Almeria province is the hottest area in Spain and with it's almost lunar inland landscape, you'll certainly believe it. Deserts and rock formations give Almeria an almost Wild West or Arabian feel – no wonder Lawrence of Arabia and numerous Westerns have been filmed here.
The coast of Almeria is practically deserted compared to elsewhere in Spain. With mile upon mile of beautiful tranquil beaches, you certainly won't have to hunt for a nice spot for your towel.
Inland of course there is the amazing desert landscape, pretty towns and villages litter the area, all brimming with history, not to mention fabulous authentic tapas bars. You'll also find a stunning area of natural beauty in the Cabo de Gata Natural Park, with its beautiful beaches and volcanic landforms, as well as an abundance of wildlife. And if you want to visit a really authentic Andalucian city, you simply can't miss Almeria itself.
A wonderful area of Spain that's just waiting to be uncovered.
