Those seeking a bustling atmosphere can visit Torre del Mar which is only 2km along the coast and has a wide range of shops, bars and restaurants. It has a long wide promenade for those late-evening strolls in the sun. From Torre you can get the new tram system to Velez Malaga (the original capital of Andalucia), which is around 5km inland. Benajarafe around 5kms to the West has a selection of quiet beach cafes and bars. Nerja is 20 minutes drive away with bars, restaurants & nightlife in quaint narrow streets and a visit to the local ancient caves and the nearby white hillside Spanish village of Frigliana is well worthwhile. Lake Vinuela National Park is 20 minutes inland with The Alhambra Palace, Granada & Sierra Nevada a 2 hour drive

There is a supermarket in Almayate village and Torre del Mar has a large hypermarket and (“Eroski”) shopping mall, aquapark and 10 screen cinema showing English films. The Local flee market is on Thursday. There is local go-karting, horse riding, bowling and tennis.
