    Being a naturist couple for many years..booked this break June last year privately online.
    It's a fantastic location and resort for seasoned naturist and those wanting to try with no pressure. The beach area is fantastic, a mostly sandy beach stretching for a mile,with loads of options on the beach or off to eat,drink at the many friendly bars naked...special mention to the "Pirate Bar" right on the beach is definitely well worth a visit or two..good cheap drinks ,food,music,and great for people watching...during our visit the beach was never over crowded with a mix of all nationalities. Also benefits with showers and toilets...def a plus for a naturist beach.
    The urbanization apartments behind the beach are mostly available to rent at all star levels..all private,securewith great facilities, outdoor,indoor pools ,gardens,sunbeds,etc...visit website veraplayafriends.com for map..
    Also from most accommodations you are able to walk the streets naked to the beach...its great!!
    At the north end of the beach is the Natura Club Hotel..a naturist hotel with a great selection of restaurants and nightlife.
    A fantastic location for a natural break.
    Four stars is for the sea can be a bit rough due wind and murky.

    After visiting the market we called into the bull ring out of interest. Fascinating insight. We toured the arena, pens, chapel and other areas. The old Spanish guides were very amenable despite not speaking any English ( why should they). I don’t agree with this tradition but non the less the arena tour was really interesting. Donations on leaving but no set price. Combine it with the Saturday morning market for a good few hours.

    Central to the town with a late medieval church dominating one side of this busy Plaza. A good spot to stop for a refreshing beer or coffee, perhaps a snack, as the world slowly revolves around you.

    Probably one of the best sights to see in Vera and pretty much central to the town. The interior space is large and very attractive

    Decided to climb up to Espiritu Santo after looking at it for 7 years, visiting Vera annually. There is wasteland parking but it’s quite tricky to find. You need to look for a single track incline on the left, as you head back into Vera from one of the roundabouts. There is a wooden signpost saying ‘Espiritu Santo’ at the start of the track.
    We used ‘What3words’ when we got there: degradation.confer.vests. will get you to the car park near the first archway entrance.

    As you walk round clockwise for a few minutes, you then have an option to go either way. Clockwise brings you to the small Museum building (Closed), retrace your steps and carry on anti-clockwise, to reach the top.
    There is only one main way up so you can’t go wrong.

    There are benches at certain points for rest breaks. Most of the way is wide stone steps, there are narrow metal staircases towards the very top. The Statue has a ledge for candle votives, flowers etc and the top area has metal safety barriers around it. Good for fantastic views in all directions. Allow at least 20 minutes to get to the top. It’s not a 10 min stroll.

    I wouldn’t say it’s intimidating (the area, in another post) just be aware you are in a poorer area with visible shanty town-like huts, as well as Villas and Corjitos.

    We went up in mid Sept and we’re the only ones. The only other people we saw were Archaeologists, working near the bottom of the monument. We’re glad we went, don’t be put off :))

    She wanted to learn to wind surf and Over Limit was closest. Nice people..flexible and the price was reasonable. Daughter had a wonderful time and actually wind surfed a lot sometimes even private lessons due to a small group! Thank you Over Limit

    These guys, Gema and Carlos, really know how to get the best out of you, and all the sweat in the process.

    As pro as it gets, Kooks offers all the machines and devices you need to work out and get a dream body. It also offers dance classes of pretty much every style, from hip hop to zumba.

    If in doubt and not in love with your shape, this is your placer.

    From the ease of booking this holiday to arriving in Spain to be greeted in arrivals the whole process was seemless. The spa hotel was amazing and deserved five stars. Food excellent throughout stay and location was perfect. The daily horse riding was spectacular with fantastic well cared for horses to breath taking views. This is a holiday like mo other and if you like horse riding, spas and good food this is the place to be.
