Why go to Costa Almeria

Little-visited, underrated, and underdeveloped, the Costa Almeria is a beguiling alternative to Spain’s busier costas.

Sitting on a rugged stretch of Spain’s southern coast with otherworldly landscapes, absolutely stunning beaches and a vast nature park, Costa Almeria holidays promise outdoor adventures and great coastal fun wherever you base yourself.

The province’s main attraction is the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata-Nijar, an enormous protected coastal area with ancient geological formations and unspoilt beaches without the crowds. A handful of quaint fishing villages and larger towns dot the coastline, where you’ll find excellent accommodation, restaurants serving wonderful tapas and craft shops selling wares by local artists and creators.
