It's utterly beautiful and unspoilt. The mountains are mostly not built on and there are miles of lonely coastline.
We count ourselves very fortunate to live within an hour of this unique place. It has some of the most beautiful, unspoiled beaches in the Med, some lovely little seaside places with proper Spanish bars and restaurants, flamingoes on the salt flats at Cabo de Gata, old gold mine workings and a (free to enter) botanical garden dedicated to the...

In the south of Spain, a few miles east of Almería, there is a delightful area that offers miles of unspoilt beaches with secluded coves, sand dunes and much more within a protected coastal reserve. It is the Cabo de Gata, a natural park that I think is quite splendid. It is one of my favourite areas in the province... More
We chose our out of season holiday in the Almeria province of Spain because we knew we would enjoy it in an area well away from the usual over commercialised beach tourist spots in Spain that are the usual haunt of my countrymen, with all those 'British bars' and fish and chip take-a-ways.

Went on coach tour passing by Oasys. Stunning scenery, huge mountains and desert where spaghhetti westerns, and Lawrence of Arabia were filmed. Very impressive.
Take a good car and be prepared for breath taking views, so take camera and swimmers for a quick dip!
Beaches with a mountain range behind them, and most important of all: very strict building restrictions!
We visited Cabo de Gata on a sunny and windy day which was a good combination for fotography. The sea was manifold and vivid. We shot from morning to evening in different places. Las Negras, Mirador de la Ametista, beaches by St Felipe castle (heavy waves) to mention a few. Why not also visit Rodalquilar old deserted gold mines. Everything... More
The vast park has some of the most beautiful scenery throughout Andalucia. The beaches are all stunning, small sheltered coves with clear water. Most have no facilities so you need to bring food & drink. Some of the small villages are unspoilt but with wonderful bars & restaurants giving you a most inviting welcome.
