Mojácar (pronounced “mo-hacker”)  is a town in the Almeria province of Andalucia southern Spain. Dating as far back as the Bronze age.  The old town (Mojacar Pueblo) with its whitewashed buildings can be seen from many miles distant sitting precariously atop a mountain commanding the Valley below and the Mediterranean Sea beyond. Occupied by the Phoenecians, Cartheginians, the Greeks and finally the Moors, who gave it its name (derived from the Moorish Muxacra) the town finally surrendered to Catholic forces in 1488 and there is a central fountain in the square and an annual fiesta to commemorate this event.

Mojacar Playa (Mojacar beach) is a low-rise beach resort which sits below the old town on the shores of the Mediterranean and adjacent to the Cabo de Gata national park with its breath-taking mountain scenery, hidden villages, coves and beaches.

This part of Spain is a desert region of Volcanic and Karst Limestone.  As you might expect the climate is hot and dry with summer averages of 25°C and often over 30°C. But the resort is seldom oppressive kept cool by the sea breezes. The coldest months are January and February with an average of 12°C. But even then it is often warm enough to sit outside and soak up some winter sun. The wettest month is November with an average of 31mm of rain. For a full weather by month run down visit

The climate also makes this part of Spain a major fruit and vegetable growing region and the mosaic of poly-greenhouses around province capital , Almeria town seen when you first land at the airport, might not look very attractive but financially they are a very important Spanish export. Anyway they are soon left behind when you head away into the hills on your way down the Autovia towards Mojacar and even blessed when you sample the local Mediterranean food!

The main tourist season in Mojacar starts at the beginning of May and runs through until the end of October but the sea temperature remains warm well into November. It is not unusual to be able to sunbathe, eat outside and swim at Christmas.  My favourite months are Late May and June then September and October when it is not too hot. But I do know lots of sun lovers who happily soak up the often 30 plus degrees in July and August.

Though Spanish is the primary language, there is a considerable ex pat community in Mojacar and the English language is widely spoken and understood in most shops and restaurants.
