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

Located on the sunny shores of the Costa de Almeria in Spain, Vera Playa lies on over 4km of beautiful, wild sandy beach on the Mediterranean. A section of the beach is dedicated to naturists, leading many to cite Vera Playa as Europe’s best naturist resort.

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.

There are some fantastic towns to explore from a self catering Vera Playa apartment or villa. Granada and Mojacar are the main towns in the region, both of which are well worth investigating if you can drag yourself from Vera Playa beach for a few hours. Mojacar is famous world wide as the archetypal Andalucian whitewashed village, pictured on the front of many Spanish travel guides, and attracting many visitors every year.

Weather in Vera Playa, Spain

The weather in Vera Playa is excellent. You can happily swim in the sea all year round, as even in the depths of winter, sea temperatures are in the high teens (˚C), and air-temperatures are almost always above 10˚C. In the summer, temperatures can reach over 40˚C in July and August, with the warmth lasting long into the evening, allowing you to eat your evening meals outside, watching the sun set over the amazing landscape of the Costa de Almeria.

This villa was well maintained and clean on arrival. It was a well kept complex with gardens and communal pools. The property was very private, well looked after with everything available to make us feel at home, including WiFi. It had a nice patio area in the garden with an attractive pool. This pool was cleaned regularly during our 6 week stay. We had driven from the UK, therefore it was nice to have a secure parking area in the driveway adjacent to the property enclosed by double gates. The property was near to beaches, restaurants, bars and supermarkets. To explore the area it is advisable to have access to a car. There are several very nice restaurants in Mojacar, one in particular was the Bella Vista on the road opposite the beach. Also, once again in Mojacar there is a very nice Indian Restaurant called the New Indian Curry House. If you like Indian it is certainly worth a try. Not so attractive from the outside, but staff are very helpful and food is excellent. Good restaurants and small but interesting shops in Garrucha too. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and did some very enjoyable walks along the coastal paths etc., Certainly will be telling our family and friends of this lovely villa. The owners were in contact with us via email on arrival which was a very nice gesture. Thank you. We have many fond memories of this holiday and look forward to a further visit soon to this lovely villa! Well Done ! Jackie & Henk Vonk
