Are the beaches on the Orihuela Costa and Costa Blanca open?

The Orihuela Costa boasts 11 idyllic Blue Flag accredited sandy beaches and coves that cover 16 km´s of Spain´s eastern Mediterranean coastline.

All Orihuela Costa beaches are open to members of the public with rigorous social distancing guidelines in place to maintain public health and safety. A lifeguard service operates daily during the summer months and you don´t need to wear a face mask when you´re on the beach.

Each beach has an allocated occupation limit dependent on the size of the beach to enable sunseekers to comply with social distancing requirements. To the north, Benidorm´s popular beaches have a combined capacity for 33,476 people, and to date, that figure has not been met.

Complete details of all public safety measures are posted at entry and exit points on each beach in the region, including the beaches in La Zenia, Cabo Roig, Punta Prima and Playa Flamenca.
