The Loro Sexi bird park (“Sexi” was the original name of Almuñecar!) has a fascinating collection of tropical birds on display, including peacocks, parrots, tucans, cockatoos, swans, ducks, ostriches and many other weird and wonderful species. In summer the park holds regular parrot shows for children. The park also has a cactus garden.
Entrance to the Loro Sexi parks, rather appropriately, in the Calle Bikini, just off the Plaza de Abderramín on the beachfront below the castle, a short walk from the centre of Almuñécar town.
