La Zenia is located on the Costa Blanca South just south of the major town of Torrevieja, forming part of the Orihuela Costa. The area is a small but busy beach tourist resort.
Zenia Beach (Cala Bosque) has white sands, crystal clear waters and a promenade that starts at its southern edge. The facilities are varied and very up to date in this area due to its residential predominance (Including disabled access). The beach of La Zenia is ideal for both windsurfing and relaxing, the beach offers deckchairs and umbrellas to rent for the day at a reasonable price.
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 during the warmer periods of the year. 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 making La Zenia one of the more popular destinations along the Orihuela Costa.
La Zenia has many restaurants, bars, shops and good facilities such as La Zenia Boulevard (Alicante’s largest shopping center with over 150 shops!) due to the large number of people who live here all the year round. It is also a popular base to play on the award-winning golf courses located nearby.
Close by is the Orihuela Costa Resort Complex with leisure facilities including an Olympic sized swimming pool, tennis, squash, a well-equipped gym, bowling and a bar and restaurant.
