The beautiful coastline of Adra attracts many tourists all through the year. The reason that makes this place so attractive is its extremely pleasant climate all the year round. Winter and summer both are very pleasant, making the place crowded with tourists who come from different parts of the world throughout the entire year. Even during the peak of summer the temperature does not go beyond 38 degrees.

Founded in the eighth century BC, Adra is known for its historical importance. However, due to its maritime location and the fishing activities here, this place remains a very prominent one for all kinds of trading activities. Seafaring is also quite popular in this place, which was discovered by the Phoenician sailors. During that time the place was named Abdera. The location is also favourable to carry on various economic activities, making it a commercial hub as well. The place was later conquered by many other rulers like Carthaginians, Romans, and lot more. As you explore this place a lot of historical back ground comes out.

Even now fishing is the major activity in this place and vegetable cultivation is of primary importance too. So you can find a number of vegetables that are fresh.

You get to see many white sandy beaches that are so neat and tidy that they have even won the Blue Flag for being maintained so well. The fauna as well as flora in this region are truly amazing and keep the tourists spell-bound. As the water is very neat and clear it’s a happening place for divers and other water sports enthusiasts. There are also places which are so quiet and away from the bustling crowd that you will enjoy the peace and serene atmosphere. If you plan to travel to this place with your family, then you would love the neat beaches that give lot of privacy and enjoyment.

The fishing port is the busiest place in Adra and there are a lot of activities that will leave you amazed. Fishermen can sell off their catch within minutes and you get fresh fish of many varieties. At this port you also get many boats for hire and tourist packages as well. It’s worthwhile to take a tour to the "Paseo Maritimo" which is popular for the sunset viewing. There are also towers like the "Torre de Guainos" and also a castle that is truly outstanding.
