  • A visit to the lighthouse and its beaches, coves and viewpoints is a must. I recommend to go to lunch at la Isleta del Moro

  • We have been in family in San Jose pra enjoy the Cabo de Gata. We came with good recommendations on peoples, restoration, etc and the truth is that it was all wonderful. The spectacular scenery, beautiful beaches, good food and good time, more can ask for? Without a doubt it is a tourist destination that is well worth visiting and enjoy.

  • Spectacular place to enjoy the sea and the environment. It is a near luxury. There are coves, wonderful beaches (the genoveses, Mónsul, San Jose,...) with fine sand and a clean sea. There are great places to eat very well.

  • Nice place to visit. A lot of natural beaches and red mountains Unfortunately the region is strewn with glasshouses (plastic) for the cultivation of tomatoes. Not understandable (nature reserve) and ugly. Simon Visit my website: www.noireblanc.de

  • A really special place with a certain magic. One of my favorite destinations in Spain.
  • Natural
  • A place to meet and enjoy. Visit in winter and seemed wonderful. Crystal clear water, calm seas, a volcanic environment of fine sands.
