Situated on the northern slope of the Filabres Mountain Range in the Almanzora Valley. The houses of this lovely Spanish town are built on the hillsides, the Moorish Castle of Serón offers impressive lines and breathtaking views of the town below. From the high slopes, you can see for miles around.
The area is steeped in history, many of the ramblas (dry riverbeds) having been old Roman trading routes. Serón is on the border of Almeria and Granada, close to the Roman city of Baza and surrounded by mountains, and is widely acclaimed for its Jamon (Spanish equivalent of Parma Ham), the area also offers excellent local produce.
At the nearby natural thermal spring – the Balsa de Cela – you can swim amongst the goldfish and view the mountains or simply sunbathe. There is a free life guard service during the summer so children can swim safely whilst you have a refreshing drink at one of the poolside bars.
Activities include biking and walking trails, rock climbing and abseiling, as well as off-road driving in one of the many ramblas.
There are two parts of Mojacar to discover, ‘Mojacar Pueblo’, the old town on the hill and ‘Mojacar Playa’, the coastal area.
Pueblo, is like a fairytale town with its cluster of cubed white buildings clinging to the side of the hilltop. The old town is a delight for visitors to explore, with trinket and gift shops, restaurants and bars. There are many art and craft shops as well as galleries. The gift shops sell anything from trendy clothing to locally made souvenirs such as hand woven rugs, asparto grass basket work and brightly coloured pottery. Look out for the local talisman, The Indalo Man; he appears on many gifts and jewellery. The Indalo Man is believed to have magical powers to ward off evil spirits.
Playa, with 17 kilometers of beach and is just two kilometres from Mojacar Pueblo. There are plenty of beaches to choose from. Park up your car, wander down, and enjoy the relaxed, natural, unspoilt beach of your choice. Along the length of the beach front you can enjoy a secluded spot, rent a sun bed for the day at one of the lively beachside bars ‘chirinquitos’, or hire a canoe, sailing boat or windsurf board from. With numerous bars and restaurants catering for those wishing to sample local traditional Spanish dishes or for those wanting something from elsewhere in the world…Chinese, Indian, British, French, Mexican, Argentinian, to name some. The Parque Comercial is a modern shopping centre at the bottom of the road coming down from The Pueblo. Here you will find a good range of shops, bars and restaurants, supermarket etc.
The Almerían town of Carboneras is a perfect tourist destination for nature lovers as it has a unique and spectacular environment. You can simply enjoy the spectacular views or practice open-air sports such as hiking or scuba diving. It is set within the Nature Reserve of Cabo de Gata-Níjar, one of the most arid protected areas in Europe and the only with a coast in the whole of Andalucía.
Carboneras is also chosen by those who simply want to enjoy a day of sun and beach. Among the many beaches is that of ´Los Muertos´, which is inside the fore mentioned natural park. You will find it hidden between mountains, with an extraordinarily straight shoreline. It´s not easy to get to and maybe due to this, it is frequently attended by nudists.
Garrucha offers a little light relief from the typical tourist attractions of the Costa Almeria, allowing the visitor to experience traditional Spanish life.
Situated in the Province of Almeria, Garrucha is a traditional Spanish fishing town, nestled between the beaches of Mojácar and Vera. A beautiful and lively town, it still retains much of its original charm. The area, as all of the Costa Almeria, enjoys an ideal climate throughout the year.
Two buildings of architectural interest in Garrucha are the Parish Church de San Joaquin and the Hermitage de la Virgen del Carmen, the Patron saint of Garrucha. Every year on the 16th of July the fishermen pass the chapel on their way to the sea in a spiritual procession.
One of the pleasures of a stay in Garrucha is taking an evening stroll around the bay, a palm tree lined promenade framed by white marble balustrades spans the length of the town, almost 2 Km. There are landscaped zones where you can sit and relax while watching the sunset over the Mediterranean sea and there are some great play areas for children. The route takes in the three successive ports of Garrucha – the recreational port, fishing port and commercial port.
A combination of exquisite seafood dining, beautiful golden sand beaches and the daily life of a fishing and seaport town make Garrucha a charming place to visit.
