4. Sport and free time activities in Almuñecar. Almuñecar is well known as a beachplace but in fact it is also very rich in sports and free time activities. Enjoy running or just a coffee in the morning sun, and in hour you are skiining from 10-17 in Sierra Nevada and you be back in Almuñecar in the evening for tapas on the beach. Is this really true? There is only 1 way to know – TRY Almuñecar. Below we have tried to explain and give details about many of the free time and sports activities in Almuñecar. But the list is not complete – so please feel free to ask any question. We are ready to assist you.
Swimming/Snorkeling. Almuñecar has mainly stone beaches so you will avoid sand everywhere J So if you want to go swimming then wet shoes is a good idea. Almuñecar is also a good place to go snorkelling, so bring this equipment if you have it or you can rent or buy it here in Almuñecar. You can either rent it in the dive shops (see information below) or you can buy it in the Chinese stores (cheap) or in the sport shops (professional)
Scuba diving. Almuñecar has 2 shops that offer scubadiving. 1 on the San Cristobal beach – just below apartment 5 (marked as A.5. on the map) and the other one just one the other end of the San Cristobal beach (right by tapas place T.1A. “Antonia Andaluzi”. Both shops arrange trips for beginners and advanced divers.
From the nearby port Marina del Este – you have different possibilities for sailing trips including snorkelling. Marina del Este is the only port in the Almuñecar area but in the summertime you can find speed boats and other water activites also on the beach front of Almuñecar. Just let us know if we should help.
Walking, Running or easy cycling. Taking a stroll, run or cycle along the Almuñecar beach front is a beautiful experience any time of the year. In the summertime try to avoid the hot hours. In Almuñecar we have a least 5-6 km of flat beach promenade perfect for walking, running or cycling.
SPORTS OFFICE. Inside the football stadium in Almuñecar, you find a municipality office where they offer you a wide range of sports f.x. you can rent tennis courts, sign up for walking or hiking in the mountains, yoga, different types of dances etc. We recommend that you start with visiting this office to find out about the different possibilities for sports and free time activities in Almuñecar. The office is placed in the stadium building just across from Almuñecars post office and our new fitness centre.

Skiing. Sierra Nevada is fantastic. Who will believe that you can go skiing in a short sleeved T-shirt. This is at least what the locals are saying J but even if this is exaggerated then we definitely recommend you to try skiing in one the best places in Europe. Normally Sierra Nevada opens up in November and closes down in April. More information on:
