The province of Almería is located in the southeast of the Iberian Peninsula, on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. In its 8,774 square kilometers of surface it presents great geographical contrasts. The passage of time has also caused disparity in the landscape. Thus, in Almería we can enjoy modern and crowded tourist centers and natural spaces where humanity has barely left its mark.
The climate is Mediterranean, warm and dry, with little rainfall and a high number of hours of sunshine per year -more than 3,000-. Its temperatures remain mild throughout the year, not dropping below 13ºC on average in winter or exceeding 25ºC on average in summer. The benign climate allows the visitor to enjoy all the possibilities offered by the province at any time of the year. Perhaps because of this scenic beauty or because of its geographical location, many towns have visited it throughout history. The important archaeological remains discovered in the province have allowed researchers to learn about and analyze the existence of ancient cultures.
On the Almeria coast you can enjoy the varied folklore and the numerous festivals, inherited from your ancestors, as well as the painstaking work in popular crafts (pottery, ceramics, esparto grass, jarapas and marble). Inherited from the past are also its gastronomic specialties, such as paprika, gurullos, porridge or seafood soups.
Almerimar is located in a privileged setting on the south west of Almeria. This is the sunniest area in Europe, with over 3,000 hours of sun a year, and average annual temperature of no less than 20º C. On top of that, everything is only a short distance away. It is located on the beachfront of the exclusive Almerimar residential area, 200 m from one of the best Mediterranean marina and next to a renovated golf course. The Almerimar golf course has 27 holes embedded into a beautiful landscape of palm trees and lakes. Lovers of this sport will surely enjoy this flat golf course with wide pathways and well-kept green spaces.
Punta Entinas-Sabinar Natural Park
It is located on the southeast coast of the Iberian Peninsula, between El Ejido and Roquetas de Mar (Almería). A Mediterranean sub-arid ecosystem where the combination of four main biotopes stands out: sandy beaches, dune systems set by Mediterranean scrub, endorheic zone of salt lakes and ponds.
Cabo de Gata
Cabo de Gata-Níjar Nature Park was Andalusia's first marine-terrestrial protected area. This area is also internationally recognised as a biosphere reserve on account of the contrasts that it has between marine, coastal and terrestrial environments, the numerous exclusive species to be found here and the unique characteristics of one of Europe's most arid ecosystems. It was also designated by UNESCO as Global Geopark.
To the south of the Peninsula, the Costa de Almería opens to the Mediterranean Sea. Its landscape is very peculiar, deserted in some areas, full of greenhouse crops in others, mountainous and with rocky beaches or dunes, it offers a wide range of possibilities for enjoyment and leisure. In its towns and municipalities we find traces of ancient civilizations such as El Argar or Los Millares and a rich monumental heritage such as the Alcazaba in Almería capital or the watchtowers and castles that are located along the coast, a sign of the historical importance of this zone. At the end are the most modern cities oriented towards the enjoyment of its climate, sea and beaches, with tourist resorts that make the Costa de Almeria the ideal place to spend the holidays. To the west, before Aguadulce, the coast becomes rugged with strong cliffs. From this point, a flat area begins where many touristic nuclei follow one another in full expansion. Roquetas de mar, wide beaches and magnificent hotel facilities. Throughout the coast, tourist continue to practice numerous sports, such as golf, tennis, sailing, windsurfing, etc. Almerimar is a beautiful example. Beautiful beaches such as Guardias Viejas, Balerma and Balanegra follow one another until reaching Adra, a town of Phoenician origin, which reached great splendor in Roman times.
