The province of Almería is located in the south east of the Iberian Peninsula on the shores of the Mediterranean sea.
The Mediterranean climate provides a 25º highest temperature in summer and a low of 13º in the winter. A warm and dry environment with low rainfall.
The area is less well known than the other Costas but is one of the most exciting emerging property markets in Europe.
This is a varied and relatively untouched stretch of the Spanish Coast. To the east of Almeria is the rugged coast of the Cabo de Gata - Nijar natural park. This arid region is sparsely populated and features many coves only reached for exploration by foot.
San José is the most popular coastal village in the area. West of Almeria are the more developed tourist resorts of Roquetas de Mar and Aguadulce.
