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.

As fantastic as it is in the pics, it’s even better when you walk through the door and take everything in. Every single touch is brilliant. We have just had the most amazingly perfect break for our PP’s 50th. - 8 of us ranging in ages, all girls - all just wanting to relax, have fun, eat and drink well and just have a fab time. Kokomo was perfect for our needs. I feel like we benefited from the maturity of this labour of love. Clearly Eddie has added things every year to make this into the perfect villa. He even has plans for next year and I can’t wait to see it. The outside area just has no end of great spots to sit, sunbathe, cool down, swim and of course cook, pour a pint, have any number of drinks, BBQ gorgeous healthy food and all sit round the table together. Inside worked so well for our group dynamic, and it could have taken a few more. The furniture was so comfy, there were enough bathrooms for us all (quite an achievement for all women!) And the kitchen was so well stocked ... we would giggle when we needed something unusual for cooking or serving that, ‘ooh, we may have found the one thing that Eddie hasn’t yet thought of for this villa’ and then laugh and ‘whoop woop’ in celebration as we found it - we would always be wrong! We were on a short break and didn’t want to go out much, so didn’t hire a car. Eddie and Ray were so patient with us, helping all get all the supplies we needed for fabulous food and drink (and mosquito/insect spray). There wasn’t all that much to do locally without a car, unless you wanted to participate in the local ‘nuddie’ scene. We didn’t, but the odd naked person, or couple, wandering past did make for an unexpected extra element of entertainment! (Eddie said it was easy enough to get it stopped, as the beach in front of the villa is not a nudist beach, but we did really find it funny). We never got bored. Thanks to you guys, and to all the girls I was with for making this is the most amazing girly break we could ask for, and for ensuring our lovely friend PP had the best birthday possible!

The garden was amazing you couldn't ask for more. The only small issue we had was the TV wasn't working correctly and we couldn't get any English channels but this was no big deal. The on site restaurant was a bit disappointing as the staff didn't seem intrested and the menu was lacking. You need a car to get around and if you like dinning out like we do the restaurants are very few and far between. The beaches in Mojacar were lovely and there were a lot more choice of restaurants but it would take about a 15-20 minute drive, which you wouldn't want to do every evening. Overall though you couldn't fault the villa and Owen was very helpful.

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!
