Mediterranean cuisine on the Alboran Sea
Mojácar is seafaring, but its gastronomy also reflects the traditional cuisine of the interior, with vegetables, pasta, game, free-range meats and Alpujarras stews. At the Parador you can savour exquisite Mediterranean fish and seafood - the Garrucha red prawns are a must - rice dishes, classic seafood dishes and tasty fruit and vegetable-based dishes.
Seafood cuisine to the lullaby of the waves
In the bright dining room of the Parador’s restaurant you can enjoy, with views of the sea, the famous Garrucha red prawns, among other seafood, and traditional seafood stews such as Garrucha fishermen’s soup, cuttlefish casserole or tasty Garrucha rice, without neglecting dishes such as cod confit, fish from the estuary and the coast or the 100% native breed of Iberian pork. It is advisable to sweeten the end of the meal with mojaquera cream.

Wild natural beaches with crystal clear water
The town of Mojacar is known for its white houses, "hanging" from the Sierra de Cabrera and scattered through the maze of narrow streets adorned with brightly coloured flowers. From the Mirador de la Plaza Nueva you can see the immense Mediterranean Sea and the steep slopes of the Sierra. The environment is perfect for hiking, cycling, surfing and sailing, as well as other activities. The Natural Park of Cabo de Gata, just 20 minutes away, offers a wide range of water activities and natural beaches on the best-preserved cliff coast of the European Mediterranean coast.
