Strolling along the 6 beaches of Orihuela Costa.

This route starts at Playa Caleta de Cabo Roig
. This is a beach that has the Q of Tourist Quality and Blue Flag status. This beach is perfect all year round as it is very sheltered in the winter (Nov-Feb) and sun lovers are seen here year round. On a Sunday, throughout the whole year there is live music next to the Chiringuito (beach bar serving food and drinks) on this beach, something not to be missed! In summer there is a rental service for scooters and umbrellas. To the south, this fantastic beach borders the beach of Dehesa de Campoamor.


500m from Playa de la Caleta is a small Marina; Puerto Deportivo de Cabo Roig. Right on the beach you will find the popular restaurant La Bahia, a great place for a romantic candlelit dinner and Cabo Roig Tower Restaurant - the perfect place to watch the sunset!
After passing the marina you enter a less saturated area as there are no sandy beaches for about 2km. This is a lovely part of the walking path where you will usually people fishing and people doing sports.

Continuing along the rock path you arrive at Cala Capitán Beach (Cabo Roig). Honestly, it's our favorite beach in this area because it has fine sand, very clear water, and a shallow island, perfect for families with children. You can come to this beach in the middle of August and be more or less comfortable without having the neighbor's towel on yours! It is an extensive beach and has the Q of Tourist Quality and Blue Flag status.

Leaving Cala Capitán you arrive at an area more similar to a normal promenade that will take you to on to the long La Zenia Beach. It is a very wide beach in which there is everything including a volleyball area, beach bar, hammock rental and ALWAYS PLENTY OF PEOPLE. Its sand is very fine and the water is very clear, but in the summer months it is advisable to go first thing. This beach is where the popular Hotel La Zenia is and there are several places to eat including La Mirada, one of the most popular tapas restaurants in the area which overlooks the beach and sea.

This leads on to Cala Cerrada Beach, La Zenia. It is a small beach with semi-urban sand and takes you on to Playa Flamenca (Cala Estaca). The next beach is also one of the busiest in the area. Its name "flamenco" comes from the first people who started living in that area - a Belgian-Flemish community. This beach has the Q of Quality and a wide seafront.

Flamenco Beach (Cala Mosca) is where this tour end. It is also in this sandy cove where the promenade ends. This tour is made by the area that is land. You can also continue along the dirt path, past the nudist beach and you would arrive at Punta Prima Beach. In Punta Prima there is a fantastic Chiringuito with chill out lounge where you can enjoy the beautiful sunsets. Above here is the Punta Prima Restaurant well known to host many special events like weddings and communions.
