The Essence of Playa Marqués
Stretching away as far, as the eye can see, a vast surreal expanse of fine sandy beach, washed by the exceptionally clean, clear local waters of the Mediterranean. This is El Playazo, the grand beach of the Almanzora, that stretches a total of 7 Km. down from the mouth of the Rio Almanzora, and Boca del Rio Beach in Villaricos, as far as harbour town of Garrucha, famous throughout Spain for its giant succulent red prawns or “gambones”.
The year round, dry warm climate, the clear light of the Almanzora, the clean sea air combine to offer an outdoor life and holiday style unparalleled in Europe; there are no noisy crowds here, only space to relax and soak up the sun. Playa Marqués therefore boasts the ultimate in beach front holidaying and living.
Real unspoilt beach side living is the essence of Playa Marques, writ large and, at Playa Marques, you’ll find superbly situated individual luxury Beach Houses, as well as luxury Beach Duplexes, clustered around courtyard swimming pools, some directly overlooking the beach and all with stunning views from their terraces of the surrounding sea and mountains.
Playa Marques is just 5 minutes drive from Villaricos and Garrucha with their exceptional seafood restaurants and only a short distance from the small town of Vera inland, where you’ll find plenty of fine shops and a tremendous bustling Saturday market that has to be experienced to be believed. Water sports are available in Villaricos and Garrucha.
For sophisticates, the buzzy beach bars and night life of Mojacar Beach is just ten minutes along the coast, but nevertheless at a safe distance for the rest of us, who just want to amble down to one of the local ramshackle chiringuitos that dot the beach out front, grab a long slow cooler and then just laze back in the sun.
Whichever way you look at it, the Essence of Playa Marques is Beach Life!
