Staying in La Zenia holiday lettings

Lovely little La Zenia is anchored on a small inlet of cotton-coloured sand that stretches between 2 rocky headlands, midway along the Costa Blanca. With its happening seaside walks and palm-studded blocks, it magnetises sun-worshippers to the Spanish coast all year round. It's laden with stylish villa rentals and chic holiday homes that offer access to blue-flag beaches and manicured golf courses, not to mention countless international eateries, tapas bars and lively sports pubs. What's more, the proximity of Murcia – topped by an imposing fortress – and the shimmering beaches of buzzing Torrevieja mean there are plenty of day trips on the menu to boot.

How to get around

Travelling around La Zenia

Getting around La Zenia and the greater Costa Blanca region shouldn't be too hard. The roads along the coast are well-maintained, which is why many travellers opt to rent a car to take them back and forth from the airport and that La Zenia holiday home. The good news is that the resort itself is walkable, with most of the main bars, sights, restaurants and beaches linked by a palm-shaded promenade that hugs the Mediterranean Sea. If you don't have your own wheels but want to hit nearby towns like Torrevieja, you'll also find regular and efficient bus services running up and down the Costa Blanca.

Food & drink 

The food of La Zenia

A flamenco-esque flurry of tasty tapas awaits in the resorts of the Costa Blanca, so platters of shiny green olives, chilli-topped shrimps, spicy Spanish potatoes and Iberian hams are all the norm when hunger strikes. But La Zenia has also been undeniably influenced by its resident crowd of expats from all over Europe and beyond. That means you can start the day with a classic full English fry-up, lunch on German schnitzel and end the night with a bowl of bubbling Indian curry. Prefer to cook for yourself in your private La Zenia holiday villa? That's doable, too, especially when the Saturday food market is open for business.
