Area Overview

The mountain village of Mojácar, is located in the south eastern province of Almería in Andalusia, behind the Cabrera mountain range. The village has been the focal point of many writers and artists over the centuries that were attracted by the white-washed houses and cobbled streets that overlook several miles of sandy beach known as Mojácar Playa. This sandy beach resort offers activities such as sailing, fishing and a variety of watersports and is the modern counterpart to the more traditional Mojácar village, although the two areas are just 2km apart. Mojácar enjoys warm temperatures year round with very little rainfall.

Things To Do in Mojácar

  • Festivities of San Agustin: Mojácar fiestas in honour of its patron saint with evening celebrations, sports and a procession from the fountain to the church.
