Mojácar

One of the most beautiful villages in Spain

The village

The beauty of the image of Mojácar, a majestic melting pot of a cluster of white houses, clinging to the very end of the Sierra de Cabrera foothills.

Then, once we enter the maze of narrow and beautiful streets, every corner captivates us and shows us both the privacy of the past.

Nature

One of the best ways to get know Mojácar is to go up into its sierras and hills via tracks and paths.

From this paths there are views which stay imprinted on the eye due to the special light, the contrast of the hundreds of shades of the blue of the sky and the sea.

Festival and tradition

Mojácar, quiet and calm, becomes very lively during its festivals, in which are evident its past, its culture and the art of its people.

Of special note are Carnival, St. Augustine and Moors and Christians, the latter a very beautiful and colourful re-enactment of historical events.

Mediterranean Beaches

Seventeen kilometres of coastline make Mojácar an ideal place to enjoy its beaches.

Many of them have been awarded the FEE Blue Flag for quality. Practicing water sports and relaxing in protected coves are possibilities which the municipality offers.
