Homes and Villas in Cabo de Gata for Holidays


Holiday rental accommodation, apartments and villas in Cabo de Gata Spain


Of the many protected areas in Andalucia, Cabo de Gata is one of the largest and is located in the Costa de Almeria. If you are looking for a place to base your holiday rental apartment or town house to take you back to nature then look no further than Cabo de Gata. This area has all that a nature lover could ask for including jagged volcanic landscapes, sheer cliffs, tiny islands along with coves, excellent remote beaches and underwater reefs where you can dive and explore the marine sea-life. Cabo de Gata was declared a protected area due to its geological and ecological importance only overshadowed by its magnificent beauty.

Things to do on Holiday in Cabo de Gata Spain

If you take your holiday villa or apartment in Cabo de Gata be ready to experience nature at its wildest. The protected area is known as The Cabo de Gata Nijar National Park which includes sand dunes, rocky cliffs, salt marshes and sandy beaches. There are coves that you are only able to reach by foot or you can test your cycling or walking skills on the 20 different marked paths through some of the most dramatic countryside rich in wildlife. For the bird watcher the salt marshes have areas set aside to see the many different species of migratory birds that visit the park. Due to its ecological importance the park was declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1997.

Just inland from this rugged and desolate coastal area of Cabo de Gata is desert landscape which is sparsely populated with only a scattering of whitewashed villages in the mountainous terrain. During your stay in your Cabo de Gata holiday villa or town house you will have the opportunity to go mountain biking and climbing. Don't worry about getting lost as there are excellent off road specialist in the area that will advise you as to which paths to follow along with maps of the area.

Cabo de Gata is largely undiscovered by the mass of international tourist and as a result it still retains its Spanish culture, tradition and cuisine. The beaches are not overly crowded either making this an ideal location for your holiday rental apartment or villa. Cabo de Gata is known for the offshore reefs which are great for scuba diving where you can discover and take pictures of the underwater sea-life. You can also go sailing, kayaking and windsurfing from the never crowded beaches or visit one of the secluded coves that appears to be tucked into the cliff-side.

Destinations around your Cabo de Gata Holiday rental

If you find it necessary to take a day out from your Cabo de Gata holiday apartment or town house why not venture over to the beautiful Moorish town of Mojacar Pueblo. This is a village of two parts with the newer more modern part being situated on the seafront known as Mojacar Playa with all the usual water sports that one would expect to find in a coastal town. The original Moorish town is on the cliff top above the newer section with narrow cobbled stone streets and amazing architecture that will set the historians heart alight with envy.
