Ejido almeria

30 miles inland from Roquetas de Mar, the boom town of El Ejido stretches roughly 12 km. along the N 340 motorway, which crosses what was once a wilderness of salt-flats and sand dunes and which is now a sea of plastic. 64,000 acres of polythene, supported by eucalyptus posts, provide the environment for the year-round production of fruit and salad vegetables, exported to northern Europe, making El Ejido the most prosperous area in Andalucia.

This emerging locality is already known for the enormous opportunities it offers travellers for all kinds of water sports on its broad seacoast.

The possibilities are many get away to the virgin beaches with sand dunes on the Balema or Punta Entinas coast, wind surf in Ensenada San Miguel, or go to the beaches and marina of the Almerimar development. Once you are set up you are recommended to visit the area’s numerous monuments such as the ostentatious guardias Viejas Castle, which was constructed by order of Carlos III to defend the coast from frequent pirate and corsair attacks.

In its interior there is a theme museum about coastal fortresses, with a display of military uniforms of the period, weapons and models for better understanding of the historical context in which it was built.
