On the south of the Peninsula, Coast of Almería opens to the Mediterranean Sea. Its landscape is very peculiar, deserted in some areas, full of crops of greenhouses in others, mountainous and rocky beaches or with dunes, offers us a wide range of possibilities for enjoyment and leisure.

In its towns and cities we find traces of ancient civilizations such as El Argar or Los Millares and a rich monumental heritage such as the Alcazaba in Almeria capital or the watchtowers and castles that are located along the coast, a sign of the historical importance of this zone.

At the end are the most modern cities and oriented towards the enjoyment of its climate, sea and beaches, with tourist complexes that make the Costa de Almería the ideal place to spend the holidays.

Towards the west, before Aguadulce, the coast becomes rugged with strong cliffs. From this point, a flat zone begins where numerous tourist nuclei are happening in full expansion. Roquetas de Mar, with wide beaches and magnificent hotel facilities. All along the coast there are tourist attractions where you can practice many sports such as golf, tennis, sailing, windsurfing, etc. Almerimar is a beautiful example. Beautiful beaches like Guardias Viejas, Balerma and Balanegra follow until arriving at Adra, population of Phoenician origin, that reached a great splendor in Roman time.

And to say of its natural spaces, the Natural Park of Cabo de Gata-Nijar offers us a paradisiac place with virgin and deserted beaches where to enjoy clean waters ideal for the practice of diving, sailing or windsurfing. An impressive spectacle of high cliffs struck violently by the waves.
