Things to do on holiday to Vera Playa, Spain

The beach is beautiful, and due to its position, water conditions can be extremely variable. One day may see unbelievably still sea conditions with the next seeing large rollers crashing into the beach making swimming and bathing dangerous for children. However, one thing is always assured, sunbathing is a treat. There are life guard stations all along the beach and sea temperatures are wonderfully warm in summer, reaching well over 20˚C in August. If you swim in the sea during the British summer, you will be able to handle the sea temperatures in Vera Playa at any time of year with ease. Of the 4km of beach, the northern 2km is designated naturist beach.

Around the town are a range of excellent entertainment opportunities. Mini-Hollywood is a huge asset, consisting of two separate stage towns used in spaghetti westerns for many years. You too can be a cowboy rushing the sets of films as notable as The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, Indiana Jones and Lawrence of Arabia. There is also a good zoo around Mini-Hollywood too. The colourful street markets of Vera Playa are hugely entertaining and you can pick up some wonderful bargains to be found.

The water sports facilities are excellent in Vera Playa, where you can go sailing, windsurfing and surfing when conditions are right. Canoeing, scuba diving and snorkelling are particularly popular a few miles down the coast in the world famous Cabo de Gata National Park. The beaches are spectacular, the landscape wild and the coastline hugely rich in marine life, the Cabo de Gata is a hugely popular place to experience the peace, tranquillity and nature of real Spain.

She is so positive, and informative about the area, getting there etc. She has an amazing folder set up at the apartment with tips & recommendations, and a comment book that makes really interesting reading! The variety of things to do in the area is huge. However as sun-starved Irish we mainly craved the pool and beaches! Karen has everything ready made for a beach trip with seats, mats, umbrellas, beach towels etc. It was fab to just load up the car and go. Our favourite beach by a long shot was St Juan de la Torreos .We had some memorable meals in the region, best meal at night was at Bellavista, in Mojacar. Great food, unbelievable value, lovely owners who speak great english. The pool was a big draw too, with none of the usual vying for seats, as one has to bring chairs from the apartment themselves! Ingenious. Pool and adjoining area spotless. Met lovely people there too, a good mix of nationalities. Al Andalus Hills is a tastefully designed complex, where privacy is assured, the gardeners are working from morning til night to keep the area pristine! If I had to make a suggestion it would be to request the Spanish children and teenagers on site who congregate behind the apartment to hang out (all perfectly acceptable) to limit it to midnight perhaps...if I had sufficient spanish I would have spoken to them myself. However it was high summer and we took it on the chin, there was no rowdiness,just teenage banter. Do yourself a favour and book Karen's apartment, its so well thought out, the en suite and separate bathroom with bath are ideal. We spent lots of time relaxing and eating on the balcony, the terrain is so different to home! The mini market is a short walk from the complex, with a bar and restaurant serving good food, made to order, by friendly staff. This place buzzed from morning until evening! Enjoy!

The private pool is so inviting and welcome on hot summer days. The villa is well equipped, very clean and can accommodate both families or couples. The outside eating area and gas BBQ is perfect for warm evenings and the hot tub great for relaxing. A large supermarket is nearby with a tapas bar and restaurant on the complex. A few minutes drive takes you to the heart of Spain, villages and small towns full of character as well as uncrowded beaches safe for swimming - with the obligatory beach cafe bars. A few more minutes takes you to busier tourist resorts with a mix of European visitors. Highly recommended for a lovely villa holiday!
