how I did the shopping
. No local shops so I must have somehow got to Almeria but I have no memory of actually going there.
Actually, Almerimar change a lot, new development in the last years take a roll there, new food markets, bars, restaurants, marine
chandlerys, shops, etc... also some bus stops for a ride to town, last time ill be there i estimate about 300 or 400 boats docked in the marina , plus some dozens more in the boatyard, not anymore a desert!!! many sailors for european countrys spend the winter there,, 6 years ago i pay for a 61 ft sloop
about 20 euros per day, water
and electricity included, very cheap
in the past, im not sure how expensive is now, but let me tell you something , Almerimar marina is a public marina run for the goverment so the prices are low , private marinas
are expensive in the med.Regards..
