Playa Flamenca is a lovely residential area of the Orihuela Costa that offers visitors pristine Blue Flag beaches, activities, attractions and lively entertainment venues. Various commercial centres are built facing the N-332 where there are bars and restaurants and a variety of shops. The small centre on the Mercadona roundabout is home to the very popular Maxx Gym and a recently opened small indoor market. opposite this is the Town Hall/Council Offices.
A bit further north along the N-332 is the popular Flamenca Beach Commercial Centre. Some of the area’s best bars and restaurants are located here.
Flamenca Beach has two main sandy coves connected by the wonderful coastal path that runs the entire length of the Orihuela Costa. The main and most popular cove is a lively, family friendly place where the hub of the action revolves around the busy wooden beach bar. There are great facilities, lifeguards, beach and water sports and a first aid station in the summer.
The cove next door is similar in size but has fewer facilities. This doesn’t have a bar right on the beach but just behind is a small commercial centre. Here visitors will find a handy little post office, bakery, ice cream parlour, a couple of restaurants and the lively Surfers Bar & Grill.
Local’s tip: rent a bike to paddle along the beach and discover some hidden places you would not find otherwise.
