San Juan De Los Terreros and its beaches

San Juan De Los Terreros is the easternmost village of Andalucía in Spain, province of Almeria. The coastal village has several bays and beaches nearby. San Juan de los Terreros is about 10 kilometres along the coast to the south of Aguilas, region of Murcia.

It’s a popular part of the Costa de Almería of the Mediterranean resorts of Spain.

In recent years, the beaches of San Juan de los Terreros, which had traditionally been a regional tourist destination, are experiencing a tourism and real estate boom. In a short time it has become an eminently tourist town, which at the same time is forcing its infrastructures to be refurbished.

In front of the coast of San Juan de los Terreros there are two small islets of volcanic nature, the islands of Terreros and Negra, which form the Isla de Terreros-Isla Negra Natural Monument.

The most characteristic monument of the town is the castle of San Juan de los Terreros, built in 1764 on a promontory from which, on clear days, a good part of the Almeria and Murcia coastlines can be seen.

The area has supermarkets, chemist, restaurants, tapas bars, coffee shops, ice-cream parlours, and a medical centre. It also has a nightclub during the summer months and a garden center. An open market takes place during the summer each Sunday morning. The small coves in San Juan de Los Terreros have traditional fishermen’s cottages on the coastline.
