Car Hire Roquetas de Mar

Roquetas de Mar Guide

There is very little to do in Roquetas de Mar apart from simply enjoy its wonderful beaches. There are several of them with immaculate golden sands and clean water. Behind the beach is what is known as the ‘Green corridor’ an area of natural vegetation that has been left in place to help preserve the biodiversity of the resort. This theme continues in the Puntas Etinas National Park to the west of the resort which is a marshland habitat full of wading and migratory birds and is popular with visiting European twitchers. The Cabo Gata Nijar is another biodiversity reserve, this time attracting snorkelers who will see myriad beautiful fish in the waters offshore.


Roquetas de Mar Directions

To reach Roquetas de Mar from Almeria Airport you need to head west along the E15 towards Motril and Almunecar. After 18km you will see Roquetas de Mar signposted off the road. After travelling through little villages of expat houses you’ll come to the resort. You’ll find it easy to get to Almeria Airport from the UK as over half the flights it services originate in the UK. Ryanair and easyJet are the main operators to Almeria.

Roquetas de Mar Info

Roquetas de Mar is relatively unknown to northern European tourists being a favourite of Spanish holidaymakers who appreciate the quiet nature of the resort and the lack of villa complexes. That is changing as European expats also recognise its advantages and the developers are becoming more willing to build there to take advantage of the population increase. It is still a quiet resort when compared to that of other Spanish resorts and attracts families and couples who want to enjoy the tranquil atmosphere of the resort.

Roquetas de Mar Trivia:
  • Roquetas de Mar is primarily popular with Spanish tourists
  • It’s one of the two major resorts on the Costa Almeria, the other being Mojacar
  • The population of the resort is rapidly increasing with the expat population growth seen in the region.
  • Roquetas is very unusual in the south of Spain as it is rarely overcrowded, even in peak season
