-Beaches. The coast here is lovely, and quite unlike the popular image of the Costa del Sol. Most beaches are long and surrounded by nature, such as the six-kilometre expanse of sand at Garrucha. Other resorts like Mojácar, Villaricos and Puerto Rey remain stay relatively quiet, even in peak summer months.
-Golf. There are five courses to try out during your holiday in in Sierra Cabrera. One of the closest is Cortijo Grande, which boasts nine holes in an attractive mountain setting. Towards the coast meanwhile is Marina Golf, Mojácar, which offers 18 holes and full practice facilities, as well as lovely views of the sea.
-Visitor attractions. A great day out for kids can be had at the Vera Water Park in Mojácar, which features seven different slides and a number of pools. Meanwhile movie fans will be pleased to know that all of the Spaghetti Westerns were shot in the Sierra Cabrera area - Fort Bravo is a Mecca for fans of the genre.
-Natural scenery. Just in from the coast are some dramatic and rugged landscapes. A great place to experience them would be the Cabo de Gata Natural Park, with its mountains, towering cliffs, rocky outcrops and caves by the seafront. A little closer, just outside the village of Turre you’ll encounter a spectacular karst topography.
-Food and drink. Andalucia is know for its simple cuisine based on high-quality ingredients. Tapas is especially famous, and a speciality well worth trying in the Mojácar area is Pescado Frito – which is a platter of small, fried seafood, including squid, baby octopus and dogfish.
