La Zenia is an amazing destination set in the heart of Costa Blanca, Spain.
Access is easy as it is serviced by two airports: Alicante which is 45 minutes drive to the North and San Javier, Murcia which is 15 minutes to the south. La Zenia is a coastal location set between Alicante city and Cartagena and has two major roads passing through, the AP7 motorway, the speedy way to get places and the N332 which runs along the coast offering the traveller unrivalled scenery and views of the beauty of this region of Spain. La Zenia is also 10 km from the Spanish city of Torrevieja with its variety of sporting activities, cultural events, festivals and shopping. For those thinking of buying property in Spain and looking to start "Living the dream' this is the perfect location, and for those wanting a nice holiday home or that lovely break away, look no further - La Zenia really has it all.
Beaches: La Zenia has a wonderful beaches in the immediate vicinity, the beautiful La Zenia beach which is large and spacious, offers a children's play area, a beach bar and is overlooked by low cliffs and has the delightful La Mirada Restaurant & Bar right beside it. The La Zenia Hotel just a few minutes walk away. The "La Mirada" offers beautiful vistas, seating areas both indoors and outdoors with views across the Mediterranean Sea; an Ideal place for a cold beer or a plate of tapas after a hard day on the beach. The staff are very attentive and the service is always excellent. There are many other beaches very close by including the small safe beach of Playa Flamenca and the sheltered beach of Cabo Roig with its wonderful selection of water sports and boating activities.
Views: Many of the properties of La Zenia have beautiful views across the Mediterranean Sea and if your property does not have that, a two minute stroll is all that is needed to sit on some lovely strategically placed bench and enjoy the gentle roll of the waves. The La Zenia roundabout, also knows as the Paddys Point roundabout is 300 meters to the sea.
Good Shopping: La Zenia is home to the Zenia Boulevard, a large American style shopping Mall opened in September 2012 but with a Mediterranean feel. This mall is over 160,000 square meters and has more than 1,502 shopping outlets. The second floor of the mall has a large choice of restaurants and a huge area for children's activities. There are many well-known High Street retailers here trading side by side with designer stores such as Guess, Desigual and Via de Milano. One of my wife's personal favourites is Zara Clothing which offers quality ladies, gents and children's fashion at generous discount to what you would pay for Zara in other mainstream European destinations. Zara Home Furnishing also has some lovely pieces for the home at very good prices. The shoe shops here are fantastic where you can buy those excellent quality and design that the Spanish Shoe designers are famous for. There are also matching leather bags, and the prices are a bargain for the excellent quality. The shopping centre could be a lovely day and evening out for the young and the old, with shopping for everyone, lovely restaurants to eat in and to enjoy some of the many evening free entertainments of various live music performers, magicians, Zumba dancers and other shows.
Besides this shopping mall there are other beautiful shops in Zenia Golf Commercial Centre on the roundabout. Ponderosa is a beautiful shop which offers a range of high quality jewellery, cards, household items and unusual items that would make lovely quality presents. The staff here are very friendly and very helpful in helping you choose something for a special person or a special occasion. Ponderosa has been here since the time we opened up so that's a good sign right there. Right next to Ponderosa is "Looking Good Boutique" which, I'm told, offers unique fashion and accessories including some beautiful "Haute Couture" from designer Josef Ribkoff. They often feature personally selected up- and- coming design labels which are also high quality. For the slightly higher prices this boutique is a must for dressing for that special event.
Evening entertainment: Oh where to begin?!! From live bands to Musicals to comedians and drag artists the biggest problem is narrowing down what you want to see on a certain evening in Spain. Paddy's Point Bar at Zenia Golf Commercial Centre on the roundabout is a personal favourite. They have live bands every evening featuring traditional Irish, rock n roll and contemporary music. There is always a fantastic friendly fun atmosphere and the bar is full without being too crowded. The staff are very efficient and pleasant, their customer service is superb and you won't be waiting long for your favourite tipple. Paddy's Point also offer a vast menu with such a variety of good food that you could eat here every lunch and dinner and never have the same meal twice. And if you're a sports buff you'll be lost for choice as they show all the football, hurling, golf, horse racing, tennis and any other sport you could mention.
