The Costa de Almeria region
The Costa de Almeria has plenty of fine sandy beaches with clear water and some deserted beaches along the coast. To the east of the natural park of Cabo de Gata has lots of volcanic formations and contains some lovely towns and villages that are well worth a visit. Almeria has plenty of tapas bars, pubs and nightclubs. The cathedral is also worth a visit.
Roquetas de Mar
Roquetas de Mar itself is a typical fishing village, with a pretty harbour, whitewashed houses and a ruined castle. The resort itself though has grown up just 2km from here and boasts long beaches, restaurants of various nationalities, boutiques and shops selling local crafts and pottery.
Roquetas has opted for a refreshingly different approach to the high-rise buildings that bristle along much of the spanish costas. Check out the Gaudi-esque turrets and unusual curves that give the resort its interesting and distinctive feel.
If you have a car, then you could head off into the Alpujarra mountains for some stunning scenery, or even visit the desert areas of the Campo de Tabernas with its Wild West landscapes - not suprisingly, there's a thriving film industry here!
Roquetas also has lots available locally, boasting 3 golf courses, a number of beaches including the blue flag-accredited Playa Serena, water sports, and the Mariopark Waterpark on Camino las Salinas. Punta Entinas offers the chance to get back to nature, where a wide range of colourful birds and other wildlife live in a protected environment. Lots more on offer too, with both English and Spanish bars offering Tapas, music and entertainment, and several Fiestas happening throughout the year!!
