The nearest large international airport is in Malaga, but there is a smaller airport that has limited flights in Almeria city.
There is not much option to get around. Ideally you would need a car (car rental not available in Adra yet) to visit the surrounding and Adra itself. Bicycle is an option too (but cannot be rented on site). There are no obvious taxi companies located in Adra.
Beaches Adra has 3 beaches. Poniente is located west of the harbor, and is the largest of the three. San Nicolas and Censo are located east of the harbor and extend to the town limit. There is a nice walking/biking path along all three beaches.
Adra is not made to measure for tourists, so there aren't things to buy as such for tourists. There is a market that offers some very fresh produces (mainly fish and greens) it is very characteristic and not to be missed.
Tapas are the name of the game in Adra. With about a dozen tapas bars, one is bound to find something they like. Seafood is the speciality and foods like octopus and mussels are not to be missed. As with the rest of Almeria and Granada the tapas are always free. There are several good restaurant in Adra, some of them happy to serve Tapas as well. Some restaurant offer fixed price menu. Restaurante Bonillo on Calle Guadix is a very good family run restaurant. They offer a 3 course fixed price menu, all our choices were tasty, traditional and seasonal with a twist. Very impressed and great service.
Most tapas bars are located on Paseo de los Tristes in the center of town. There are a couple tapas bars dispersed through the rest of the town, although most are found relatively near or on the beachfront. Plenty of bars and restaurant offer a free drink for each Tapas ordered making al fresco dining tasty and convenient. Such options also available on the seafront.
Adra is less than one hour from the provincial capital of Almeria.
