Our stroll around the village of Cabo de Gata today at this time meant we had the place to ourselves.
Cabo de Gata is a small local village right on the boundary of the Park Natural, a desert scrubland that during first impressions leaves the uninitiated asking "where the hell have we come"? If you would take the time to explore a little deeper you would discover a host of interest including wildlife, such as migrating flamingoes, who spend time here around the shallow salt marshes. To make the most of your visit, a car is essential.
There is more to Spain than meets the eye of the average British tourist. If you would like to discover more than the rowdy bars and take-aways that are styled for our tastes and can be found in abundance in the more popular resorts to the North (Benidorm), and to the West (Marbella), then it is worth a try, you won't find any here. This is the Spain where the Spanish come to holiday. That is what we love about it.
