Almunecar Guide

Almunecar

Picturesque Almunecar overlooks the crystal clear Mediterranean sea and is considered one of the prettiest along the Tropical Coast of Granada. Its ancient landscape is unique with mountains sloping down to the sea with mangoes, papayas, guavas and bananas growing along the way.

The old town of Almunecar dates back to 800 BC and is crowned with the remains of a Moor castle and the highest point, the Barrio San Miguel. Its cobbled streets wind through the town hall at the Plaza de la Constitución on to the central square and up to the Barrio. As you explore the town, you'll find the town's archeological museum and the Casa de Cultura, the principle cultural centre for the area. The City History Museum is found in the Castle of San Miguel and offers a glimpse into the rich history of the city.

On the sea front you will find the Playa Puerta del Mar, Almunecar's primary beach area. There are old watchtowers in various areas of the beaches that once offered protection from Berbers and pirates. Diving is a major attraction as well.

Dining in Almunecar is a delight with fresh fish taking the lead role on most menus. Some of the local favorites include; Arroz a banda, langoustines, hake and shellfish casserole. Another traditional meal is a meat, kid, with garlic and potatoes and all visitors must try the fresh local fruit, nuts, sugar and pumpkin in cazuela mohina or cazuela de San Juan.

The areas surrounding Almunecar offer visitors interesting day trips with fascinating sights as well. Motril is known for its golf courses, and the Spa at Lanjarón is home to their famous medicinal waters. The 3,000 metre high summit of Sierra Nevada and the National Park are just minutes away and offer skiing during the winter months and hiking during the warmer months.

Almunecar is a quaint city with a rich history and something for every visitor making it a great location for a holiday.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
