Monsul is one of many breathtakingly beautiful beaches within the Cabo de Gata nature reserve situated in the coastal part of the province of Almeria which is at the south-eastern extreme of Andalucia.
How to get there:
San José is the main fishing village on this coastline. At the top of the town you take a well signposted road to the ‘playas’ which quickly turns into a rumbly forest track. After 2.5km you will pass the equally stunning beach of Genoveses and after another 1.5km you will see Monsul. You can park your car along the track but spaces are very limited. In summer, when visitors are at their peak, it is recommended to take the regular shuttle bus from San Jose (stops also at Genoveses and another beach farther on, Barronal).
