The Andalucia region
The coastline varies enormously in the degree and type of development along it. The stretch of shore between Granada province and Almeria city is the most blighted by plastic greenhouses, although it has the occasional wildlife oasis, such as the lakes in the Albuferas de Adra Natural Reserve, which attract numerous aquatic birds undeterred by the sea of plastic that surrounds them. Another protected enclave south of the resort of Roquetas de Mar is the Punta Entinas-Sabinar Natural Area, covering a beach and marshlands between two headlands in the municipality of El Ejido, the epicentre of the plastic greenhouse agriculture.
East of Almeria there is a remarkable change as you draw nearer to the Cabo de Gata. The park has a long, rugged coastline with secluded bays and remote beaches, some linked only by a footpath. Much of the park is comprised of volcanic rocky mountains that plunge directly to the shore, creating one of Andalucia´s most dramatic coastlines. San Miguel del Cabo de Gata is the first village you come to in the park from Almeria, close to a saltwater lagoon with exceptional birdlife, the Salinas del Cabo de Gata. The next coastal village is the largest one in the park, San José, with the small resorts of Las Negras, La Isleta del Moro and Agua Amarga to the north.
The most popular resorts are Roquetas de Mar and Mojácar, the latter with the highest concentration of foreign residents in the province.
Mojácar is situated at the foothills of the „Sierra Cabrera”, on the south east coast of Spain, the „Costa de Almería“. Mojácars history goes back to the Bronze Age, occupied over the centuries by Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Greeks and Romans, finally, the Arabians, named the town „Muxacra“, which lead to the actual name. After its turbulent past the village has been revived definitively in the era of international tourism.
White cubic houses, two kilometers away from the sea, about 170m above sea level, nestle into the rock. Narrow streets lead through a labyrinth of the most varied styles of construction, from arabic style to the most modern architecture. From the „mirador“, the lookout point, you have breathtaking views over the desert landscape and the everblue Mediterranean Sea. Many winter holiday makers adore the mild clima. Mojácar has more than 340 days of sun per year. The medium yearly temperature is around 20°C. Winter is normally mild and rainfalls are rare.
As varied as the construction styles are the people who meet here. Appearance and reality mix up. You can just melt with nature, explore old volcanos further inland and stalactite caves, or enjoy one of the not yet overcrowded beaches. 17 km of beaches are at your disposition - either lonesome little bays or busy hotel beaches - to laze around in the sun, do water sports or get in contact with other people in one of the popular beachbars. At night many good restaurants are waiting for you to serve their international food. After dinner you are welcome in the little bars of the old village where getting into conversation is more than easy. It is not rare to meet artists who settled down here inspired by the unique atmosphere. Mojácar is home to the Fundación Valparaíso, an international artists colony.
There are quite a few possibilities to keep busy day and night, typical Spanish. Try an Indian restaurant, Bingo or Karaoke in one of the English bars. From the typical “tapa bar” to the Internet Café, either explore the landscape with a rented scooter or play golf at acceptable prices on the new Playa Macenas Golf Court or the Marina de la Torre Golf Court – everything is possible.
The Almería airport is only about 89km away from Mojácar. The capital of the province Almería with its port is about 95km away. From there ferries regularly cross to Morocco. Two hours by car it takes to the Alicante airport.
Tours to Granada, Cordoba and Sevilla are also recommendable, either by bus with a tourist organization or just discover Andalucia by yourself ...
The „Indalo“, has been used in Almería since ancient times. It is related to the cave paintings found in „Los Leteros“ (Vélez Blanco), -dated back to 2500 B.C.- it is a messenger of luck as well as a talisman. People draw this symbol over the doors to keep away bad spells and storms from their homes. But – keep in mind – the actual Indalo in form of a souvenir only has an effect if it is given to someone as a gift .
