Welcome to Spanish Holidays.
A chance to dream….and awake in Paradise
Rich and resplendent with centuries of history and culture coursing through its veins, this, my friend, is the real Spain.
The seaside resort of Vera Playa stretches between Puerto Rey and the pretty coastal village of Villaricos. Interestingly, it is reputed to be where Hannibal landed his elephants in Roman times, an early form of EasyJet maybe?
Since the late 1980’s development has been at a sure and steady pace, with an ongoing programme of sympathetic urban development designed to enhance rather than intrude onto this beautiful area.
There are several hotels and many beach side complexes, and the 8km of white, sandy beaches namely Las Marinas, Puerto Laguna, Pueblo Laguna and Puerto Rey have earned the prestigious Blue Flag award.
The Vera Playa Club Hotel opened its doors in 1989; it was the first naturist hotel in Spain and was swiftly followed by an entire purpose urbanisation strictly for naturists with the El Playazo beach reserved for their use.
Along with many fine restaurants, bars and shops Vera Playa is home to the areas only Water Park. The Parque Aquatico has many thrilling rides, from the hair-raising screamer nicknamed the “death slide” to the gentle and sedate “doughnuts”. There are a number of water shoots and slides and there’s even a children’s section with a play area and their own water slides, or you can merely relax by any one of the three swimming pools. The park is open from May until the end of September, and there’s a selection of bars and cafes on site for refreshments and light snacks.
For your shopping needs there are several large supermarkets like Mercadona and Consum throughout the area along with numerous independent shops and boutiques, and a number of daily local markets.
Vera Playa is fast becoming an increasingly popular year round resort, for both living and taking a holiday.
The walled, renaissance town of Vera (pronounced BERA) is one of the most important commercial centres in the region. Originally called Baria, it was the Arabs who relocated it to the hill of Espiritu Santo, but a huge earthquake destroyed it in 1518. The tale goes that Queen Isabel climbed to the top of this hill, fired an arrow and ordered that Vera be built where it landed. Vera as we know it was built in the 16th Century in the urban Renaissance style and later enlarged throughout the 18th Century.
