This glorious part of Spain enjoys the best climate on the mainland with over 320 days of sunshine, beating Costa Almeria and the Costa del Sol. The area has over 100kms of sandy beaches and rocky coves and many of the beaches have the coveted European Blue Flag signifying cleanliness and safe bathing. Harbours can be found all along the coastline offering all kinds of services for sailing and boating enthusiasts.
The amazing vivid blue Mediterranean waters with lovely sandy beaches, the old towns and villages with their narrow streets, their restaurants and bars where one can sit and relax outside. Because of the wonderful all-year round climate (average temp in Jan and Feb is 17ºC) mean that the area is deservedly popular because it is generally considered to offer a better quality of life.
A healthy lifestyle coupled with easy, access via budget airlines to either Alicante or Murcia (San Javier) airports make a convincing argument to choose this lovely area to live, holiday or invest in. There is soon to be a 3rd airport opening in Corvera offering even more choice for travellers.
The landscape and coastline is breathtaking, with white sandy beaches and mountain backdrops – something for all tastes. This is primarily a rural area with great swathes of orange and yellow during the growing season of the citrus fruits, complemented by a modern infrastructure with all the home comforts you would expect in the UK. There are high tech hospitals, excellent schools, efficient transport and emergency services.
When considering a new place to live or buying a holiday home - good healthcare systems are always a consideration and Spain is well known for offering great facilities. The Torrevieja Hospital has been awarded the accolade of being one of the best hospitals in the country several times. For those seeking more natural treatments there are the famous salt flats and therapeutic mud baths renowned from early times for their healing power.
An abundance of sporting and leisure amenities including a proposed Paramount Theme Park ensure that no-one need ever be bored. Hundreds of restaurants from simple ‘Menu del Dia’ to gourmet establishments cater for all tastes in food. Traditional Spanish food is simple and unpretentious and offered “Al fresco” making the experience all the more delightful. We can all imagine enjoying a “paella”, sipping our “vino” or “sangria”, watching a sun go down over the sea.
