This efficient, well maintained medium-sized site has 185 pitches (60-80 sq.m). They are divided by hedges and trees, 100 have 10A electricity and some have artificial shading. Specific taps about the grounds provide drinking water. The pool has an overlooking bar and restaurant which is kept busy serving excellent typical Spanish ‘menu del dia’ food at reasonable prices. It is a popular site with British tourists seeking the sun. The salinas on the approach to Cabo de Gata are famous for birdlife (including flocks of pink flamingo).
Inland, the whitewashed village of Nijar is renowned for rugs and basket weave products. Crossing the Sierra Albamilla mountain range, are Tabernas with its castle, and nearby Mini Hollywood (plus zoo), location of Clint Eastwood’s spaghetti westerns. The drive along and towards the coast here is unattractive due to the vast number of huge plastic greenhouses used by the agricultural community. Nearing the coast and as you enter the Natural Park of Cabo de Gata, the scenery changes dramatically with some areas unspoilt.
