Nestled in Spain's south eastern corner between the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the Mediterranean Sea is the small coastal region of Costa Almeria. This quiet area has been virtually untouched so you can expect relaxing beach days and leisurely walks exploring this beautiful corner of Spain.
Costa Almeria was once a quaint fishing village but it has since expanded and now you can find shopping outlets, seafront restaurants, Spanish cuisine and British style pubs. Because of the changes Costa de Almeria is slowly beginning to bring more and more visitors who have come to experience the stunning landscapes, deserted beaches, and peaceful resort atmosphere.
Costa de Almeria has a few laid-back resorts and classic villages including its largest resort of Roquetas de Mar, a seaside town with stretches of golden untouched sand. Costa de Almeria may be small but it still has some interesting sights and history to explore.
The utterly peaceful resort of El Toyo is a place to unwind, but it's close to the region's capital Almeria and a huge national park. The large, luxury hotels and 18-hole golf course will keep you busy in El Toyo itself, as well as the huge swathe of sand.
This Spanish town is split between a charming old town set in the Spanish mountains that overlooks a popular coastal area with dreamy beaches. Families can enjoy fun quiet holidays to Mojacar while couples can find the relaxation they've been looking for.
