With the sun burning bright on most days of the year, sightseeing in and around Almuñécar is a pleasure. Most of the town's monuments are from the Phoenician, Roman and Moorish eras - the Castle and the fish-salting works. Other principal attractions are the weekly market, the main seafront, which has become a very attractive promenade, the water park, ideal for kids of all ages, and the Bird Park, engagingly called Parque Loro-Sexi. Local car hire is available to visit the Tropical Valley and explore some of the dramatic local countryside, including the Rio Verde and Seco river valleys and the Peña Escrita nature reserve. The Moorish Castle is built on Roman foundations, what remains is mostly from the Arab and Christian eras. It contains an interesting museum as well as offers excellent views of the beach and town. Not far from the Castle is the small but impressive Archaeological Museum.
