Perfect if you want to enjoy lazy days in a seaside town that retains its Spanish personality with easy access to the region’s cultural centres and unique natural surroundings.
A family resort town situated at the far southern end of Spain’s Costa Blanca, Torre de la Horadada will tick all the right boxes for anyone looking to enjoy the seaside lifestyle and have access to great amenities. Best of all you’ll get a warm welcome in a town which hasn’t suffered from excessive development. Relax in the town’s squares to enjoy life at a typically Spanish pace, enjoying tapas, cerveza or just sitting and watching the world go by.
Nature lovers will find much to admire in the surrounding area. Just follow the scent of rosemary and thyme up the riverbed where you will find diverse species of wild orchids, dwarf palms and wild olive trees together with nesting water birds, wildcats and even eagles. Closer to home on the seafront lies the historic watchtower that once provided defence against pirate raids. Today you will see just a relaxed Blue Flag beach with crystal clear waters – perfect for diving or just dipping your toes in.
In Torre de la Horadada, you’ll find a town that is just as popular with the Spanish as the English and Irish expats who make up 30 percent of its 2,500 inhabitants. Unlike some towns on the Orihuela Costa, this remains a town with a strong Spanish identity.
Much of the housing stock was built during the building boom at the beginning of the century and you will find a range reasonably priced modern apartments and villas. To the north and south are urbanisations which are still within walking distance of the beach.
The recent expansion of housing brought with it a host of useful amenities including supermarkets, bars, restaurants and a marina alongside the Blue Flag beaches. Away from the coast you will also find Lo Monte, a campsite with excellent swimming pools, a spa and gym.
Torre de la Horadada is within easy reach of two airports, with Murcia just fifteen minutes’ drive south and Alicante under an hour to the north. Although public transport is limited here, the town is situated off both the coast road and the motorway, connecting you with inland towns and cities.
The town has its own public medical centre plus a dentist and pharmacies. For anything else you’ll need to make the short journey to the hospitals at Torrevieja.
Cost of Living
You’ll find Torre de la Horadada is a great mid-range option, compared to some of the towns to the north. And with easy access to major shopping facilities you should be able to keep prices within budget.
