Almuñécar is located at 70kms from Granada´s capital as the capital of the Costa Tropical because of its great urban explotation. This relatively unknown stretch of Spain’s southern coastline belongs to Granada province in Andalucia although is very close to Malaga province and the Costa del Sol urban development.
In Almuñécar you can find a great Moorish castle sit on a small hill between two rivers : the Río Seco and the larger Río Verde.
Almuñécar’s Tropical Valley is a fertile area of mainly subtropical fruit orchards that line the valley floor and climb the terraced hillsides. To the west of the town lies the Punta de la Mona, a pineclad headland sheltering the attractive Marina del Este sports port and home to a number of luxury urbanisations.
Nearest cities are Málaga (80 km), Granada (90 km) and Almería (130 km). Nearest centres of interest are the commercial port town of Motril and its neighbouring village of Salobreña, which lie approximately 15 km to the east of Almuñécar, and Nerja which is a popular international tourist resort about 20 minutes drive to the west in the bordering province of Málaga.
