Agua Amarga 1

Agua Amarga (“bitter water”) is a little white-washed fishing village o­n the edge of Cabo de Gata nature reserve. It sits in a quiet and sheltered bay almost hidden o­n the coast between two cliffs. Agua Amarga is fringed by a magnificent fine, sandy beach that stretches for 800m in front of the transparent turquoise waters of the bay.

There is a strong Moorish influence over the architecture of the village. Agua Amarga has a relaxed atmosphere and the hospitality is warm. It is a popular resort with the Spanish, all year round, as an ideal place for a relaxing holiday.

Moreover, Agua Amarga has been described as o­ne of the last hidden paradises of the Mediterranean. Of late, the village has gone through controlled tourist development that sympathetically mixes the modern with the traditional.
