Costa de Almeria

The Spanish province of Almeria with its over 200 miles of varied, picturesque coastlines is the preferred destination of thousands of tourists wishing to soak in Southern Spain's warm weather and scenic beauty. Costa Almeria attracts tourists to its first class resorts and idyllic spots in the countryside like fishing villages, sandy beaches and secret coves which are very popular to nudists.

Almeria is the capital of the Andalusian province, situated in the middle of the bay to which it got its name. The Costa de Almeria covers almost a quarter of the entire Andalusian coastline and has the second highest number of hotels in the region with nearly 15,000 establishments. Seventy nine percent of these hotels are situated along the western coast between Adra and Almeria.

The Costa Almeria offers one of Spainís most intriguing coastlines, filled with highly developed resorts such as those in Roquetas de Mar and Aguadulce to the rugged and desolate beaches such as those along the Cabo de Gata - Nijar natural park. With its arid desert landscape and less than 200mm of rainfall here per year, the area is sparsely populated and is a haven for nature lovers and back-packers wishing to explore the many hidden coves along the coastline.

Almeria is home to a number of historical landmarks. One of the most conspicuous landmarks is the Alcazaba, a huge Moorish fortress with three walled enclosures constructed in 995 AD. A 16th century cathedral also dominates the landscape. The church houses some Christian art treasures such as the Ventura Rodriguez-designed tabernacle dating form the 18th century.
