about

The coastline varies enormously in the degree and type of development along it. The stretch of shore between Granada province and Almería city is the most blighted by plastic greenhouses, although it has the occasional wildlife oasis, such as the lakes in the Albuferas de Adra Natural Reserve, which attract numerous aquatic birds undeterred by the sea of plastic that surrounds them. El Ejido is the epicentre of the plastic greenhouse agriculture.

To the east of Almería we find the rugged and desolate coast of the Cabo de Gata - Nijar natural park. This is an arid desert landscape and the annual rainfall here is less than 200mm. It is sparsely populated, few villages and a very low population density. Visitors feel a sense of exploration here as many of the coves can only be reached on foot. This area is particularly popular with nature lovers and back-packers. The most popular coastal village is San José.

At the north of the Costa de Almería is the naturist beaches of Vera, a number of new complexes are being constructed here. A little further south is Mojacar which successfully combines the popular beach holiday with the hillside white village that tourist love to explore.

Almería city is worth a visit with the Alcazaba castle overlooking the metropolis.
