Costa Almeria

The Costa Almeria is one of Spain’s best kept secrets with hundreds of miles of golden sand and quaint coastal villages to explore and enjoy. The resort of Roquetas de Mar has a beautiful marina from which to enjoy the local tapas and seafood whilst providing convenient and modern beachside amenities. However, with the rugged Sierra Nevada mountains, national parks and the Tabernas desert in its hinterland, the Costa Almeria possesses a diverse landscape to show that there is more to this area of Spain than just its stunning beaches. The town of Almeria also provides a great place for relaxation and hosts excellent dining opportunities around the Plaza Vieja. With much less tourism than other parts of the Spanish coast, the Costa Almeria showcases a more traditional side of Spanish life and provides an unforgettable relaxing break.
