Agua Amarga is a small fishing village set deep in the Cabo de Gata-Níjar Natural Park. With a population of barely 200 inhabitants during the low season, the village dazzles the visitor with its white limestone and enthrals him with its setting's climate, its peace and quiet.
The beach is large, has fine sand, and is sheltered away from the wind and scarce currents in the area, whilst the surroundings are well communicated by paths, routes and ravines that cross the park leading to the discovery of truly extraordinary coves, views and species.
Agua Amarga belongs to the municipality of Níjar and its location in the Natural Park prevents excessive growth of its city centre, which has helped the village continue to uphold its character as a small town just off the shores of the Mediterranean. Despite this, in the last few years there has been a significant increase in the supply of all kinds of tourist services; this has turned Agua Amarga into a bustling holiday destination where various leisure and sports activities can be practised.
In short, Agua Amarga is a singular place to enjoy a relaxing seafront holiday in the midst of the unexpected nature of Cabo de Gata.
