Orihuela Costa

An Area Guide to the Orihuela Costa

Stretching along 16 kilometres of coastline and reaching inland to the city of Orihuela, the Orihuela Costa encompasses some of the Costa Blanca’s most popular tourist destinations and Spain’s most sought-after property locations. The real hotspot of the Costa Blanca, Orihuela Costa is THE most popular stretch of the entire Costa Blanca, the reasons for which will be abundantly clear once you’ve spent a little time there. 

The coastal stretch of Orihuela Costa is where you’ll find the resort towns offering spectacular beaches, championship golf courses, extensive year-round facilities and an unparalleled climate which combine to create the perfect destination.  Following the Mediterranean coastline from the outskirts of Torrevieja, Orihuela Costa begins at Punta Prima, taking in Playa Flamenca, La Zenia, Cabo Roig, Dehesa de Campoamor and Mil Palmeras before reaching Torre de la Horredada which marks the limit of the Alicante region and the point at which you enter Murcia.  Slightly inland, but still within a stones throw of the beaches, you’ll find a whole selection of desirable areas from which to choose – Villamartin with its famous plaza, Campoamor, Los Dolses, El Galan, La Zenia (home to the 161,000m2 shopping heaven of Zenia Boulevard), San Miguel de Salinas with it’s incredible views of the salt lakes, Lomas de Cabo Roig, Los Altos and so many more – whatever your wish list comprises, you are guaranteed to find your perfect match.

How to Get to the Orihuela Costa

Easily accessible and well served by flights from all of the major European airports, travelling down from Alicante airport takes only 45 minutes, whilst the new Corvera International Airport in Murcia is even closer at only 40 minutes drive from the centre of Orihuela Costa.  And with UK flights starting from less than a tenner each way, a long weekend in the sun is often cheaper than catching a taxi into your local town centre.


Once you have been introduced to the Orihuela Costa, it quickly becomes apparent why it holds the crown as the most popular stretch of the Costa Blanca.  Boasting beautiful Blue Flag beaches, bustling marinas and harbours, spectacular coastline, incredible night life, exciting water sports and (of course!) year-round sunshine, Orihuela Costa really does have something for everyone!

Weather in the Orihuela Costa

Not only has Orihuela Costa achieved the status as one of the worlds healthiest places in which to live, it also enjoys one of the best climates to be found anywhere in Europe.  More than 320 days of sunshine and year-round average temperatures of 19o make this the perfect location, whether for second homes, short breaks or family holidays.   Although summer temperatures often climb past 40o, due to the low humidity and cooling light breeze, even those highs are much more comfortable than you’d expect. Even winter temperatures rarely fall into single figures and you’re more likely to find yourself sunbathing on the beach with a sangria than wrapping up warm with a cocoa.



I made an enquiry and received a call from Jane who was most helpful. She was very professional and friendly and was not at all pushy, she listened to exactly what I wanted and arranged for viewings of a selection of properties that ticked the right boxes and did not waste my time.

I would highly recommend this company.

I first approached ‘Homes Overseas’ in mid 2017 enquiring about a house Villamartin. I had a very informative conversation with Jane who explained the process of buying in Spain and how they worked as a company.

I decided at the time that we would wait until after Christmas to look again so we could raise some more funds, but things changed and after speaking with Jane again, booked a trip in mid November.

I was met at the airport by Matt who then took me to my hotel ready for the next day.

Matt picked me up in the morning and gave me a very comprehensive tour of the coast from los alcazares up to Punta Prima, showing me lots of lovely towns I never knew existed, this lasted the whole day. I can’t stress enough how much this helped in making my decision the following day, the places I thought I wanted to be turned out to be totally wrong.

We met up with Matt on the Friday morning to start our property hunting. Our first impressions of Matt were that he was very friendly and so easy to get on with and he really listened to our needs. We spent the first day getting to know the area better in which we wished to buy which was essential for buying a property in the perfect location for us. Matt had lots of properties lined up for us to view and we found the perfect one on day two. Matt was very knowledgeable of the area, the properties he showed us and has helped us through every single step from putting in an offer to completion.

We cannot thank Matt enough for everything he has done for us. His cheerfulness, energy and enthusiasm for his job is second to none, What a thoroughly lovely man who we hope to spend more time with on our Spanish holidays.
