Fantastic news for divers on the Costa Tropical: Almuñécar presents its millionaire underwater park

The underwater park, which involves the recovery of the seabed, is the star project of the actions that the municipality is going to carry out.

Our houses are ideal to stay, 15 minutes from the center of Almuñécar, in the heart of the Costa Tropical and thus also be able to enjoy other beaches, landscapes and trails. You can make the reservation at

The sexitan park will have 10,000 square meters of extension. It will be located on the Peñón del Lobo, near El Muerto Beach. It will be approximately 200 meters from the coast and will be located at a depth of between 15 and 25 meters. Specifically, the placement of some 309 structures on the seabed is projected. The idea is to place a base of stones and columns to simulate a sunken city, where there will also be replicas of archaeological remains.

The underwater park will feature sunken ships. A concrete galley will be recreated to commemorate the naval shipwreck of La Herradura, which occurred in 1562 and appears in Don Quixote. The environmental organization Equilibrio Marino participated in the development of this project. Far from what it may seem, the installation of this kind of underwater museum will help to recover the maritime flora. It will be the first peninsular park, there is currently only one in Lanzarote, and it is intended to be similar to the underwater museum in Cancun.

The municipality of Sexita has also proposed some twenty more projects to become more sustainable, such as the embellishment with LEDs of the accesses to the town; the renovation of the beach furniture; the personalization of the historic center of La Herradura.
