About Local RestaurantsThere is a vast variety of local restaurants - of course the local fare is fish but there are also chinese, austrian, pasta, and pizza restaurants and even an angus steak house in Garrucha - definitely recommended! Their steaks are delicious, attractively presented and generous in size. My recommendation is not to order a starter!
About Children ActivitiesThe Spanish welcome children and it is no exception here. There will be no problem taking children to restaurants in the evening and there are children's play areas near the beach in Garrucha and Mojacar.
About Local AttrcationsThe ancient hillside village of Mojacar Pueblo is perched in the Sierra Cabrerra mountains and can be seen from the first floor terrace. It offers spectacular views and celebrates many fiestas throughout the year. Charming narrow cobbled streets frequented by many artists and houses interesting craft shops.
About ParksThe Cabo de Gata National Park is just the other side of Mojacar. This is a protected area with 30 kms of beautiful coastline. This area is also popular with bird-watchers (twitchers!)
About FishingFisherman can be seen along the coast and many fish from the beach in certain areas. It is definitely entertaining visiting the active fishing harbour in Garrucha in the afternoon to see the fish auctions.
About Airport InformationThe closest airport is Almeria and flights arrive from Birmingham, Gatwick and Stanstead; Murcia and Alicante airports are further away but an easy drive along the E15 motorway.
Airlines to check are Easyjet; BMI Baby; Mytravelite; and also Tarleton travel which is based in Mojacar. They will also arrange pick up from the airport.
About SkiingThere are skiing facilities at Granada in the Sierra Nevada mountains. There are about a 90 minute drive away.
About GolfingThe following golf courses are a short drive away:
Dessert Springs - a prestigious golf course with a dress code;
Valle de Este - less formal and I am told one of the best courses;
Two further golf courses in Mojacar and Turre. The golf course in Turre is informal and a nine hold course while I understand the course in Mojacar is challenging!
About DivingThere are several diving schools in the area - Mojacar, Villaricos and San Juan de los Terreros. I am not a diver but I belive these are accredited diving schools and the area is popular with divers.
About BeachesThe nearest beach is at Puerto Rey - a wide sandy beach which I have never seen crowded even in August. (See photograph) Lovely for a stroll. For those who enjoy walking there is a promenade which runs the length of Garrucha past the beaches and the fishing harbour. (Also see photograph)
About TransportWe do recommend that you hire a car to enjoy the area to the full but there is a local bus which stops just outside the complex. This will take you to the nearby towns of Garrucha, Mojacar and Vera. There is a coach from Vera which goes to the airport at Almeria.
About Weather/Climate/TemperatureThis area is reputed to have the greatest number of sunshine hours in Europe. Hot in the summer, but there is often a breeze from the sea; moderate climate in the winter. The first-floor terrace is south-west facing so benefits from the evening sun.
About BarsThere are number of bars in nearby towns of Garrucha and Mojacar; some livelier than others.
