Guide to Playa Flamenca

The Resort of Playa Flamenca – It was just after the development of the area by several Flemish investors at the start of nineteen seventies that Playa Flamenca became a trendy resort. Up until then it was simply a stretch of stark but nice coastline on the Orihuela Costa.

Playa Flamenca right now, is one of the most attractive hotspots along this stretch of the Alicante coastline and the just recently renovated beachfront and pathway are a joy to see. The cliff walkway goes all the way from Dehesa de Campoamor to Torrevieja, passing Playa Flamenca on the way, hugging the lovely beach resorts of Aguamarina, Cabo Roig, Punta Prima and La Zenia.

One of the town’s principal attractions is its Saturday market which is held each week on the main thoroughfare through Playa Flamenca, just past the Mercadona supermarket. People flock from the surrounding resorts to visit this impressive and vibrant market. The choice of merchandise displayed on the Playa Flamenca street market is incredible, you could obtain bags, plants, clothes, watches and sweets, or simply get some locally grown, fresh fruit and veg or fresh bread and cakes prepared on the day. You will feel peckish when you pass the spit-roast chicken van, so why not purchase a tasty garlic flavoured chicken, or you can see a traditional paella being prepared right before your eyes and take some home for your dinner.

The Flamenca Beach commercial centre, together with Via Park I and II are the primary places for drinking places, restaurants and shops, and there you’ll find all your require with respect to recreation and entertainment. You will find a large number of dining places offering up food from all around the world, plus lots of chance to watch a live group, test your brain in a quiz, try a spot of karaoke, catch up on the latest TV sport or perhaps have a drink or two.

The excellent climate is without a doubt one of the leading attractions for anyone planning a trip to this area and Playa Flamenca is no exception, as the resort benefits from around three hundred days of sunshine every year. The best weather is through the period of June to September and that is the time when the region properly livens up with tourists from Europe and Spain itself descending on the resort. However the wintertime season still provide exceptional weather, which means it is a desirable place for wintertime breaks for those planning to get time away from the cold dark winters of Northern Europe.

Golfing Facilities: Golf courses near the resort include La Finca, La Marquesa, Las Colinas Golf, Lo Romero, Las Ramblas, Campoamor and Villa Martin.

Playa Flamenca has the benefit of very good road links with the AP-7 motorway or the N-332 coastal road close by, making use of these roads El Altet (Alicante) airport is 68km by car and San Javier (Murcia) airport is twenty two minutes drive.
