Mojacar – South Coast of Spain
Mojacar is one of Spain’s quieter resorts located on the south coast, and its popularity rests with the families and couples opposed to tourists looking for a late nights and a party atmosphere.
There is a good selection of smaller and large beaches around the resort for tourists to enjoy, this variety means that if the larger beaches do get crowded there are other places to go for peace and quiet. The large beach on offer has been awarded the European Blue Flag for cleanliness which is an added bonus for those who spend plenty of time on the beach.
The transfer from Almeria Airport is around about 50 minutes long, and during this time it is worth taking in the great scenery that the south of Spain is blessed with. There is plenty of accommodation to be found in Mojacar such as hotels and apartments all of which range from 1 to 4 stars. You can expect to find places offering great services and facilities from self catering to all inclusive.
There is a very good public transport service that will take you to nearby coastal resorts including Almeria so you can further your exploration on holiday. Taxis are also available but will of course be a little more expensive than taking the bus.
