This is a less known part of Spain. Not that turistic, but very nice. We drove around by car, visited small villages and sandy beaches. We come back

The Cabo de Gata park is fantastic for walking but do wear appropriate shoes and carry plenty of water The scenery is breathtaking and the scent of wild thyme and fennel creates a beautiful experience. Great for spotting crested larks and black wheatears.

Thank Anne T
