Aguadulce is not a tourist resort in September, it might be much busier in July and August. It is easy to get by bus to Almeria which is quite a large city. The attraction for me is that it is a relatively quiet location and does not cater for mass tourism.

Just round the corner from the hotel there is a fabulous restaurant/tapas called Café Concho, family run, very friendly and great value place. They do a fabulous Paella on a Sunday, full plate 5 Euros! No sign of currency exchange places and we had taken enough Euros with us, so not a problem, but bear that in mind if going there.<br /> <br /> Beach is downhill and a bit shingly. Beware the sand gets very hot so footwear a must, so the nearer the waters edge to sit at the better! Hire of a bed is only 4 Euros, fantastic! Lovely to walk along promenade (even into Roquetas Del Mar) either during day or evening, very few touts or touristy type shops.

A quiet town of about 15,000 inhabitants. It has lovely weather and attracts tourists mainly from Spain and other European countries: Germany, France, Scandinavia, Holland as well as a few from UK. Only about 12km from the city of Almeria which is quiet interesting to visit and only 20 minutes on the bus.

The long sand and pebble blue flag beach runs from the Marina for approx 2.5km with beach bars and activities, such as pedalo hire, at regular intervals. The waters are clear and the beach is backed by a pleasant palm-lined pathway. The other side of the road is lined with restaurants, pavement cafes, apartments and hotels.

Things to Do

If you like a long walk, you can walk along the beach path from the Marina to the edge of the resort and continue along the beach all the way into Roquetas de Mar (approx 5km).

At the top end of the resort there is a large marina, giving you access to boat hire, a sailing school and a diving centre offering snorkelling and diving trips, a pool, hookah diving, a dive shop and Padi Courses. For golfers, La Envia Golf Course is approx 5km away.

Out and About

Behind the marina, there is an attractive white collonaded building housing a number of shops, bars and restaurants, offering a lively nightlife in the summer season.

For family fun, waterparks can be found at Vera Playa and Roquetas de Mar and these are open from June to September.

Nearby Attractions
