23 Photos that Will Make You Want To Visit Almuñécar, Spain

Ok, so I know I said I wasn’t going to blog about my one official holiday of the year, but I decided to make a slight exception by sharing a simple photo post of my time in Almuñécar. I love taking photos so I still brought my camera along to capture the best moments of our trip. From riding Andalucian horses in the Alpujarras Mountains to taking a catamaran boat trip around the Costa Tropical, I put together an awesome itinerary for my friends, combining activity and relaxation.

For one week of the year, I forgot about emails, pitches, blog posts and social media targets and just enjoyed things in the moment. And d’you know what? It felt bloody great. I would even go as far as saying it’s the most relaxed I have felt all year. That’s how I know it was different to my other trips.

If you want to read about the destination in more detail, I blogged about 7 Reasons to Visit Almunecar back in September, but for now, let me show you my week in pictures…

Our villa was a 10 minute walk from the town of Almuñécar, which is located on the Southern coast of Spain. It’s a 1 hour drive from Malaga so really easy to get to from the UK, but the town itself is completely off the map for most Brits. Nearly everyone in the town is Spanish and if you’re anything like me, this is a major plus point!

What do you think of my Almuñécar photo post? Are you craving a holiday for yourself? I’d love you to leave me a comment and tell me what helps you to switch off when you go on holiday x
