It might come as a surprise to find peaceful holidays in Costa Almeria snuggled up alongside the party nights of the better-known Costa Del Sol. You won't be disappointed with the discovery though.
This lovely area basks in hours of sunshine and features some of the most striking natural scenery of Spain's entire Mediterranean coastline...
Costa Almeria, or Costa de Almeria to give the coast its full name, enjoys some of the longest sunshine hours in all of Spain - and the lowest annual rainfall. These statistics alone attract holidaymakers, though the arid desert-like landscape of the interior, the cultural city of Almeria and the raw beauty of the region also play their part.
Parts of Costa Almeria, which is in Andalusia, feel like the Spain you might have experienced before mass tourism arrived 50 years ago. But despite being speckled with pretty villages, fishing harbours and isolated sandy coves, the region is also home to plenty of thoughtfully laid out holiday resorts where you can find everything you need for a great break under the Spanish sun.
Roquetas de Mar, for example, is the most popular resort for Costa Almeria holidays. It has hotels, restaurants, shops and bars, and attracts many holidaying Spaniards as well as Brits - although you should not see the overcrowded beaches that can mar holidays in resorts on some of the other, more popular Spanish Costas.
Mojacar Playa, meanwhile, is the second of the two main resorts on the Costa Almeria and lies in close proximity to the beautiful Moorish mountain village of Mojacar. But wherever you stay on the Costa Almeria, consider hiring a car to get out and about and see this gorgeous strip of Spain.
Costa Almeria is easy to get to, with flights arriving at Almeria Airport (LEI) and nearby airports such as Malaga. And once you get there, there is a great selection of hotels and self-catering accommodation, as well as myriad restaurants where you can try local dishes and sample some of the region's excellent wines.
Can't wait to gorge on the tastes of the Costa Almeria? Use the search tool on TravelSupermarket to find your ideal break in the sun, whether you are looking for Mojacar holidays, Roquetas de Mar holidays, holidays to Retamar or a break anywhere else on this sunny coast.
*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.
ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
