After a fab day in Almeria City last August 2017 with Jackie and Charlie, we decided to visit the Cabo de Gata National Park with them this year. They run bespoke tours and will tailor your trip to suit your particular needs wherever possible.Transport is usually from your accommodation and all snacks, drinks and meals are included in this trip. There are usually a few people on each trip, but we were the only couple on this one, so we had Jackie and Charlie to ourselves for the day, great company and they have become true friends. We have visited this National Park before on our own and we would never have found all of the interesting places that Jackie and Charlie showed us on this trip. We stood on magnificent cliff tops overlooking the sea, visited a working fishing community on the beach and saw flamingoes grazing on the salt flats. We'll never forget the superb location we had lunch at, quite magical, right on the waters edge in a picture perfect fishing village. We took in a deserted gold processing plant on the way back, fascinating, thanks guys!!

Great national park reachable from Almeria.in 30 min drive. There are more sandy beaches, but we opted for the well-known Playa de Monsul- where Indiana Jones was filmed. Be aware that it can be very windy and hot in August. But the shallow , crystal clear water is worth visiting. Do not bring too much stuff as everything will be filled by sand. But be protected from the sun an heat, bring your own water/ food, as it is a natural park, no bars around.

We only went along the coast road to the Cabo de Gata itself. Lovely views from there and I always find lighthouses interesting. On the coast road you can see salt being harvested at Las Salinas and there is an interesting church (built 1907) that has mass on Sundayand an earlier fort, last used by the Guarda Civil.

It is well worth visiting this remote desert like region. It is stark but desert succulents add to the ambiance of the region. San José is very crowded and a surprise so we walked over to Playa de Genoveses where the Genoans landed in 1147. It has no facilities but the beach is sandy and long. There is shade by the trees but take water and hat! The walk there is straightforward and no risk of lack of parking. There is free municipal parking in SAn Jose.

People complain about the polytunnels [there are none in the National Park], the flies and the rubbish. But look beyond that - this is UNESCO Global Park and for good reason. The volcanic geology is unique [we collected a bag full of garnets lying on the surface], the desert flora is fascinating and the birdlife re and diverse - flamingoes, stilt, godwit, avocet, Black-eared wheatear, Black wheatear, calandra lark, rare warblers, and much else. The small fishing villages are picturesque, Granada is within striking distance and the Sierra Nevada is spectacular. We were in the area for three weeks, much longer than the average overnighted, and were never bored. It is worth a visit, if you look beneath the surface!
