Mojacar is a charming jumble of whitewashed, sugar-cube houses, perched on a hilltop and overlooking a golden-sanded beach. The village itself is an atmospheric labyrinth of twisting, cobbled streets and Moorish architecture, housing hidden cafés and quirky shops. Holidays to Mojacar are ideal if you want a slice of Spanish charm and a beautiful beach on which to soak up some sun. Although the resort is believed to be the birthplace of Mickey Mouse creator, Walt Disney, you won’t find any theme parks in the village: holidays here are low-key, designed to help you leave all the stresses and strains of life behind you. With superb, rustic restaurants and traditional tavernas serving local cuisine and some stunning countryside to explore, you can make your holidays just what you want them to be.
Things to do
An ideal spot for families and couples who want to take things easy, Mojocar offers a wealth of things to see and do. If you can tear yourself from the sun-kissed beach, you can explore the incredible countryside by bike, or even ride a horse along the coast. The old town is the perfect place to take a wander or grab a leisurely lunch in one of the bustling squares. By night, enjoy a cool drink in a taverna and watch the sun set.
If you want to make the most of the sunbathing weather, book your Mojacar holidays between June and August, when the temperature nudges all the way up into the low thirties.
Approximately two and a half hours
Flights land at Almeria Airport, which is around 80km from the coast.
