Beach holidays in Roquetas de Mar don’t just have to be about lounging on the sand. If you’re more of an active type, you’ll love the brilliant cycling and walking trails, whilst the open air concerts and fiestas of the area will give you a taste of the local culture. Couples, families and groups are all catered for on a holiday to Roquetas de Mar, so check out our great range of breaks to get yourself a good deal.

Both bird watchers and walkers will enjoy Parque Las Salinas and Puntas Entinas Sabinar Natural Park during their beach holidays in Roquetas de Mar. In the Las Salinas area in particular, a short route called the Puerta Verde de Roquetas de Mar is great for cycling and walking on the traffic-free Canada Real de la Costa, and there’s also a good sandy beach in the park. This whole area is a part of the route that stretches between Puntas Entinas Sabinar and Aguadulce for 15km. For those who are used to walking longer distances, there’s a 30km trek that runs alongside the Costa Almeria coastline. If you’re an outdoorsy type who enjoys walking, jogging and climbing, you’ll love this region because of its many natural parks. The climate away from the coastline is cooler, especially in spring and autumn, when all the rocks and trees in the parks will give you shade from the heat of the sun.   

The white villages that lie a few miles back from the coastline will give you an opportunity to explore traditional Spain, largely untouched and unchanged for centuries in some cases. Fiestas and carnivals are a big part of Spanish life and should be experienced at least once on your break to get a real taste of Spain.  Various patron saints are honoured throughout the year in festivals and celebrations that usually involve colourful parades ending up in the local church. The biggest festivals in Roquetas are the Fiesta De Santa Ana and La Virgen Del Carmen festival, which take place every July with singing, dancing and firework displays. 

The Town Council of Roquetas organises a series of open air concerts that showcase everything from jazz, pop and flamenco to classical music. There are also lots of shows specially aimed at children and these are great for families. There’s no entrance fee for any of these events, and the town’s Teatro Auditorio also stages some free concerts. However, when international stars like Jose Carreras and Montserrat Caballe turn up, as they often do, there’s usually a charge.
