EL TOYO / Retamar

In 2005, the luxury resort "El Toyo" was built at the pristine sandy beaches next to Retamar resort. Until then, these beaches have been virgin. "El Toyo" is situated next to the nature park "Cabo de Gata" Foto, 13 kilometers from the city of Almeria and 6 kilometers from the airport.

When building this urbanisation, ecological principles and the maximum comfort for the visitors were considered absolute priorities.

The resort is located next to the sea and disposes of over 35 acres of gardens with palm trees and typical regional vegetation, a golf course with 18 holes, and an artificial lake with a beautiful, palm-lined bridge at just few meters above sea level. The area is crossed by numerous bike paths, and along the generous beach promenade there are beautifully crafted wooden look-out and benches.

In the southern part of "El Toyo" there are mainly private houses with swimming pools as well as sports facilities. The center of "El Toyo" is formed by the golf course, numerous luxury villas, and several high-class hotels which are situated directly on the beach.

Around the lake, particularly on the square "Plaza del Mar", you will find numerous restaurants, terrace bars, bars and pubs. Here you can dine after a relaxing day at the beach and then enjoy the night life.

The beaches of "El Toyo", with white sand, are among the finest in the region. And the ever-growing recreational offerings attract active vacationers: from water sports to diving courses to excursions on camels they find a plenty of opportunities.
