Welcome to Mojacar


Undoubtedly the most romantic and picturesque holiday beach resort town in south-eastern Spain, the white-washed houses and cobbled streets of Mojacar are sprinkled atop a hill overlooking pristine sandy beaches, washed by the warm Mediterranean. The unspoilt ancient Moorish fortress town of Mojacar has been a favourite with artists and writers for many years, and now attracts holidaymakers who fill up the hotels and villas which have proliferated along the nearby stretch of beach, fortunately not yet to the detriment of the town's appearance or beguiling atmosphere. The village centre is honeycombed with narrow casbah-like cobbled alleyways, which hide many quaint surprises, like a Roman fountain pumping fresh spring water and the unusual fortified church of Santa Maria. Mojacar is the picture-perfect location for a beach holiday in Spain.

Information & Facts


Along the beachfront are various operators offering horse riding, sailing, windsurfing, fishing and Scuba diving in the surrounding area. There are currently 11 excellent golf courses around Mojacar, three of which are championship quality. The old town of Mojacar Pueblo is well worth a visit for the old buildings and cobbled streets, while the waterpark in the nearby town of Vera is a fun family excursion.

Spanish is the official language, but English is widely understood in areas frequented by tourists. Catalan, Galician and Basque are spoken in the relevant areas.

Spain's official currency is the Euro (EUR). One Euro is divided into 100 cents. Money can be exchanged at bureaux de change and major hotels, but banks give the best rates. All major credit cards and travellers cheques are widely accepted at most hotels, restaurants, and shops. ATMs are widespread and are generally the cheapest and most convenient method of obtaining money.


This is a laid-back resort town with limited entertainment options for those wanting to spend their holiday in the town itself. The old town is accessible only by steep and narrow roads and is therefore unsuitable for people with mobility issues.


The area on the Mojacar Playa known as the Brit Strip has numerous pubs and British themed eateries. The best selection of Mojacar bars can be found along the sea front, which is lined with good beach bars, offering happy hours, free tapas and splendid beach views. The larger hotels have lively bars and are worth visiting on weekends for those seeking a big night out.


Mojacar's restaurants consist of a varied selection of international eatery which complement its excellent Spanish tapas bars and local seafood restaurants. Restaurante El Antler in Calle Enmedio has been getting great reviews for over 25 years. Children are always welcome in Mojacar restaurants. Famous local dishes include caldo de pescado(fish stew) and pelotas(meatballs wrapped in dark green cabbage leaves). Visit the nearby town of Garuccho for their locally-caught red shrimp.


The Commercial Centre is a large mall complex in the centre of town with every modern convenience. Adventurous and inquisitive tourists prepared to wander through the small alleyways of Mojacar will be richly rewarded. Many of the narrow streets have hidden treasures and for dedicated shoppers - small boutiques as well as a variety of holiday souvenir shops.
