Beaches

The waterfront in the old quarter of the city is dominated by the commercial port and ferry terminal. From the marina, heading east around the bay there is a string of beaches, all backed by a pedestrianised promenade, which runs for approx 2km.

Things to Do

Take a guided tour of the desert, its ravines and film locations - options include travelling by foot, bike, horse or 4x4.

Enjoy free entry (EU Nationals) to the Alcazabar, which you can see on the hill looking out over the city and the Mediterranean. This huge Moorish fort dates back to the 10th century and you can stroll through the impressive gardens, admire panoramic views from the watchtowers, explore the battlements of the castle and see the ruins of the palace.

Oasys Theme Park and Fort Bravo Theme Park both have a Wild West town with a variety of shows between them including CanCan dancing and cowboy gun fights. The shows are on daily throughout the summer and at weekends in the winter. Oasys is great for children and also has a mini train, safari zoo, a swimming pool and eatieries; Fort Bravo has been a movie set for hundreds of films.

Out and About

Behind the marina and the port there are beach gardens and a children's playground. Here you will see the huge historic iron railway bridge, the Cables Ingles. Heading inland, the tree-lined Avenida Frederico Garcia has a central garden with benches and children's play areas, shops, restaurants and pavement cafes. The city has a weekly market and for modern indoor shopping there is the Mediterraneo Centre which also has a supermarket and restaurants.

Almeria Cathedral dates back to the 16th century and is surrounded by green and palm-studded plazas and the winding streets of the old quarter.

Nearby Attractions

Approx 25km west around the bay, the Cabo de Gata offers a wealth of activities from simple sight-seeing throughout the reserve to, discovering the wealth of fauna and bird life, hiking through the volcanic landscape or relaxing in the secluded coves and snorkelling in their clear waters.

Heading inland, into the Tabernas Desert you will find the Almeria racing track and the welcoming Spanish village of Tabernas, with its 11th century castle. A little further on, towards Sorbas, you can take a guided tour of Castillo de Tabernas olive farm and mill. If you are feeling agile, you can also take a guided tour through the tunnels and cave galleries of the Sorba Caves to see the gypsum crystals and rock formations that lie within.
