About this location
The Andalucia region
The Costa de Almeria region
Vera is a typically Spanish town with a smallish population of around 14,000 and has many streets, plazas and interesting historical buildings including its own bullring. If you happen to be in Vera in the month of September, you will not want to miss the nine-day Celebration of San Cleofás. The celebration dates back to the 1500's when the Moors and Christians finally ended their battles. Today, the nine-day event offers parades, games, races, culinary delights, bonfires, and more!
The Vera Bullring Plaza de Toros is located at the Calle Mayor roundabout to the south of the town. It is the oldest bullring in the province and was built in 1879 using money generated by the local mining industry. Its Mudejar style has suffered slightly through several restorations during the years, but nowadays, it can be seen and enjoyed during the bullfighting season or by just visiting the ring and its small museum of memorabilia. It has a capacity of some 6,500 spectators and still holds many bullfights each year.
It is possible to walk along the shoreline all the way from Vera Playa to the attractive small harbour of Villaricos to the north or the larger fishing harbour and town of Garrucha to the south. The beach is predominantly sandy, though on the shoreline it can sometimes be pebbly.
The beach stretches approximately 7 kilometres, from just south of Villaricos down through Vera Playa itself, and on to Puerto Rey and Garrucha.
The sea is swimmable all year (even in the depths of winter it is warmer than the seas in northern Europe in summer!). Less hardy souls, which probably includes most Spanish people who are acclimatised to Spanish weather conditions, would probably say that the sea is swimmable from about May to late October. At the height of summer (mid June until mid Sepember) it is wonderfully warm.
Villaricos is a small, unspoilt fishing village, both charming and tranquil, which maintains a typical Spanish feel. The village is located at the foot of the Sierra Almagrera Mountains. Villaricos (rich village) derives its name from ancient silver mines, which have their place in history, as it's from here that Hannibal paid his mercenaries when he besieged Rome.
There is a good selection of restaurants and bars with food at very reasonable prices and cuisine ranging from native Spanish to British pub food. There is a small market every Sunday morning in the village square. There is a superb restaurant called El Mar La Mar which can be found at the entrance road into the village.
If you are travelling with children, you must spend a day at the Water Park (Parque Aquatico Vera). This water park is packed with water slides, flumes, and wave pools. The slides range from the thrilling kamikaze to the less challenging kiddies slides. The water park is open from May to September. Overall there are 21 attractions at the park including 5 slides, 3 pools, a bar, mini golf & a picnic area. There is also a special area set aside for the younger ones.
The park is right next to the Consum supermarket and is just 3 minutes away by car or a 30 minute walk, alternatively you can catch the bus from the bus stop near to the south pedestrian gate.
Garrucha is a beautiful and lively fishing town that still retains much of its original charm. Its tourist slogan is "Garrucha, Sun & Seafood"; the town is famous for the quality of its large red prawns, only fished in the local waters. One of the pleasures of Garrucha is taking a lovely evening stroll around the bay. A palm tree lined promenade framed by white marble balustrades spans the length of the town, almost 2 kms. There are landscaped areas to sit and relax whilst watching the sunset over the Mediterranean sea and delightful play areas for the children. The beach opposite the town centre is the only 'town' blue flag beach in Europe. You have a great choice of shops in Garrucha as well as a huge Friday morning market.
Mojacar Pueblo is the kind of vacation spot that you would expect to see on a postcard. A fairytale village, with its cluster of white sugar cubed buildings clinging to the side of the hilltop. For visitors the village is a delightful place to explore, you will find charming trinket shops, restaurants, bars and terraces. The village is a browsers delight. Arty shops beckon with their bits and pieces hanging from walls and make shift stalls. The winding streets lead you past smartly renovated houses decked out with potted plants and flowers and hole-in-the-wall shops selling everything from trendy clothing to locally made souvenirs.
Look out for the great value hand woven rugs, jarapas and the famous Indalo Man. At the heart of the mountaintop village is the Plaza Nueva where you stand on what appears to be a marble dance floor overhanging the side of the mountain. The views of the unexpected green carpet of agriculture land surrounding the village, Sierra Cabrera Mountains and coast line are magnificent. For those with the energy, further spectacular views await at the Mirador Castillo, which is Mojacar Pueblo's highest point.
High temperatures and the lowest rainfall in the Iberian peninsula has created Cabo de Gata, a large semi-desert area and national park. Cabo de Gata covers 45,663 hectares and is Andalucía's largest coastal protected area, a wild and isolated landscape with shrubby vegetation and dwarf fan palms and some of Europe's most original geological features.. The mountains comprise Spain's largest volcanic rock formation with sharp peaks and crags which fall steeply to the sea creating jagged cliffs and hidden coves with numerous white sandy beaches, some of which are the most beautiful in Andalucia. Offshore are numerous small rocky islands and underwater extensive coral reefs which teem with marine life.
The park encompasses an outstanding variety of habitats from coastal dunes, beaches, steep cliffs, saltpans and salt-marshes and dry river beds, and shelters a wealth of wildlife, including many rare plants and endangered fauna. One of Spain's most important wetland areas for breeding birds is called the Salinas de Cabo de Gata, a saltwater lagoon that runs parallel to the beach, separated from it by a 400m wide sand bar. Located between San Miguel and the Cabo de Gata headland, this lagoon is of outstanding ecological interest. The salinas (saltpans) are the only ones still in operation in eastern Andalucia and are home to pink flamingos.
Cabo de Gata is the perfect place to visit fishing villages, a lighthouse and the unusual beaches of Mónsul, Genoveses and San José. The latter is perhaps the most picturesque village along this route and is the nerve centre and main tourist centre in the park, with a gorgeous harbour flanked by wonderful seafood restaurants. Much of the coastline is only accessible on foot, via some well-marked footpaths and walks, especially between Cabo de Gata headland and San José and Las Negras and Agua Amarga.
A 5 minute walk will take you to the beautiful 4 miles of Blue Flag beach where there is an excellent selection of shops and restaurants and 1 minutes walk will offer an array of supermarkets, shops, restaurants and bars right on your doorstep.
Golf lovers can revel at the fact the nearest golf course is a 5 minute drive and 3 other championship courses are all within 15 minutes drive, the infamous Desert Springs being one of them!!
