the sand is darker and coarser than some of the neighbouring beaches. Velilla is 1,360 metres long but still gets crowded in high season with holidaymakers from the nearby apartment blocks.
To the east of the town you'll find the smaller El Tesorillo - one of Almuñecar's most delightful beaches, flanked by rocks and overlooked by an ancient Moorish watch tower. The beach takes its name (which means "hoard of treasure") from the discovery of a collection of gold coins at the water's edge.
There's a beautiful naturist beach, Cantarrijan, at the westernmost edge of Almuñecar at the foot of the cliffs in the Cerro Gordo nature reserve. You reach it by either one of two steep paths leading down from the N340 coastal road. The beach has a mixture of fine and coarse sand and is well served with two restaurants, showers, sun beds and shades.
There are many other small bays and coves, some of which can only be reached by boat or a difficult scramble down the cliff. Curumbico Beach is a particularly pretty cove, reached via a path through the rocks from neighbouring Cabria Beach.
Many of these coves are a favoured haunt of scuba divers who find a wealth of marine life in the crystal clear waters. The diving school at Marina del Este in Herradura organises trips to local dive sites which include the waters off Cantarrijan Beach where there's a maze of small caverns to explore.
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 splendour 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 AREA, one can see the steep cliffs of Cerro Gordo and Punta de la Mona; in the natural area of Cerro Gordo-Maro, there is the nudist beach of Cantarrijan, situated on the border between the provinces of Granada and Málaga. And not to mention, the beautiful sea floor, which can be explored through one of the several diving clubs in the area.
Almunecar has many places of historic or nature interest, museums, parks and gardens and for the more energetic there are water sports, scuba diving schools, walking clubs etc. The cosmopolitain 'Marina del Este' is nearby and there is a great waterpark 'Aqua Tropic' in the town therefore offering something for everyone. The nearest beaches are 5 minutes drive and there is an abundance of beaches along the Costa Tropical coast.
Almunecar town, shops, banks and supermarket are approximately 5 minutes by car as are many quality restaurants and bars.
There are several golf courses within less than 1/2 an hours drive from the villa.
