Cabo de Gata, situated on the Gulf of Almería, is a pleasant, all-year campsite offering facilities to a good standard. Popular with British visitors through the winter, and within the Cabo de Gata-Nijar Nature Park, set amongst fruit farms, it is only a 1 km. walk to a fine sandy beach. The 250 gravel pitches are level and of a reasonable size, with 6/16A electricity and limited shade from maturing trees or canopies. There are specific areas for very large units with very high canopies for shade and seven chalets for rent.
The modern, airy reception is near a pleasant, irregular-shaped swimming pool and the bar/restaurant, which has a very Spanish feel. To the west, Salinas de Acosta and the lighthouse at Faro de Gata (fine views). The salinas are renowned for their bird life and from the hides you will see large flocks of pink flamingo and many other species. Almería has many quality shops and the Alcazaba (955 A.D.), whilst a short drive inland near Tabernas, Mini Hollywood (Clint Eastwood spaghetti western fame) and the white washed village of Nijar noted for its basketry and rugs.
