Amusement Park
“The only salt water aqua park in Spain, Aquatropic’s rides, slides and attractions will entertain adults as well as kids for hours. Water park classics such as the Zig Zag, Kamikaze and Wave Pools are on offer alongside amusements with rather more tantilising names: Black Hole or Whirlwind, anyone? When you need a break from the water-themed larking about, there are plenty of places to head to refreshment, including a self service restaurant and bar and a waffle kiosk. ”

Park
“The path that leads down the side of the San Miguel castle and back into town brings you out into the small but lovely Majuelo Botanical Gardens. This shaded, verdant little paradise is home to more than 200 species of sub-tropical plants, trees and flowers from all over the world. Particularly noticeable as you wander around these immaculately-maintained gardens are the Sabal Palm (from Cuba and Florida) and other varieties of the same species from Central America, the Philippines and New Zealand. ”

Castle
“Although there has been a fortress in Almuñécar since Phoenicians occupied the city, the structure we see today dates mainly from the town’s Moorish period, between 755-1489. It was heavily damaged during the Napoleonic Wars and from 1830 was used as a cemetery for over 130 years before restoration work on the castle began in 1986. Though it continues at intervals, the bulk of the reconstruction has been done and the outer walls, in particular, are stunning. The castle also houses a small but interesting archaeological museum containing artifacts from different periods of its history and offers impressive views of the rocky coastline beneath its walls and turrets”
