What To See and Do in Almerimar
This is very much a small resort – the population is only just over 6,000 so it is not a large place. You would come here to relax on the beaches and perhaps play some golf.
You are close to the mountains of Sierra de Gádor. You could easily ski or snowboard at Sierra Nevada in the morning and be on the beach for the afternoon – not many places can offer that variety!
The marina has 1,100 berths. You can take boat trips and also go diving, sailing, windsurf and fishing.
With over 13km of wide sandy beaches you can truly have a relaxing beach holiday with everything you need within walking distance.
This is a great area if you like nature and walking and hiking. There are also stables nearby so you can go horse-riding.
Head west to see the Castillo (castle) Guardias Viejas.
Just an hour’s drive away you can visit the famous “Cabo de Gata” reserve with some amazing remote beaches, perfect some nude sunbathing.
Just 30 minutes drive gets you to Almeria city with it’s historic castle, cathedral and shops.
The magnificent city of Granada with its historic district and Alhambra Palace is 90 minutes drive away.
The situation near the very south of Spain ensures a warm dry climate virtually the whole year round, although note that you are not far from the mountains so expect more rain here than you would further south on the Costa del Sol.
Nevertheless, just 45 minutes drive away is the only desert in Europe – Tabernas, where the “Mini-Hollywood Theme Park” is situated, the setting for many famous Clint Eastwood movies!
We have a dedicated Costa Almeria weather page here.

Temperatures only start to really drop near the end of September when it is certainly possible to be still swimming in pools and the Mediterranean Sea.
