Roquetas de Mar

What You Need to Know Before You Go

Roquetas de Mar is a picturesque fishing town in southern Spain, best known for its golden beaches. While they're the main lure for sun-seeking vacationers, the picturesque beachfront promenade is the town's hotspot for shopping, nightlife, and top-notch tapas, while the old town is ripe for exploration with its narrow Moorish streets and quaint rustic abodes.

There's also plenty of attractions here too. Once a lookout for pirates, the 17th-century Santa Ana Castle now hosts art exhibits and summer concerts, while the Aquarium Roquetas de Mar features a stingray touch tank. For nature lovers, the Punta Entinas-Sabinar wildlife reserve offers the chance to see wild flamingos.
