Almuñécar Beaches - Playa Puerta del Mar, (Almunecar)

Playa Puerta del Mar
Getting There - Photos

One of the most popular beaches in Almunecar and the busiest is Puerta del Mar. It lies to the east of the Peñon de Cristobal and stretches from the great rock all the way up the coast to the AquaTropic water park. From Puerta del Mar you have breathtaking views to the ancient San Miguel castle and the cross atop the mighty Peñon. The Punta de la Mona and Marina del Este can been seen in the distance.

Puerta del Mar is an oddly shaped beach with jetties and other areas that jut out into the water forming interesting points and small coves for swimming. This pretty beach is Almunecar's second longest and runs the entire length of town providing access to numerous amenities and accommodations. On the western end of the beach, below the Peñon, is a smaller beach that most consider to be part of Puerta del Mar. This smaller beach is very lively and popular with the youth as it has many Tropical, open air bars and clubs that sit right on the beach with outdoor sofas and lounge seating available.
