Coast of Almería Walk

Coast of Almería Walk Overview

Discover landscapes reminiscent of North Africa as you traverse cliff tops, sandy coves and red hills, with time to relax by the sea.

  • self-guided hotel-to-hotel walking, luggage transported
  • driest, sunniest corner of Europe
  • year-round bathing in the sea on deserted beaches
  • leisurely but varied walking

One of the Mediterranean's final unspoiled regions, the Cabo de Gata Natural Park in the Andalucian province of Almería basks in the hot sun, its landscapes reminiscent more of North Africa than of Europe. Here, bare, reddish hills descend to a spectacular coastline of cliffs, sand dunes, salt flats, wild bays, virgin beaches and white fishing villages that sparkle in the sunlight.


This is the driest place in Europe, with 3,000 hours of sunshine each year, and is a region that is best ‘out of season’, when a wonderfully clear light bathes the deserted beaches, flamingos fly overhead, and cacti flower in the plentiful warm sunshine. Our leisurely walks ascend and descend over cliffs, sandy coves and bare hills, introducing you to some of Spain's most striking landscapes. But this holiday is just as much about exploring the authentic fishing villages and making the most of the empty beaches and clear blue waters, the warmest of mainland Spain.
