Spanish holidays aren't just about bustling resorts complete with vibrant nightlife, watersports aplenty and family-friendly attractions. The eastern coast of Spain has many relaxing snippets of coastline, where the Mediterranean's crystal clear waters wash up on glorious sandy bays. The Costa de Almeria, renowned for its idyllic scenes and rugged landscapes, is a perfect place for holidaymakers to relax in the tranquil settings, while taking the weight of their feet. As one of the most popular resorts, Mojacar has a magnificent backdrop of mountains and provides a dream destination for anyone looking for the best of both worlds. Whether you're hoping to sit back and chill out, or you'd prefer to take advantage of the vast array of activities available, including horseback riding, watersports and biking in the mountains, there's plenty waiting for you.
Cabo de Gata Natural Park
Covering over 70,000 acres of Spanish landscape, the Cabo de Gata Natural Park is classed as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and despite being the driest place in Europe, is home to a variety of flora, fauna and wildlife that just add to the park's beauty. Perfect for lovers of the great outdoors, head off to explore the area for an afternoon and truly appreciate the beauty that mainland Spain boasts.
While you could spend your days exploring what the town's cobbled streets hold, at least one day on its beach is a must. An area of natural beauty, the Blue Flag areas only make up a small part of what's waiting to be discovered. While the main beaches have been considerably developed over recent years, parts of Mojacar Playa are still pristine, unspoilt and a perfect place for relaxation or adventure.
Ride a Camel
Don't get the hump! A perfect outing for people of all ages, you can ride one of the dromedary camels on the beach of Mojacar for an alternative way of admiring the views. Take along a picnic and make an afternoon of it, or head back to the beach for some fun in the sun.
Fancy a round of golf during your visit to Mojacar? The marina golf course provides a challenging opportunity for any avid golfer, with parts of the course more demanding than others. While it may be right next to the seaside, there's a great selection of quality holes with fairways, bunkers and greens that will test novice golfers to the max.
Visit the Church of Santa Maria
A wonderful example of a traditional Spanish church, the Church of Santa Maria can be found in the heart of Mojacar Pueblo and, while it's a little on the small side, it makes up for its size with plenty of beauty for you to admire. The whitewashed sugar cube houses that can be found in the town add to the prettiness of the area, ideal if you fancy a change of scenery from your seaside hotel.
A favourite destination amongst both local and foreign holidaymakers, Mojacar can be found on the southern coast of Spain, where tranquillity and laid-back days are a given.
