Almunecar & La Herradura
Almunecar is located in the heart of Costa Tropical. This coast meanders along a shoreline of picturesque beaches and pristine coves, complimented by the beautiful backdrop of the mountains and the warm waters of the Mediterranean. It is located within the Province of Granada in the Autonomous Community of Andalucia.
Therefore, this stretch of the coast offers visitors the unique opportunity of enjoying a subtropical micro climate in southern Spain, nestled between Costa del Sol of Málaga and Costa de Almeria. The average temperature is 20º Centigrade (68ºF) with approximately 320 days of sunshine a year. The summer months can reach near 32º Centigrade 89ºF) and the winter months 9º Centigrade (48ºF). This Spring like climate has helped the gentle slopes and fertile plains that rise up from the beach to grow a large variety of produce and tropical fruits.
