We will introduce you the beaches in Almeria that you cannot miss.Enmedio Cove in Nijar
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
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 JoseMonsul 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 Crusade
, Doctor 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
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 GataLas 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
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.
