The Costa de Almeria (Coast of Almeria), is tucked away in the southeast of Spain. This secret Costa is located in the region of Andalucia, Spain, and boasts a lively resort with a picturesque backdrop of the Sierra Nevada - offering a true away-from-it-all feel.

Costa de Almeria holidays offer a tantalising mix of golden sands, friendly hotels, whitewashed villages, seaside resorts, golden deserts and a variety of watersports. This gem of a coastline may have missed out on the explosion of Spanish tourism in the 1960s, since it was inaccessible, but today it's a hot spot for sun-kissed beach holidays in Spain.

If you want ultimate R&R, visit Cabo de Gata beach, Nijar Natural Park, and Paseo de Almería which are among the top attractions to visit on holidays to Costa de Almeria. Alternatively, you can head to the Cabo de Gata Lighthouse, the Museum of Almeria and The Cathedral of Almeria, for a spot of culture. For family holidays to Costa de Almeria, a visit to the Oasys Mini Hollywood theme park is a must-do, plus a trip to the Roquetas de Mar Aquarium makes for an equally impressive day out. If you consider yourself more of a beach bum, Costa de Almeria holidays boast a handful of Blue Flag stretches, backed by quaint fishing villages, shopping and a line-up of local restaurants and bars. Spain is known for its hot summers and pleasant winters, so a trip during spring or in the winter months would be best suited if you don't like temperatures to be too hot (27-28 °C in summer). The Almeria airport is 19km from Costa de Almeria, and there are regular flights to Costa de Almeria from many parts of U.K.

Relaxing Roquetas de Mar

 

 

Relaxing Roquetas de Mar

Low-key, relaxed and picturesque – Almeria is known for its chilled out beach communities. It also happens to be one of Spain's sunniest regions, so is perfect for sunbathers and watersports lovers. Roquetas de Mar is Costa de Almeria’s main resort, but instead of thumping bass lines and bustling beaches it has chilled vibe with a good mix of bars, restaurants and cafes. You can hang out at the Aguadulce Beach, which is 2km away – it’s the perfect place for seafood dining.

Almeria Port City Shopping

 

Almeria Port City Shopping

A day out in the port city of Almeria is a must. Here, the landscape is dominated by what looks like a fort, but it is actually a stunning cathedral. Explore the cobbled streets of the medieval old town before hitting the shops and restaurants of the new town on the other side of the city. A picturesque spot to take some holiday snaps.

 
Cabo De Gata-Nijar

 

Cabo De Gata-Nijar

Explore the eastern region, known as Levante, if you’re looking for the best of both worlds (or beaches) with a mixture of unspoilt and urbanised sands. The Natural Park of Cabo De Gata-Nijar is home to hidden coves, volcanic cliffs and different species of wildlife, while the western area, known as Poniente, is a tourist hot spot with plenty of attractions to enjoy.

 
Activities

 

Activities

The resort of Roquetas de Mar is home to Andalucia’s biggest aquarium, where you can get up close and personal with starfish and stingrays. Mario Park offers everything from swimming pools to a terrifying Black Hole ride and Kamikaze slides. If you want to try water sports, Roquetas de Mar’s Urban Beach is the place to go.

 
Food & Drink

 

Food & Drink

Wander the towns of the Costa de Almeria and you will discover friendly tapas bars with mouth-watering menus. Take a tour of the traditional bars, hopping from one to another for your pick of tasty treats. Check into one place for jamón serrano (cured ham), another for pulpo gallego (pot-cooked octopus), and then maybe on to a smoky old bar that serves just fino (dry sherry). Venture down to Berja in Almería province to sample some of their gastronomic delights and participate in their VIII Ruta de la Tapa festival.

 
Nightlife in Plaza Masnou

 

Nightlife in Plaza Masnou

If you’re looking to let your hair down, head for a string of bustling bars in Calle Trajano and Plaza Masnou. Night owls can see the evening through at music bars and summer disco marquees. Lots of towns have entertainment in the high season so it's worth checking out what’s on and, as with most of the Mediterranean, you will find just about all restaurants are family-friendly. Almería is full of lively tapas bars where tasty treats are served alongside your drinks.

 
Cultural Treasures in La Alcazaba

 

Cultural Treasures in La Alcazaba

La Alcazaba, built in the 10th century by Caliph Abd- al-Rhaman III, dominates the skyline and can be seen from any part of the city of Almeria. Entry to this fortress is free and visits can enjoy some of the best views of the city and port. Steeped in history, visitors will begin to understand the importance of Almeria in years gone by.

 
Natural Beauty in Almeria
