Awful area in my opinion. Plastic polytunnels as far as the eye can see and bits of plastic everywhere, totally spoiling the landscape. Not my cup of tea at all. Much more beautiful areas in Spain

Hire a car and explore. This is a huge natural park, famous for many films over the years. Great for walking holidays or simply exploring by car and finding stunning little fishing villages along the breathtaking coastline.

Worth a half day, but make sure you stop to see wild flamingoes in the salt flats, and the stunning limestone cliffs by the sea. Don't expect any trees, as the flora in this part of Spain is very different to the rest of middle...More
