Spain’s secret Costa
Tucked into Spain’s south-east corner, between the Sierra Nevada mountains and the Mediterranean Sea, is the Costa de Almeria. This place missed out on the 1960s visitor boom that hit the other Costas because of poor road connections. As a result, it’s now far less touristy than its neighbours. You’ll find laid-back resorts, traditional whitewashed villages and beaches untouched by the holidaymaking masses.
Roquetas de Mar
The big resort here is Roquetas de Mar. It’s a seaside town with a wide belt of golden sand running alongside it. Although it used to be a quiet fishing village, it’s all grown up now – you’ll find everything from swish shopping malls and seafront restaurants to tiny tapas bars and Brit-style pubs.
When it comes to days out, the Costa de Almeria has no end of attractions. Just up the coast from Roquetas de Mar is the port city of Almeria, where you’ll find tree-lined boulevards and chic boutiques, all watched over by a huge Arab fortress. Wildlife fans should head for one of the area’s natural parks – Cabo de Gata is one of the best. Granada, home to the impressive Alhambra palace, is just a couple of hours away, too.
