Description:Orihuela Costa is the 10 mile-long coastline located outside the inland town of Orihuela, situated on the southern part of the Costa Blanca. The area consists of beaches with coves and is lined with palm trees. There are also almond and dry olive groves.

The town of Orihuela is itself an historic town. There are 14 historical sites in total, including Catedral del San Salvador y Santa Maria and the Palacio Rubalcava. There are several residential developments in the area, such as Cabo Roig, Dehesa de Campoamor, La Zenia, Playa Flamenca and Punta Prima. These areas have gained popularity with both Spanish and foreign homebuyers.

There are not many British here but this will all change.  Numerous developments are springing up here and the biggest buyers have been the British.  The yields achievable here are promising even though not exciting.  What I do find exciting however, is the opportunity for capital gain.  Once developed the property prices will mirror the prices being achieved in the rest of Costa Blanca.
