Roquetas de Mar is a municipality in the province of Almería (Andalusia, Spain) that is part of the metropolitan area of Almería-Poniente. Its surface area is 60 km² and it has a density of 1,290.38 inhabitants/km². It is located at an altitude of 10 meters and 19 kilometers from the provincial capital, Almería.
Roquetas de Mar has the largest vacation infrastructure in the entire province; it is not in vain that it receives more than two-thirds of the tourists that visit Almería each year. Located in the west of Almería, a little less than twenty kilometers from the capital, Roquetas' activity has always revolved around the sea.
The salt flats and inshore fishing were the sustenance for centuries of a population that in the mid-20th century discovered intensive agriculture as the driving force of its economy, which a few decades later would be joined by tourism.
