Los Genoveses beach in Almería

If you still do not know what your destination will be for this vacation, but you know you want to go to the beach, today's post may help you finish deciding. In Hard Hobbit To Break We want to tell you about one of the most wonderful beaches in our country.

It's in the Cabo de Gata, in Almería, and it is a totally wonderful corner of the Spanish coast. An unspoilt beach with beautiful fine golden sand dunes.

Wild and natural

Los Genoveses beach is located very close to the town of Saint Joseph, in the heart of the Cabo de Gata Natural Park, and is quite long (it is more than a kilometer long). It owes its name to the fact that a fleet of Genoese ships landed right on this beach that arrived to support Alfonso VII, King of Castile in his war against the Muslims in 1147.

Today, this beach is a redoubt of great beauty, surrounded by sand dunes very fine and pure, and of the typical vegetation of the area such as prickly pears, agaves and pitas. It is a perfect beach for swimming, because of its transparent and crystalline waters, and because the depth is smooth and progressive, and you have to walk a long way to cover you (which is perfect for children). You can also practice scuba diving and other water sports, and there is a designated area for those who want to practice nudism.

How is a wild beach, does not have beach bars or other services more typical of an urban beach, but that is not inconvenient for everyone to want to spend a perfect summer day on it. So to protect it from overcrowding At this time of year, parking is limited to a few cars. And when it is full, you can only access the beach by public transport (from the town of San José there are minibuses that go there) or on foot.
