The province of Almería is located in the south-east of the Iberian Peninsula on the shores of the Mediterranean sea. Its whole extension, which covers 8,774 square kilometres, has a great geographic diversity. The passing of time has also caused disparities in the landscape. As a result, in Almería, you can enjoy popular, modern tourist resorts and natural areas where mankind has barely left its mark.
The climate is Mediterranean, warm and dry, with low rainfall. The number of hours of sun is very high with over 3,000 hours per year. The temperature remains mild throughout the year. It does not fall below an average of 13ºC in winter, nor does it rise above an average 25º C in summer. Thanks to this mild climate, visitors can enjoy all the possibilities offered by the province at any time of year. Almería has been visited by many people throughout its history, perhaps because of its beautiful landscape or perhaps because of its geographical location. The important archaeological remains found in the province have helped researchers discover and analyse the existence of old cultures.
On the coast of Almería, you can enjoy varied folklore and plenty of fiestas, inherited from ancestors, as well as popular handicrafts designed with painstaking care (pottery, ceramics, esparto, rugs and marble). Gastronomic specialities such as paprika, gurullos (stews), porridge and seafood soup are also a legacy from the region's rich past.
Almerimar is located in a privileged setting on the south west of Almeria. This is the sunniest area in Europe, with over 3,000 hours of sun a year, and average annual temperature of no less than 20º C. On top of that, everything is only a short distance away.
It is located on the beachfront of the exclusive Almerimar residential area, 200 m from one of the best Mediterranean marina and next to a renovated golf course. The Almerimar golf course has 27 holes embedded into a beautiful landscape of palm trees and lakes. Lovers of this sport will surely enjoy this flat golf course with wide pathways and well-kept green spaces.
Punta Entinas-Sabinar Natural Park
It is located on the southeast coast of the Iberian Peninsula, in the space between El Ejido and Roquetas de Mar (Almería). A Mediterranean subarid ecosystem in which the combination of four main biotopes stands out: sandy beaches, dune systems fixed by Mediterranean scrub, endorheic zone of salt pans and ponds, which serve as a stopover for numerous species of waterfowl on their migratory journeys.
Cabo de Gata
Cabo de Gata-Níjar Nature Park was Andalusia's first marine-terrestrial protected area. This area is also internationally recognised as a biosphere reserve on account of the contrasts that it has between marine, coastal and terrestrial environments, the numerous exclusive species to be found here and the unique characteristics of one of Europe's most arid ecosystems. It was also designated by UNESCO as Global Geopark.
To the south of the Peninsula, the Costa de Almería opens to the Mediterranean Sea. Its landscape is very peculiar, deserted in some areas, full of greenhouse crops in others, mountainous and with rocky beaches or dunes, it offers a wide range of possibilities for enjoyment and leisure. In its towns and municipalities we find traces of ancient civilizations such as El Argar or Los Millares and a rich monumental heritage such as the Alcazaba in Almería capital or the watchtowers and castles that are located along the coast, a sign of the historical importance of this zone.
At the end are the most modern cities oriented towards the enjoyment of its climate, sea and beaches, with tourist resorts that make the Costa de Almeria the ideal place to spend the holidays. To the west, before Aguadulce, the coast becomes rugged with strong cliffs. From this point, a flat area begins where many touristic nuclei follow one another in full expansion. Roquetas de mar, wide beaches and magnificent hotel facilities. Throughout the coast, tourist continue to practice numerous sports, such as golf, tennis, sailing, windsurfing, etc. Almerimar is a beautiful example. Beautiful beaches such as Guardias Viejas, Balerma and Balanegra follow one another until reaching Adra, a town of Phoenician origin, which reached great splendor in Roman times.
