Things to do in Almería
We like outdoor activities so visiting the Conjunto Monumental de La Alcazaba is one of our favorite things to do in Almería. You can visit this fortress for free. We recommend doing a tour with one of the guides who’ll bring the essence of this Moorish fortress to life. Be prepared for quite a steep climb to get to the fortress. And we promise the climb will be worth it as the views are amazing.
One of the best ways to explore the area around Almería is by kayak. Kayaking in Almería is extra special because you will be kayaking in a transparent kayak! Navigate over the crystal-clear waters and enjoy the flora and fauna beneath your kayak as well!
Kayaking in a transparent kayak is one of the best ways to discover the seabed with bundles of Posidonia Oceanica under your kayak. This transparent kayak tour will depart from Playa San José towards the volcanic environment of the Natural Park of Cabo de Gata-Nijar.
There are two slightly different tours you can choose from. The first tour will go to the cave of Tabaco and Cala Higuera, and the second one to Piedra Galvez and the beach of Genoveses. You can choose the tour that suits you best! The fact of not having the noise of a motor gives you an even nicer way to admire the beautiful area around Almería. And if this isn’t enough, we also offer you to go snorkeling during the tour!
From your jet ski, you’ll enjoy views of the beaches of Cabo de Gata, Carboneras, Mojacar, Garrucha, Vera, Villaricos and San Juan de los Terreros and observe different kinds of fish, castles, towers and defensive batteries of past times.Renting a jet ski gives you the unique feeling of being the boss of the waves of the sea! It’s a fresh and fun thing to do in Almería!
Sometimes on television or at shows, you see people fly over water with a board under their feet and with two powerful jets down that allow them to do this. Did you know that you also can do that?

We can assure you it’s an incredible feeling to flyboard in Almería, but you have to try to understand it. Flyboard is easier to learn than it looks like. If you always dreamed of flying, then why not try flyboard in Almería?
