Full description
After meeting your guide in Almeria, you will head out for the natural park with your guide and skilled 4x4 driver. The first stop of the tour is at the Fishing Association at Cabo de Gata, where you will see a defensive tower and the San Miguel Church. Next, you will be driven to the Mermaid Reef where you will be able to see the beautiful landscapes featuring rock formations that peek from the water.  Next drive up a volcanic mountain, from where you will be able to see over 9 kilometers of untouched beaches. After taking in the view, head down to these beaches where you'll be able to see a lava tongue and volcanic ash along the way. In the summer the tour will stop at one of the beaches for a swimming break before heading to an abandoned farm in the park. The last stop of the tour will be the salt flats which are home to many flamingos. Here you will be able to get out and explore the salt flats yourself, before leaving the park and concluding the tour

Excellent moment, discovery ride in a superb 4x4. With a relaxed guide, pleasant and serious in his explanations. No rush to visit the various places. Always asking regularly if it suited and appealed to us. The swimming break was very appreciable and the beach well chosen. The walk was done in Spanish, there must be the same in English ... Thank you very much.
