Discover Playa Flamenca

Playa Flamenca is part of Orihuela Costa. This popular beach resort is approximately 7.5 km from the city of Torrevieja. It is a lively destination where a large number of expatriates live. This means that many nationalities have influenced the area.

Its origins

Many construction contractors from Flanders, Belgium, came to this region in the 1980s. Many new build projects were constructed and the urbanisation was given a name. Since the projects where on the beach (playa in Spanish) and the construction contractors were Flemish (flamenca in Spanish), these two Spanish words were used.

Playa Flamenca is subdivided into two parts: Playa Flamenca I and Playa Flamenca II.

These days, it is a destination sought out by many. Many British and German people have a second home here, but during the past few years many Belgians, French, Scandinavians, etc. have found their personal paradise here under the Spanish sun.

Vitamin Sea

The ‘Cala Mosca’ is a small but pleasant bay that is protected by rocky walls on both sides. You immediately feel protected. ‘Cala Mosca’ is linked to the neighbouring ‘Cala Estaca’ through the coastal promenade. This promenade can also be easily recognised by the sundial that is depicted there.

The ‘Cala Estaca’ is a calm natural bay with fine golden sand. The area has a handful of bars and restaurants. This beach has all types of facilities. There are, for example, lifeguards and a chiringuito or beach bar and recliners and parasols can be hired during the summer. There is also sufficient parking facility and a diversity of fitness equipment. ‘Cala Estaca’ is also a blue flag beach.


Sporting aficionados will find much that they will enjoy in Playa Flamenca. It is where the municipal sports centre (Centro Deportivo Municipal) of Orihuela Costa can be found.
