Cala San Pedro.. The Spanish Scoraig? | Almeria, España 2019

Situated in a secluded cove on the remote coast of Spain’s Cabo de Gata-Níjar Natural Park, can be found the village of San Pedro.. 


Populated by a mix of hippies, seasonal travellers, and a small number of full-time off-grid residents, it can be accessed either by walking in several kilometres on the cliff path, or by boat from the nearest village, Las Negras. Sound familiar? Having spent a couple of summers in the remote community at Scoraig on Scotland’s rugged highland coast, and being in the area I just had to go and check it out..
