The phrase ‘something for everybody’ is perfect for Costa de Almeria. With a great variety of sandy beaches, nature reserves, waterparks and theme parks, as well as historic monuments, you’re never short of options for a fascinating day out. 

Historic ruins dotted around the landscape give a hint of the different civilisations that have settled in Almeria over the centuries. Dominating the local skyline, The Alcazaba of Almeria is the largest Muslim fortification in Spain and was originally designed as a military camp. Today, it has been converted into plush green gardens that kids will love to explore.

Mini Hollywood in Almeria is a unique film set theme park with a Wild-West set and a Mexico-themed set, ideal for a fun day out with the kids. You can even rent a steed for some horseback adventures at high noon in the ‘barren desert’. Get ready for a day to remember as the theme park often puts on Wild-West themed plays with actors acting out thrilling scenes. When you’re just about tuckered out, make your way to the saloon for a drink or visit The Arizona Restaurant for an all you can eat buffet.

Almeria is a paradise for beach lovers, with amazing weather and pure white beaches the main draw for this destination. Remarkably unspoilt, you’ll feel like you’ve stumbled upon a hidden gem in the Mediterranean, particularly in secluded bays like Cabo de Gata.

While you’re exploring, it’s worth noting that Costa de Almeria is home to some of the most delicious food Spain has to offer. Succulent fresh fish make up a large part of the local delicacies in the area, with rice accompanying many seafood specialities such as lobster.
