Learn Spanish in Almuñécar

Overlooking the crystal-clear and calm Mediterranean Sea is considered one of the prettiest and most picturesque spots of the Tropical Coast of Granada - a mountain landscape rolling down to the sea where avocados, custard apples, mangoes, papayas, bananas and guavas grow. This is only possible because of the exceptional temperatures of the area, between 18°C (64°F) in the winter and 25°C (77°F) in the summer. Especially famous is the beauty of its sea floor.

The town is easy to reach, less than one hour drive from the cities of Malaga and Granada. The beauty of the old town which is reminiscent of other cultures and civilizations (Bronze, Phoenicians, Romans, Arabs and Christians) impresses visitors. These cultures and civilizations have shaped the image of a warm and welcoming town. The heart of the old town is laid out with parallel streets radiating from the plateau at the top of the hill, where San Miguel's Castle dominates the white houses that spread out around it.

Granada

With a population of 290.000 Granada is a lively university city in the South of Spain with excellent entertainment facilities. Granada has lived through the influences of the Iberian, Roman, Jewish and Islamic cultures and the city holds two of the world's greatest historical treasures, The Alhambra and El Generalife.

Granada is one of the most magical places in the world, full of beautiful contrasts, such as its privileged geographical location, near the snowy peaks of Sierra Nevada, with its famous ski resort, and the sun drenched beaches of the Costa del Sol and the Tropical Coast. In under an hour, you can be skiing on the peninsula's highest mountains or swimming in the Mediterranean Sea.
