El Ejido offers the best complementary offer
From agricultural tourism to nautical and sports, with a great leisure offer and many things to do, the municipality of Ejido does not stop growing as a destination that is defined, fundamentally, by the quality of its services
Walking between 'lines' of the best vegetables in Europe while learning (and testing them!) In situ about the agricultural production model that places El Ejido on the world map; observe flamingos and dozens of other species of birds that nest and live for months in the natural paradise of Punta Entinas-Sabinar; horseback riding through this unspoilt beach and wetland area; or try one of the water sports activities (zip line over the water included) offered by Lake Victoria de Almerimar.
Play golf on a spectacular 27-hole course and catch waves, many waves, in the "home" of the three-time world windsurf champion, Víctor Fernández from the community from El Rio. Soak up the history of defense against corsairs at the spectacular Castillo de Guardias Viejas or Torre de Balerma, and go out to sea with a sailing excursion, then scrutinize the beautiful Mediterranean seabed with a diving session.
Dine in a restaurant with a Michelin star, from the sea and from the countryside to the table, and from the table to the crop. Try a go-kart in a fast-paced and fun session with family or friends. Or sail, sail with a sailboat out to sea. Or get lost in the great jungle, with hundreds of species from all over the world, of the La Almunya del Sur Botanical Garden.
These are just some of the many attractive plans for all types of audiences that can be carried out this summer in El Ejido, a municipality that for many is the true unknown of the eastern Andalusian coast and that has a really wide complementary offer and, what is more important, cared for and of high quality.
Its 27 kilometers of coastline, with stretches of virgin beach such as the Punta Entinas Sabinar natural area and a multitude of services that earn it four blue flags and numerous other quality distinctions, offer visitors endless activities and a very good offer of accommodation, both in hotels and in tourist complexes, with a marked family and quiet character. Almerimar, with its spectacular marina or the golf course of its five-star hotel, is the jewel in the tourist crown of a municipality that is characterized by offering quality services, above all else.
The image of El Ejido this year at the Fitur International Tourism Fair will be the most awarded athlete from Ejido, Víctor Fernández, the best example of what El Ejido means in the tourism sector: a true champion that does not stop growing.
