The pretty resort of Roquetas de Mar is located on the Costa Tropical in Spain. It was originally an old Roman fishing village and still preserves its rich cultural heritage today, as evidenced in the lovely old town with its narrow winding Moorish lanes, the ancient Castilla de Santa Ana tower, and the pretty restored chapel of La Virgen del Rosario. The bustling port and large marina are perfect places to wander of a summers evening, as is the long tiled promenade which stretches along the coastline from one end of the city to the other. Holidaymakers will also be thrilled by the numerous golden sandy beaches which offer excellent water sports facilities for when you have had enough of lounging around in the warm sunshine. Sports enthusiasts have a range of other activities they can try such as horse riding, tennis, and golf. Nature lovers will adore exploring the surrounding countryside of Roquetas de Mar. The salt marsh at Las Marinas is a paradise for flamingos, little egrets, and avocets while the area around Punto Sabinas is a popular spot for avid birdwatchers with crested larks and great grey shrikes. With Almeria Airport only 29 kilometres away by airport shuttle or airport taxi, this is the perfect destination for a short or long break!
