Things to do

There is plenty to do and see close to Cortijo Gacia.

Beaches – our closest beach is just twenty minutes away by car. It’s not at all built up and you could visit a different cove every day for a week! The sea is calm and very mild with swimming most of the year (personally we don’t swim in the sea between November –March but plenty do!).

Golf – we are surrounded by some lovely golf courses. Please ask for more information or let us know and we can help you reserve tee times.

Markets – there are different markets on daily in the surrounding areas.

Activities – This area is a walkers’ and bike riders’ paradise. There is lots of horse riding close by and lovely local shopping. There are lots of traditional Spanish villages and cities to explore. There is a water park for the children in Vera, go karting in Garrucha, a theme park and wildlife reserve in Murcia, a medieval castle in Lorca and Mini Hollywood in Taberno. (Now a theme park with re-enactments and a zoo, this was the movie set for many spaghetti western films made here over the years). We are driving distance to Almeria, Lorca, Murcia and even the amazing Granada.

The list of things to do is endless – there is so much to see and do if you don’t want to simply relax by the pool each day!

More detailed information on all activities and also our recommendations for restaurants and bars will be provided on arrival.
