The town of Almayate in Malaga, Spain, is divided in half between its high plateau (Alto) and coastal (Bajo) area. Historically very ancient, Almayate remains essentially a small farming community. In recent years it has aquired a rather grand civic approach from the main N-340 coast road through the clearly rural agricultural landscape. The Bajo has access to a strip of beach and the few essential shops, while welcoming visitors, are not geared to the tourist trade. However, there is a new camping site in Almayate Bajo advantageously situated beside the beach with its own supermarket, camping supplies and full amenities for washing. There is a pool and there are playing facilities. Camp visitors have easy rapid connections to sample the larger resort towns and beaches in either direction. There is also an established naturist camp site about a kilometre further up the main road towards Torrox Costa.
