Beaches of Orihuela Costa

Orihuela Costa has 16 kilometres of coastline which varies from rugged coastline with crystal-clear water to fine white sandy beaches. These beaches are ideal for water-sports, fishing etc., or for just relaxing and enjoying the wonderful Orihuela Costa weather.

Orihuela Costa can boast some of the best beaches in Spain. Year after year Orihuela gets awarded with “Q for Quality” flags, which are internationally recognised as the highest award which can be given to beaches, meaning they have passed a multitude of tests and are among the best in the world.

The first beaches to be awarded with these “Q” flags are Cala Capitan, Cala las Estacas and Playa de la Glea. Orihuela Costa already holds four blue flags and eleven "Qualitur” flags, and is the resort to hold most flags in the whole of the Valencian Community.

WHAT IS “Q” FOR QUALITY? The “Q” award is the seal of Spanish Tourism Quality. Tourist products with the “Q” mark meet necessary quality requirements and clients’ demands. The “Q” denotes prestige, reliability, commitment and distinction. Its objective is to achieve recognition by consumers and tour operators. Establishments eligible for the “Q” for Quality Tourism designation in Spain are: hotels, restaurants, travel agencies, campsites, nature areas, tourist offices, convention bureaux, conference centres, beaches, golf courses, rural accommodation, ski resorts, regional tourist boards and active tourism centres.

Orihuela Costa - Punta Prima

This very attractive and popular beach is bordered on the north by the beach of Náufragos (Torrevieja) and on the south by Playa Flamenca.

The narrow cove beach is a favourite of the regular holiday-makers and is divided into two levels with a length of 170 meters by 14 wide and it is accessed by ramps and stairs. It is planned to install a lift this year which will facilitate access for the elderly and physically handicapped to the beach area. This will not only provide a much needed service but will hopefully assist in the gaining of a first Blue Flag for the beach next year.

This beach also boasts the full range of facilities that one would expect on an Orihuela Costa beach together with a bus stop and public telephone.

Orihuela Costa - Dehesa de Campoamor

The Urbanisation Dehesa de Campoamor is a green oasis on the Mediterranean coast. The beaches in Campoamor are also very attractive and popular particularly during the summer time with Spanish tourists - mostly from Murcia, Alicante and Madrid, and also with tourists from the rest of Europe, particularly from Germany and Great Britain.

The beach at Playa de La Glea, also known as the “Big Beach”, is the largest one in Campoamor and it is also the best equipped, with a First-Aid booth manned by the Red Cross, sanitation and other facilities. This beach is awarded the coveted ‘Blue Flag’ every year. This beach is not only popular with foreign tourists but also with residents from Orihuela Costa and Torrevieja, who flock to this beach every year.

The beach at Playa de Barranco Rubio, also known as the “Small Beach”, is obviously smaller than the Playa de la Glea. Traditionally this beach is mainly visited by tourists from the interior in Murcia and Alicante regions and these people tend to visit Campoamor every year so they all know each other, which makes for a very friendly and familiar atmosphere.
