Mojacar Playa in Almeria Spain is the modern beach resort of Mojacar Pueblo, located two kilometres from the old hilltop town. It's long uncrowded sandy beaches are amongst its main attractions.
The beaches are 17 km long, with a large part being designated an area of natural beauty. Only 7 km have been developed and they consistently earn European Blue Flag awards for cleanliness.
The beach resort has been developed over the past two decades, it is now a lively resort with much to offer with beach bars, local and international restaurants, discos, hotels and shops. The resort enforces a building restriction to prevent it becoming a high rise concrete development; residential buildings are restricted to two storeys and hotels can't be built higher than four floors.
For those looking for an active holiday there is much to do. There is a full range of watersports including jet ski-ing, canoeing, water ski-ing, sailing, windsurfing and scuba diving. If you have a head for heights why not take a flight in a microlight over the beach at the Indalo Wings Microlight Centre or try your hand at paragliding. When you have done all this there is still hiking, rock climbing, biking or horse riding.
There is an 18 hole golf course at Marina de la Torre that offers spectacular views of the coast, whilst enjoying a challenging round of golf.
For a spot of retail therapy try the Parque Comercial, a modern shopping precinct at the intersection of the sea front and the road to Mojacar Pueblo.
There is a local bus service that runs regularly between the beach and the Mojacar Pueblo.
