visit cabo de gata the famous natural park with its virgin playas at the unique european desert located in the province of almería.
Starting off in the beautiful Cabo de Gata-Nijar Natural Park. Andalucia’s largest marine reserve and home to some truly stunning beaches. Playa de los Muertos, Las Negras and Genoveses deserve a mention, but narrowing down the selection to just two; Playa el Playazo and the majestic Playa de Monsul are our favourites.
Playa el Playazo sits almost midway along the coast in Cabo de Gata, not far from the village of Las Negras. It is an ideal place to visit with small children. The access is good, you can drive down and park right next to the beach. The water is also shallow and protected. And as with all beaches in the area it offers some great snorkelling.
Monsul really does not need any introduction. The picture perfect beach, has featured in Hollywood blockbusters, commercials and several local films.
Monsul symbolises what Cabo de Gata is all about, miles and miles of the most virgin coastline you could hope for.

Moving along from the desert landscapes of Almeria and heading westwards towards the beautiful Granadino coastline and the Costa Tropical. The desert starts to give way to mango groves, avocado plantations and citrus fruits. The further west you drive, the wetter and more tropical the landscape becomes. You can fully understand why this 60 mile stretch is known as Spain’s tropical coast.
Nestled between the Sierra Nevada mountains on one side and the warm Mediterranean on the other, the resulting tropical microclimate is very pronounced. The mountains drop straight into the sea, creating an almost surreal landscape of hidden beaches, tiny coves and inlets. Driving along the old N-340 and gazing out of the window is a joy, we have often seen pods of dolphins, tuna and every turning seems to hide another beautiful cove….see somewhere that takes your fancy? just pull over and try to make your way down.
One of the best in these parts is Playa de Rijana near the village of Castell de Ferro.
