Cabo de Gata-Nijar Natural Park

Cabo de Gata-Nijar Natural Park covers one of the most pristine coastlines around the Mediterranean and some of its beaches are on the list of the best beaches in Spain.

This is a great place of 50km of rugged coast with breathtaking landscapes of dark, ocher, red and black colors, including wonderful beaches like Playa de Mosul, Playa de losGenovesesor Playa de losMuertos, as well as spectacular cliffs and coves that hide unspoiled coves such as Cala de Carnaje and Cala de Enmedio.

It is one of the most arid ecosystems of Europe for its climate, we could say that virtually there are no winters, but it has a great diversity of flora adapted to this environment, about 1,000 species cataloged. In its seabed we find reefs and lush meadows of Posidonia, which make the water incredibly transparent and clear, with lots of fish. The park also has a saline area with great importance for the number of birds that concentrates about 80 species throughout the year. Therefore, this place has been internationally recognized as a Biosphere Reserve and Geopark.

Throughout the entire park there areremains of human settlements as old as the Phoenicians and Romans, whoall lived on the use of resources of these lands, especially fishing and salt. We also find watchtowers of Arab origin along the coast.

The park is an ideal place to practice sports, diving, cycling-tourism, sea excursions or equestrian trails as well as hiking if what you like is to walk and enjoy nature, as the park offers 15 routes of different duration and levelsto travel throughout its territory.

The ideal thing is to get here by car as the park is very large and the visit is easier, but if you do not have one, there are bus services that lead to the park.
