Vera Costa rubs shoulders with the Costa Calida, so it’s no surprise it shares the warm coast’s famously hot climate. In these parts, things are really relaxed so you can easily spend your days basking in the radiant Mediterranean glow until it’s time for tapas in the evening.
This resort’s blessed with scenic beaches that roll on for a sandy 8km. Don’t miss Las Marinas, where you can sink your toes into sands skirting a lush lagoon, home to a host of birdlife. A seafront cycle path makes taking in the vistas a breeze.
Head inland and you’ll stumble across the traditional old village of Vera. Cobbled streets, quaint churches and lamppost-lined squares create a real Spanish feel in this medieval walled town. Back along the coast, try the famous red prawns at Garrucha’s attractive marina or walk to the hilltop haven of Mojacar.
