Most people planning to visit Almuñécar will be flying into the Málaga Airport (AGP) and this means driving from Malaga Airport to Almuñécar. While it is just about a 1 hour drive to the center of Málaga from Almuñécar, I would allow about 1 hour and 20 min from the airport. The Málaga Airport (AGP) is located on the west end of the city and Almuñécar is to the east. Once you are on the highway, it is smooth sailing and easy to reach.

As much as we all love Almuñécar, it is nice to get out and explore a bit. It’s very easy to take a day trip to Granada from Almuñécar, or you can even plan a few days away. Of course everything we have to share is also a perfect day trip from Malaga too. There is so much to see and do, and it’s always fun to just roam around and soak up the city. If that isn’t your style, here are some great options for organized tours and things to do in Granada.

As you enter the town of La Herradura, you will notice a large bronze sculpture along the beach. This is the Monument to Shipwrecked Sailors. The deep bay of La Herradura hides the remains of 25 ships of the Spanish Navy, and more than five thousand sailors. The La Herradura naval disaster occurred on October 19, 1562, due to a very large storm.
The monument to water is one of the many monuments you will find around town. This one in particular is very interesting to look at. These are really three separate statues; three bronze torsos (one male and two females) leaping over fountains of water. Because the artist created without heads or complete bodies, some think they are a work in progress, but we assure you they are complete.
