Playa de los Genoveses

Found on the Costa de Almeria, around three kilometres from the town of Nijar, Playa de los Genoveses forms perhaps the most stunning vistas of Cabo de Gata Natural Park. With smooth yellow sand stretching the length of an entire bay, and surrounded on its inland side by virgin dunes, there are no facilities or amenities on Playa de los Genoveses. Visitors therefore need to bring all they will need for a day on the Med here, including plenty of water in the summer months, and bags for collecting and returning home with any rubbish.

The beach is reached via an unsurfaced dirt road, with car numbers limited in the summer. The best way to access Playa de los Genoveses is therefore probably public transport, or the pleasant one kilometre walk from San Jose.

The shallow entry into the Mediterranean means the beach sees regular swimmers, and although Playa de los Genoveses is not officially a nudist beach, people both swim and sunbathe without clothing.
