Cycle tourism in Cabo de Gata

The months of January, February and March are the best months weather wise, to enjoy a short escapade to Almeria and enjoy with family or friends a circuit of cycle tourism routes through the spectacular natural area of Cabo de Gata.

An increasingly popular activity, cycle tourism is one of the easiest sport activities to practise with the family, and at the same time, discover a new destination in a comfortable and relatively quick manner. During a long weekend of 4 days, you can cover the main cycling routes that the coastal area of Cabo de Gata has to offer, and even have time to relax and unwind at the hotel.

Departing from Retamar - The Toyo, where two of our best family hotels in Almeria are located, the Cabogata Mar Garden and the Cabogata Garden, the possibilities are almost endless: visiting the villages of Ruescas and Albaricoques, or take a trip to the hermitage of Virgen del Mar or even reach the beautiful church of Almadraba, next to the sea.

The landscapes are full of contrasts, typical Mediterranean vegetation, desert landscapes... and are worthy of the best photo albums, offering a wide range of colours as the sun moves over the horizon and the sea takes centre stage along the stunning Gulf of Almería.

A nice route is one that starts from El Toyo to the "Salinas" of the Natural Park, just behind the church of Almadraba on the exit of the village of Cabo de Gata. There is a road (ALP -822) that follows the coast and that, if followed beyond the salt grounds, through the area of La Fabriquilla, it leads to the so called reef of Las Sirenas. This road ends at a lighthouse with incredible views to the sea and very close to two beautiful coves, La Calilla and Cala de las Sirenas, perfect to enjoy a picnic before making your way back.

Choose Garden Hotels and enjoy the best of Almería.
