The town of Almuñécar was founded by the Phoenicians two thousands years ago, 76 km from Granada and 85 km from Malaga. It is situated in a tropical valley on the so called "Costa Tropical" where the average temperature is 18ºC during the winter and 26ºC during the summer. Even bananas and papayas grow here.
Almuñécar has a picturesque old town centre with white houses and small winding lanes of the "Barrio de San Miguel". The modern part of the small town has been built around this quarter and above all along the kilometre-long beach.
The infrastructure has been carefully coordinated to the needs of Spanish tourism and offers many possibilities. You can choose among a wide range of sports and leisure time activities, or enjoy the gastronomy and night life.
The Summer School of the Granada Colegio Hispanico is situated in the town centre near the beach. Lessons and leisure time become almost one event. The team of involved teachers continue long after the lessons are over.
The leisure time activities are the main attraction of these courses. Welcome parties set the tone with paella on the beach, movies and parties with Spanish people.
