A Guide to Villamartin, Alicante

It comprises several smaller urbanisations all built around a Villamartin Golf Course and a beautiful traditionally Spanish plaza. 

Villamartin is located 4 kilometres inland from the coast at La Zenia and just 10 kilometres from the well known and popular coastal City of Torrevieja and so you will never be short of a beach to visit.

Beaches

Villamartin is located 4 kilometres inland from the Orihuela Costa at La Zenia and has many stunning beaches within just a short drive. 

La Zenia itself offers two main beautiful beaches; Cala Bosque and Cala Cerrada. Both carry blue flag status which means they are known to be safe and clean with good amenities. There is a good selection of bars and restaurants set just off the beach. Both beaches are set in coves where the water is shallow making them a great place for families with children.

Cala Bosque is the larger beach of the two and offers over 27,000m2 of beautiful pristine sand. Although La Zenia is a popular beach destination getting very busy in the summer months it is large enough that there is always still plenty of space.

La Zenia

To the south of La Zenia you will find Cabo Roig, another stunning blue flag beach with a beautiful promenade perfect for a seaside stroll. It boasts a wonderful marina with over two hundred moorings as well as a restaurant next to a beautiful sandy beach attracting people from all over.

You then get to the famous Mar Menor salt water lagoon - just a 20 minute drive from your property in Villamartin. The Mar Menor is separated from the Mediterranean Sea by the famous La Manga strip, a long stretch of land with the Mar Menor on one side and the Mediterranean Sea on the other.
