  SPAIN - AREA INFORMATION  -  ORIHUELA COSTA

 

Almost as an extension of Torrevieja you will find a 16km long strip of coast called Orihuela Costa that starts at Punta Prima and ends in Mil Palmeras. Here you can find a number of wonderful beaches and three golf courses. Beside this, it's a lot of urbanisations and nature areas along the coast.

Orihuela Costa is just a part of Orihuela, which is one of the largest municipalities in Spain and has much to offer the traveller or visitor. If you go about 20 km inland you will find the town of Orihuela, with a history that goes back to about 3000 BC. with an overwhelming architecture from the Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque periods. Orihuela was the provincial capital until it was transferred to Alicante, and has had a major influence on Christianity after the diocese was established here.

There are many parks and reserves in this area where there are a number of bicycle and tour paths. You can find interesting museums and monuments to visit, and there are Fiestas in the Orihuela district that have a long and colorful tradition.

You will find more on the district on page "fiesta"

At the tourist info center at Playa Flamenca you can find brochures and maps of the area

There is a path for walking along the entire Orihuela Costa, which continues into Torrevieja at the northern end.
