a travel guide for the province of Almería

Surroundings & activities in Almería
we are your experts!

During the past few years, we have “experienced” Almería from one end to the other and explored this province thoroughly. Yet, we keep discovering new things!

Many of our guests think it is a shame that most travel guides fail to pay this province the attention it deserves. Usually, the travel guides stop at Granada, which is located at the eastern “border” of Andalusia. Sometimes our provincial capital receives a brief section, but that’s about it. Merely the province of Huelva in the west of Andalusia appears to be more forgotten than us …

Thus, we have been asked more often than once: “You know so much … why don’t you write a travel guide yourself?”

Hence, we have gathered everything you need to see in the province of Almería in the section “What to do in Almería”. Be assured – as soon as we discover something new, it will be added right away.

In this category, we post all of our blog articles that deal with the same topic. But they are shorter and thus easier to comprehend :-)

Our main topic: the Levante Almeriense

To anyone who might be wondering why we have not mentioned the western part of the province in this article yet, let me assure you: The so-called Poniente Almeriense – in other words, the region that stretches from Almería Capital to Motril, will be found here someday as well. Aguadulce, Roquetas de Mar, Berja, and Adra, with its foothills of the Sierra Nevada, have not made it onto our list yet, seeing as the drive there drags a little longer from our place. The sights there are more suited for people who have already discovered everything nearby :-)

Moreover, we need to clarify that our compilation is by no means complete. Every time we review one of our articles, something new comes to mind. It is impossible to write everything about the surroundings & activities …

But now, enjoy the journey from your sofa – and hopefully, we will welcome you soon here on-site :-)
