Spain's regional diversity and many islands give it a multifaceted appeal that has attracted visitors to the country for decades. Its cultural treasures, diverse landscapes, magnificent beaches and mild climate place it at the top of the list of the most popular destinations in Europe. The southern cities’ Moorish heritage, Andalusia’s distinct character, the Balearic Islands’ lively atmosphere and natural landscapes and the Canary Islands’ unique volcanic scenery all transport you to different worlds where unforgettable experiences are guaranteed.
Bathed in sunshine for over 300 days a year, Spain's coastline not only boasts a mild climate and endless beaches, but also a rich cultural heritage. Andalusia, in the south of the Iberian Peninsula, exudes an unparalleled feeling of joie de vivre. Enjoy a relaxed Andalusian evening while enjoying tapas to flamenco music, or marvel at the grandeur of the Moorish-era Alhambra palace in Granada, the Mezquita Mosque–Cathedral in Cordoba or the Giralda tower in Seville. By contrast, Valencia has a more cosmopolitan atmosphere and is brimming with surprises. It has a unique architectural landscape, where ancient buildings rub shoulders with futuristic architectural masterpieces such as the City of Arts and Sciences.
This coastal area to the east of the Andalusian coast is bathed in generous sunshine all year round. It is dotted with endless beaches backed by towering cliffs and barren mountainous landscapes that contrast with the whiteness of authentic little villages such as Mojácar and Nijar. The region's unique landscapes are regularly used as backdrops for films, such as Tabernas, where Sergio Leone's most famous westerns were filmed. The region also boasts a number of nature reserves that are home to many communities of seabirds – some of which are endangered – as well as diverse underwater wildlife and native plant species. The Costa de Almería is also a place of historical interest, where ruins, architecture, culture and art bear witness to the passage of many civilisations.
Roquetas de Mar consists of an ancient town that has been shaped by history and a seaside area bordered by a long, beautiful beach. The fishing port, once the economic heart of the region, is linked to this tourist zone by a seafront promenade stretching for several kilometres. This destination will appeal to those who love exploring interesting sites, as it is home to the unmissable Santa Ana castle and a lighthouse built in 1863. Distance from the airport: 37 km.
El Toyo is more authentic than the neighbouring resorts and offers a unique experience at the heart of the local culture. It boasts some of the finest beaches in the region, which are excellent for boating and diving. The nearby Cabo de Gata-Níjar nature reserve is home to splendid wild landscapes that are particularly popular with sports enthusiasts and hikers. Distance from the airport: 8 km.
The former fishing village of Aguadulce is now a thriving seaside resort. Located between Roquetas de Mar and Almeria, it is accessible via the picturesque coastal road that winds between the cliffs. It boasts wonderful beaches bathed in endless sunshine, as well as a long seafront promenade and a marina dotted with restaurants, bars and shops. Distance from airport: 30 km.

Guadix is best known for its troglodyte dwellings, some of which are still inhabited, but also boasts a rich historical heritage and surprising religious architecture – unmissable sites include the Alcazaba, the beautiful cathedral and the churches of Santa Ana and Santo Domingo. After lunch (not included in the price), the tour continues towards the Sierra Nevada mountain range and Puerto de la Ragua, whose highest point is at 2,000 metres. You will then return back to the coast on the motorway.
Your first stop will be Cabo de Gata, where a boat trip from Carboneras will take you through the pristine landscapes of this superb nature reserve. You'll then head for Mojacar, one of Spain's most beautiful and picturesque villages, where you will have time to explore it at your leisure. The final stop is Route 66 in the heart of the Tabernas Desert, a unique place that has been the setting for many famous westerns!
This excursion will take you to the Tabernas Desert, and more specifically, to the Oasys leisure park, which houses a zoo with hundreds of animal and plant species and the MiniHollywood studios. It was in the heart of this grandiose, Wild West-style setting that a large number of westerns were filmed in the 1960s, including Sergio Leone's legendary films The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, A Fistful of Dollars and For A Few Dollars More. You'll have plenty of opportunity to explore behind the scenes, savour the illusion of travelling back in time and experience the Wild West first-hand!
If you love wide open spaces, nature and magnificent landscapes, Cabo de Gata is a must for your stay in the Almería region! This excursion will take you through this magnificent natural park of volcanic origin, covering more than 49,000 hectares. With its rocky coastline, numerous coves, crystal-clear waters, heavenly beaches and picturesque villages, this is one place you won't want to miss!
This trip will immerse you in the multicultural world of this medieval city – a UNESCO World Heritage Site with captivating Moorish-influenced architecture. Get lost in the maze of narrow streets in the Albaicín, which is lined with beautiful traditional whitewashed houses, or get comfortable on a terrace to enjoy tapas to the sound of flamenco! You'll also have the chance to admire the Alhambra from the heights or take a stroll through the parks, squares or city centre.
