The area under the Almuñecar is currently under construction because of the extensive damage caused by the rain in September 2007. This photo was taken at the source and was conducted through one of the tubes on the construction site. In the background it shows the symbol of Almuñecar, which is a small mountain as well-known as the saint. It's certainly one of the most photographed images of Almuñecar, only this time it's different.
The Puerta del Mar Beach is Almuñecar's prettiest and most popular beach, nestled inbetween the city's trademark rock jutting out into the bay and the downtown area. It has a nice wide beach with plenty of space to throw down your towel and grab some sun.
The promenade itself is also full of Moorish-inspired fountains, chiringuitos (Spanish beach-side bars), sitting areas, and the tropical fauna typical of the region's micro-climate. It's a great place for an afternoon drink with the breeze and the palm trees.
