Unlike the main tourist area of Mojacar, Garrucha gives you the real feel of the Andalusian way of life. Garrucha has a working fishing fleet & port, where fishing boats go out daily and the local restaurents still buy their fish. You feel that you are in Spain mixing with the locals, tasting fresh fish tapas along the port, shopping with the locals in the huge weekly markets, eating in traditional Spanish restaurants. This is an area where you will still get to practise your Spanish. However, should you wish to be amongst a more English crowd, Mojacar beach is just 5 mins drive away, so you have the best of both worlds. The hustle and bustle when you want it and the escape to the peace and quiet when you dont. There are many restaurants of every nationality thinkable, bars, snooker bar, live music restaurants. To work off some of that food, water sports facilities, paragliding, aquapark, karting, scuba diving, and tennis are all available in this lovely area. Mojacar Pueblo is a quaint Moorish village, with cobbled streets and white washed houses with spectacular views, this is about 15 mins drive away. About a 5 minute drive from the apartment is the Aquapark, brilliant for children of any age. For the cowboy buffs and about a 45 minute drive away is the Mini Hollywood Theme Park, a wild west town with live shows, cowboy museum, restaurants and a zoo with an array of animals. This is where A Fistful of Dollars was filmed along with other famous westerns. Close by at Vera Town is the Vera Bull Ring, this is a historical bull fighting ring, you can have a guided tour by an ex-matador, who revels in his description of this event. There are still bull fights held here today. Around 2 hours away after a picturesque ride, is the city of Granada where you can marvel at the world famous Alhambra Palace, and enjoy the Moorish city itself. The shopping here is fabulous especially if you like shoes! Skiing on the Sierra Nevada slopes is here too.
Garrucha now has several top quality golf courses nearby. Valle del Este, an 18-hole PGA golf course, has been carefully designed along the lines of the courses in the American desert of Arizona and California paying careful attention to every detail and integrating the course into the surrounding landscape to combine holes that represent a real challenge to the player. Undoubtedly this has been designed to play host to Championship events. The views are stunning but don’t let them affect your concentration as very few wayward shots are forgiven. It has its own beach club, restaurant, bar and pool, which is situated directly on the unspoilt Vera Beach. Desert Springs, the PGA overseas home, designed by successful Walker Cup captain, Peter McEvoy, is the only desert course in Europe, located between Villaricos and Cuaves de Almanzora. One is either on lush fairway or chipping back into position from the rugged desert terrain. Popular Marina Golf is 5 mins drive away.
The Fuentemar complex has 2 pools, one large and a smaller one for children. The villa is in quiet area of the complex with a south facing patio which overlooks a dry ramblas (riverbed). There is always loads of birdlife to watch and there are stunning mountain views in the distance. The roof terrace is ideal for sunbathing, bbqs or a perfect place to just sitback and relax with a glass of sangria.
