Pilar de la Horadada: Pilar de la Horadada is located 3km inland from the beach at El Mojon. The resort is approximately 15 minutes drive to the east of Murcia airport and approximately 40 minutes drive to the south of Alicante airport and is ideally located close to the safe sandy beaches of the Mar Menor. The region is largely agricultural; surrounded by market gardens, orchards, citrus groves and pastoral farms.
Beaches: The town is close to a coastline of fine sand and clear water beaches, interspersed by attractive inlets, all offering a full range of services. The beach at Mil Palmeras is ideal for sailing enthusiasts, linking up with the Rincón and Puerto inlets; the latter with a promenade that comes alive on hot summer nights. Las Villas, the beach behind Torre Horadada marina, is the longest beach followed by a smaller beach at La Mojón, which reaches the border with Murcia.
Cultural Attractions: There is a watchtower on the coast, typical of the many that line the Spanish Mediterranean coastline. A settlement developed around the tower, which became the summer residence for the inhabitants of Orihuela; Murcia and the Vega Baja del Segura are also both worthwhile day trips. The Archaeological and Ethnological Museum museum has five sections, dedicated to the environment, to fossils, numismatics and ethnology. On display are the most typical flora of the municipality, a collection of metals, assault weaponry, pieces from Iberian textile mills and objects made from esparto and the typical 'Pilareña' dress.
