Almerimar has a Port-Marina and a fishing harbor. More people each year are discovering the beaches, the sun and the natural beauty of this area. If you are looking for a relaxed way of life, free from stress, in a healthy environment, then Almerimar is for you, but if you fancy a bit of adventure and a dose of adrenalin, it's only an hour and a half’s drive from the snows of the Sierra-Nevada Ski Resort and mountains, where activities like hiking, rock climbing, canoeing, and cycling are just some of the other options to skiing.
A Port-Marina and a fishing harbor adorn the bay of Almerimar, but its 18 hole golf course is one of its main attractions. The club has all necessary facilities, such as the hire of clubs, golf buggies and a shop. Water sports are also a main feature of this resort, offering a wide range of activities. You can practice all kinds of aquatic sports such as wind-surfing, swimming, fishing, diving, boating and yachting.
A morning skiing, feeling cold, drinking hot drinks, practicing your skills on the slopes, a spot of lunch, approximately an hour and a half’s drive back to Almerimar to spend the rest of the afternoon soaking up the sun on the beach with a nice cold cocktail in your hand. A contrast like that within reasonable time for a day’s activities is not available in many places in the world. Well worth doing to boast to all your friends.
