Mojácar Car Hire

Car hire is advisable in Mojácar, especially if you're staying in one of the hotels or apartment complexes away from the main seafront promenade. When you've exhausted the wealth of activities at your local beach you can venture inland to explore the Almerian "badlands" (Europe's only desert), tour the coastline or head for Granada and the Sierra Nevada mountain range.

With a rental car you'll be able to take a trip inland to visit the famous troglodyte villages where modern-day cave dwellers have burrowed their extraordinary homes out of the soft rock. You'll find cave houses in several villages in Almeria including Alhabia, Gador, Benahadux, Fondon and Laujar de Andarax.

Visit the wild west theme parks of Mini Hollywood and Texas Hollywood near the town of Tabernas, 60 kilometres south west of Mojacar. You'll be able to enjoy some cowboy style entertainment amid the remnants of the movie sets left behind by the makers of hundreds of spaghetti westerns.

Explore the rugged wilderness of the Cabo de Gata nature reserve at the south eastern tip of Spain.

Granada is less than two hours drive to the west of Mojacar and is well worth a day trip. Visit the fabulous Alhambra Palace, deservedly one of the top tourist attractions in the whole of Spain (don't go without booking tickets in advance in high season as visitor numbers are restricted).

Between Granada and the coast is the magnificent Sierra Nevada mountain range, home to Europe's most southerly ski resort. On its southern slopes you'll find the ancient mountain villages of the Alpujarras, one of the most stunningly beautiful regions of Spain. A day's touring here will take your breath away (strictly not for those with vertigo!)
