Los Genoveses Beach (Cabo de Gata - Almeria)
Almeria is synonymous with beautiful beaches; more than 200 kilometres adorned with white sand and crystal clear water. In Almeria you will find the ideal beach for you and your family. You can enjoy the best of the Mediterranean Sea on beaches where even movies have been filmed for their enormous beauty and majesty.

If you are planning a weekend getaway to Almeria, a holiday in this beautiful province or simply want to look for the best beach to enjoy, you should read on.

We will introduce you the beaches in Almeria that you cannot miss.

Enmedio Cove in Nijar

En medio Cove (Cabo de Gata - Almeria)

The Enmedio Cove is a beach of 150 metres long with very fine sand of golden colour, and where you will not find a single stone. It has fantastic views to the town of Agua Amarga and to the hill of Mesa Roldan, where you will be able to observe its lighthouse and tower.

The beach is difficult to access and is isolated, making it an ideal beach for lovers of tranquility. In addition, it has been chosen by the New York Times as one of the best beaches in Europe.

Monsul Cove in San Jose

Monsul Cove (Cabo de Gata - Almeria)

Monsul Cove is an isolated beach set in the Natural Park of Cabo de Gata. Natural lava formations give beach goers somewhere to shelter during the hot summer days. Pretty cool, hey?

Volcanic rock and huge sand dunes really make this beach stand out from the rest. Monsul Cove is ideal for snorkelling, and fish of all varieties can be seen here.

The terrain on beyond the beach could be seen in Texas, with prickly pear cactuses and few farm houses in sight. Fans of the big and small screen may recognise Monsul Cove from Indiana Jones and the Last CrusadeDoctor Who or The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. Despite the popularity of Monsul Cove, car parking is limited so it’s best to jump on a bus for this one.

Las Negras Beach in Nijar

Las Negras Beach (Cabo de Gata - Almeria)

A highly popular beach, this one is made up rocks, gravel and dark sand. The water is calm, very clear and perfect for bathing. Life guards are on duty and the beach area has facilities, showers and even a ferry to take sightseers to San pedro, a small and isolated bay close by.

Las Negras Beach is located in the centre of Nijar, with a promenade that leads beach goers to the sea and back into town again. The beach is shaded by high cliffs which shelter swimmers during the day.

Las Salinas Beach in Cabo de Gata

Las Salinas Beach (Cabo de Gata - Almeria)

Las Salinas Beach is a beautiful, long stretch of coastline, perfect for a full day out with the family. The beach itself is half coarse sand. This beach is almost always occupied due to its popularity, length and location.

The beach is easily accessed by wooden roadways leading from the road. You won’t be able to access any eateries, so it is best to pack your own lunch. Wetlands are next to the beach, which is where it takes its name from.

Los Genoveses Beach in San Jose

Los Genoveses Beach (Cabo de Gata - Almeria)

Full of fine gold sand, this little beach is 1.2 kilometres long. The catch is that you’ll have to walk there as Los Genoveses Beach is inaccessible by car, and by civilisation itself. You won’t see any buildings or electricity lines here.

The good news is that the walk features stunning views while walking alongside lavender plants – sounds like an ideal setting for a movie, if you ask me. You will need to choose your days carefully though – a windy day can mean big waves and sandy winds.
