The Almeria area guide

Set in the region of Andalucía, the beautiful province of Almería has been appreciated by many film and TV show makers for years. The stunning natural beauty of the deserts, seas, and national parks, along with its rich history and architecture, has made this a beauty spot admired by many, but visited by few. Relatively untouched by mass tourism, the area provides the perfect mix of history and local culture for those wanting to enjoy an authentic Spanish experience.

Things to do

It’s easy to see from the moment you arrive in Almería that the area is soaked in history. Almería’s history dates back over a thousand years and has hosted the great civilisations of the past. Its museums, fortresses, and religious buildings ensure that no day is without something new to explore. For those more interested in the natural beauty on offer, Almería boasts a nature park that has inspired film makers and writers alike; from spaghetti westerns to Game of Thrones, Almería has hosted them all. In fact, if you’re a particular fan of Westerns, then a few miles from Almería you will find Oasys Mini Hollywood which offers the Wild West experience which is great fun for all ages.

The natural beauty of Almería is what brings most to the region. The Cabo de Gata Nijar National Park and Nature Reserve is an area of pure and natural beauty. The park, set against the backdrop of a volcano, is untouched by urbanisation. Within the park, you can take a walk and enjoy the natural beauty on offer, or - for the more adventurous - kayaks, caving, and mountain climbing are all available. The park spans across towns and small villages, ensuring there’s always somewhere to stop for food or coffee. And, with the region famous for having very little rain fall, there will be few days in the year where this park cannot be enjoyed.

The vast coastline of the region offers many beaches and coves for those who want a day by the sea. The crystal clear water and the warm temperatures have so far not been overrun with tourism, as with some other coastal regions in Spain, so you’ll be sure to find your own part of the coast to enjoy.

Places to eat

Having hosted many of history’s great civilisations, Almería has lots to offer if you’re willing to look. As you’d expect, however, the main food on offer is Tapas. For those wanting to broaden their taste buds, Almería boasts a Tapas Trail, taking you from restaurant to restaurant, offering their signature dish at each new stop. For reasonably priced restaurants, the Puerta de Purchena at the end of Paseo de Almeria is highly recommended.

When it comes to cafes and bars, Almería is in no short supply. Many traditional Moorish tea shops still exist where you can enjoy a drink in stunning surroundings. You can also find many good bars and restaurants in the old town, close to the town hall.

Shopping

From shopping malls to markets, Almería has them all. As with all cities in Spain, you can easily find shops for your day-to-day needs, such as Zara and Primark, or supermarkets for food and the essentials. There are also many markets and independent shops to visit, ensuring you never need go without. The region’s main export is fauna, fruit, and vegetables - which are grown all year round thanks to the steady climate - and on Thursday mornings the Street Market of Roquetas de Mar is held, where local farmers come to sell their produce.

Getting there and around

Almería receives regular flights from across Europe and the UK making it easily accessible via its local airport. Once in Almería, the region is well connected with bus routes and trains to other Spanish destinations. Although buses are available, you might want to buy a car to ensure you can enjoy all that the area has to offer including is 100km coast line.
