Cabo de Gata is one of those destinations to which you return. Long stretches of beaches, charming towns, local cuisine and some of the best landscapes in Spain and Europe. It is the only enclave with a desert climate on the continent, an unrivaled place that has inspired film makers and writers, not to mention the visitors who visit it.
The extent of Almería coastline that includes Cabo de Gata is protected as Natural Park. There are only a few villages on its banks, since construction is restricted. That's why direct views of the sea are a privilege from Barceló Hotels & Resorts in Almería star each day.
If visitors want to discover the charms of Cabo de Gata, the list of possibilities is enormous: Mónsul, Los Genoveses, El Playazo or San Miguel These are some of the most famous beaches, and the setting for several legendary film images. Its landscape shows the reason why: large coastline with crystal clear waters, surrounded by volcanic formations and white sand that invite you to unwind from the rest of the world.
The towns of the interior of the park are few, but they have a very special charm. From Barceló Hotels & Resorts in Almeria, all these enclaves are within easy reach of guests, who will not forget the scenes of the western that correspond to the most legendary film belts.
San Miguel, for example, preserves an old church next to the beach, as well as old fishing boats that adorn the coast as museum pieces.

There is also the possibility of visiting the Sierra de Cabo de Gata, home of the Pico El Fraile (the highest volcanic formation in Spain); or Las Salinas and its lunar-like landscapes.
