Almunecar Nightlife

 

Latest Update from Almunecar:

27/04/12 - Almunecar isn't far from the Sierra Nevada Mountains so a visit early in the year could combine lazy days on the beach with a trip up to the Spanish ski resorts, less than an hour away. Visit in March 2013 and you'll be able to watch the final of the World Championship Snowboarding Competition from the 18th to the 26th.

02/02/13 - A rather unusual but fascinating exhibition is being held in Granada, less than 20 minutes from Almunecar. Entitled 'Brain:The Inside Story', the exhibit tells through lots of different ways how the brain works and what it does. Located in the Museo Parque de las Ciencias, it's free to enter and appeals greatly to children.
