Costa Almeria offers real value for money all year round. Great hotel deals are available on Quickrooms.com from 2015 through to 2016.

Costa Almeria stretches from Roquetas de Mar on the southern coast of Spain in the region of Andalusia to the border with Murcia, on the east coast of the country.  It is a region of huge contrasts, from wild, rocky seascapes to the only European desert. You will find little whitewashed villages clinging to the hill sides to wide open beaches with lots of space and wonderful clean seas.

Almeria has great appeal, built at the foot of a mountain range, topped by the magnificent Alcazaba, an Arab fortress built by the Caliph of Cordoba.  Spend time within Almeria’s winding streets, visit its fine museums, and dining out on the local cuisine.

The Cabo de Gata is a protected natural area, offering great chances for bird watching, rambling and walking.  There are small villages with wonderful views, super beaches and a laid back life style. Maybe try Aqua Amarga, really stunning or Carboneras with sea front restaurants and a good beach.

But most visitors head for the beach, a long, clean and sandy stretch with lots of water sports, restaurants and cafes offering everything from fish and chips to Paella.

The coast line between Vera and the north is spectacular, with winding roads and great sea views, with little coves and small secluded sandy beaches tucked away between the rocky outcrops. If you are looking for a peaceful hideaway, this area is undisturbed by modern development.  San Juan de los Terreros is a small holiday village, popular with the Spanish holiday maker with small hotels and lots of self catering properties.  It has smaller but clean, beautiful sandy beaches. It is followed up the coast by Aguilas, which is bigger and offers more choice and variety. 

However, Costa Almeria is not all about the coast!  Car hire is easy and relatively inexpensive, so get out and about.  Try Sorbas with it’s village houses clinging onto the rock face, local potteries and a few nice restaurants around the main square.  A little further on you will find Tabernas, famous for being the centre of the only European desert as well as the location for the film set of the Clint Eastwood films A fistful of Dollars and it‘s sequels.

This is a many faceted area of Spain, not as busy as the Costa del Sol, with smaller, quieter more Spanish resorts, as well as the busy areas around the larger towns. Many resorts are ideal for children and families.  It offers superb weather, beautiful beaches, lots of accommodation to choose from and the chance of a really relaxing holiday!

Just as a taster, Hotel Puente Romano is a fabulous beachfront property built as an Andalucian village in subtropical gardens with fountains and waterfalls.

Still looking for a bit more to do?  Visit the ‘white village’ of Mijas, stroll around the cobbled streets, or a day away in the mountains in Ronda, with it’s famous gorge, little back streets, well known bull ring and fabulous restaurants.  It’s only  an hour away, but a world away from the Marbella sea front.
Want a bit of Britain?  Go to Gibraltar, a great day trip, even British Bobbies, see the Rock, walk inside and visit the gun emplacements, but don’t feed the apes!!  Or further afield, take the boat to Tangier in Morocco and have a full day in Africa! Rather different to Spain, really interesting and such a different culture. Also a bit further, you can get to Cordoba or Seville. Lots of choice if you are looking to explore the area.  Of course, you might just roll down the coast and find a different beach for the day, try San Pedro or Estepona or seek out a quiet little cove, away from the crowd. 

Marbella, even the name conjures up visions of sunny beaches, top class hotels, vibrant nightlife and wonderful food all set in the surroundings of southern Spain. A must visit location, you will want to return again and again!
