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'.

To the south are views across the sparkling waters of the Golfo de Vera, as far as the Moorish and somewhat bohemian hilltop village of Mojacar, all backed by the beachside development of Vera.

But to the north is an all but deserted series of beaches, backed by trees in the most enviable of locations, all along the coast to Villaricos.

Real unspoilt beach side living is the essence of Playa Marques, where 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.

Whichever way you look at it, the Essence of Playa Marques is Beach Life!
