Mojacar is a picturesque Mediterranean town that captivates everyone who visits it with its postcard image, a panoramic view that, year after year never fails to be included in the list of the most beautiful towns in Spain. Located at the foot of the Sierra de Cabrera, the essence of Andalusia bathes every corner and is evident in the incomparable beauty of its white houses marked with the indalo, symbol of Almería, its people of open and hospitable character, its narrow streets dotted with blue flowerpots and the viewpoints that open up to spectacular views looking out to sea.
Its surroundings still preserve the temple of that Mediterranean of yesteryear with coves, beaches and mountain spots still to be discovered.
What makes Mojacar so special?
There are many reasons to think about Mojacar to spend your holidays, and it is that the mild Mediterranean climate throughout the year allows you to enjoy its beaches even in winter. So much so, that in recent years a curious tradition of the area is becoming popular, for which New Year's Day begins with a bath in the sea.
Mojacar offers 17 km of coastline with some of the best beaches in the Mediterranean, many of them awarded with the blue flag. The great variety of them allows you to choose between those that have all the services such as the Playa de la Marina de la Torre with the popular and lively Chiringuito (beach bar) Cala Marina, or the most remote and inaccessible, where you can enjoy the sea in the middle of nature like the spectacular Cala de la Granatilla.
From the sea you will want to discover the town that impresses from a distance, its whitewashed houses seem to be perched on top of each other in order to save the base of the Sierra de Cabrera. You will want to get lost in its historic centre, which is a heritage of the cultures that inhabited the area in the past and which, due to its intricate streets, resembles a labyrinth. In the most unsuspected corners, you will find the most intimate beauty where thousands of flowers decorate the facades stand out between the white of the walls and the blue of the sky.
Mojácar, quiet and calm, becomes bustling during its fiestas, when its glorious past is reborn through the culture and art of its people. It is, without a doubt, a lively and fun destination with endless options to enjoy a holiday, or short break, at any time of the year.
But these are just some of the most recommended activities, the coast of Almería offers many nearby natural places to discover such as Cabo de Gata with the famous Playa de los Muertos or the Tabernas Desert. Without a doubt, a great choice for your holidays with family or friends.
