Camping La Garrofa is tucked in a small cove right by the beach, about 5Km West of Almeria town. It is clearly signed from Almeria, just stick to the coast road. The entrance and on site manoeuvring could be difficult for large vehicles - not recommended for towing caravans. The pitches have electric hookups and awnings to protect from the sun, in what is one of the driest, hottest areas of Spain. The beach itself is nothing special.

The facilities are fairly basic but include toilets, showers, a washing machine, and wash up area. Unfortunately hot water was not available at the time of my visit. There is also bar and small shop. The reception staff speak good English and were helpful. Wifi is charged at 3 Euros per day, or 8 Euros for a week, but is slow.

Almeria's Alcazabar, possibly the best surviving Moorish fortification in Spain, is free to visit for EU citizens and affords great views of the town and coast. The wider area is famous for it's cave towns and the filming of countless Spaghetti Westerns. The landscape is impressive.
