We are going for a holiday to Roquetas de Mar and will be taking the car. Does anyone know if there are any interesting places to visit in that area?

If you find any let me know. I went there years ago there was a lovely little village and harbour just a mile or so north. Last time I visited it had completely gone! 😬.

I have tried everywhere in this area to buy a map of Almeria but the few places that sell maps only do Costa Blanca, hoping to call at Mojacar on the way down but would like some recommendations for day trips.

You will get one at the service station on route to Almeria once you enter Andalusia. I bought mine there last year. Enjoy your trip.

Top ten things to do in Almeria according to trip advisor. You can even filter out different options with type of attractions. Personally i'd go straight in at the Mini Hollywood - as heard it's interesting.

You don't need maps anymore. You open your phone, you go to google maps - you find options to search for local attractions. Paper maps cause arguments with the missus :lol:

I am no better with a phone than with a sat nav unfortunately. I do have maps on my iPad but I prefer to be able to see a large area and I think I need internet to use the app.

There is an observatory in Gergal called Calar Alto http://www.caha.es/ if you are interested in astronomy. You can drive up to it but unfortunately you have to make an appointment and have a group of 25 before they will allow you inside.
