General and travel information

Almeria is located in the extreme southeast of the Iberian Peninsula. It is the capital of its homonymous province and belongs to the autonomous community of Andalusia in Spain. Almeria is classified as the most arid city in Europe and has more than 200 km of beaches.

This area is new to the surfing scene, less than two decades ago that began to consolidate, is a spot for surfers open to experience, if you are one of those who like to get out of the conventional destinations and take a look at new places, then it is ideal for you. Although the consistency of the waves is not the same as in other regions of Spain, you can get good sessions with volcanic bottoms and the best thing is that it is not the favorite destination for the most experienced surfers, it is an ideal scenario for beginners or amateurs rather than professionals. If you are just starting in the world of wind sports, here is a guide to everything you need to know.

Another advantage is the number of reserves and natural parks, among which we recommend above all the Cabo de Gata-Níjar Natural Park, where marine activities are combined with waves up to 2 meters perfect for surfers and land activities such as hiking. It is an area with a rocky bottom, so it is recommended for the most experienced, also the presence of sea urchins is a factor to take into account.
