Its a bit of a stint (approx. 1 hr from Cullar) Go for San Juan de los Torreros, which is next to Aguilas. Lovely beach, take the Grandchildren there whenever we are over with them!

There are two main beach areas around the lake, the first one - follow the main road through Cuevas del Campo for about 9km. You will find some good viewpoints along the way before you come to two 'beach' areas - the one to the right is for naturists!

The other is on the Freila side - turn left off the A315 just before the turning for Freila itself (it's well sign-posted).

Also worth a look, is the Thermal Baths the other side of Zujar. Not exactly a beach as such, but you can walk along the shore from there and swim in the lake.

I have been trying to find a decent coastal beach for my daughters when they come over with me - but we were put off by the high winds on the Almeria coast (keep your doors locked as you drive through Aguilas!).

I think I would prefer to head East towards Valencia or Alicante, and perhaps stay overnight to make it worthwhile.

I like the beach at Agua Amarga, just south of Carbonaras. Sandy with safe swimming, and an area on the far left with good snorkelling. And several bars, ice-cream parlours and boutiquey shops!

There's a new beach area just to the west of the Banos de Zujar. It is Zujar's attempt to outdo the beach at Freila. Not sure when it opens but it has got a brand new seating area and a diving/jumping pontoon in the lake.

Thanks to you all, what's the story with Aguilas ??
