The Cabo de Gata area is famous around the world because the way the volcanology has manifested in different forms of rock formations. Wherever you look, there are traces of colcanic activity, erosion and sedimentation. It is dated about 12 million years ago. Only a small part of the mountain chain has a more developed volcanic area which now appears almost submerged, between Spain and North Africa, appearing only, in the island of Alboran. This area in Cabo is one of the most extensive volcanic regions of Spain. The most frequent in this area is of lava domes. These are the protuberances formed by the accumulation around the eruptive mouth, viscous laval an dinability to flow.

Following these lava dome formations as Mesa Roldan, the Volcanic crater most visible by the Rodalquilar valley, the dunes oolitic fossils on the beach of Genoveses and in El Playazo, fossilized tongues of lava on the beach of Monsul, volcanic chimneys the most beautiful examples are the reef of the Sirens, and the mountains formed entirely by colcanic material like the Cerro Negro in the village of Las Negras.

Although our tour cannot take you to all these places in the region, we will focus on the highlights and the pirate beach, used in the movie Pirates of the Carribian. But this was not the only time the area was visted by pirates. It was chosen by the movie as a location because near the beach of El Playazo, a luxury for bathers a defensive tower was built in the sixteenth century.

The Barbary pirates took advantage of mineral transport to the beach to steal it, that is why the tower was built.
