Punta Prima

An Area Guide to Punta Prima

Punta Prima is the most northerly of the Orihuela Costa coastal urbanisations and comprises a number of smaller communities including La Florida, Los Almendros, Los Altos, Dream Hills and La Cenuelica.  Located only 5 minutes from the town of Torrevieja, Punta Prima is also only a few minutes’ drive from all of the beaches and facilities of the surrounding urbanisations such as La Zenia Boulevard.  The convenience of the location has made it a favourite destination for a broad mix of nationalities from all over the world and made it a sought after destination for holiday home buyers.

Things to Do in Punta Prima

The area itself incorporates plenty of leisure facilities, all within easy walking distance. These include the Punta Marina commercial centre with its landmark McDonalds, the Punta Prima ‘strip’ and the Zeniamar centre, all of which offer a wide selection of bars, restaurants and entertainment venues.  Beachside of the N332 coastal road you’ll find the Cala Piteras beach, overlooked by the infamous Nautilus Restaurant which has been a landmark in the area since 1975 and offers one of the best value menus around served in a beautiful waterfront setting.   This point marks the beginning of the Paseo Maritimo promenade, a cycling and pedestrian walkway which joins the neighbouring beachfront urbanisations and offers a wonderful beachside walk along the coastline.  A short walk down the promenade from Cala Piteras will bring you to the Playa de Punta Prima, 6550 m2 of pristine golden sands and clear blue Mediterranean waters well served by a tradition ‘chiringuito’ (beach bar) and the impressive Punta Prima Restaurant, one of the areas best situated and finest quality eatery.  A great place to stop for a spot of lunch as you wander down the coast, enjoying the spectacular views and beautiful Costa Blanca sunshine.

Weather in Punta Prima

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!

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.

We’d been looking for a property in Spain for around 6 months but with no joy with other agents, we came into contact with Matt who suggested we went out to Spain to get a feel for the area (this was not something we were offered from other agents). We landed on a Friday morning and were greeted by Matt at the airport who gave us a tour of the local areas, beaches and tourist attractions which we had shown interest in. This was a very relaxed affair with no hard sales pitches.  On the Saturday we started to look for our holiday home, at the 2nd property Matt struck gold and we loved it, we really didn’t need to look any further. Matt was the only agent to actually listen to what we wanted and delivered just that.

Matt is a thoughtful man who gave us the confidence to complete the sale within 4 weeks. Matt drove us to the bank, solicitor, notary and even looked after the children whilst we arranged the financials 4 weeks later. An excellent professional service delivered with excellence and precision.

Love, Louise and Mark

The service we received from Home Overseas was first class, everything explained step by step in layman’s terms by friendly well informed staff from beginning to end by Jayne and Matt.

We were selling and purchasing so it was an intricate time for us everything had to be timed with military precision.  We felt reassured by the professionalism and genuine care the company offered:  Matt dealt with everything from Notary visits and solicitors appointments,  making way for the fun part “searching for a property” – we explained what was on our wish list –  what we could compromise on and our budget.

Matt put together two full days of viewing without any pressure or stress filled sales talk, and always with a smile.

When we found our forever property we were both touched that Matt was totally genuinely pleased for us.  It is clear Matt and Jayne work very hard to match people up with their dream properties-  the difference Home Overseas offer than other companies we have dealt with is, they work in an upbeat personal manner,  in no way making you feel they are trying to get “the deal”.

Matt Austin delivered our dream with great enthusiasm, professionalism, knowledge and understanding.  We not only found a great property but a friend for life.

We would sincerely recommend “Home Overseas”  Matt and Jayne to any potential buyer
