The Costa de Almeria region
The east coast of Almería combines wild and mountainous landscapes with kilometres of sun-bathed beaches, giving you uncountable routes for enjoying close contact with nature.
Bathed by the calm crystal-clear waters of the Spanish Mediterranean, the beaches of Vera stretch for 6 kilometres. The quality of the beaches and the excellent landscapes make this area an excellent location for those who love sea sports such as sailing, windsurfing and diving.
A reliable and good quality bus service links Al Andalus Thalassa with the local towns of Mojacar, Garrucha and Vera.
The Vera Playa / Al Andalus Thalassa area
The Al-Andalus Thalassa development is situated only minutes from the coast of Vera Playa on the outskirts of the town of Vera. The town of Vera has a quaint structure of cobbled streets, where a market is held every Saturday morning. The bullring at Vera is also of particular interest, hosting various events throughout the year.
The Al-Andalus Thalassa development is situated only minutes from the fabulous beach-side resort and old town of Mojacar.
In Mojacar every June the locals celebrate the "Moors and Christians" in a spectacular 3 Day Festival.
Enjoy a family day out at the nearby "Parque Aquatico Vera" which is within a short distance from Al-Andalus Thalassa. A local bus service also operates in the local area. The Water park is beautifully landscaped with a stunning mountain backdrop and has all facilities for a great day out.
The local Puerto Rey Sports Club (Club Deportivo) is only a couple of minutes away from Al Andalus Thalassa by car and is a fantastic public resource offerring tennis, paddle tennis, crazy golf, a golf driving range, putting green, pitch and put, beach volleyball, a gymnasium, fitness room and numerous classes.
Only 5 minutes or so drive away is the small town of Garrucha, famous for its fish, resplendent with its working harbour, restaurants, shops and beach. Another alternative place to spend your days or evenings.
A 60 minute drive to the town of Tabernas brings you to "Mini Hollywood", the longest established of three theme parks in the area. The other two, Western Leone and Texas Hollywood, are still working film locations, but Mini-Hollywood is now entirely given over to a theme-park. Numerous Spaghetti Westerns were filmed along with classics such as Lawrence of Arabia, Indian Jones, Back to the Future and Mad Max.
The theme park features staged shootouts; stockaded fort; Mexican pueblo; Indian tepees; western style saloon and a zoo.
If you feel like burning some rubber, why not hire go karts and take on your friends and family. There are two tracks and several different types of kart. One track is suitable for children and they have facilities for disabled drivers too. Good value entertaining fun.
For those who prefer mountains, the area offers many routes for walking or cycling and caves for underground exploration. The Yesos de Sorbas caves are magnificent caverns and galleries forming a unique underground complex, accessed by guided tours of various degrees of difficulty. Of great ecological and environmental value, this natural landscape is outstanding for the formations of pits and galleries that open into impressive caverns filled with stalactites and stalagmites.
Sea enthusiasts can enjoy diving in the rich sea beds of the bays around the Cabo de Gata, water skiing, windsurfing or boat trips on the Mediterranean. Of great ecological interest, the park includes some of the most beautiful coastlines of the Mediterranean, featuring cliffs and lonely bays, extensive beaches and reefs. It is the perfect place to visit unspoilt fishing villages, the salt flats with their pink flamingos, the lighthouse and the unusual beaches of Mónsul and Genoveses and San José which are the nerve centre of the park.
