Roquetas de Mar - little rocks of the sea - is a municipality of Almería province, in the autonomous community of Andalucía, Spain. The 'urbanización' - tourist area with hotels and restaurants and shops of Roquetas is predominantly a Spanish holiday resort for the majority of the summer months, but it also receives many visitors from the United Kingdom, Ireland and Germany.

Roquetas de Mar is one of the two major resorts in Costa de Almería, the other being Mojácar. With its vast beaches and the fact that Roquetas does not attract the sheer number of tourists as some of the other resorts, there is plenty of room to lounge around and sunbathe, or to take a leisurely swim, without the problems of overcrowing seen on many Spanish beach resorts.

Roquetas de Mar has many facilities including hotels, restaurants, tapas bars, a bull ring - unfortunately, an auditorium and a language school. The old coastal town, dating from Roman times, is a maze of narrow, Moorish streets, though now surrounded by hotels and shops. However, signs of its history still exist, for example in the remaining tower of Castilla de Santa Ana and in other 16th to 18th century fortifications along the Roquetas coastline. The restored church of la Virgen del Rosario, built in 1789, is home to an outstanding altarpiece, painted in 1957 by Jesus Perceval, depicting the life of the Virgin Mary.

Situated on the Costa Tropical, Roquetas de Mar possesses many good beaches with amenities for water sports. Other sports that are offered include golf, tennis and horse-riding.

In contrast to the holiday beaches, the salt marsh at Las Marinas, 5km. south of Roquetas, attracts flamingos, little egrets and avocets, while at Punto Sabinas, bird watchers may be lucky to sight crested larks or a great grey shrike.
