Known for its natural wealth, Almería is one of those destinations that you should visit at least once in your life. Located to the southwest of the Iberian Peninsula and on the shores of the Mediterranean, it has more than 100 kilometers of coastline and beaches that reach their maximum splendor in the Cabo de Gata-Níjar Natural Park, a true paradise of virgin beaches and coves. However, Almería also boasts an impressive Mediterranean forest in the Sierra Nevada that combines with the aridity of the Tabernas Desert to form a mixed landscape of incomparable beauty.

An excellent option to discover the great natural treasures of Almeria is to stay in a campsite, a unique opportunity to spend quality time with your family enjoying outdoor activities and in direct contact with nature. Campsites are also a good opportunity for children to develop their senses and unleash their creativity while discovering new destinations. In addition, they are a good option to save a little without giving up comfort, quality services and entertainment.
