This is the fastest growing city in Almeria province. The population is now around 60.000 people and is expected to rise to 170.000 in 2010. The beaches are very nice but the sea can be a bit rough and alot of times there is too much wind. Its ok for a short beach holiday break.
Its always nice to go for a wolk along the harbour. You can have a drink or eat a snack or take a boat trip.
Roquetas De Mar has a nice promenade along the beach. Its always nice to have a walk with a view at the sea.
Another holiday resort at the costa Almeria is Almerimar. It has a yacht harbour and is still developing for the future.
The romantic old town of MOJACAR, perched high on a hill with narrow kasbah streets and courtyards overlooks Mojacar playa and the blue Mediterranean.
Roquetas de Mar itself is a typical fishing village, with a pretty harbour, whitewashed houses and a ruined castle.
Just some 20 kilometers away from the main City of Almería, Roquetas de Mar is the largest Holiday Resort in the Province.
Mojacar's 'sugar cube' architecture reflects the Moorish heritage that dominated this region for centuries.
