Torre De La Horadada
An Area Guide to Torre De La Horadada
Stationed at the most southerly end of the Spanish Costa Blanca, Torre de la Horadada is a town experiencing a marked surge in popularity. Originally a small Spanish fishing village, and not to be mistaken for its sister town of Pilar de la Horadada, Torre de la Horadada retains a typical Spanish pace and laid-back charm with a beautiful coastline and long dune beaches.
Things to Do in Torre De La Horadada
The town’s central square is enclosed by a selection of restaurants, offering predominantly Spanish based cuisine. Although quiet in the winter months, reflecting the mainly Spanish occupancy, the summer and holiday months bring with them an influx of holidaymakers and second homeowners meaning you’ll need to book in advance to be guaranteed a seat at your favourite. Just off the square is the marina, Porto Marina IV, capable of accommodating upto 525 berths of upto 12 meters in length, as well as a range of other motorised and wind powered watercraft. Overlooking the marina is the historic watchtower, built in 1951, which lends it’s name to the town. Originally part of the chain of coastal defensives created to protect against Berber pirates, the tower occupies a rocky outcrop jutting out into the Mediterranean and is a now a national monument.
Neighbouring the marina is the Playa del Conde, a small golden sandy beach lined cove which enjoys Blue Flag accreditation. Slightly further down the coast, Torre de la Horadada’s beaches widen out significantly and encompass the Torre dunes and long stretches of Blue Flag awarded beaches. Its along this stretch that you’ll find some of the frontline new-build beach developments, sympathetically designed and constructed to maintain the unspoilt feel of the area.
Weather in Torre De La Horadada
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 Torre De La Horadada
Properties in the area are mainly low-rise constructions ranging from low density apartment and townhouse complexes to modern detached villas offering spectacular views across the beautiful Mediterranean with something available to suit everyone, regardless of budget.

It started with a phone call….. and ended with a beautiful villa in San Miguel de Salinas!!
Where to start? Having worked in the travel industry myself previously for 18 years I read reviews all the time and think, that’s great marketing but I wonder how true that is?
Well wonder no more about Homes Overseas, because you really do get the real deal! Outstanding from the very start right to the end….. Nothing is too much trouble – they are one in a million……………. We started our search for a home in Spain like most people do watching a place in the sun, going to Spanish exhibitions and trawling the internet for suitable homes. Having made some on-line enquires via ‘A Place in the Sun’ website, before I knew it I had what seamed like every man in Spain calling me trying to book me appointments and after a week I had lost the will to live! I was more confused than when I started. Then I had the good fortune to speak to Homes Overseas and it was at that point I decided I would only use this company to check out properties.

Jayne was the first person we spoke to . She was very helpful and put us in touch with Matt . He met us from the airport and took us to our rental property . He came in to check everything was ok . The following day he drove me and my whole family around to see all the different areas . Pointing out how the areas are very close to each other as we were undecided where we wanted to buy . He was very helpful and gave us a lot of information. The next day he collected us and drove us around to view 15/16 properties, again as we were not sure what we wanted to buy. He was very patient and friendly . We choose the last property which we love . We went back the last day to review it then without feeling pressurised we choose that one . He then helped with taking us to the notary, solicitors, and the rental place all just before they were all shutting for a bank holiday . We would never have got that all dealt with before we had to return home without his help and professionalism .
We are very grateful for all his help and hope he remains a good friend and he is always welcome to pop over for a beer when we are there .

We used Homes Overseas to source a second income-generating investment property in Spain.
From the outset we found Matt to be extremely knowledgeable, helpful and always available to guide us through the process.
The after-sale care and attention from Matt has also been first class and we would not hesitate in using Homes Overseas again.
Thank you and see you soon!
