Didn't get to see too much as travelling through mile after mile of polytunnels put us off.
Just got as far as the salt lagoon and lighthouse. It was nice to see an unspoilt view for a change.

Awful area in my opinion. Plastic polytunnels as far as the eye can see and bits of plastic everywhere, totally spoiling the landscape. Not my cup of tea at all. Much more beautiful areas in Spain

Not what I expected and a little disappointed with this area of Almeria. There was no beauty here and I felt it seemed a bit grubby just did not do anything for me.

A big park with two sides (if you are driving). The main park info centre is on the Cabo de Gato side and has a display area that gives you a lot of background with English explanations. Going on from here to the lighthouse passes the lagoon where, if you are lucky, you'll spot some flamingos. They tend to be a bit far off so you'll need binos. If you want a bit of peaceful beach that comes up next, a nice long stretch heading out to the Cape passing fishing villages with cafes. The lighthouse itself is a bit of a letdown. If you picked up a park map in the visitor centre the helpful park assistant will have told you that there is no route further around the coast for cars so to get to the other side of the park you can either walk or bike or back track in the car and drive the inland route to San Jose. Not to far. From San Jose you can follow the signs to Playa de Genovese and Monsul. Be prepared to wash your car after as the road soon turns to an unpaved gravel surface which will cover you in dust. It's not too far to walk but take water as off season there is nothing there. Genovese a nice stretch of sand Monsul some interesting rock formations and a pleasant secluded feel. Both have parking. You can continue on past Monsul but the track gets steeper and rougher. San Jose has plenty of restaurants. Sorry to say we ran out of time to head eastwards so can't help with that. Did go out to Albaricoques for a bit of spaghetti western but could not find it amongst the sea of plastic and some depressing roadside detritus. If you are walking or birdwatching or a fan of arid landscapes than maybe it's for you. Otherwise pack your cool box and head to Monsul or Genovese for a day on the beach.

Great day trip from Almeria. Beautiful coastal drive/views. Bring a camera. It's also very windy so be careful.
