The Costa de Almería, ("Coast of Almería") is part of the autonomous community of Andalucia on Spain's sunny South Eastern Mediterranean coast. Almeria is one Spain's least developed costas with around 217 km (135 miles) of beautiful, unspoilt coastline and is home to some of Spain's most stunning, wild beaches such as Playa De Los Cocedores, Playa De Los Muertos and Playa Cabo De Gata. The Costa Almeria stretches from San Juan De Los Terreros on its Northern border with the region of Murcia down to Adra in the South on the border with Granada. It features some very contrasting landscapes from arid desert areas and imposing mountains to idyllic cove beaches and picturesque fishing ports.
Some of the key tourist destinations on the Costa Almeria are Vera Playa, Mojacar, Garrucha and Roquetas Del Mar. All these resorts are stylish, low-rise, family-friendly, beach resorts and are very popular Summer destinations for both Spanish and Northern European holidaymakers. In addition, the Costa Almeria has some of the most stunning natural parks in Spain such as the Cabo de Gata Natural Park, the Punta Entinas-Sabinar Nature Reserve and the Island of San Andres.
More remote than its Northern neighbours, the Costa Almeria is most easily accessed from either Almeria Airport or the South or the new Region of Murcia International Airport to the North. Most of the popular resorts are within an hours drive of either one or both of these airports.
