Vera Playa Vacations

Our location

Vera Playa

Vera Playa - where the desert meets the sea - is situated on the Costa de Almeria, south-east Spain and enjoys around 322 days of sunshine a year - making it the warmest and driest part of Europe.  Even in winter, rarely does the mercury dip below 18°C making this a most pleasurable destination for naturism even out of season. 

Naturist Zone

Vera Playa is unique, because it is a naturist seaside resort where you can walk the public streets, promenade and 2 kilometers of sandy naturist beach completely naked and free.


The beach is fringed by the low-rise naturist residential zone made up of 15 fully naturist ‘urbanizations’ connected by public streets where you’ll see naked walkers meandering to the beach where nudity is perfectly normal and accepted.  

Wonderful apartments to rent in the heart of the naturist zone

   Apartamento 'Mediterráneo'

One word: Panoramic!  This describes the view of the Vera Playa naturist beach and Mediterranean Sea you’ll enjoy from the principal rooms and terraces of this stunning, luxurious penthouse apartment.

      Apartamento 'Almodóvar'

A bright & spacious apartment set in paradise-like gardens with exotic planting.   By night the pool and gardens are gently lit, transforming the daytime paradise into a magical evening affair.

The Beach

Take your lunch naked at one of the beach bars or just have a drink.  Even when busy, the beach retains a wonderful atmosphere which makes everyone regardless of age, gender or sexual orientation feel welcome and at ease. This also makes it an excellent choice of destination for the first-time naturist.  


If you fancy a change from sunbathing, there are naked activities like volleyball, tug-of-war, petanque and fun-runs.  If you prefer to just sit and watch rather than take part - then that's okay too as you'll be in very good company! 


The surrounding area is full of activities – golf, water parks, theme parks, boat trips, and water sports – so your holiday can be as active or easy as you wish!


Just outside the naturist zone but still within walking distance is a large supermarket and more bars, restaurants and shops – so everything you need is always close at hand.

Across the road from ‘Consum’ (supermarket) is the Salinas, a wetland area and haven for birdlife including Flamingos and other migrating species.  


Regular cheap bus services take you further afield if you wish to explore the area which is rich in history and culture.

Other places close by, ready to explore


This port and seaside town is about 3 miles from Vera Playa. You can walk there along the beach (clothing required once out of the naturist zone) or alternatively there is a regular bus service to and from Vera Playa. 


There is an excellent market on Fridays and lots of small shops, banks, pharmacies and a large Mercadona supermarket.


There are many fish restaurants worth trying on the main esplanade thanks to the thriving fishing fleet operating from the port.


About 6miles or 15 minutes drive away from Vera Playa, further along the coast, is the holiday resort of Mojácar Playa with plenty of bars, shops and restaurants on a strip that seems to stretch for miles! This can also be accessed by bus from Vera Playa. 


Backing Mojácar Playa, in the mountains, is the dazzling, pretty, white village of Mojacar Pueblo (pictured), which dates back over 5000 years. The views from up here are breathtaking! You can see the Pueblo in the distance from the naturist beach at Vera Playa. 


The Pueblo is a maze of Moorish arches, narrow, winding, cobbled streets and stairways climbing up and down the steep mountainside. Full of artisan shops and commercial and artistic life by day and a lively meeting point with bars and restaurants at night. Can be quite bustling in the evening in summer. 


A bus service runs up to the Pueblo from Mojácar Playa.


Vera town about 6 miles inland and is the main commercial centre of the area.


Saturday is market day and is visited by locals and tourists alike from the surrounding towns and villages.


The main square, Plaza Mayor, has noteworthy buildings with some dating back to the 16th Century.


Five mins drive from Vera Playa is this quiet seaside village, with a small fishing harbour, marina and promenade where you will find a few bars and restaurants. 

A diving school is located here. 


There is a good lively market every Sunday morning in the square.

Gabo de Gata nature reserve

The national park covers over 34,000 hectares and is the largest coastal nature park in Andalucia.


It has many coves and beaches to explore many of which are naturist friendly. 


There are wonderful seaside towns and villages to visit too, such as Agua Amarga, San Jose, Carboneras and Isleta del Moro.

Inland mountain routes

We are blessed to have beautiful mountain ranges within daytrippable distance of VP. It's definitely worth hiring a car to explore the Sierras Alhamilla, Cabrera, Filabres, Estancias and Las Alpujarras. Some highlights within easy reach of VP include the Bedar-Lubrín-Uleila route, the Lucaneina-Nijar route and a visit to Santuario del Saliente.

Mini Hollywood

Just outside the village of Tabernas, is the film set known as 'Mini Hollywood', which was used for film epics such as 'The Good, The Bad and The Ugly'.


Cowboy shows are held here throughout the summer season and is worth a visit if you are a fan of cowboy films!


Almeria city is the province’s coastal capital and has a massive ancient fortress, the Alcazaba. This dates back over 1000 years and was used as the region’s main observation point looking over the Mediterranean Sea. 


Almeria also has a charming Old Quarter, with squares and tapas bars as well as a chic, cosmopolitan centre with comprehensive shopping facilities and pretty parks.


A 35-minute drive up the coast from Vera Playa, Águilas is a substantial seaside town that boasts considerable attractions and is definitely worth a visit.


Expansive sands, a string of coves, a charming square, numerous promenade-side eateries, a castle, marina and excellent shopping, Águilas has something for everyone. 

In summary

The whole region is full of history, culture, nature and an amazing landscape.

"What a find…From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we enjoyed every minute of our holiday … the beautiful setting not to mention the stunning apartment with every single thing provided that you could possibly need & more besides…there’s not many places of this standard left for such a good price where you actually feel that they care about what they do to make their guests feel special & we certainly did. Thank you Chris & Steve."

“Have stayed in both of Chris and Steve’s apartments.  Mediterráneo is first line on the beach with phenomenal sunrises.  When the 30 meter walk is too much, the balcony on two sides give you total privacy.  Booking is safe and secure I really appreciated the phone call so any fears you are being scammed are put to rest.  Looking forward to our next visit.”

"We cannot rate Vera Playa Vacations highly enough. Steve and Chris are the most amazing hosts and they go that extra mile to ensure guests have the best time ever. It makes a huge difference to have people who genuinely care about their guests!  The apartment was spotless and well equipped with everything you could need. The location is fab and only a few minutes from the beach and five minutes stroll to the main restaurants.  We will be returning again (and again, and again)"

"We visited Vera for the first time last July. Chris and Steve were so helpful, right from the very beginning when we were booking our holiday with them right through until we had to leave to come home. Everything was perfect...our apartment, the terrace for our lazy breakfasts, the swimming pool, the beach, bars, sunshine ... the list goes on! We can guarantee you won't regret it if you book with Vera Playa Vacations. I won't say adios as we will be returning soon!!"
