Where to find a property for sale in Playa Flamenca
A small beach resort just south of Punta Prima and north of La Zenia on the southern Orihuela Costa Blanca, Playa Flamenca is a popular spot with British visitors and home hunters.
Created in 1972 by a group of Flemish investors, the resort sits on a piece of coast with fine sandy Blue Flag beaches, rocky coves, cliffs and great views. It’s now a bustling resort with a very popular market on a Saturday where you can pick up everything from clothes and shoes to freshly cooked paellas and tortillas.
Why else should you go there? It’s well-situated for many other attractions nearby and itself sits 25 minutes from Murcia San Javier airport and 45 minutes from Alicante airport. It’s got pretty much everything you need - bars, shops and restaurants at the Flamenca Beach commercial centre and Via Park plus the CDM Orihuela Costa municipal sports centre with
Sportier types will also like the fact it’s a starting point on the Orihuela Costa coastal walking route as well as having a range of horseriding, three golf courses and water sports for which you can hire equipment along the beach. A day trip by boat to Tabarca island or just a fishing trip is popular.
For a livelier scene, Playa Flamenca has quite a big selection of Irish bars, music bars and sports bars. English-run Legends bar in the commercial centre is one of some local fame, but you can also find tribute acts, poker nights, quiz evenings and of course good old English fare.
For real party hounds, the nightclubs of Torrevieja are only 10 minutes drive away. Likewise, in the unlikely event that shopaholics get bored of nearby La Zenia Boulevard (with 150 shops), there’s the Habanaras shopping centre there too. But it’s also a family-friendly place with aquaparks, go-carting and playgrounds.
What can you buy there? One of the large and popular developments in Playa Flamenca is the La Florida urbanisation, towards Punta Prima. There and around you can get a good choice of townhouses or small semi-detached villas for around €100,000-€150,000, or a larger villa for around €220,000. Apartments kick off at around €65,000.
If you love the beach and also a good choice of bars then Playa Flamenca is hard to beat amongst the smaller Orihuela Costa resorts, and it’s at the heart of everything.
