The Costa De Almeria
The small town of Almerimar is situated in the South East corner of Spain, in the province of Almeria, the most easterly province of Andalucia. The Costa de Almeria is amongst the warmest and sunniest in Europe, with over 3000 hours of sun each year. Winter temperatures are mild, (it can reach 20°C even in January), yet it is not too hot even in the middle of summer. The Costa de Almeria is totally different to the over-developed areas further west, and offers unspoilt beaches, National Parks, and mountains. From the beaches in the south, 2 hours drive can take you to the snowy mountains of the Sierra Nevada, or to the only desert in Europe, the Desierto de Tabernas.
Granada, with its famous Alhambra palace, is just over one hour away, in the heart of the Sierra Nevadas. Some of the highest peaks in Europe provide excellent skiing in winter.
Closer to hand, Almeria - 30 minutes away - boasts a fine Moorish castle and fascinating historic centre. The national park of the Cabo de Gata has spectacular scenery, and together with the other national parks in the area offers a wide variety of animal and birdlife.
