From almeria Airport

If you want to visit a small but historic Andalucian city, then Almeria airport is where to collect your hire car. The surrounding area offers some of Spain's finest and most unusual beaches - wide sweeps of sand hemmed in by rose-coloured cliffs. This area is as yet undeveloped, so it's a perfect destination for those who prefer quiet days lazing in the sun, away from busy towns and noisy crowds. Movie-lovers will enjoy a visit to the old Hollywood film sets, where many Westerns were filmed, and where you can still see gunfights and dancing girls in a saloon bar.

Hire a car is best way to get around as public transport is limited.  Consult our general Car Hire page
