Beautiful Natural Park in the heart of Almeria. Wonderful drive through (yes sorry you need a car) with the road hugging the side of the cliff and taking you to beautiful beaches.

A really interesting area, amazing rock formations, small characterfull villages, both sea side and inland, great beaches although some require quite a walk or careful driving (4x4 would be best ) over dirt roads. Definitely worth a trip, the o ly downside is travelling through acres of plastic greenhouses to reach it

We have been walking in the national park for the past few days. The scenery is breathtaking be it the rugged mountains or the spectacular sea views. The tracks can be a bit rough but the views are worth it. Have done walks around Rodalquila and San Jose, including the spectacular sea cliff walk between the two villages. It is... More

Kindly ignore the ignorant and foolish comments about the greenhouses, from which vegetables are grown which feed people all over Europe and as far away as Russia. Mike B is a fool, pardon my, he might do some local research as well as eat the local lovely vegetables grown in a rain hungry area. It's a miracle it's all grown... More

We bicycled from Almería to San Jose through the park. The first part is paved, the send part is on a good quality gravel track. The hills were steep, the views incredible, and the wildflowers plentiful. Our children loved the sand dunes and beaches.

After driving past miles and miles of disgusting plastic greenhouses.. i can only imagine the chemical broth out fruit is grown in... we found the cabo de Gata.. beautiful beaches, peaceful (in March) towns and villages, empty restaurants and views to die for.. its amazing and well worth the trip.
