Costa de Almería

Almeria’s coastline is one of Andalucia’s great natural wonders. Encompassing heavenly beaches, plunging cliffs and wild tracts of arid scrubland, it has largely escaped unsightly development and remains an unspoilt and relatively unexplored part of the region. Hot spots include the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata-Níjar to the southeast and, to the north, Mojácar, a quaint hilltop pueblo with a vibrant beachfront scene.
