To the east of Almeria capital is the rugged and desolate coast of Cabo de Gata. Some of Spain’s most beautiful and least crowded beaches are strung along this coast.
The area is still considered wild with extraordinary scenery. Visitors feel a sense of isolation and it is particularly popular with back packers and nature lovers.
It’s still possible to find deserted beaches without too much difficulty.
West of Almeria capital is the highly developed resorts of Roquetas de Mar and Aguadulce.
Almerimar, further west has the best windsurfing conditions on Andalucia’s Mediterranean coast.
Mojacar is Almeria’s main and growing resort, stretching for a couple of miles along the seafront.
It boasts an excellent beach with warm, clear waters, flanked by chiringuitos (beach bars) and discos.
Nightlife is available all along the strip with shops and, bars and restaurants. Head for the Paseo del Mediterraneo, the main road along the beach.
Three kilometres from Mojacar in the direction of La Garrucha is located a 18-hole golf course beside the sea.
