Airport accessibility: There are three airports all within easy reach of Mojacar. Almeria is the closest, just a 45 mins drive away,Murcia, using the new toll road, around 1 and a half hours and Alicante which is around 2 hrs.
Golf: There are now several golf courses in and around Mojacar giving you plenty of scope for a round or two during your stay. Firstly, situated on the hillside overlooking Mojacar bay and virtually on the doorstep, is the 18 hole par 72 Marina Golf.Here you will find a restaurant, bar, shop, buggy rental and professional instruction. Next, between Vera and Los Gallardos, is the 18 hole par 71 Valle del Este course. Designed by José Canales, it combines holes that represent a real challenge to the player with others that are maybe a little less taxing.The amenities include restaurant, bar, shop, buggy hire, swimming pool and professional instruction. Then, located between Villaricos and Cuaves de Almanzora is the 18 hole par 72 Desert Springs designed by Peter McEvoy. It is the first desert course in Europe, and has been built to the full USGA specifications and quality standards of the now famous desert courses of Arizona and California. As you would expect, full facilities are provided.
Fiestas: The one not to miss is Los Moros y Cristianos (the Moors and Christians festival). It is usually held during the weekend closest to June 10. It commemorates the heroic epics that led to cultural and religious exchanges between Arabs and Christians. All the locals are involved in it's organization.They begin on Friday with the opening of the medieval market and partying til dawn in the village squares.Festooned wih flags and banners the streets take on a carnival atmosphere from the start. The Christian landings and the Moors attempts to repel them are re-enacted on the beach on Saturday. A medieval jousting tournament and a riding skills display are just some of the highlights.
As a grand finale on Sunday evening there is a grand parade on the village streets. Each year the proud Moors and Christians, brothers in their costumes, parade from the top of Mojacar Pueblo to the source of the city ... where they disappear to avoid being seen for twelve months.
