Close to the apartment
It’s just a 5 minute walk into the centre of Almoradi where there is a church and town square shaded by trees, where local people relax and have a drink. The square is a real social meeting place for people of all ages to congregate. There are approx 50 bars, café’s and restaurants (including Spainish, British & Irish) all within minutes walk from the apartment and on a Saturday the town hosts a local market with fresh food and local wares. For a light bite I recommend Cafe Vienna on Calle San Emigdio, for great value. For an early morning cafe con leche join the throngs of locals in cafe Tropicana on Calle Cervantes. For great tapas try Angel bar on Calle Pablo Picasso and for a great steak and a bit of Irish banter try Redz bar & restaurant on Calle Canalejas. If you are looking for live music try the Greenhouse on Calle Mayor between Bar Elite and the Welsh bar, the Red Dragon. There is usually a good mix of Spanish and British bands playing. For an early morning cafe con leche join the throngs of locals in cafe Tropicana on Calle Cervantes,Comic bar where the owner is very friendly or treat yourself to a decadent pastry in Epinosa Bakery at Calle 9 de Octobre
The local resorts of Guadamar (15km) with its beautiful beaches and Torreveja (20km) with beaches, a harbour and a more lively atmosphere are close by.
The apartments are located close to the popular golf courses of La Finca plus another 8 courses all within a 30km radius.

Almoradi is located on the northern side of the Segura River, on the southern Costa Blanca, it is only a 10 minute drive to the beautiful sandy beaches of Guadamar and 20 minutes drive to the more lively town of Torreveja with it’s harbor and bustling atmosphere.
Almoradi is well situated for access from the AP7 motorway and that also makes getting to Alicante and Murcia airports easy.
In recent times there has been increased interest in the town. It has to be said Almoradi does offer something a little different from that of many of coastal towns it is quieter, & has retained much of its inherent culture & tradition. Unlike the coastal resorts that become ghost towns out of holiday season, Almoradi stays vibrant and alive all year round
Sporting enthusiasts are still well catered for here, with the town boasting a good municipal swimming pool & other facilities. Almoradi is no more than a 20 minute drive from a good selection of golf courses with La Finca & la Marquesa clubs significantly closer. There are also 2 waterparks close by.
There are many fiestas (festivals) throughout Almoradis calendar, some of which are a real spectacle & well worth a look. The cuisine is another major bonus though made up of mainly traditional Spanish fare although international tastes are also catered for. You will find bars and restaurants catering for most tastes from traditional Spanish food through to Chinese and even your full English breakfast for those missing the taste of home
Almoradi boasts a thriving, bustling traditional market every Saturday morning. If thats not enough for you, you will also find Dolores holds a market every Friday morning and Catral holds one every Saturday morning .
Almoradi is also well known for its mild climate & the entire region enjoys sunshine for in excess of 320 days per year. The sun is at its hottest during the summer months, with temperatures rarely falling below 30°C (86°F). Winters are typically very mild with averages hovering around 18°C (64°F).
The apartment is a short walk to the local supermarket on Calle Espana. The are several great bars just off the town square inclusing Cafe Vienna, Tropicana, the Red Dragon & the Greenhouse which has live music every weekend.
he best supermarket is the large Mercadona at 17 Calle Comunidad Valencia (on the same street as the theatre). Try the local bakery San Andres, a few mins walk from the apartment, on Calle Communidad Valencia, for a fresh baguette or pastry for breakfast in the morning.
