Roquetas de Mar is a popular destination for families, both young and older families, due to its reputation as a relatively quiet town. It is also very popular with German and British tourists. Situated not far from the southeast corner of Spain, the nearest city is Almeria, is a full 25 km to the west. It is also near the city of Malaga, just 160 km to the west. You can reach Roquetas de Mar easily with a rental car from Almeria Airport.
Spain has no shortage of beautiful beaches and it’s the atmosphere that defines them. Until the early 1990s Roquetas de Mar was little more than a fishing settlement, but today this small port and village of Moorish streets is an up and coming tourist hotspot in Spain's beautiful Almeria region.
The area of Roquetas de Mar is mostly flat, but features the beautiful backdrop of the Sierra de Gador Mountains, part of the Sierra Nevada range. Due to mountain weather patterns rainfall is very scarce here, making it one of the driest areas in Europe.
In addition to a 3 km beach that is never crowded and full of every imaginable water sport, Roquetas de Mar has an excellent 18-hole golf course, Club de Golf Playa Serena. There are also three other courses nearby: La Envia Golf, Alboran Golf and Golf Almerimar. When the dry heat or sandy beaches are too much you can retreat to the Gran Plaza shopping center for some indoor amusements. In addition to 125 shops they feature a multi-screen cinema, bowling alley, and an amusement arcade.
