'Sardinas' by the dozen – with a cold beer – why not ?

A dozen sardines, enjoyed with a cold beer, is a true memory for many of pleasant evenings spent in Spain. With the 'lockdown' now in its 4 th week, of release, life can be seen to be returning towards normality at least – and what a better way to celebrate than to enjoy one of those summer combo's that we never tire of. Throughout the Orihuela Costa a wide choice of fish and sea food is usually enjoyed by visitors at this time of year and thankfully 2020 looks like this treat will remain within our grasp. A busy night was witnessed by all who came to join Paco and his team – hopefully this will continue throughout the Summer months for...

Ready to tee off again ? Golf Courses begin to re-open on the Costa Blanca

Fortunately, golf here on the Orihuela Costa was one of the first sports allowed to be played as the early stages of the lockdown de-escalation began. Golf courses in the area were reopened in May and we are pleased to say that due to responsible behaviour and respect of the current Covid 19 rules in place, the re-opening has been a success. Of the 3 Quara courses, Villamartin has been the first to open to the public and members alike, which will be followed by La Finca Golf & Hotel Resort, scheduled to reopen at the end of July. Las Ramblas will be the last of the 3 courses to open and is expected to be fully reopen sometime in...

Orihuela Costa beaches open with social distancing guidelines

New signage has been placed at most beach entrances and simple to follow guidelines are in place to control the Covid-19 situation and hopefully protect users of the beaches so that a return close to 'normality' can be enjoyed for the Summer ahead. Ball games are in the main not allowed, and neither are use of lilo's and inflatables. Beach users are being also asked to respect sensible social distancing when entering the beach and picking their location to 'plot up'. Life guards, 'virus control' agents and local police are all working together to ensure safe beach usage, and separate areas have been sectioned off for walking and sitting...

Beach fishing again – what a pleasure to live off the land / sea !!!

With the beaches open again on the Costa Blanca, we have seen a return to the ever-popular pastime of beach front sea fishing. Competitions are often organised in the late evenings once beach tourists depart, up and down the coastline and also an 'early bird' fisherman can be seen appearing on the beach as the sun rises nice and early to try their luck. One that we came across recently was very pleased with his early morning return of a dozen lovely 'Lubina' (Sea Bass) – which are quite often plentiful on the 'Orihuela Costa' - a little 'local' knowledge regarding the recent weather, sea conditions etc obviously help, but with...

At the beginning of today, Monday 8 th of June, almost half of Spain entered into the phase III stage of lockdown release in which shopping centres have finally been able to re-open for business - something that has been long awaited by many in need of some retail therapy that simply can´t be found online.
