Beaches

The blue flag beaches of Roquetas de Mar run the entire length of the resort and beyond, some are sand, some have shingle but none are ever too crowded. In fact you can walk along the beach all the way to the neighbouring resort of Aguadulce (5km) to the east of the harbour and to Puntas Entinas Sabinar natural park (4km) to the west of the harbour. There are good facilities for water sports including jet skiing and water skiing as well as sailing and fishing.

Things to Do

Golfers will be pleased to find a golf course at the western end of the resort, Playa Serena Golf Club. A further golf course, La Envia Golf Course, is approx 15 minutes drive away. Walkers and birdwatchers will appreciate the natural environment of the salt flats and marshlands that lay behind the beach at the Puntas Entinas Sabinar.

Next to the marina you will find the Castillo de Santa Ana housing a museum and, next to that, the Roquetas de Mar lighthouse. Other historic and cultural attractions including the crumbling Arabian watchtower of Torre de Cerrillos and the bull ring which is located at the northern edge of the town, next to the municipal football stadium.

For family fun there is a small sea life centre, a karting track and an aqua park. Especially for the kids there is a great little amusement park with bumper cars, trampolines, mini golf and bouncy castles.

December 29th is a busy day in Roquetas, when locals flock to the beach for the fish barbecues, music and fun that define the Moragas festival.

Out and About

There are many bars and restaurants in the resort offering a wide variety of international menus but there is still a strong Spanish influence and you will be easily be able to dine on traditional Spanish fare, including tapas, cakes and pastries. The marina is another good spot for tapas bars and restaurants.

Just a little further out from the bull ring, which also houses bars and restaurants, you will find the Parque Commercial Gran Plaza, packed with international stores, designer brands, cafes and fast food outlets. The local street market is held on Thursday mornings and has over 250 stalls.

Nearby Attractions

The sports and leisure resort of Almerimar is approx 25km drive along the coast to the east and the resort of Aguadulce with its sandy beach and marina is approx 9km drive to the west.
