Natural Park of Cabo de Gata-Níjar

The Natural Park of Cabo de Gata-Nijar, in the province of Almeria in Andalusia, is one of the few places in southern Europe that remains in a natural state.

Pristine beaches (Mónsul, Genoveses, El Playazo, Cala de Enmedio, etc ...), hidden coves, cliffs, ravines, volcanic mountains contrast with the remains of a vernacular architecture of farmhouses, windmills and wells scattered throughout the landscape. Along the Natural Park in villages like San José, La Isleta, Rodalquilar, Las Negras, Aguamarga you will find restaurants, bars and shops to enjoy your stay.

Over a thousand species of plants and animals complete a volcanic and semi-desert territory, where throughout the diferents seasons of the  year the lights become a true visual spectacle.
