A visit to the beach is a must during summer. You might struggle to find somewhere to park in August but when you get there it is all worth it. This area does have some stunning beaches to visit, clean white to golden sand, good facilities and a nice cooling breeze to help with that tan.
All the beaches are well maintained, cleaned each day and regularly inspected. The care taken to keep them this way has been rewarded by giving all eleven of Orihuela’s beaches the Valencian Qualitur seal of approval. In total 141 beaches in 42 municipalities have Qualitur status.
Six of the beaches on the Orihuela coast also have blue flags: Playa Flamenca, Cala Capitán, Cabo Roig, Campoamor, Barranco Rubio and Mil Palmeras. Spain has one sixth of all the blue flags awarded for 521 of its beaches and 84 of its sports ports.
