Activities in the Almunecar Area
For those who want a nice quiet holiday away from the noise and without the necessity to get dressed, Eagle Peak is the perfect vacation resort. But when you want to explore, nights out or day trips, there are plenty of activities in the Almunecar area.
Almunecar itself is a busy Spanish town with good shopping lots of beautiful restaurants and traditional bars. If you want to venture a little further afield, then Nerja, about fifteen minutes away, offers a more traditional tourist town experience. Here you can find English beer, Fish and Chips and All Day Breakfasts! There are also dozens of interesting shops including local artisans.
The Caves just outside of Nerja are some of the most spectacular and well preserved in Europe and should certainly be visited at least once. Further afield is the historic and cultural centre of Granada with the world famous Alhambra Palace, one of the finest palaces of the Moorish world. Of all of the activities in the Almunecar area, a visit there is a definite must as people travel from all over the world just to experience it.
In Orgiva, about thirty minutes away, one can experience the fun of horse riding through some of the most beautiful scenery in Spain. Your guide will take you on a trek along the river plains of the Guadalfeo or up into the foothills of the Alpujarras. This is the area made famous by Chris Stewart in his series of books, Driving Over Lemons. This is also the home of author David Luddington whose book Forever England featured this area.
Eagle Peak has negotiated special rates with Pegasus Riding Centre in Orgiva. Ask for details.
