La Zenia is a popular area centrally located on the Orihuela Costa. It is well known for the superb Zenia Boulevard shopping complex and excellent Blue Flag beaches. The area also boasts a further choice of commercial centres, the Orihuela Costa Resort and some great bars and restaurants.
Much of the holiday accommodation is located around the beachfront area, allowing visitors to enjoy sunny days swimming and sunbathing on the fantastic golden sand beach without needing to walk far. Great facilities add to the attraction of the beach and a buzzing social scene centres around the quaint beach snack bar. Here visitors can choose from a good range of drinks and hot and cold snacks, as well as jugs of sangria and potent cocktails. During the summer free salsa and zumba classes in the sand liven up the ambient even more.
Local’s tip: To the left from la Zenia beach at Cala Cerrada you will find a great surfing spot with pleasant waves, more frequent during the spring and autumn months. Just to the right from La Zenia beach, the Cala del Capitan and its tiny Isla del Carmen awaits you with great snorkelling spots and some rock jumping possibility for the adventurers.
