Almería, what to do with coach or minibus hire with driver

Beaches in Almería Province

If you are not interested in visiting the city of Almería, you should organize your trip with a rental bus with driver around Almería to Parque Nacional de Cabo de Gata, so that you can enjoy the views at San José, a peacefull place with a great beach called Playa de los Genoveses. If your trip is during August, it will probably be very hot and you might want to also go to quiet and low keyed beaches such as Playa La Almadrava and Playa Las Salinas where in older times salt was produced.

Mojacar is a site that no beach lover should miss. As well, visitors that are interested in history and the Moorish connection will like it as well. 70% of the tourists who visit this site are from the United Kingdom. Remember to go to the Fortaleza, a site that looks over the sea and is truly worth the visit.

Our suggests are Restaurante Las Eras in Tabernas, with its large servings and a family atmosphere; Restaurante Quesería Galatea in Almería that has its own bodega and serves high cuisine, and Restaurante Taberna Cordobesa in Mojácar with its exclusive andalusian cuisine.
