FAMILY DAY TRIPS!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!: O.K so its time for a day trip you have all spent enough time in the markets and sunning yourselves so where to go ?. The 1st place I recommend is Fort Bravo its about an hour away but very easy to find as its marked on nearly all maps and is quite famous as this has been the location for a lot of spaghetti westerns. Dress up for the day in old cowboy / girl outfits and have a blast get the photos taken and ride in the stage coaches or on horses.Watch the show that is acted out twice daily and have a great time especially exciting for the kids .
2nd place is Oasis theme park and zoo , its just 10 minutes past Fort Bravo and has its own western town including boot hill there is also a show twice daily along with other attractions . When you finish there go to the zoo which is very extensive and covers a huge area.You should be able to find both on the internet to check out opening times and prices. If you have never been to these parks before i highly recommend you try one or the other.
3rd place would be the Aqua Park with all the water slides etc.
THE LOCAL AREA : There are to many towns and villages to mention all but the property itself is located between the small commercial town of Vera and the fishing village of Garrucha both of which are no more then 5 minutes away. Both towns offer the usual bars ,restaurants and shopping.One of the nicest places to visit for shopping or food is the town of Mojacar it is situated high up overlooking the entire area with a panoramic view of about 6 to 7 miles in all directions and a nighttime visit is especially breathtaking.Other villages within 15 minutes drive include Bedar, Palomeras, Villicricos and Carboneras all of which have something to offer the curious tourist so take your pick.NOW WHAT ABOUT THE BEACH?? Well its quite simple you can either walk for 15 minutes or drive for 5 to get to it. When your on it you have about 6 to 7 kilometers to choose from ..Finally some areas are NATURIST areas i.e.FULLY NUDE i point this out for those of you who will be bringing children along
LA PAPERINA RESTAURANT: A new restaurant and bar has opened just 5 minutes walk from our property which offers a mix of English and Spanish foods .Opening hours are approx 10am to 12 pm all week long . Sky t.v. is available to keep up to date with all your favorite soaps and football matches . Indoor and outdoor dining is catered for as you would expect when travelling to spain ,Those dining outside can enjoy a beautiful backdrop of a swimming pool with small waterfall which is lit up at night time perfect for those romantic evening meals .The restaurant is closed in January and February which is normal in off peak seasons.There will also be live music on certain nights of the week which will add to a great night out.
If the driver is not taking the night off there are numerous bars and restaurants within 5-10 minutes drive Chinese, Spanish, Italian, Indian, and English to name but a few.
