Beautiful scenery and coast line

Here in beautiful weather in March 2017. Brilliant curvey roads and views across the area. Disappointed by walking paths but cyclists love the area

Kindly ignore the ignorant and foolish comments about the greenhouses, from which vegetables are grown which feed people all over Europe and as far away as Russia. Mike B is a fool, pardon my, he might do some local research as well as eat the local lovely vegetables grown in a rain hungry area. It's a miracle it's all grown... More

We bicycled from Almería to San Jose through the park. The first part is paved, the send part is on a good quality gravel track. The hills were steep, the views incredible, and the wildflowers plentiful. Our children loved the sand dunes and beaches.

After driving past miles and miles of disgusting plastic greenhouses.. i can only imagine the chemical broth out fruit is grown in... we found the cabo de Gata.. beautiful beaches, peaceful (in March) towns and villages, empty restaurants and views to die for.. its amazing and well worth the trip.

The town of Nijar is situated to the north west of the Cabo de Gata Nijar Natural Park, and to the east of Almeria, and is easy to find. We had read that this is the area to buy artisan pottery and also locally woven rugs, so we took the 30 minute drive from San Jose. As this is winter,... More

This is a special and precious area of Spain that is a real demand. From the gold mines at Rodaquilar to hunting for garnets near Nicaragua, there is plenty to do and see. The savings are a superb site for flamingoes and the rare Trumpeter Finch can be seen by the lighthouse at the Cabo. A great place for washing... More

This Park is so beautiful! Great for a hike, although it was rather difficult to find out where the hike started.

I visited the unique open air art village of Rodalquilar out of season. Nothing to do but stroll and admire the art work on the walls of the buildings and homes. This is an abandoned gold mining village. They have adorned the abandoned workers' houses with murals.

We cycled into the park and toured around as best we could. Varied roads used by walkers, cyclists and cars. Lots of wild flowers, birds, and super deserted (at the time) beaches
