The Orihuela Costa
The Orihuela Costa is 16 kilometres of coast shared between beaches at Punta Prima, Playa Flamenca, La Zenia, Cabo Roig and Campoamor. Every year 2 of the the Playa Flamenca beaches have been granted the Blue Flag by the European Union for their excellent state of services, hygiene and conservation. The beaches are well signposted and possess a range of services such as showers, footbaths, ramps, children's play areas, first aid station, lifeguard services, beach security guards and special areas of relaxation. Some services are available during the main summer season only.
Also along this stretch of coast there is a succession of sandy coves backing onto cliffs which are very popular with tourists and residents alike due to the crystal clear waters and the golden sand. The little beach bars, "chiringuitos", serve tapas, snacks and cold drinks and are a good place to watch the world go by.
This stretch of coast has two sports marinas, one at Cabo Roig and the other in Campoamor where nautical sports can be practiced. The Playa Flamenca beach has a first-aid station, game zone, public telephone, public lavatories and showers, as well as several restaurants.
