“We had a fantastic time in Roaslia and Luis's flat in Carboneras. The town and surrounding area and beaches were lovely and they gave us lots of tips of what to see and do, the best restaurants to visit etc. We kept in communication once we agreed the exchange and though our trips didn't allow us to meet in person we hope to do so at some point in the future. Their holiday flat was lovely with everything we needed to enjoy a great family holiday. Would definitely recommend this exchange! ”

Where is it?
Carboneras is a town surrounded by Cabo de Gata Natural Reserve and has a long and beatiful beach. The beach has a long promenade, good for strolling along, with plenty of restaurants, cafes, ice cream parlours and children playgrounds. In the area (Cabo de Gata) there are many wonderful coves and beaches, some of them considered among the best in Spain, due to their natural and unspoilt beauty.
To a walking distance from our house you can get to supermarkets, restaurants, shops, cafés and, of course , to the beach.
Carboneras is an excellent place for relaxing, but it is also full of life, with lots of good restaurants and tapas bars (you get one "tapa" free with your drink at the bars). It is also a top destination for diving and hiking. It is possible to rent canoes and kite-surf equipment in the beach.
There are some beatiful nearby towns to visit, such as Mojacar white village, Níjar, Almería, Sorbas, Lorca and Cartagena (wonderful Roman theater and forum). The city of Granada is at a 2 h drive. There you can visit La Alhambra palace, maybe the most beautiful monument in Spain. If you travel with kids or are keen on cinema, you can visit a Wild West Town (many Wild West films where made there) in Tabernas. In Roquetas de Mar there is an Aquarium and a Waterpark. In Vera there is another (biggest) waterpark. The nearest airports are: Almeria, Murcia, San Javier (Murcia) and Alicante.
