Almunecar Beaches - Playa Cotobro

One of the more popular beaches in Almunecar is Playa Cotobro. Its location at the foot of the Cotobro Urbanization makes it perfect for families on holiday in nearby villas. In the last few years, a new hotel has been built directly across from the beach which provides its guests with easy access and a refuge for mid-day tapas and drinks.

Bathrooms and Changing rooms are available on the eastern side of the beach. Access to the neighboring Playa Muerto can be found on the westernmost part of the beach via a stone footpath that wraps around the cliffs edge.
