The Costa Almería until recently remained one of the more isolated
costas. You can see this today in the vast areas of uncultivated land,
and unspoilt coastal fishing villages that in many other costas have
turned into large tourist towns.
However with improved road links and
a well supported airport, the Costa Almería now offers some of
the most beautiful and unspoilt areas of southern Spain whilst having
good infrastructure and facilities for those looking to live, work, holiday
or just relax.
Property prices have risen steadily over the last few years,
and with increased local investment in facilities and local planning
regulations restricting growth, investors and holiday home seekers
alike are seeing the value of their property continue to rise.
Costa Almería enjoys a microclimate, making it the
garden of Spain. Many of the fruit and vegetables you buy in your
local supermarket are grown on the Costa Almería.
320 days of sunshine a year and an average year-round temperature
of 19°C, it really does offer an ideal escape from the winter
North of Almería you will find the skiing resorts of the
Sierra Nevada, offering great snow from around November to March.
You could even find yourself skiing in the morning and relaxing
on the beach in the afternoon. For those who prefer their sporting
activities a little warmer, the Costa Almería offers many
good golf courses, as well as marinas providing for every kind
of water sport.
Cabo de Gato is the national park of Almería, and offers
a myriad of unspoilt beaches and small white villages, the perfect
place to escape and really slow the pace down.
