de Mar - The popular tourist resort town of Roquetas
de Mar was once a sleepy, picturesque fishing village, dating from Roman
times, and it still retains its warren of Moorish alley-like streets and
pretty aspect of white-washed houses ascending the hillside and lovely
sandy beaches. Tabernas, 36 kilometres away, is home to three film
sets, Mini Hollywood, Decorados and Rancho Leone, which featured in classic
movies such as Fistful of Dollars and The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. Mini
Hollywood is now entirely given over to a spaghetti-western theme park
featuring authentic-looking wooden houses, a saloon, bank, church and school
house. Shoot-outs and stunt shows are staged here, and a Zoo and an African
Museum have opened nearby. Featured hotels
DE MAR FEATURED HOTELS, ALMERIA, SPAIN
|Roquetas de Mar is a municipality
of Almería province, in the autonomous community of Andalucía,
Spain. It is what is known as an "urbanization", which is a tourist
area with hotels, restaurants and shops and is predominantly a Spanish
holiday resort for the summer months.
The town is one of the two
major resorts in Costa de Almería, the other being Mojácar.
With its vast beaches and the fact that Roquetas does not attract the sheer
number of tourists as some of the other resorts, there is plenty of room
to lounge around and sunbathe, or to take a leisurely swim, without the
problems of overcrowding seen on many Spanish beach resorts.
Roquetas de Mar has many
facilities including hotels, restaurants, tapas bars, a bull ring, an auditorium
and a language school.
