Vera Beach Club or Garrucha area info requested

Hi

I am booked to go to Vera Beach Club (travelling independently) near Garrucha. Seasoned independent traveller so used to foreign driving.

Looking for any recommended bars, restaurants etc in the Garrucha / Vera area and days out in the region.

Our party is 2 adults and 2 x 16 year old boys.

Many thanks

Dave

You'll be spoilt for choice with bars & restaurants. Above the nearby Consum supermarket is a chinese, Wok, which is getting good reviews (we haven't tried it yet). In Garrucha, head down to the harbour & you have plenty of good fish restaurants. Very near your hotel is a lovely restaurant, B2. Plenty of others nearby, every time we go back a few more have popped up!.

For days out, you have the water park nearby - http://www.aquavera.com/principal.asp

Your boys may enjoy Mini Hollywood which is about an hour's drive away, it's a film set where the spaghetti westerns were filmed & they have re-enactments every day - http://www.hvsl.es/lei/hojas/leio0002.htm

Another good day out would be Granada & the Alhambra, an easy 2 1/2 hour drive. Book your tickets early if you decide to do this.

There is a Kart track on the road out of Turre to Garrucha & plenty of watersports in the area. Oh, & there is an aerodrome nearby, I think they do hang glider rides from there. Info here - http://www.mojacar.co.uk/sports.htm
