General

  • Among spectacular mountain scenery in Sierra Nevada National Park
  • Spotless amenities and peaceful setting near the Andarax river
  • Bar and restaurant on site; Almócita village a kilometre away

Clap your eyes on these fab mountain views... handsomely awaiting in a secluded Spanish location slap bang in the Sierra Nevada National Park.

Hailed by happy former guests as a peaceful and spectacularly scenic haven, Camping Almócita is in the Andalucia region of Almeria, famed as the most arid spot in all of Europe (so much so that Westerns including The Good, The Bad and The Ugly have been filmed in the nearby Tabernas Desert). The wildlife watching is prime around here too – wild boar, wildcats, golden eagles and badgers all have their home in these mountains – and adventurous sorts can zip down and soar among the peaks with a session of skiing or paragliding.

The site is a kilometre from the small village of Almócita, a short stroll from the Andarax river. For day trips, it's just under two hours from here to Granada, an hour from the stunning sands of Roquetas de Mar beach, and 55 minutes to Tabernas Desert: yes, where the spaghetti Western towns were set up... Amenities include spotless showers and toilets, a washing-up area and a bike washing area, along with well-kept facilities of a bar, restaurant and play area.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

The bar is open all year round, from 9am-4pm and 8pm-midnight. Bar opening times may change.

Please note that no English is spoken at this campsite.

    The camp site offered excellent accessibility by foot through the surrounding mountains and was within close walking distances to two towns.

    Disliked: 

    The ground was very hard, make sure you have a hammer for pegs.

Local attractions

This is a walkers' paradise and a wildlife haven, so take yourself contentedly off along the local hiking trails to keep an eye out for birds of all species, lizards of all sizes and mountain goats being rather more nimble on the rocks than your human attempts.

Mountain biking is also a popular pick in the area: it's only a 10-minute ride from the site to the craggy setting of the Canales de Padules, a trail of small lagoons, rocks and waterfalls descending towards the Andarax river. You'll need sturdy shoes and a willingness to get your feet wet to tackle the trail: this is river hiking, so get shod with footwear that will work underwater too.

Well worth the hour's drive for a day trip is the Cabo de Gata-Níjar Natural Park, the biggest protected coastal area in Almeria. It's a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve made up of islands, cliffs and volcanic rocks; arrange diving, boating and birdwatching trips from here, or set off on the Caldera de Majada Redonda trail to hike to the centre of a volcano caldera.
