Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Garrucha, Spain your home away from home

Garrucha is a fantastic place to be. One of the few remaining fishing towns that have not lost their character to mass tourism on the Costa de Almeria, Spain, Garrucha has gained a reputation as being the ‘sun and seafood’ capital of Andalucia, with only the freshest fish being served, caught straight off the shores of the town.

Things to do in Garrucha, Spain

As a famous fishing port, there are a huge number of opportunities to head out into the Mediterranean to catch a record fish, but it is the beaches in Garrucha that really capture the imagination. The palm lined bay is lined by wonderfully soft sands, perfect for a host of sports, or simply relaxing on, soaking in the Mediterranean sunshine.

The glorious sandy beaches in Garrucha stretch as far as the eye can see, and this is the only town beach that has been awarded the European Blue Flag for cleanliness and safety. There is a 2km promenade filled with Garrucha jet ski and boat hire centres, cafes and little shops selling all the equipment needed for a full day of fun on the beaches in Garrucha. Snorkelling in Garrucha is particularly good fun due to the wealth of marine life and clear waters of the Mediterranean. If you would like to try scuba diving, there are some fantastic Garrucha snorkelling and scuba diving centres to choose from too, catering for all levels of ability and experience.

The restaurants in Garrucha are absolutely magnificent, famous throughout the region, and very proud of their wares. The seafood restaurants are particularly special, serving the freshest red prawns you will be able to find anywhere in Europe. The irresistible smell of cooked fish spills out over the beaches in Garrucha during the evenings, which is almost impossible to ignore! If you would like to try your hand at cooking Mediterranean seafood, the daily fish market in the evening is the only place to start.

There are three fantastic championship golf courses to choose from whilst staying in a self catering Garrucha holiday rental, all of which are within 10km of the town centre. The Marina de la Torre Golf course is just 2km away, offering 18 holes of testing golf to anyone who can provide a handicap certificate.

If you are lucky enough to be able to rent a holiday rental in Garrucha during the second week of August, the Garrucha Festival will make your holiday an absolute delight. Each night is a festival of music, dancing and food.

Wonderful Villa near all amenities

5 of 5
This is a wonderful villa with loads of space, it is clean and has everything you need for a wonderful holiday. There is a lovely pool and great outside space, including a roof top solarium with wonderful views. The beach is a short stroll and bars and restaurants located nearby. We are booked to go back next year it was a wonderful stay and our week just flew by. I highly recommend the villa and the location, it is 10/10

Perfect

5 of 5
My girlfriend and I loved our stay at this very well equipped and homely apartment, it was a perfect place to relax after a busy day exploring the area. It easily has enough space for another two couples or even a large family. We were very well welcomed by Bianka who met us (quite late at night) and showed us around the apartment, and was on hand should we need her for anything . I have stayed in the area several times and can honestly say that this location is the right mix of privacy and centrality with very easy access to Mojácar, Garrucha, and a host of mini villages and coastal spots nearby. You can walk to the very big and clean beach in 10 minutes. There are a few restaurants and bars dotted along the front too. We rented a car as we did lots of exploring, but there were many of buses and taxis available, and quite a few people cycled along the beach paths/ roads. Christine has a folder which is packed with all the local information you need to know. However, if you want to explore a bit further afield, we easily travelled to the Sorbas caves, Tabernas (Oro del Desierto, Olive Oil), San Jose and other beaches, and went to see the flamingos down near Almeria. Níjar is a good shopping spot for rugs and ceramics. The roads are so quiet and easy to drive on too! (You can rent a car in Mojácar as I have done before). There are lots of nice places to eat locally, a Lidl just up the road too, and there is even a couple of take-away options too! (Dragon 2). The pool area was really relaxing, clean and just outside the apartment. The two patio areas are great and well equipped. One tip would be to learn a couple of basic phrases as there is a mix of English and Spanish residents and restaurant, bar owners. We will definitely come back here in the future!

Amazing beach front villa

5 of 5
This villa is really as fabulous as the pictures suggest. As a family of 8 including grandparents and young children there was something for everyone and we all loved our week here. The bar by the pool is great fun and the games room and movie room had a lot of use and were a perfect distraction for the kids in the hottest part of the day. The master bedroom with huge balcony overlooking the pool and beach beyond was fantastic and a perfect extra space to retreat to for a quiet read while the others were by the pool/on the beach. The pool is heated to over 30 degrees and lovely. It was also fabulous being able to sit on one of the hanging loungers on the back deck and keep an eye on the kids a few meters away playing on the beach. We all loved Kokomo and are already booked to return next year.
