Get around[edit]



Beaches Adra has 3 beaches. Poniente is located west of the harbor, and is the largest of the three. San Nicolas and Censo are located east of the harbor and extend to the town limit. There is a nice walking/biking path along all three beaches.



Tapas are the name of the game in Adra. With about a dozen tapas bars, one is bound to find something they like. Seafood is the speciality and foods like octopus and mussels are not to be missed. As with the rest of Almeria and Granada the tapas are always free.

Restaurants are almost non existent in Adra. The couple that are available tend to be overpriced.


Most tapas bars are located on Paseo de los Tristes in the center of town. There are a couple tapas bars dispersed through the rest of the town, although most are found relatively near or on the beachfront.


  • Barcelo Mirador de Adra, C/Fabricas. The only hotel within Adra. For all intents and purposes it is a four star beachfront resort that caters to mostly package tourist groups. Rooms are very modern and all have a balcony facing the beach. Breakfast is included in room rates. Despite being the only option, this is a great hotel to stay at. €60.
