Cabo de Gata: Cycling Destination
Almería offers you security and closeness in a cycling paradise like the Cabo de Gata Natural Park.
The beginning of this paradise lies in the municipality of Carboneras, a fishing village with a delicious gastronomy where you will find your first cycling friendly accommodation, Hostal el Dorado.
Enjoy cycling on one of the most important European bike routes. On ruta 8 Eurovelo you’ll experience never-before-seen corners, with incredible views of Playa de los Muertos and the cliffs, the pretty hard climb to the lighthouse (Faro) and Mesa del Roldán with incredible views in one of the places where Game of Thrones became filmed, not to be forgotten.
Ascents and descents, safe roads and fresh air from the best corner of Andalusia to cycle with an ambassador number one like David Bisbal.
A mandatory stopover to enjoy great views from the Amethyst (Mirador del Amatista) viewpoint.
Breathe and enjoy cycling in an incredible location, in a unique and protected landscape, to reach small towns like Agua Amarga, San José and Isleta del Moro, where you can enjoy another place to relax for a night or longer. Find Cycling Friendly Accommodations like Barceló Cabo de Gata, MC San José, Apartamentos Madre Selva, Hotel Balisa, Cortijo El Sarmiento, La Joya de Cabo de Gata and Hotel El Tío Kiko.
Take a break and enjoy the beautiful beaches like Monsul, Los Genoveses, Las Negras and Playa de los Muertos. However, make sure that the Levant does not take you to sea. That’s why we recommend keeping an eye on the wind every day.
Follow your cycling experience through Almería to the beautiful Cabo de Gata lighthouse, enjoy a beautiful natural park, the salt pans and viewpoints to watch various birds in the area like flamingos.
Uncrowded communities and accommodations dedicated to cyclists, where they respect the culture of cycling and where people welcome you with open arms. You will find many route friends from different parts of Europe who will make this visit neither the first nor the last.
A wide range of activities such as diving, flamenco and above all an incredible gastronomy with local cuisine and fish straight of the boat at an incredible price.
Everything to have the immense security of enjoying an unknown place, but a cycling friendly paradise.
“Ave María, cuando serás mía Almería”, as David Bisbal says. (Hail Maria, when will you be my Almería?)
