La Zenia
La Zenia is a famous resort situated on the Costa Blanca, forming part of the coast of Orihuela.
It’s a well-situated resort, allowing you to fly into both Alicante or Murcia airports, which are both respectively 30 and 20 minutes drive from La Zenia.

Beaches
La Zenia boasts a fine blue flag beach with great facilities for both families with children, and those looking for water sports.

Eating out & entertainment
La Zenia is a popular resort for both Irish holiday-makers and residents and is home to the famous Paddys Point bar, one of the best known bars along the Costa Blanca.

Excursions


During your stay in La Zenia you can take an amiable trip along the coastal road, visiting the nearby towns of Torrevieja, Murcia, Cartagena and Alicante.



Shopping
La Zenia has a good selection of shops and amenities, including a pharmacy, bank, a well-stocked supermarket and a good selection of bars and restaurants.

Golf
There are three superb golf courses nearby: Villamartin, Campoamor and Las Ramblas.

Leisure & recreation
Within easy reach is the Orihuela Costa Resort Complex with its outstanding leisure facilities including an Olympic sized swimming pool, tennis, squash, a well equipped gym, bowling and a bar and restaurant.

The surrounding countryside is abundant with beautiful orange and lemon groves and close by you will find two lakes where flamingos and other birds nest.

Cuisine
The local cuisine is typically that of the Costa Blanca, which combines delicacies from both land and the Mediterranean Sea. Many civilizations have lived in this area (Celts, Iberians, Greeks, Romans, Muslims), all of which have all left their mark on the gastronomy.

The diet is a healthy Mediterranean one; the Costa Blanca is rich in fish, vegetables, olive-oil, rice and fruit and the ingredients which are all used to prepare delicious, healthy dishes, such as Paella Valenciana, Arroz Negro (black rice), Arroz al horno (Oven baked rice), Arroz a banda (fish and rice stew), Arroz del Señoret (Princes rice).

Aside from seafood, typical dishes include succulent lamb chops, rabbit in garlic, roast leg of lamb with garlic and fresh rosemary, and home made sausages and black puddings.

If you have a sweet tooth then you will enjoy the local homemade pastries and deserts that the whole region is famous for. Or Jijona ice cream (Nougat), which is made with the almonds of the region.

Whilst in La Zenia we recommend you try the local wine selection on offer, especially Jalon wine, which is of high quality with a lovely bouquet.

There are many international restaurants in the town offering a wide choice of different cuisines from around the world.

Nightlife & entertainment
The bustling town of Torrevieja is just a ten minute drive away, with its huge variety of options to eat and drink, a busy marina and lively evening market.

Climate
As you would expect on the Costa Blanca, the weather is fantastic – with over 300 days of sunshine a year, low humidity and mild winters.

La Zenia review

The two Blue Flag beaches are fantastic, very clean and the facilities were good. Both had beach bars which sold food, drink and ice creams. The toilets were clean and well maintained. La Zenia had some nice bars and restaurants, we liked most of the ones on Calle San Antonio near the Red Sea Cafe which were under the Apartmentos La Zenia complex. A 5 minute walk along the coast path either way took you two more beaches with nice little restaurants, bars and shops. Paddys Point was ok, full of Irish and British, we much preferred the Spanish Tapas bars - but that's down to personal preference!


Costa Blanca reviews

The beaches were well kept and very clean. The quality of the seawater was excellent and very clear, we found no sea urchins or jelly fish and there was only a minimal amount of seaweed. La Zenia beach was safe to swim and play in the water, we were warned about the undercurrents, however life guards were vigilant making sure nobody strayed near the rocks. The beach was a beautiful soft white sand, with no rocks or pebbles. The coastal path was worth getting up early for and taking a walk along the coast to Cabo Roig and watching the sun rise over the sea - breathtaking.
