    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.

    The emblem of Almería's beaches. Every year there are more people and you have to get up early more by accesses, but continue to be the top in the middle of the concrete and the massification of the Mediterraneo.Importante catch a day with little wind.

  • 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
  • The best place in spain, beach and mountain
  • 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.
