Make a holiday rental property or golf apartment in Roquetas de Mar, Spain your home away from home

The old fishing village of Roquetas de Mar has been transformed from a sleepy fishing village with Roman origins to a vibrant coastal resort on the Costa de Almeria, Spain. Roquetas de Mar is a tight network of narrow, twisting Moorish streets, filled to bursting point with excellent bars, fashionable shops and fine rental properties. Despite its popularity, there is always plenty of space to relax on the beach, walk the streets or go for a leisurely swim, unlike in many of Spain’s popular tourist beach resorts.

Things to do on holiday in Roquetas de Mar, Spain

The ancient buildings of Roquetas de Mar, Spain, give the whole town a fantastically timeless, relaxing atmosphere, as the whitewashed masterpieces of the Castilla de Santa, the beautiful Church of la Virgen del Rosario and the 16th century fortifications do not look out of place for a second, instead perfectly complimenting the more modern, whitewashed villas and apartments which make up the town. There are some fantastic restaurants and bars to enjoy too, with Roquetas de Mar’s Highlander Bar being one of the most celebrated bars in the whole of the Costa Tropical.

Of course, the beaches of Roquetas de Mar are a huge draw to those renting apartments in Roquetas de Mar. Stretching far into the horizon, the golden sands synonymous with holidays to Roquetas de Mar are wonderfully soft, safe and scenic, and very few people look to any of the other beaches in the area upon their arrival in the town. Sailing and windsurfing are two of the most popular water sports to enjoy from a Roquetas de Mar rental property, and there are plenty of options to both rent equipment and get lessons, and the ‘Sail & Surf Roquetas’ water sports centre is a great place to start any water sports holiday in Roquetas de Mar.

Bird watchers and nature lovers will be blissfully happy living in a Roquetas de Mar rental property. The Las Marinas salt marshes, just 5km from a apartment in Roquetas de Mar, and the Punto Sabinas are havens for birdlife, from flamingos to crested larks, great grey shrike to egrits. Whether you explore the region on foot, by bicycle or on horseback, you will undoubtedly fall for the charms of the local countryside, lush, quiet and rich in diversity.

Due to the quality of the three 18 hole golf courses in the area, there are plenty of golf apartments in Roquetas de Mar for rent. The Playa Serena Golf course is probably the finest in the area, offering a stunning 18 holes, right in the outskirts of the town, although the Le Envia and Almerimar courses are also particularly worth investigating from a golf apartment in Roquetas de Mar, especially the latter if you want a good chance of seeing local wildlife.

Places to visit on holiday in Roquetas de Mar, Spain

The other major resort on the Costa de Almeria is Mojacar, a hugely popular resort which stands on a 17km golden sand beach. Every beach sport, water sport and leisure activity is possible from Mojacar Playa, and every type of restaurant, bar and club can be found nestling in the tight, twisting Moorish streets. However, if you are looking for strong, authentic Spanish culture, you are far better to head into the countryside, taking in the smaller villages and rural towns rather than those resorts along the coastline.

Weather in Roquetas de Mar, Spain

It doesn’t matter at what time of year you decide to rent an apartment in Roquetas de Mar, the weather is almost guaranteed to be fine. During the long, hot and dry summer months, temperatures soar into the high 30’s (°C) during the days between June and September, whilst even during the winter months, you are unlikely to encounter daily temperatures below 15°C.

The apartment is in the perfect location, with sea views from the balcony and roof terrace. (Both being a sun-trap so ideal for those who enjoy basking in the sun) The accommodation is not only spacious but immaculately presented throughout offering everything you need for a self catering holiday. Situated in a very quiet area yet close to all bars, restaurants and supermarket, we found it perfect for our family of four. The busier side of the resort is within walking distance and because the promenade is so flat, this is an easy and enjoyable walk out. If you turn right along the promenade, it will lead you to Avenue Mediterraneo , which has a variety of shops, bars and restaurants. There are plenty of beach bars along the way so if it's hot, you can stop and grab a drink. (This takes approximately 15 minutes to walk) If you come out of the apartment and turn left onto the promenade, you will reach the Castle (approx 10-15 mins) where there is a small amusement park for young children and a number of cafe bars/restaurants. Continue walking and you will reach the town of Playa de la Romanilla. Here, there are lots of bars, restaurants and shops. This is quite a long walk (approx 10k there and back) so if you do struggle with mobility, there is a public bus that can take you there and back. This can be caught from the main road near the apartment block. Alternatively, you can hire bikes for the day and make use of the designated cycle lanes that run the full length of the promenade. As we were out of season, the beach sports were not yet operating but I believe they will be open in May so we will look forward to this next time we visit. The apartment block has a private pool which is open from June to September. As it wasn't too hot when we visited, we were fine with this not being open and spent our days at the beach instead. The beach is absolutely beautiful and stretches for miles. It was always immaculate as it is cleaned early every morning. There are numerous play areas on the beach which are perfect for young children. I would highly recommend this holiday apartment if you want a quiet and relaxing holiday away from the hustle and bustle of the stereotypical Spanish resorts. We will definitely be returning later in the year. Thank you Steve and Carla, your apartment is fantastic!
