Playa Flamenca - Orihuela Costa - Spain

Playa Flamenca Spain – One of the major seaside resorts of the Orihuela Costa district of the Costa Blanca, Spain, Playa Flamenca is a well known holiday destination with good beaches, plenty of bars and restaurants, supermarkets, and maybe its biggest attraction, the Saturday street market, which attracts shoppers from all over the region and shuts down much of the residential part of the resort on Saturday mornings.

Other than the market there are no major tourist attractions in Playa Flamenca, the closest being in Torrevieja in the form of the Aquopolis water park, though there is Villamartin golf course for golfers and the Go-Karts at Punta Prima, both close by. Playa Flamenca is a pleasant resort, suited to those seeking a beach style holiday with plenty of places to eat and drink and be entertained in the evenings.

Playa Flamenca has several commercial centres where you will find the bulk of the pubs and restaurants, and these are dotted throughout the resort. There is a row of shops, bars and restaurants at the back of the two main beaches of Playa Flamenca, and a couple of commercial centres just on the other side of the N-332, the main road which runs through the resort. The biggest of all is the Flamenca Beach commercial centre, set on 3 levels and boasting a great variety of places to eat, drink and shop. Notable in Flamenca Beach is the Temple Bar, where the Blues Brothers tribute is always popular, the Temple Bar is on the lower level.

The well known Saturday street market starts at around 8.00am and carries on until about 2.00pm, it can get very hot and busy in the summer time, so get there early and be away by 10.30am if possible, for the best experience. To get to the market from the N-332, turn off by the Town Hall/Police Station/Mercadona and follow the road through to the residential area. The best place to park is actually in the Mercadona car park and walk from there (just follow the crowds).

Playa Flamenca is about five minutes drive from Torrevieja and is close to Punta Prima, La Zenia, Cabo Roig and Villamartin Golf. The nearest airport is at Murcia, San Javier, which is about 25 minutes drive, Alicante airport is about 45 minutes drive.
