Mojacar has two distinct areas. Mojacar Pueblo is a picture book, whitewashed hill-top village nestled into the hillside overlooking the beautiful white sandy beaches of Mojacar Playa.
This delightful, Andalucian “Pueblo Blanco" with its jumble of narrow, cobbled streets and traditional white washed terraced houses, attracts and delights visitors all year-round. The village's maze of charming, cobbled, alleyways are lined with an abundance of arts & crafts shops, gift stores and classy boutiques. At its centre is Mojacar's beautiful church as well as a number of open, tree encircled plazas where you can take your pick from a great choice of open air restaurants and café bars, some of which offer truly breath-taking views of the surrounding mountains and out to the sparkling blue Mediterranean sea.
In the mid 20th century there was an increase in interest in this historic and picturesque village and due to growing numbers of visitors to the area construction started on many new residential developments and hotels alongside the beaches. Thus the resort of Mojacar Playa was born.
This beautifully clean and polished beach resort famous for its trendy beach clubs and beach-side restaurants has always been a firm favourite for Spanish tourists. It is now fast becoming a popular destination for both British and Northern European visitors many of which now also call Mojacar home.
