 La Marina Village

La Marina Village and Playa can be found 27 km south of Alicante,just off the N332 at the bottom of the hill that leads up to La Marina Urbanisation only 20 minutes South of Alicante airport and its fabulous city. The Village is a very popular area for all nationalities offering an abundance of facilities including bars, shops, restaurants, banks, solicitors, doctors, dentists, hairdressers, beauticians, a gym, vets, all types of tradesmen and lots more. The beautiful blue flag long sandy beaches and protected pine forest/nature reserve of Village are much loved by the locals and visitors alike.

All major towns and cities are within easy reach with a good choice of prestigious golf courses easily accessible. For the ladies there are an abundance of shops and shopping centres in the major cities of Alicante and Elche

There is an abundance of wildlife close at hand with the Salinas de Santa Pola having one of the largest flocks of flamingos in Spain and the famous El Hondo nature reserve close by.
With mountains inland and salt lakes to either side the area has its own microclimate with little rain. The World Health Organisation recognises it as the healthiest place to live and stay in Europe.

No doubt, this fact played a part in La Marina recently being listed in the top 10 best emigration destinations by "Homes Overseas" magazine (July 2006 edition).

The Costa Blanca coastline is world famous for its excellent beaches and golfing facilities. However, there is so much more to do than just bask in the sunshine. This part of Spain has been occupied by many different peoples over the centuries, each leaving their own historical influences on the area. As a result, the region is home to some stunning cultural landmarks: castles overlooking the sea; ancient villages; impressive cities, all built and added to by many conquering races. There is also some stunning countryside, including the largest palm grove in Europe at nearby Elche.
