Retamar

Almeria

Discover the charms of Almería on a holiday to Retamar, where the beaches, unspoilt nature and excellent food will all take your breath away.

Retamar is a town in Almería, located about 8 miles from the main town centre. Between June and October, the average temperature in the area doesn’t fall below 20ºC, meaning the climate is ideal to enjoy Retamar beach. This urban beach with its sand and pebbles runs along the promenade.

There are plenty of beach bars and restaurants in the area for you to taste the local cuisine, too. Try the green bean stew, ajo colorao, a mashed potato dish with dried peppers and pea omelette. Don't forget to wash down your dessert with a glass of mistela, a delicious liqueur made from grape must. What better way to enjoy our cheap trips to Retamar?

The Cabo de Gata-Níjar Nature Park is well worth a visit. It’s an ideal area for hiking with the sea as your backdrop. More adventurous visitors can camp out at night and sleep under the stars. It might look a bit like a desert, but don’t be fooled by appearances, it’s the perfect place for reflection and to really connect with oneself.

Retamar’s monuments are also worth mentioning. You won’t want to miss the shrine of Torregarcía, dedicated to the Virgen del Mar, the Virgin of the Sea, with its octagonal floor plan and its hemispherical dome. Located opposite the beach in the middle of nowhere, this temple is truly a magical place.

If you follow the road to the east, you’ll end up at the Torregarcía tower, probably of Islamic origin. It was built to defend the coastline from attacks. Round off your package deal to Retamar by learning more about the local history and visit the Roman Salt Factory.

Almería has its own airport. From there, you need only take the buses L15 and L31 to be in Retamar in fifty minutes. Another option is to get to Almería by train and take a bus from the centre. However you go, you won't want to miss out on our deals on trips to Retamar!
