Playa Flamenca

Playa Flamenca is a small beach resort just south of Punta Prima and north of La Zenia on the southern Orihuela Costa Blanca. One of the large developments in Playa Flamenca is the La Florida urbanisation.

Playa Flamenca was created in 1972 by a group of Flemish investors which turned a deserted coastline and beaches into the popular, thriving holiday destination that it is today.

From Alicante airport, take the N332 road to Cartagena. Stay on this road for approximately 44Km, or 35 minutes, driving at normal speed. By-pass Santa Pola, La Marina, Guardamar, La Mata, Torrevieja, and Punta Prima. Pass through the next small roundabout, and you will be approaching a slip road to the right which is signposted for Playa Flamenca.

The easiest option is to get a Playa Flamenca airport transfer from either the nearest airport which is Alicante airport or Murcia airport to the south. Once at the airport you have a range of different airport transfer options to Playa Flamenca including private shuttle buses, taxis or Playa Flamenca car hire.

WHAT TO DO IN PLAYA FLAMENCA

There are a range of water sports for which you can hire equipment at several locations along the beach to hiring a boat for a day trip to Tabarca island or just a fishing trip to horse riding and walking. To fill the gap a little you may want to do a bit of shopping. Playa Flamenca has a well known Saturday market easy to reach from your Playa Flamenca holiday rental villa or even Torrevieja to the Habanaras shopping centre.
