The Basics

An ideal coastal day-trip destination from inland Granadá, you can easily experience the best of Almuñécar on foot in one day. Take your pick of the town’s many beaches; stroll through the Old Town; and make time to visit Almuñécar’s top attractions, such as the castle, Church of Incarnation—home to a Visigoth sculpture of the Virgen de la Antigua—and scenic Parque del Majuelo.

Alternatively, visit Almuñécar with ease during a full-day excursion from Granadá and benefit from round-trip transportation and stops at nearby attractions like the Nerja caves, Salobrena, and more—both private and group options are generally available.

Great trip. Michael was a fabulous guide. He added many details to the trip. The drive to the coast was restful. The cave was amazing. The beach was beautiful. I highly recommend this trip.

When to Get There

Temperate year-round, Almuñécar really comes to life during the summer months when bars and restaurants are busy throughout the day.
