  • What can I say of this wonderful place I Almeria... Not is how my opinion is objective, but I have to say that its beaches, its underwater funds... Probably not have nothing to envy to any other Andalusian coast. A ten place to rest, relax and enjoy nature but much better after last months of July and August where there are too many tourists.

  • 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 place to meet and enjoy. Visit in winter and seemed wonderful. Crystal clear water, calm seas, a volcanic environment of fine sands.
