The Andalucia region
The coast east of Almería in eastern Andalucía is perhaps the last section of Spain's Mediterranean coast where you can have a beach to yourself. This is Spain's sunniest region and the warmest part of Europe – even in late March it can be warm enough to strip off and take in the rays. A number of good beaches are accessible by bus, and in this hottest province of Spain they're worth considering during what would be the off-season elsewhere, since Almería's summers start well before Easter and last into November. In midsummer, it's incredibly hot (frequently touching 38°c/100°F in the shade and often well above), while all year round there's an intense, almost luminous, sunlight. This and the weird scenery have made Almería one of the most popular film locations in Europe – much of Lawrence of Arabia was shot here, along with scores of spaghetti Westerns. Inland, it has an almost lunar landscape of desert, sandstone cones and dried-up riverbeds.
Things to do in the Almeria region (within a 45 minute drive from Turre)
Near, Tabernas, in the unique desert of Europe, visit a unique park, recreating life in the wild west. On the sets used by some of the largest Western movies. Also more than 150 species of animals, the blue lagoon swimming area, actors re enacting western scenes, fossils, museum, parrot show, zoo and more.
You can visit the gypsum Sorbas caves in different ways depending on your physical conditions and concerns:Ther tours are quite affordable and prices range between 13 € and 9 € per child. They even offer a three menu lunch at their Restaurant at 13 € per person (10 € if you take a tour) Or if you prefer, you can have just a coffee on the Terrace-Bar.
*Cabo de Gata
Located in the south-eastern corner of Spain, Cabo de Gata-Níjar Natural Park is Andalucia's largest coastal protected area, a wild and isolated landscape with some of Europe's most original geological features. The eponymous mountain range is Spain's largest volcanic rock formation with sharp peaks and crags in red / ochre-hues. It falls steeply to the Mediterranean Sea creating jagged 100m-high cliffs, which are riven by gullies leading to hidden coves with white sandy beaches, some of the most beautiful in Andalucia. Offshore are numerous tiny rocky islands and, underwater extensive coral reefs teeming with marine life.
Fort Bravo is a Western-styled theme park in the province of Almería in Spain. Built in the early 1970s, it lies a few kilometers to the north of the N-340 road highway, near the town of Tabernas. Around 1977, Rafa Molina, a stuntman, bought the set for US$6,000 to improve his job opportunities if the set was to be used for filming. In the early 1980s, he started charging visitors money to tour the set. Mock shoot-outs and barroom brawls were later added, and one of the buildings was converted into a full saloon to sell beer. It is now known as Fort Bravo.
*Golf in Almeria
With ten courses now open and more on the way, Almeria is fast becoming the first choice for European Golfers.
Turre is one of the many towns in the beautiful region of Almeria Spain, with its whitewashed houses and flat roofs, it is of Muslim origin and stands on a hill surrounded by fertile land, only 3-5km inland from Mojacar popular for its beautiful beaches and whitewashed village. Turre is the ideal location to soak up some of the local atmosphere in this part of Almeria especially at fiesta time when the local community gather together.
Garrucha has a lovely Harbour with lots of fishing boats as the regular catch is brought in everyday by the local fisherman, during the summer months it attracts many from all around with its bustling night market.
Mojacar Pueblo is a beautiful picture perfect whitewashed village 3km from turre and is a must see whilst you are here with jaw dropping views stretching for miles on end and over looking the often snow capped mountains in the distance. Also with a selection of traditional restaurants serving favourites such as paella, tapas and sangria, you can also wonder around the local handycraft shops.

"Excellent apartment far better than hotel/apartment accommodation"
My husband our grown up children and their partners all stayed in this wonderful apartment last March. You could tell it was privately owned by all the personally touches around the apartment. It was spotless and well equipped. Both bedrooms have balconies and there is a sun terrace with a lovely clean pool upstairs (where we spent quite a few afternoons). Thanks to the notice board in the apartment we also had several good days out at Mini Hollywood, in Mojacar which has a wonderful long beach and you can park all day for nothing and at the caves in sorbas.
The apartment is well situated, just around the corner is a supermarket about 100m away are some good bars. One I think was called Jaleos where they did a really good steak and the other Messon del Pobre where they did 10 tapas and 10 beers for 12 euros. We also went to the market on Friday and brought some exquisite silver jewellery from the front stand ( I think the lady was called Tracy) and my daughter brought some lovely costume jewellery from her daughter - brilliant retail therapy in the sun. We wanted to return this year but I lost the contact number I had for the apartment but now I've found it on www.holidaylettings website I will be booking again. It was such good value in very nice surroundings. I was thinking I could take my parents because there is wheelchair access into the apartments and a lift.
It is advisable to hire a car if staying in Turre, we did from the airport so we could go wherever we wanted when we wanted.So it was really good the apartment even has its own parking space in the underground parking.
