Almuñecar boasts long beaches and promenades with lots of bars and restaurants specialising in fresh caught local fish. The white washed old town has a catacomb of alleys with lots of shops and a local daily food market and has a very typical Spanish feel. There is also a weekly Friday mixed market to enjoy.
