Say hello to the... Costa de Almeria
The Costa de Almeria is one of Spain’s best-kept secrets, with its sugar-cube villages, rugged desert landscapes and oodles of unspoiled beach. Castles, natural parks, mini versions of movie sets – this dramatic coastline packs it all in. And don't forget to save some time for market stall-browsing.
- Hidden gem hunters- Less bustling than its fellow Costas and with even more sunshine, the Costa de Almeria delivers idyllic beach breaks without the crowds. It escaped the tourist boom of the 1960s and, as a result, has clung onto its many traditional and alluring charms.
- Beach lovers- The coastline is a patchwork of golden beaches and rocky coves. Some of the best spots are backed by relaxed resort towns, but stray from the beaten track and you can easily find yourself a tucked-away stretch of sand.
- Food & drinks lovers-Seafood fans will be in heaven. You can feast on everything from battered flounder to lobster. Try the bocas de la isla, a local dish made with crabmeat. Almeria also does a strong line in cured sausages and ham. Wash them down with a glass of local red wine or anise liqueur.
