Campsites Around Cabo de Gata - Almeria

This summer has seen us driving all around the coast of Andalucia from Huelva on the Portuguese border to Almeria on the Mediterranean Sea next to the region of Murcia.

The spot we'd never actually got to before is the Natural Park of Cabo de Gata - Nijar the largest protected area of coast in Andalucia with wild, isolated desert-scrub landscape and volcanic cliffs creating small, protected sandy coves. It also has its own micro-climate making it an ideal area for winter camping.

The campsites we visited in Almeria were:

Camping Cabo de Gata - Largish very flat site
Camping Cuevas Mar - Flat and uninspiring with nice grassy pool area
Camping Cueva Negra - Very well-kept with an unusual covered pool and coin-operated Jacuzzi
Camping Los Escullos - Largish, nicely laid out welcoming
Camping Sopalmo - Small, family run site
Camping Tau de San Jose - Small, rustic and very pleasant

My personal favourite was Camping Tau de San Jose which doesn't having a swimming pool and my favourite with a pool Camping Cueva Negra.

There´s nothing in the world quite like getting back to nature. Lying on the grass, watching the stars and listening to the sounds of nature.
