What To Do In And Around Almunecar
In the main town, you can relax over a drink, soak up the environment, go shopping, find bargains at the town market or even visit the new impressive aquatic park with its fun waterslide and more daring “Rio Turbulento” rides.
If you are a Night Bird, there is no shortage when wondering what to do in and around Almunecar. If you fancy some nightlife there are a number of discotheques where parties often start at midnight and go on until 5 am or dawn. Music Bars are common, here the music avoids disco and “Heavy Beat” commercial sounds, good places to relax and enjoy the mood. Flamenco, born in Andalucia is well worth seeing, there are a number of tablaos where you can enjoy a meal and join in the fun. Eagle Peak is only a few minutes from the town centre, but far enough away not be disturbed by noise.
Water sports of all types can be found in the immediate area, the conditions are ideal for windsurfing and sailing. Snorkelling and scuba diving are popular with many caves and shipwrecks to explore. If you like something different why not try water-skiing or para-skiing, or even rent a jet-ski. If you wish to make use of these facilities please advise us with your booking so that we can arrange things for you. In high season unless you book you may be disappointed.
Many other activities can be enjoyed in the area. Nude hiking, mountaineering, and 4-wheel drive safaris to mountains are very popular. The area is famous for scuba diving with the centre only a few minutes away. Pony trekking and horse riding in the mountains can also be enjoyed and we have an arrangement with a nearby stables who offer beautiful treks with an English Guide at Pegasus Riding Centre
The area is famous for its fabulous lighting and is a joy for artists and photographers.
There are probably over 100 restaurants in the town to choose from, Basque, French/Belgian, Italian, Scandinavian and Chinese are all to be found, and of course the great Spanish invention Tapa is everywhere. Eating out is not expensive.
Sightseeing is wonderful in Andalucia. The obvious place to visit is Granada with its fabulous Alhambra Palace, care is needed when booking a visit, as often the ticket is only entry into the Palace itself.
A visit to Orgiva (a popular hippy town) makes for a lovely day out and is only about a thirty-minute drive. Orgiva is the entrance to the Alpujarras National Park and an area of outstanding natural beauty. This is the area written about by author Chris Stewart in his famous ‘Driving Over Lemon’ books and it is also the home of Bestselling Author, David Luddington, a regular visitor, who has written many gentle comedy books involving the area, it’s inhabitants and their funny ways.
