Cabo de Gata is a protected area in Almeria, Andalucia. This southern Spanish destination not only boasts some of the wildest beaches you can find in Spain, but is also home to some of the most picturesque villages.
Ideal for lovers of slow life, singular beach destinations and dramatic landscapes, the main attraction of the area is precisely the lack of touristic infrastructure, as the area is now protected and has avoided the brutal touristic development that you find in other areas of Spain.
The beaches are wild, the villages remain as charming and authentic as in the old days, and the castle ruins situated close to the beach will transport you to a past time in which the locals could not take their eyes off the sea to watch out for pirates.
Welcome to Cabo de Gata, the ultimate beach destination in Spain.
