A landscape on which you can admire the imprint of ancient peoples and civilizations, which next to the Alcazaba or the monumental Torres Vigías and castles, give a great spectacle to the Costa de Almería. And for those who want to explore natural areas, they can play sports in natural surroundings. Furthermore, in Almeria you can find the Tabernas Desert, which is considered the only one in Europe, protected as a Natural Park and natural set of movies, music videos and advertisements worldwide.

The Almeria Coast, “Costa del Sol”, covers 13 municipalities: from Pulpí, on the border of the Murcia province, to Adra, which borders the province of Granada. Inside the Almería Coast visitors can find tourist destinations like Vera, Mojacar, Roquetas de Mar and Almerimar, and natural areas such as the Natural Park of Cabo de Gata-Nijar, the Natural Park of Punta Entinas-Sabine, or the Island of San Andrés, among others.

Pulpí

The coast of Almeria is characterized by its irregular line. That provides it an identity, giving it an attraction for visitors which makes it one of the preferred destinations for tourism. This coastal strip extends to Murcia via the territory of the Cabo de Gata Nijar Natural Park. It is distinguished on many occasions by the presence of virgin beaches and coves, where the vegetation is rich and lush and gives the area a “wild” appearance that draws much attention. It is also one of the favourite sites of nudists, with more specific places for it.

On the coast of Almeria, east of the province is the town of Pulpí, a coastal town which is just 100 kilometers from the provincial capital, Almería. Pulpí has a semi-arid Mediterranean climate, with low rainfall, less than 300mm. each year, concentrated in autumn and spring. Summers are long and hot and winters short and with few frosts.

One of the amazing things to see in this town is Geoda de Pulpí. A geode is a normally closed cavity in the rock that have crystallized minerals that have been conducted to the cave, dissolved in groundwater. Crystallization is a slow process that can last for thousands of years and has a spectacular aesthetic result. Geoda de Pulpí, placed on the Pillar of Jaravía is a unique phenomenon given the dimension, perfection, size and transparency of glass.

In Pulpí highlights the town of San Juan de los Terreros, being an eminently tourist population center. And a little further inland, following the road to Pulpí, we find the village of Pilar de Jaravía, a beauty emplacement due to its palm trees around.
