The Costa Almeria is as varied as any of the Spanish Coasts. The coast is completely unspoilt. To the east of Almeria 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 Jose. West of Almeria is the highly developed tourist resorts of Roquetas de Mar and Aguadulce. These have all the facilities of any modern resort to support the package holiday market. At the north of the Costa de Almeria 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. Costa Almeria in Spain, one finds extremes of desolation and life. As much as there are barren wastelands, the idyllic coastline so named Costa Almería couldn’t more jovially define the throbbing life of the Province of Almería. The said Spanish province prides itself in nearly 200 miles (322 km) worth of uneven though scenic coastline, a reputation of which is one of the finest.
The coast, which lies southeast of the Iberian Peninsula on the Mediterranean Sea, is a consistent crowd-drawer, what with attractive packages that lure tourists to the plush developed resorts near the main towns. These tourist resorts apparently are equipped with complete facilities of any modern resort catering to the active package holiday market. Unspoilt and loveable, Costa Almería is above all reputed for its plenty of idyllic natural attractions. Nature-lovers may in wanton liberty explore the unruffled fishing villages dotting the coast, as well as the invigorating stretch of the fine sandy beaches.
