Information on the towns and villages of Almeria

Roquetas de Mar is just some 20 km west of Almeria and is one of the few resorts in Europe where the rainfall is scarce. The sun shines for more than 320 days a year! Roquetas de Mar and Playa Serena boasts an over 5km long beach promenade along the wide beaches.

ALL FLAT, not hilly!

The area is popular not just in the summer, but also in the winter, with all amenities available all year round. Roquetas de Mar hosts an 18-hole golf course, situated in Playa Serena, designed in 1979 by Angel Gallardo and Peter Alis.

Once a traditional fishing town, Roquetas de Mar is now a popular holiday resort, visited by tourists throughout the year. It was designated a National Tourist Amenity in 1967.

The old coastal town, dating from Roman times, is a maze of narrow, Moorish streets, though now surrounded by hotels and shops. However, signs of its history still exist, for example in the remaining tower of Castilla de Santa Ana and in other 16th to 18th century fortifications along the Roquetas coastline.

The restored church of La Virgen del Rosario, built in 1789, is home to an outstanding altarpiece, painted in 1957 by Jesus Perceval, depicting the life of the Virgin Mary.

Situated on the Costa Tropical, Roquetas de Mar possesses many good beaches with amenities for water sports. Other sports that are catered for include golf, tennis and horse-riding.

In contrast to the holiday beaches, the salt marsh at Las Marinas, 5km. south of Roquetas, attracts flamingos, little egrets and avocets, while at Punto Sabinas, bird watchers may be lucky to sight crested larks or a great grey shrike.

We cover mainly Roquetas de Mar, but if there is any other area in the Almeria region you are interested in, we would be happy to help you find your perfect property.
