San José, which lies between the hills of En Medio and Cala la Higuera, is a pretty fishing village hidden in a bay of crystal clear, shallow waters in the heart of Cabo de Gata. Being a busy attraction in the summer months for tourists the world over, it has not lost the charm and beauty, typical of Cabo de Gata - It also marks the best starting point for drives to some of the most extraordinary places on Cabo de Gata such as Campillo de los Genoveses, a vast vista of open parkland watched over by the old windmill (now restored), and the inlet of the same name; the Playa de Mónsul, a beach with impressive forms and a huge dune leading down to it; the welcoming Playa de la Media Luna, the stunning Playa de los Genoveses and the secluded coves of El Barronal and Carbón.

San José, on the route of Cabo de Gata´s volcanic and botanical wonders, as well as cinemagraphic claims to fame, is well documented for the green fingered amongst us; rare flora and forna can be seen across Cabo de Gata, Sierra Filabres and Sierra Cabrera, with many of these tablets posted across the Parque Natural.
