Aguadulce on the Costa Almeria means “fresh water” and this resort certainly lives up to its name with clear blue water lapping the palm tree lined beach. This Spanish destination is geared up for those that want a great holiday full of watersports, good food, welcoming bars, time on the beach and stunning natural beauty. Spend your days down by the pretty harbour or wandering around the national park surrounding Aguadulce.
Things to Do
From days at the beach to walks in the rugged interior of Cabo de Gato National Park, outdoor adventurers will love Aguadulce. The National Park’s landscape can be described as volcanic with its rocky boulders and wild beaches. This park is a great place for a walk or even to catch a glimpse of the local birdlife. Slightly further afield are the hillside houses of Mojacar or the famous Alhambra theatre in Grenada.
Food and Drink
Aguadulce comes alive around the marina and with a selection of restaurants and bars to choose from, this is a great place to be at any time of day. Watch the yachts bob around the harbour and enjoy some fresh seafood or sample a cocktail or two as the sun goes down. The evenings are quite laid back here but there if the drinks are flowing, some bars do stay open through to the late evening!
A mixture of pebble and sand, the beach in Aguadulce is spacious and quiet enough to accommodate the summer crowds. Backed by a string of palm trees along the promenade, the beach is a big attraction here and the watersports on offer add that little bit of extra fun. Hop on a banana boat or jet-ski, or just grab a towel and pick a patch of sand on the 2.5km long beach and enjoy the sun.
