Roquetas de Mar
Roquetas comes with huge beaches, a newly refurbished palm-fringed promenade that stretches for miles. It is lined with restaurants, cafes and fantastically authentic tapas bars. You’ve also got a lovely old town here, with narrow Moorish streets and rustic houses. Very different from many other Spanish resorts that have a predominantly ‘high rise’ character.
Most holidays centre on the pool, the many golf courses, or the wide, uncrowded beautiful beach. Windsurfer, pedlos and Jet Ski’s are available locally for hire. Tennis, cycling and golf are very popular in this resort. For fans of water slides etc, The Mario Water Park is just outside Roquetas town. For the more adventurous the large go-cart track is nearby too.
Roquetas de Mar has plenty of great Restaurants & Cafes, most with a definite Spanish accent, with Tapas available freely in many bars for the price of a drink. You will also find many bars (and few discrete nightclubs) open the early hours.
Grand Plaza out of town shopping centre is only a short bus ride away, and excellent Spa facilities available at nearby Playa Sol Hotel and Protur Roquetas Hotel and Spa (May to October).
