The Costa de Almeria region
The location offers great weather all year round with unrivalled hours of sunshine, and is one of the warmest regions of south eastern Spain.
Spaghetti Westerns - If you enjoyed watching Clint Eastwood in "THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY, FISTFUL OF DOLLARS", and "A FEW DOLLARS MORE", famous for the filming of the "Spaghetti Westerns", you must go and see Europe's only official dessert including the area of Tabernas, where you will find an authentic western cowboy town with appropriate re-enhancements of bank raids and gunfights, can-can shows, also there is very good wildlife park, a great place to go with kids to have a good day out, well worth a visit.
Garrucha - The beaches and harbours of Garrucha are within easy reach and are about ten minutes away with seafront fish restaurants displaying and serving the local catch of the day. Sea fishing from the marina is a favourite pastime of the Spanish people in the area with some great fish being caught all year round. This is a very popular area with miles of sandy beaches stretching along the coastline.
Mojacar - Mojacar is split between the hilltop village Mojacar Pueblo, and the beach-front Mojacar Playa. The Pueblo is perched on a rocky outcrop and can be seen from a long distance as the houses are painted a brilliant white. The village has narrow, windy streets, but is a joy to walk. The Playa winds along the coast for over 5 km with beautiful blue flag beaches and bars and restaurants to suit all tastes. Horse riding, quadbiking, and kiteboarding are just some of the many activities you will find here.
Villaricos - Travelling north from Vera brings you to the small port of Villaricos. For those who prefer the quiet coves and beaches of an undeveloped coastline, this is the place for you.
Turre -This small town is off the tourist track and has a refreshing 'Spanishness'. As with most towns there are a collection of good value tapas bars. The local Go-Kart circuit is on the road to Turre and offers very good value compared to UK tracks.
Almeria - Although it is 45 to 50 minutes drive away, Almeria does have some splendid Moorish architecture and an interesting and more modern Cathedral. The dominant feature of the town is the Alcazaba fortress, built in the 10th Century by the Moors. Visiting the Alcazaba is free to EU passport holders between October and March.
Granada - Granada has one of the most dramatic locations in Spain, poised below the backdrop of the snowcapped peaks of the Sierra Nevada. The city's most striking feature is the near-perfect and beautiful Al'hambra Palace. Granada has even more charms other than the Palace and is well worth the trip. A very pleasant and picturesque 2 hour drive away.
South of the resort lies the "Gabo de Gate- Nijar", a beautiful National park with dramatic volcanic scenery and an unspoilt coastline full of hidden coves and beaches.
Vera - The town of Vera has a long history. It was, for a while, the border between Christian and Moorish Spain. The town is packed with traditional shops and restaurants and discovering them down the narrow streets is one of the town's delights. The town has many fiestas, including a February carnival. Vera boasts the second oldest bullring in the Country which has been restored to its former glory and plays an active role within the community. Next to the bull ring lies the local football stadium where a good standard of football is played, there is also a new football stadium at Garrucha.
