1. Directions to Mojacar from Almeria Airport
• If your hire car is parked on the ground level, take the slip road out of the car park, to avoid the ticket barrier; hire cars do not have to pay for car parking.

• If your hire car is parked on the upper level, follow the exit signs, go down the ramp and turn left out of the car park.

Both the above lead to below directions

• Follow this road for 300 yards and it splits, left returns back to the airport and right is signposted onto E15/N340 sign posted Murcia/Almeria.

• Follow the road round to the right.

• First roundabout go straight over and follow signs for Murcia N340, (do not take the slip road signposted N344 to Murcia.)

• At the next roundabout in the middle is a white huge metal sculpture of an Indalo man go straight over and follow this road with plastic greenhouses on either side.

• At the next roundabout go straight over and then take the slip road to the right for Murcia E15/A7 N340, go up the slip road and join the motorway. You are now on the Autovia del Mediteraneo.

• Once on the motorway, sit back and relax – notice Almeria prison on the right hand side, plus all the plastic greenhouses which house the tomato crops – they have four crops per year as this is the sunniest part of Europe!

• After Junction 48 you will see signs for Vera – keep going!

• You can leave the motorway at Junction 494 Carboneras if you would like to take the scenic route through the mountains (not for the faint hearted!); this is a slower and windier route but is obviously prettier. The motorway bypasses the mountains.

• Junction 504 Sorbas – this is a nice Spanish town to visit with lovely villas and town square. You have to go past Sorbas to get to Mini Hollywood.

• Junction 520 Los Gallardos, Turre, Mojacar, Bedar – exit the motorway at this junction.

• Turn right at the roundabout at the top of the slip road, sign posted Turre (6 kms) and Mojacar (9 kms) (AL-150). This is a pleasant road which will take you through the countryside.


Directions to Mojacar from Almeria Airport (Continued)

• You will come to a bridge over the Rio Aguas – you have right of way over oncoming traffic.

• At the next bridge, there is no right of way – be careful!

• You will pass signs for Cortijo Grande where there is a pleasant 9 hole golf course. As you follow this road round you can see Mojacar Pueblo (village) on the right hand side in the mountains.

• You will pass through Turre, which is a lovely quaint Spanish town. We can thoroughly recommend restaurant Mesa de Peppe (which is on the left hand side as you come through the town. On the right is the ‘Super Turre’ supermarket at which you might like to stop to pick up supplies. It looks like a bomb’s hit it but don’t be deceived by its appearance.

• This road will bring you into the bottom of Mojacar Pueblo, the road goes off to the right and carries on to the left for Mojacar Playa (Beach), follow the road round to the left and down the hill.

• Follow this road down the hill to a new roundabout with the CEPSA petrol station on the right hand side. Take the first right at this roundabout for The Playa and Carboneras. The road will continue down and you will soon arrive at The Playa, with the Parque Commercial shopping centre on the left hand side. (Nice little shopping centre with lots of boutiques, gift shops, cafes, restaurants and a supermarket on the lower level). This is where you will find bank cash points.

• Follow this road along for about 3.5km, past various bars, restaurants and shops. You will go past the Parator hotel, El Arbol (supermarket), Ferreteria Lopez (hardware/DIY store – worth a visit just to see what they don’t sell in there!), next to Lopez and before Mr UK, is Pollo Agados, which sells wonderful take-away dishes; past the camp site on the right hand side, you will also see lots of beach bars (chiranquitos on the left hand side, these are well worth a visit at lunchtime), a new roundabout with the Red Cross Centre on the left hand side, opposite a large Pharmacy with a green cross, more bars and restaurants and another new roundabout with the riding stables on left hand side and La Gaviota on the right.

• Further along past the Irish Rover bar on the left hand side and Bar Lua (fantastic beach bar) on the left hand side.

• Once you’ve reached the gardens of Alcazaba you need to follow the path to the left hand side, which takes you to the access road at the rear of the apartments. Towards the bottom of the incline you will then see apartments 2F/2G.

Alternatively, you can carry up the hill on Calle Mesquite and turn right at the top, it’s a bumpy dust track, but you will see the apartment complex in front of you, go down the steep hill and there is parking at the bottom on the right hand side.

Murcia to Mojacar Playa (via new toll Road – 11 euros…ish?).

Everyone’s raving about this new road, as it apparently can cut the time to around 70/80 mins. There are reports of poor signage however so you should allow a couple of hours in case & remember, it’s advisable to watch your speed, as the old bill have been calculating speed between tolls.

• WHEN LEAVING THE AIRPORT GO STRAIGHT AHEAD AT THE FIRST AND SECOND ROUNDABOUTS, UNDER THE DUAL-CARRIAGEWAY, FOLLOWING SIGNS FOR CARTEGENA.

• AT THE THIRD ROUNDABOUT TURN LEFT ON TO THE AP7 FOLLOWING SIGNS FOR CARTAGENA AND MURCIA.
