Roquetas de Mar - The Place

Roquetas de Mar, on the Costa Almeria in Andalusia, is well placed for enjoying hot dry days with a welcome on-shore breeze. With a small fishing harbour and a labyrinth of narrow streets, Roquetas de Mar has retained its traditional Spanish atmosphere. The tower of Santa Ana and the village walls are all that remains of the 16th century fortifications. The eighteenth century church of the Virgin of the Rosary has been restored and is well worth a visit.

The beach, two miles long, is of sand and shingle and is not over crowded. The promenade bordering the beach has many shady palm trees as well as a large number of bars and restaurants. There are good facilities for water sports including wind surfing and sailing. Land sports include golf, tennis and horse riding.

A mini road train runs around the resort. Entertainment for children includes a park with inflatables, crazy golf and a water park.

Four kilometres south of Roquetas de Mar is the salt lagoon of Las Marinas where there is a huge bird population including colourful flamingos. It is an excellent area for water sports.
