Last Sunday morning as I headed for Macenas I drove over the barranca that runs between Marina De La Torre and El Palmoral.
I have walked over that bridge hundreds of times since I have lived here, but the recent rains had brought it ‘to life’ and I was seeing it with fresh eyes.
I turned the car around and drove to the single-track road I had seen so many mountain-bikers gathering at in the past. After a few hundred metres I pulled off the track and ‘released the hounds.’
I looked up and realised I was alongside Marina De La Torre Golf Resort.
There are three golf courses in the immediate area of Mojacar/Vera/Cuevas Del Almanzora.
The first thing you need to remember living in Almeria is that it is a desert. In fact, the only true desert in Europe. So, a golf courses is an oasis, created and maintained for enthusiasts to enjoy.
One of the hidden attractions of these courses is the urbanisations and resorts that subtly emerge within the course itself, providing both accommodation and investment opportunities alike.
They also provide employment all year around at the facilities – for both locals and ex-pats.
Marina De La Torre is an excellent example of a resort that is ‘self-supporting’. It has a selection of hotels with Restaurants that are bustling in the summer but cosy and inviting in the winter.
The Marina has something for everyone. Even if you are not a golfer, it also supports other sports – such as cycling and tennis, and of course there is the well-known Paseo de Mediterraneo: a paved promenade running for 20 km right outside your front door. It is suitable to walking, running and leisure cycling, and has plenty of ‘watering holes’ along the way.
Because of our climate – it is possible to play/pursue outdoor activities all year around – making a two-bedroomed apartment an excellent investment for you, your family and friends.
At Marina De La Torre, you have the luxury of living alongside the beach and the mountains. You are conveniently placed for accessing Garrucha – a thriving fishing town with a truly Spanish culture (and a Lidl!); but you are the ‘right’ side of Mojacar not to be bothered by the Summer holiday makers.
There is a good mix of properties on the resort – some are first line, some are green-side and now, new phases are being released; all of which have a panoramic sea and mountain view from their elevated position.
