Almayate: for a four-centre holiday!

You can't miss Almayate - it has the legendary black silhouette of the Osborne Bull dominating the skyline, the only one in the Axarquia. But unusually, even for the Axarquía, Almayate is split into various parts - Almayate Bajo, which is the main village; Almayate Alto, the original hamlet; plus two beach settlements, El Hornillo and the new Valle Niza.

The area around Almayate can probably lay claim to be one of the oldest continuously inhabited places in the Málaga province, and there are lots of interesting historical sites to visit, some going back nearly 3000 years.

However, for beach lovers, Almayate offers one of the last undeveloped stretches of coastline left in the province, the Playa de Almayate, a very large secluded beach offering peace and tranquility.
