Property for Sale in Orihuela Costa

5 Reasons to purchase property in Orihuela Costa

Orihuela Costa extends from Punta Prima on the outskirts of Torrevieja to the far side of Campoamor. It is renowned for its fabulous blue flag beaches and vast range of golf courses.

Complete Spanish Property gives you five reasons for buying a property in Orihuela Costa.

1. Incredible Location.

Orihuela Costa is ideally situated close to two major international airports and the AP7 coastal motorway. This provides easy access to the Spanish Costas and through internal flights to other parts of Spain. There are regular flights to most countries in Europe from the two airports.

Although there is no train station in the Costa itself, Orihuela does have a railway station from where you can access Elche, Alicante and Murcia and travel to more distant locations using the AVE (Spain's high speed rail network).

Orihuela Costa, as you might expect, is linked to the town of Orihuela. However, most parts of the coast are around 20 km from the town centre. As a result it does have many of its own, independent facilities including town hall, schools, sports centre and medical centres.

Orihuela Costa is within easy travelling distance of the historic cities of Cartagena, Murcia and Elche. It takes around 1 hour to reach Alicante with all the shopping, leisure and transport facilities it hosts. Further north you will find the picturesque towns of Pilar de la Horadada, San Pedro and the very popular Los Alcazares. These are all worth a dedicated visit if you have the opportunity.

2. Blue flag Beaches everywhere.

Where do you start with Orihuela's beaches? These blue flag beaches extend along some 16 kilometres of coast. Golden sand, coves and stretches of beach that seem to go on forever – you really are spoilt for choice. You'll just think you've discovered the best when you'll come across another.

But you don't have to just lie on the sand or swim in the crystal clear Mediterranean sea. There are lots of water sports in the area and ports and harbours if you wish to keep a boat. You can try snorkelling, water skiing, windsurfing, sub aqua and sailing. For something a little less strenuous why not hire a pedalo for a couple of hours or, if you're wanting a little more excitement, you can take a ride on a banana boat. There really is something for all the family.

Each beach has it own individual appeal. Cala Capitán near Cabo Roig has two bays and provides an ideal paddling area for younger children whilst older ones will enjoy snorkelling and watching the thousands of little fish swimming in the clear, blue water.

La Zenia beach is popular for its beach bars or chiringuitos that often include entertainment well into the evening. The restaurant, set on the cliff overlooking the sea, provides the perfect spot for enjoying good cuisine and gazing at the view. It's a very popular venue at Christmas when people from all over the costa join together on Christmas day, along with the customary brass band too.

Many of these beaches have been accredited as being 'Blue Flag'. This means that they have been checked for:

    ·Environmental education and information e.g. map of the beach, code of conduct

    ·Water quality e.g. no industrial, waste-water or sewage-related discharges

    ·Environmental management e.g. the beach must be clean, bins available, toilets must be provided

    ·Safety and services e.g. adequate number of lifeguards and first aid equipment, supply of drinking water

Punta Prima, Playa Flamenca, Cala Capitán, Cab Roig, La Zenia, Playa de la Glea (Campoamor); with so many blue flag beaches to choose from you really need to explore them all and pick out your own personal favourites.

3. First Class Golf Courses

One of the reasons that the Orihuela Costa is buzzing all year round is its golf. There isn't just one golf course but four to choose from. You can take your pick from the 'Real Club de Golf Campoamor', Villamartin, Las Ramblas or Las Colinas.

Having several to choose from you can make sure that your choice matches your needs and your level. The great benefit of taking up golf in Spain is the number of days of sunshine. Whatever time of the year you travel, it is unlikely and unlucky if rain stops play.

Although there are services, bars and restaurants associated with each golf course, you find many people congregating on the famous Cabo Roig strip or Villamartin Plaza in the evening. Here, the restaurants and nightlife are international in flavour and you can eat anything from Aberdeen Angus steaks to the finest lobsters.

4. Markets, shops and restaurants

All around the Orihuela Costa you will find dotted shops, bars and restaurants. Some of these are located on 'strips' close to the beaches. There are also a selection of shopping centres like Zenia Boulevard that bring facilities together under one roof, although most do not have a 'roof' as such. In addition to Zenia Boulevard you have the Playa Famenca centre, La Fuente and Punta Marina centre.

Markets are held regularly in most parts of the Costa. A particularly popular one is that held every Saturday morning in Playa Flamenca. For this, the streets are closed as people meander up and down its many stalls and take the opportunity to buy fresh fruit, vegetables and many leather and lace items.

The Villamartín Plaza has always been a popular venue for people staying or living around the Villamartin area. There are numerous restaurants and bars and during the summer in particular it has a lively and bustling feel. If you are considering buying property in Orihuela Costa, it is well worth a visit.

It would be unfair to select out any particular restaurants for you to try. Safe to say that virtually every type of food is represented somewhere in Orihuela Costa. Your only problem is having enough time, money and notches in your belt, to try them all.

5. Spoilt for choice

Whatever your accommodation needs, chances are you will find a property to match. Its popularity means that there are plenty of urbanisations and residential areas to choose from for those buying property in Orihuela Costa. Luxury villas in more secluded spots, the well-established areas of La Zenia and Caba Roig or newer developments near the new shopping centre. You really are spoilt for choice.

Most areas are also mixed in their nationality. This is reflected in the choice and celebration of a number of different festivals and fiestas in the area. Whatever your nationality you will not feel isolated in this part of Spain and are likely to be able to find people who speak your language not too far away.

Clubs and associations are everywhere and a quick look through the pages of a local free paper will soon give a new resident ideas about groups to join, if that's what you want to do. Orihuela Costa is very much about choosing your own lifestyle, mixing with who you wish and above all, enjoying this beautiful coastline.
