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.
