This morning we took our friends on a tour of the western part of the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata. First we stopped at Las Salinas, the salt flats.
Then we went to the newly restored La Iglesia de las Salinas. This church looks lovely now particularly set against the bright blue sky.
On the other side of the road fishing boats are pulled on the sand.
This long stretch of beach is called Playa del Almadraba.
We carried on to El Faro de Gata. We stopped below the famous lighthouse to get a better view and ….
…. then from the lighthouse looked down at the rocks, Las Sirenas. The clear, calm sea was perfect for kayaks.
We drove a little further to the cove Cala Raja.
On the way back we stopped at San Miguel de Cabo de Gata where bathers and fishing boats share the beach. We dropped our guests off at Almeria coach station. They are a well travelled couple but were smitten by the beauty of the Parque Natural.
We have posted photos of these places before but these I think are a little different.
