Playa Flamenca - Costa Blanca - Spain
Playa Flamenca - Situated on the Orihuela Costa coastline the beautiful resort of Playa Flamenca is a popular location for holidaymakers visiting the southern Costa Blanca in Spain.
With a superb beach, a newly refurbished promenade area, an excellent choice of rental accommodation and a great range of facilities, Playa Flamenca is an ideal spot for a family holiday, for relocation or just for a weekend break away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Playa Flamenca grew up in the 1970's when a group of Flemish investors saw potential in the area, and developed a section of barren coastline into the modern resort that it is now.
A number of other fine resorts have also developed along this stretch of coast making it a popular area with visitors of all nationalities. There are other sandy beaches within walking distance, and many more within an easy drive or bus trip.
Playa Flamenca is in the centre of a very busy piece of coast called the Orihuela Costa, and this is located south of the well known town of Torrevieja and extends from Punta Prima in the north to Mil Palmeras in the south taking in the resorts of La Zenia, Campoamor and Cabo Roig, the golf courses of Villamartin, Las Ramblas and Campoamor and the urbanizations of La Florida, Los Balcones, Zeniamar, Horizonte, Aguamarina and San Jose to name but a few.
Playa Flamenca is a fairly compact resort and the beach area is backed by some good facilities on the beach side of the N-332 including the Post Office (Correos) and some fine shops and restaurants, within walking distance is the Flamenca beach commercial centre with a huge range of shops, bars and restaurants, with plenty of live entertainment available. Beside the N-332 coast road you will also find the Mercadona supermarket and complex with more shopping opportunities.
A short walk from here and on Saturdays you will find the large street market, which is very popular with visitors to Playa Flamenca, but also draws crowds from the entire area. The market is more spacious than the typical Spanish street market although it can still get very packed, so it is always best to arrive early (the market starts around 8.00am and finished at 2.00pm).
Playa Flamenca enjoys a superb Mediterranean climate with hot summers, mild winters and low rainfall making it an ideal all year round resort. Playa Flamenca is within easy driving distance of both Murcia (San Javier) airport (25 minutes) and Alicante airport (45 minutes) and can be easily accessed from both the N-332 coastal road and the AP-7 motorway (La Zenia exit). To the south of Playa Flamenca are the resorts of La Zenia, Cabo Roig and Campoamor, to the north, Zeniamar, Punta Prima and Torrevieja.
