The village Vera is located about 10 km away from the shore of Vera Playa. The town has some historical buildings, like the townhouse and the church Nuestra Señora de la Encarnación, that are located around a small square in the village. You can also find a bullring or plaza de toros. The ring is still being used for bullfights and other activities and festivities today.
Just an hour drive from Vera Playa you will find the theme park Oasis mini Hollywood in Tabernas. This theme park was build in 1965 as a movie set for various western movies (such as: the good, the bad and the ugly).
Later it became a theme park with a zoo with daily shows.
For those who love swimming, there's also a pool, but you'll have to pay an extra entrance fee.
TIP: make sure to check the times of the shows in the zoo, the saloon and the town square.

Those of you who like Licor 43 could pay a visit to Experiencia 43. Make sure to make a reservation in advance, otherwise you'll see nothing more than the little shop and the outside of the building.
These are some of the establishments in the area that we've tried en liked.
One of our favourite restaurants in Vera Playa is Lua Puerto Rey. The beautiful restaurant is centrally located, just outside the nudist area. You get great value for money at any time but get the most out of it we recommend to go for the lunch menu.
This spacious restaurant is right next to the beach of Vera Playa. You can sit inside and outside while enjoying a varied cuisine.Attached to the restaurant you can find the beach club. During the day you can rent a sunbed or sip a cocktail next to the pool. In the evening the party continues at the nightclub.
