The Costa Almeria has a long history, dating back some 4,000 years. Most of the great Mediterranean civilisations have been drawn to the area because of its natural beauty and strategic location and each have left something of themselves behind. The most noticeable influence is from the Moors, who arrived in 711 for an 800 year stay. They transformed the area with their agricultural techniques, scientific and botanical knowledge, architecture, poetry and intellectual developments.
The Costa Almeria region suffered during the next several centuries, when an economic downturn led to a sharp decrease in its population as most of its young people left to seek employment elsewhere. In recent times, however, there has been a major reversal of fortunes as more people have realised the potential of the area and the tourist industry has boomed. Development, however, has not been at the cost of the beauty that made the region so desireable to the Greeks and Romans, or to the local traditions and values of its people.
Aguadulce has a very lively nightlife, mainly centred around the marina. Tapas bars and restaurants are open well into the night, thanks to the Spanish custom of not sitting down to dinner until at least 9 or 10pm, serving the local cuisine. This is based on fresh fish but given an Arabic twist with the use of special spices and ingredients. Afterwards, enjoy a wide range of music, from traditional Andalucian to the latest pop. You can really experience Spanish life while on holidays to Aguadulce.
