Cabo de Gata Almeria Spain

Details

Cabo de Gata, still a small fishing village, is now a popular tourist destination in the summer months.

Historically, there are two buildings of merit in Cabo de Gata: the Torre de San Miguel (Tower of Saint Michael) erected in 1756 during the reign of King Ferdinand VI and the Parish Church de La Virgen del Mar, built in 19th Century.

A stroll along the Maritim Avenue is a lovely way to appreciate the beaches. The volcanic mountain range of Cabo de Gata with it’s sharp peaks and crags provided a dramatic backdrop.

The long, straight beach to the east of Cabo de Gata is a popular hotspot during the summer weekends with the Spanish. Along the coastal road are salt flats. The salt works of Cabo de Gata are still in use. The plant consists of 300 submerged hectares divided by a spit and is the principal wetland of the Almerian coast. It has a significant permanent bird population, including pink flamingos and ornithologists will appreciate the local bird observatory.

A visit to the nearby Cabo de Gata Natural Park is a must. It is Andalucia's largest coastal nature park. The park covers some 38,000 hectares of land and another 12,000 hectares under water. It is an area of unspoilt beauty with unique scenery, volcanic craters, rocky headlands and sandy coves. Apart from walking and enjoying the scenery there is much for the visitor to do including water-sports, cycling and climbing.
