Cabo de Gata, Almeria

Almeria’s southeastern Cabo de Gata has a beauty all of it’s own. Seemingly a baron desert in the summer months when rolling hills baked are to a yellow-brown crisp, contrasting glittering turquoise waters, the landscape comes to life after the winter rains. Sea quills (Drimia maritima) send up their towering spires of white flowers in the autumn; annuals burst into bloom in the spring; whilst century plants (Agave) mark the landscape throughout the year. A paradise for wild flower enthusiasts.
