As the sun beats down on the terrace all day long, this is a great spot to watch the sun rise as the boats go out to sea or watch them come back in with their catch as the sun sets!

The Andalucia region
Almeria enjoys around 320 days of sunshine per year. Mojacar is close to the Park Natural which is an area of outstanding natural beauty and well worth a visit. The desert area lies about 50 kilometres away and was and still is used for filming Westerns etc. It has 2 theme parks One with a good Zoo.Close to Garrucha about 10 kilometres away is a Water world suitable for children as well as Adults.
A Go-Kart track lies about 5 kilometres away.As well as many superb golf courses there is a wide range of activities down by the beach. Walking is also a popular activity outside the main summer months.
In winter it is possible to be sunbathing on the beach in the morning and Skiing in the Sahara Nevada in the afternoon. The historic towns of Granada and Murcia are not too great a distance away.
Mojacar has much to offer with something for everyone. It has tourist attractions in an unspoilt beautiful part of the coast that retains its unique Spanish character.
The Pueblo is a sugarcube village clinging to a steep hillside with flowerbedecked houses, tiny streeets and fabulous views right down over the plains to the playa. You will, we hope love Mojacar and our apartment as much as our previous guests.
The main square looks across to the snow-capped peaks of the Sierra Nevada mountains and is filled with street cafes, bars, boutiques and shops. Take a stroll through the maze of cobbled streets hidden behind the main square and you will find some wonderful
restaurants and bars.
The area has many archaeological sites revealing Phoenician, Roman and Carthaginian histories. Visits to the local markets are very popular: Mojacar on Wednesdays, Garrucha on Fridays and Vera on Saturdays.
The local festivals are a sight to behold - Along with the usual Christmas, New Year and Easter festivals - Is a priviledge to see the Moors & Christians annual summer festival held this year on 10th - 12th June and the 'Virgin del Mar' festival to be held 16th July in Garrucha - 5km.

We had a nice time at Linda's apartment. Although not technically a penthouse as it's not on the top floor it's on the fourth floor, it is high up with fantastic views, It's very … More
Thank you for your lovely comments. Health & safety issues/community rules dictate no sunbeds allowed at the pool, and we obviously wouldnt want our furniture being taken out of the apartment for use at the pool. So glad you didn't attempt that! Just to clarify, other agencies promote this as a penthouse apartment, as while there is one apartment built above the entire block of apartments, it is only the end of their terrace which extends over our apartment, and I dont think anyone could question the spatial views. I'm happy to see you weren't dissappointed otherwise and delighted you enjoyed your stay.

"Fantastic apartment with the best views ever"
We have stayed in Mojacar many times over the last ten years but this is by far the best apartment for both home from home comforts and exceptional views over the mojacar playa even though we had our 16 year old son with us he loved the holiday too, there is something for everyone in Mojacar and the apartment had books, games and British tv should you want it. We are definitely going to stay there again and will be recommending to family and friends.
We are so glad you enjoyed your holiday and thank you so much for your lovely comments. We are always so pleased to hear guests want to return again and would be delighted to help accommodate you and you family!

"Outstanding Apartment in Mojacar Playa"
Being relative veterans of self-catering holidays in Mojacar my wife, 2 small children and I have stayed in some great (and some not so great) apartments there.
This one topped the lot. A very homely feel with everything you could need - and we were there for 3 weeks. Spacious, clean and with great views of the sea AND mountains. The orientation of this apartment (South-facing) also means you get the sun until around 8pm in the summer! Perfect.
All this and under 10 mins walk along the sea front to the nearest supermarket and newsagent and only 5 mins to the nearest bars/restaurants.
As far as the booking process was concerned, the apartment owners were lovely people to deal with and my wife and I would be more than happy to return here.
Thank you so much for your lovely comments! We are so glad everything met with your expectations and will be delighted to have you back again this year!

"A Little piece of paradise!"
We absolutely loved our holiday in this amazing apartment - it has everything you could ask for: fabulous location, breathtaking views, all mod cons, so comfortable. It was our second time staying in this apartment and now we wouldnt stay anywhere else. Its like a little piece of paradise right in the heart of Mojacar. Roll on our next trip!!

"Apartment with the WOW factor"
Lindas apartment certainly has the WOW factor. Stunning views from the terrace, cumfy beds, centrally located for restaurants and the beach. Would certainly recommend this apartment without hesitation.
