Cabo de Gata Natural Park

The Natural Park of Cabo de Gata is a place of pure natural beauty. Wonderful landscapes, beaches with hidden caves, fantastic viewpoints – what else do we want?!

The end of May and the beginning of June is the perfect time to visit. We can enjoy the beautiful beaches like Playa de los Muertos, Playa de los Genoveses or the cove of San Pedro and have the chance to go on a kayak tour at La Fabriquilla or Agua Amarga. 

Kayaking Cabo de Gata:

Discover the beaches and coves in a kayak! This unique experience takes about 3 hours and offers you the best panoramic views. Plus, you can access many places and corners only by boat, so this is something you should not miss!
Important: This is an optional activity, which is not included in the price. The additional cost is 30€. The starting point will either be in La Fabriquilla, Cala del Cuervo, Las Negras or Agua Amarga depending on the wind. 

Pueblo San José & Las Negras

Los Genoveses, Mónsul and San José are a must-see and known for their wonderful beaches with crystal clear water and fine golden dunes!

Las Negras: It is one of the most touristic towns in the Natural Park of Cabo de Gata – Nijar named after the volcanic black mountain El Cerro Negro. The beach made of black pebbles is perfect for snorkelling. 

Desert of Tabernas

This area is considered Europe’s only proper desert area – and it’s a famous western movie location! Indiana Jones, Once Upon A Time In the West, Exodus and Lawrence of Arabia are just some examples!

Visiting this place will feel like being part of a real old western movie when you see cowboys, saloons, a sheriff’s station and typical dance halls.


Almería offers not only beautiful beaches but also historical heritage with monuments like the Alcazaba of Almería, La Rambla de Almería, the archaeological museum, the Cathedral of the Incarnation of Almería or the Plaza de la Constitucion. Besides, the festival of San Juan is celebrated on the 23rd of June in Almería, turning the city into beautiful colours. 

Hiking Trip

We will choose the route depending on the wind on the 2nd day (because we will have visited one of the places already by kayak).
