In the southern part of the peninsula, the Almería Coast extends along the Mediterranean Sea. Its landscape is very unusual: some areas are desert-like while greenhouse crops flourish in others. It is also mountainous, with rocky beaches or dunes, affording a wide range of leisure options to enjoy.
Some of the warmest weather and best beaches in Spain can be found in Almeria, located in the south-eastern corner of the Iberian Peninsula. While the 200 km long stretch of coast has become a popular tourist destination, thankfully it hasn’t been overdeveloped like has happened in so many other parts of Spain. But there is more to do in Almeria than just relax at the beach. The region is still relatively unknown and is great for those looking to get off the beaten path.
