Activities and shopping

As well as the choice of water sports, there's plenty of activities and entertainment on dry land to keep you busy. Golf lovers will appreciate the choice of golf courses, and there's abundance of shops, bars and restaurants in each resort. The village market in Vicar is a great day out, with a real traditional atmosphere selling all kinds of local produce, and then street stalls in Almeria are great for souvenirs.

Sightseeing in Almeria

The 16th century cathedral and the Alcazaba castle in the city of Almeria are a must see with their original structures still in existence and use to this day. The Natural Parks around the Costa de Almeria are also a refreshing change from the buzz of the resorts, as are the beautiful villages in the hills surrounding the coastline.

Nightlife in Almeria

If you're after late night bars and clubs then you've come to the wrong place. The Costa de Almeria has fairly low key nightlife, mainly centered on the tapas bars and numerous s restaurants in the resort centres. Ideal for families and couples who don't want the crowds and bright lights of the other Costa's, this area still offers some late nights if you wish to stay out just a little longer. Dine in a traditional restaurant with a glass of wine or two as you watch the world go by...that's the Costa de Almeria way.

Climate in Almeria

The Costa de Almeria has the most sunniest and dry climate in Spain, with long hot summers and warm winters, and very little rainfall. The peak summer months of July and August tend to reach 30 degrees plus, while the quieter summer months' temperatures hit the late 20's. Evenings are also fine in the peak months and during the off-peak summer months, a light jacket is recommended for those sea breezes, but can still expect great sunbathing in the hot daytime sunshine. Whether you visit in the winter or summer months, you're guaranteed pleasant weather in the Costa de Almeria.
