We have driven to and in the park and it was wonderful - in November almost nobody was there - so mother nature was just wonderful to immerse in. The small white villages were pretty empty and closed down; including many restaurants

There is quite a drive from the motorway to get to this place. We did it just to say that we had been because though it is pleasant enough, it isn't really that spectacular. There were coachloads of folk there and the place wasn't that well maintained. Unless you have plenty of time to spare, I'm not sure you should... More

I understand this area is a designated Unesco Biosphere Reserve. I visited the area with a bird guide and had a lovely day visiting the Salinas, the wetland area of the Ramblas de Morales and the beach area. I saw three Stone Curlew in this rare steppe habitat - what a thrill. We were also looking for Dotterel but on... More

The park is a great place for hikes along the cost providing amazing views and great variety in the landscape. Besides that there are many beautiful beaches where you can swim. I recommend this place!

One of our favourite beaches to visit when we're in the area is playa de los muertos. Absolutely fab for snorkelling. Not easy to get to or get back from as very steep descent but well worth the effort as crystal clear water and thousands of fish.

We spent the better part of a day seeing the area by car. Much of the park is barren which really highlights the beauty of the coastal villages such as Agua Amarga. For an alternative to the coast we enjoyed seeing Rodalquilar and the impressive abandoned old mine.

Europe's driest area has mountains , seaviews , pretty villages and a sense of space . Rodilquilar , my favourite Agua Amarga , and Isla del Moro are all special - almost North African in architecture. Unfortunately there are large areas despoiled by plastic greenhouses and shanty towns to house the immigrant workers toiling there . Such a shame .

the park offers everything that you could ask for from nature. Beautiful white beach, dark pebbly beach, towering hill and mountain. Best area for hiking.
