About the neighborhood
Mojacar beaches themselves are beautiful and relatively undeveloped with no high rise buildings and plenty of chiringuitos and restaurants to choose from as well as a liely nightlife with dancing until the early hours. Mojacar Pueblo is a whitewashed Moorish town set on a hillside with cobbled streets, artisan shops and wonderful views. There is go-karting, riding, sailing and plenty of activity. Also nearby is Garrucha, a fishing town and port, also with great beaches and a lively nightlife.
