The little-known South
Cabo de Gata
The highlight of the Almeria’s stunningly beautiful coastline is Cabo de Gata, a vast expanse of outstanding environmental and ecological value. This vast, untamed area of natural heritage is home to a large number of protected species.
The area is the ideal starting point from which to explore more closely this impressive Mediterranean landscape formed from a large expanse of volcanic soil. From here, visitors can follow the numerous trails that crisscross the Cabo de Gata-Níjar Nature Park, explore the underwater geo-routes or enjoy any of the countless outdoor sports on offer.
On the coast, dotted between the cliffs and inlets, large beaches such as El Toyo, which stretches out some 1,300 metres, offer superb leisure options for all the family.
The essence of Andalusia
El Rompido, Costa de la Luz
Huelva is the essence of Andalusia. True to its nickname - the ‘Costa de la Luz’-, Huelva’s coastline is bathed in a warm and brilliant light that tempts visitors to spend time relaxing and exploring this fabulous natural setting by the sea.
The mouth of the River Piedras and the tides have shaped a whimsical landscape alternating dunes and pine forests with fresh and salt water marshlands. A long sand spit shelters this area from the onslaught of the Atlantic Ocean. The arrow-shaped El Rompido sand spit guarantees the protection of the area’s vast environmental wealth, which forms a unique ecosystem that is home to protected species of major interest.
The town of El Rompido still retains the essence of a traditional fishing harbour.
