Almunecar Beaches - Playa Muerto

Gorgeous views of Almunecar and craggy cliffs that run straight into the sea; these are the characteristics of Playa Muerto. It is somewhat more isolated than the other beaches in Almunecar due to its access through Playa Cotobro, its neighboring beach. Because of this relative privacy, Playa Muerto has been designated as a "playa naturalista" or nudist beach.

At certain times of the year, especially during the warmer months, Playa Muerto becomes a second home to many of the bohemian types that pass through the area.

For fun - at the western end of the beach there is a rather rigorous path that leads up the cliff behind you where you can enjoy beautiful views of Almunecar and Marina Del Este on the other side. You can contiue on this path for a little ways and eventually end up in the exclusive Punta de la Mona urbanization.
