Mojacar is a municipality of Almeria province at about 90 km/55 mi away, located in the southwest. This village lies between Carboneras and Garrucha, bordering the Sierra Cabrena mountains and the Mediterranean sea. The village has been inhabited by Phoenicians, Greeks and Romans during ancient times, leaving behind their architectural style. The whole village is built on the top of the hill with white traditional buildings surrounded by a big labyrinth of small narrow streets. Mojacar is a typical Mediterranean sunny village with more than 3000 hours of sun per year.

Water sports enthusiasts will love the Mojacar Playa, with its blue water seaside and blue-flag and the all year warm water beaches. Temperatures vary with colder months being January to February (8-10°C/46.40-50°F)  and warmest between July and August (21-30°C/69.80-86°F). Water temperature during summer is quite warm, about 20-22°C/68-71.60°F.

Mojacar wave size is small, usually less than a meter, tide independent, with swell direction south west. The winds are frontal thermal, about 4 and 5 Bft, south west direction, not the best for experienced kites, but try during lunch hour to catch stronger ones. With mountains blocking stronger winds, this is a great spot for a beginner to learn and practice. A lot of room to launch your kite and even larger space to kite.

Best time to visit the spot is during summer where there are a lot of kiters. You can attend a lot of schools for instructions and lessons for beginners. There are also a lot of shops where you can buy your equipment from.
