Magical surprise in the middle of the desert Jun 13, 2012
Ok, when you've actually found the place it is such a pretty site. Very laid-back, nice people, It's just a little paradise in the middle of the desert where you don't expect anything or any one. When I just got there for the first time I thought that, should I ever get married, this would be the place. Owned by French motor bikers. It is decorated in an original and different style with oddities and rare antiques (motor parts, road signs, pirate skulls, nomad tents, pillows, cactuses in all places). Rock and blues minded. And very often live music performances. At night a million stars appear very brightly and clear and then it gets really magical!

One tip: don't go there without having sprayed on mosquito repellant.


Note: this place doesn't have any address. It is in the desert in Cabo de Gata, near camping Los Escullos - in between San José and La Isleta. To go there you best ask the locals as it is not that easy to find if you don't know it and you certainly can't see it from the main road. The trip itself is already a little adventure. Take the road in the direction of Los Escullos and when you arrive at the camping (just before the entrance of the village) turn right. Follow the little dirt road and after about 100 meters you see a sign of the bar that says you have to go left. Don't go too fast and be careful. It is difficult to spot and the 'camino' is not illuminated. Continue this cattle path and you will arrive at the parking.
