About the property

Apartment in La Marina Village, Costa Blanca - Sunny Balcony, Access to Roof Space with Wonderful Sea Views, Walk to the Beach

This fourth (top) floor apartment, is ideal all year round holiday accommodation. Lift access. Views to the mountains, village and sea. Quietly located at the end of the village with all local amenities nearby. Walk to the unspoilt, blue flag beach. La Marina is a Spanish working village although its coastal location invites visitors from all over Spain, UK & the rest of Northern Europe. There are Restaurants & Tapas Bars, Bakeries, Supermarket, Banks, Pharmacy & various other Shops. Within 5 kms there are several larger Spanish supermarkets (& an Iceland!). Buses stop on the main street with routes along the coast in both directions to Alicante, Guardamar, Torrevieja & Murcia & inland to Elche & surrounding villages. The beautiful unspoilt beaches, sand dunes & pine forest stretch for more than 20km from Santa Pola, continuing down to Guardamar marina & towards Orihuela Costa. Plan any trips with the help of the local tourist office in the village.

About Joan Barlow

We are from the UK and lived in North Wales until we recently retired to Spain. We now live in the inland village of Daya Nueva which is about a fifteen minute drive from La Marina. We have had a long association with La Marina & the surrounding area & bought this apartment in 2010. My sister lives in San Miguel which is not far away & she usually looks after the place although we are also contactable if needed. We have tried to make the apartment comfortable and inviting, exactly what we would hope to find ourselves - home from home on the inside and a great location outside.

Joan Barlow purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Joan Barlow chose Elche

We first bought a property in La Marina in 1993 & spent many happy times visiting. However in 2006 we decided it was time for a change, sold up & spent a couple of years looking all along the coast of Spain & the Algarve for another place. Although we did find some nice locations we realised that the La Marina area, in our view, was hard to beat. The apartment is positioned in a Spanish village with great infrastructure whilst retaining real Spanish charm. There are miles of gorgeous unspoilt beaches, pine forests & sand dunes along the coast to explore. We have 2 local airports - Alicante 20 mins north & Murcia 40 mins south. Both airports are served by budget airlines with journey times from the UK no more than 2 &1/2 hrs. We enjoy a great climate with hot summers & mild winters.

What makes this apartment unique

We think the location of this apartment is one of its best points. Instead of being in a large development (urbanisation) its situation in the village of La Marina is virtually frontline. There are only fields, forest & agriculture between us and the sea. Also there are local Spanish owned bars, restaurants and shops. No big chain takeaways! However there are a couple of British run bars/restaurants. If you want a relaxing holiday and don't want to venture far then you have everything you need within walking distance. The urbanisation of La Marina is about 4kms up hill from the village and has many more eating/drinking opportunities and 2 large complexes with swimming pools. If you want to explore further, either by bus or car, there are numerous places to visit both coastal and inland.

On a clear day, from the roof, you can see the Island of Tabarca, well worth a visit. Fortified as a prison camp in the 18th century & now home to a small fishing community, this & many other trips are found in the tourist office in the village. The walk to the beach takes from 10 to 25 mins depending on route, time of year and capability, to drive takes 3/4 mins. A beach bus runs July to Sep. There are amazing beaches, sand dunes, pine forest, stunning walks & scenery along the coast line.


Alicante Airport is 20 minutes north, Murcia Airport 35 mins south. Car hire is not essential in the immediate vicinity however if you wish to explore further afield you may want to consider it. Hire cars can be collected at the airport from the usual companies or should you wish to have a car just for a few days then local hire is available in the village of La Marina.


Alicante is the main city (32kms north), very cosmopolitan but still authentically Spanish, particularly in the old town which houses the Castle & many bars/restaurants. The port comes alive around 10pm with its trendy bars & exclusive restaurants. Guardamar is 9 kms south with its beautiful sand dune beaches, weekly market & lots of places to eat & drink. Guardamar has much to explore including their parks which are well worth a visit. Buses will take you to both these places from La Marina.

Further Details:

In the village there are several small bars offering traditional tapas & "one plate" meals. There are also restaurants offering full menus & a few interesting shops, also banks with ATMs. There is a store which sells English toiletries & a separate pharmacy with very helpful English speaking staff - if needed.
