Supermercado Almuñécar Supermarkets & Grocery Stores

Not everything named supermercado (supermarket) is a big market.  There are many small shops with the name supermarket in their names.  When we think of a supermarket, we envision several aisles of shopping along with several cashiers for checkout.  There are many small supermercados around town, along Velilla Beach, and in La Herradura, but the bigger stores are mainly in Almuñécar.  We have them listed below with 3 in Almuñécar and 1 smaller in La Herradura.
