Costa Blanca Resorts - Playa Flamenca Orihuela Costa

Playa Flamenca: One of the most desirable resorts along the Orihuela Costa section of the southern Costa Blanca, Playa Flamenca attracts thousands of holidaymakers each year, and has also attracted hundreds of Brits and North Europeans to purchase holiday homes, or even settle in this beautiful area of Spain.

Only becoming built up since the early 1970’s, when some Flemish investors saw the potential of the area, Playa Flamenca, was little more than a patch of barren land, prior to 1972.
