A choice of beaches
Playa De Orihuela is really made up of a long line of sandy beaches, with Punta Prima in the north and Mil Palmeras in the south. Most are backed by their very own promenades, with restaurants and bars to choose from. You’ll find plenty of space to lay out your towels.
Trip to historic Orihuela
Playa De Orihuela sits along the coast, but while you’re here, you might want to take a trip to the inland town of Orihuela. It’s about 40 minutes’ drive and jam-packed with medieval sights! Check out the ruins of the hilltop Castillo de Orihuela and see the epic Salvador and Santa Maria Cathedral.
Exploring Costa Blanca
Get to know this corner of Spain by visiting the nearby cities. Drop into the historic Cartagena, where ancient and modern architecture knock elbows. See the 15th century cathedral in Murcia, or maybe time your visit to see the brilliant Holy Week parades over the Easter weekend.
