Almuñécar Beaches - Playas Cabria & Curumbico (Almunecar)

Playa Cabria
Getting There - Photos

Nestled under a very impressive rock point, adorned with an ancient watchtower, is the Playa Cabria. To the west is the newly built, Hotel Calida. Being so close to the new 4 star hotel, the beach has gained in popularity over the past few years. The beach is 250 meters in length plus the 120 meters on the Curumbico side.

The Playa Cabria area has almost a small village like feel to it; maybe that’s why it’s so popular with the locals. There is one small restaurant that sits right on the beach and then others trail back into the dry river bed. A walk through this area reveals quant bars and restaurants that create a tropical village like atmosphere.

The beach itself is very natural and beautiful. It is located about 5 minutes from town making it a fairly quiet beach and a favorite among local divers. You will often see divers in full scuba gear going in and out of the surf.

This beach is a good choice for children because the water is shallow and not usually rough.

Playa Curumbico
Continuing across Playa Cabria towards the point (going east) you will come across a walkway that has been constructed over the water and around the rocks. This is a popular place for many local fishermen. Once on the other side you are officially on Playa Curumbico. This is the only access to this hidden cove unless you enter by water. Because of its relative privacy, this is a good spot for nude sunbathing. It also seems to be much quieter and more peaceful than some of the other rowdy, family-oriented beaches. This beach has semi-fine grey sand and no immediate facilities.

Just for fun:  Hungry?  The new Hotel Calida has a huge buffet that is served most afternoons. Anyone is welcome to go but the price is pretty steep. The last I checked the price was about 20.00 Euros per person but the quality of the food and the variety on the buffet makes it well worth it.
