This is one of the must visits in the Almeria region. Stunning views and natural beauty and is of course the most south-easterly point in mainland Spain. Well worth the drive.

It requires at least half a day, to see the whole park, but it is worth the time. Rocky mountains, narrow and winding roads, exquisite views. Small villages with small restaurants, where mainly "locals" have meals. It is true, old Spain.

Stunning and beautiful countryside this area is well worth a visit but if the time when the flamingos arrive remember your binoculars!! The one road in and out to Las Negras can be daunting for height and narrowness but well worth it for the views.

Beautiful Natural Park in the heart of Almeria. Wonderful drive through (yes sorry you need a car) with the road hugging the side of the cliff and taking you to beautiful beaches.

I am assuming the cruise ship docks in Almeria? My advice would be to hire a car and drive to the National Park. The roads are good and it is a 40 - 45 minute drive. The views are stunning. Depending on the time available... More
