Roquetas de Mar is a modern coastal town in the southeastern corner of Almeria Province in Andalucia, a 30-minute drive from Almeria Airport. Set at the foot of the Sierra de Gadór mountains, Roquetas de Mar stretches from Aguadulce in the east to Punta Entinas-Sabinar Natural Park in the west. This once sleepy, whitewashed fishing village has grown into a vibrant holiday resort attracting visitors year-round who are drawn to its Blue Flag beaches, first class golf courses, friendly locals and relaxed Mediterranean way of life away from the main tourist crowds.
Our beachfront holiday apartments and villas put you in the heart of it all; historical gems, a glorious coastline, activities for outdoor lovers and an abundance of traditional tapas bars and restaurants offering delicious Spanish seafood. Kids will love the mini-train tour taking you around the resort's hotspots and old town with its authentic Andalucian charm. Discover ancient Roman remains in Aguadulce, the 18th century Our Lady of the Rosary Church in the town’s centre and the crown jewel of Roquestas de Mar – the 16th century Santa Ana Castle, where a trip to the top provides sweeping views of the Mediterranean and surrounding region, while inside holds local art exhibitions.
Sunbathe, swim and people watch on the golden sand, Blue Flag beaches of the Costa de Almería. Ideal for families, there are plenty of facilities, seafront restaurants and opportunities for water sports, from windsurfing to paragliding, water skiing, yachting, pedal boating and scuba diving. The wide palm-fringed promenade is dotted with atmospheric chiringuitos, cafes and souvenir shops overlooking the impressive marina that comes to life after sundown.
For a break from the beach, practice your swing at Playa Serena Golf Club, 10 minutes from the town’s centre, or shop until you drop at Gran Plaza Mall. For a fun day out with family, make a splash at nearby Mario Park, just a 10-minute drive away, or discover the exotic underwater world of Roquetas Aquarium with its glass tunnel displays of marine life. Explore the stunning natural landscape at Punta Entinas-Sabinar Natural Park, where you can enjoy bird watching, horse riding, or a scenic evening stroll along the coast, 15 minutes southeast of Roquetas de Mar.
