The apartment is located within the newly built Porto Fino development in the marina at Almerimar, one of the most charming and unspoilt regions in Southern Spain.  The beautiful marina and fishing harbour is home to bars, restaurants offering local cuisine, shops and night-life.  The clear waters of the marina and beaches offer a variety of aquatic sports for the more active, including wind-surfing, snorkeling, diving, boating and yachting. Almerimar is regarded as one of the top destinations in Spain for Windsurfing and Kite Boarding. Tuition and hire is available close to the beach. If you prefer a slower paced holiday then you can enjoy a drink from one of the many coffee shops and watch the world go by in tranquility.

Almerimar Golf Course is opposite the Porto Fino apartment complex and our apartment looks out over the fourteenth hole.  Designed in 1976 by Gary Player and Rob Kirby it boasts a 72 point 18 hole course and has recently added an additional 9 hole course providing plenty of variety for the golf enthusiast.  Club and buggy hire is available from the pro shop. The fairways are wide and fast and are protected by large bunkers and beautiful leafy trees.  The 12th hole offers a challenge in itself, requiring a 100m shot over water to reach the island green. In addition there are 7 other golf courses in the area, including the famous Desert Springs golf course.

You can find more information on the local courses here.


The Sierra Nevada mountain range can also be seen from the balcony of the apartment.  Situated an hour and a half from the apartment the mountains are a stunning and romantic backdrop to the sunny paradise of Almerimar.  Sierra Nevada benefits from 7 months of snow a year making it possible to spend the morning skiing or snowboarding on the slopes, enjoying lunch off piste and then returning to the beach for the afternoon to soak up the sun whilst sipping an ice cold cocktail.
