“For the the rare if shy birds”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

Saw a probable Rufous Bush Chat, nice.Hope the area remains protected and free from encroachment from development as there are very localised specialist wildlife living here.

“The Cabo de Gata - try a fistful of dollars!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

We camped with our Romahome van on the Cabo de Gata. At first sight this is a somewhat unnerving spot. Uninviting, cactus, dry,volcanic; think again - buy provisions first this is an area seriously short of 20th century supermarkets! The pluses are enormous. Glorious blue seas, beaches to die for, use your imagination - where are you, where would you like to be. This place is not to be missed, I really should not be sharing this with you, but maybe you too have the spirit of adventure (I stress stock up on provisions)!

“paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

We spent 2 days here and tried to check as many places as possible,but there are so many things to do that a week wouldnt be enough.You can do trekking between the beaches or in the natural reserve,visit the little villages on the coast,go on a kayak tour..The area has some of the nicest beaches in spain and some of them are almost empty even in summertime! Food and service in general was excellent as well-i will defenately be back soon!

“A well kept secret”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

Near Almeria, Cabo de Gata's Genovese beach is unspoilt, a glittering bay surrounded by desert and huge cacti. In summer you park in San Jose Cabo de Gata and the bus takes you in. In off season you can drive into the National Park, park and then hike to the beach. There are two beaches, Genovese and Monsoor, both wonderful and unspoilt. We spent an afternoon at Genovese beach playing in the sea, and walking the bay, so relaxed and content just to be there.

“Cabo de Gata Majestic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

A truly majestic part of the Almeria coast, if you get the opportunity get into the sea with a snorkle and goggles.
