It is tough walking around town and wondering which restaurant is good or even great. You really can’t tell by just looking at the furnishing, so we have decided to help you with choosing where to eat in Almuñécar. We asked over 20 expats and locals about their favorite Almuñécar restaurants. They have shared with us where they like to have a nice meal out. The entrée prices are typically 10€ plus per person, but are well worth it. Of course you can stop by many of them just for drinks and tapas, as well as a scrumptious meal.
When it comes to learning about Almuñécar, this A-Z guide should help you out. We are just having a little fun, while sharing more about the Costa Tropical area. Come along with us and enjoy Almuñécar!
Step back in time, thousands of years ago along Costa Tropical. The waves from the beautiful blue sea were lapping on the shore, people were living here and making ceramics and crafts. They were protected and surrounded by the lush Granada mountains and hills and life was good. When people passed away, their burial grounds were placed up on the hills, the Phoenician Necropolis. People were buried in their tombs with goods and belongings, all right here on the Granada coast!
If you like mosaic art, then join us on this photo walk along the Paseo Puerta del Mar Almuñécar, Spain. What were once ordinary cement benches, are now beautiful works of art and local attractions. Each bench is covered with white mosaic tiles and accented with an amazing design in blue mosaic tile.
The Almuñécar Plazas are an important part of daily life. We will share with you some of the most popular Spanish Plazas, along with photos, and a map with the location. These plazas not only offer a place to find shops and restaurants, they are also social gathering spots. These are the outdoor living rooms for the town to enjoy and meet up with friends. Of course it is popular all over Spain, but the weather in Costa Tropical ensures our Spanish plazas are active all year-long.
Did you know there are speed cameras in Almuñécar? This shouldn’t be a big surprise, as there are road signs clearly marking the speed radar zone. That said, when you have beautiful scenery you are looking at or on the hunt for a parking space, you can easily miss those signs. Needless to say when you receive that multa (fine) in the mail, with a photo of your car, it doesn’t feel good. Of course the next reaction is denial and that it couldn’t have been you, as you don’t speed.
