An Area Guide to Mil Palermas
Mil Palmeras is a beach resort situated on the eastern Mediterranean coastline of the southern Costa Blanca and forms part of the Orihuela Costa. Sitting between the resort of Dehesa de Campoamor to the north and it’s more southerly neighbour of Torre de la Horredada, Mil Palmeras (which translates as ‘One Thousand Palms’) has an exclusive feel and is renowned for it’s stunning coastline and Blue Flag accredited wide golden sandy beach. Smaller and less busy than many of it’s neighbouring urbanisations, Mil Palmeras does still have a bustling daytime scene year-round focused on its beach where you’ll find two of the most popular ‘chiringuitos’ in the area – ‘Popeyes’ and ‘Pirates’ – offering cold beer, fresh fish, traditional tapas and live music. At least one of these chiringuito beach bars, together with a reduced selection of other restaurants and facilities, remains open year-round and make this a great destination at any time of year.
Things to Do in Mil Palermas
Although Mil Palmeras is quieter in the off season, it really comes alive in the peak summer and holiday periods. In the summer months, jet ski’s, sailboards, pedalo’s and other watercraft can be hired from the beach and offer a fantastic way to spend a few hours out on the water. There is also an inflatable playground for the younger children to enjoy with plenty of scheduled beach activities taking place daily, many of them cost free.
The main square of Pueblo Latino offers a wide selection of dining options and has a walkway leading down to the main promenade and beachfront, with the plentiful bars and restaurants to either side framing beautiful views out to sea. The square itself is the venue for the popular weekly open market where you can find everything from traditional local arts and craft to fresh local produce and even some locally sourced wines and spirits.
Weather in Mil Palermas
Blessed with a climate that the World Health Organisation declare to be one of the very healthiest in the world, the area is noted as having ‘as near perfect an environment as it is possible to obtain’ – high praise indeed! Year-round sunshine and low humidity are a perfect combination and with the Costa Blanca enjoying an average annual temperature of 19o, highs of 40o+ and more than 3000 hours of sunshine over 320+ days, few other regions can compete. Water temperatures average 25o even in the autumn meaning you can take a dip in the Med well into late October whilst daytime temperatures often still reach well into the 20’s throughout December making this the perfect spot to escape the British winter!
Properties in Mil Palermas
Mil Palmeras has benefitted from a great deal of investment over the last few years and is very much considered to be one of the ‘up and coming’ areas along the coastline and is home to a number of new build developments which enjoy spectacular sea views and are no more than a few hundred meters from the beach. Mil Palmeras offers discerning buyer the increasingly rare opportunity to purchase beachside property at still reasonable and affordable prices.

Matt has been totally professional throughout and very knowledgeable about the various areas on the Costa Blanca. Nothing was too much trouble and there was none of the pressure selling we have experienced with other companies. A very honest and trustworthy person who we would happily recommend to anyone.
Thank you for your time and friendship.

The best experience we had by far when we purchased our holiday home in Cabo Roig.
We didn’t know where to start and what to look for, we originally went with another estate agent in Spain what turned out to be the worst decision of our search for a property abroad. Just as we were leaving Malaga airport we found Homes-Overseas, we rang them and spoke to Jane who was very helpful. Within a few weeks we were back out in Spain and we met up with Matt.
Matt showed us a load of properties and told us what the area had in terms of shops, beaches, restaurants etc what we weren’t given before or aware of. We were picked up, dropped off and shown whatever we wanted to see with nothing being a problem.
The whole process of buying a house with Homes Overseas was so easy, they took control of everything what needed doing what left us time to enjoy the area we had chosen to buy our holiday home in until we flew home. Even after buying the property we can still rely on Matt to sort out a few things for us like the Suma, we didn’t get our renewal but this was sorted within 10 minutes and I received a duplicate via email.
We would recommend these guys to anyone who is looking to buy a property abroad.

We are so happy to recommend Homes Overseas to anyone deciding to buy a property in Spain. Matt met us on our arrival in Torrevieja Costa Blanca and spent 3 days showing us properties and much of the surrounding areas. He was fantastic to deal with and very patient as we were initially unsure of exactly what we wanted. On our final afternoon with him we found our dream apartment.
Having paid the deposit, we returned to Ireland and Matt did the rest of the work, organising the lawyer who in turn was also great and made everything so easy for us, Nie numbers, Notary, Power of Attorney and Bank accounts were all sorted while we remained at home. The entire process took six weeks and we returned to Spain at the beginning of August to pick up our keys.
We are delighted with our new home in the sun and cannot thank Matt and Homes Overseas enough.
