Villamartin is very popular with tourists all year round and has a large population of full time residents of a variety of nationalities ? this means that the shops, bars and restaurants are full of life no matter if it is summer or winter.
The hub of Villamartin is the square itself, known locally as Villamartin Plaza - a beautifully designed commercial complex with mosaic tiled benches, mature palm trees and a resident population of African Ring Neck parrots. The square is lined with some of the area 's most popular restaurants and bars ? many of which have featured on television programmes such as A Place in the Sun and even The Only Way is Essex!
Villamartin Plaza was one of the first purpose built leisure areas on the Orihuela Costa. Its position close to Villamartin Golf Course and"millionaire 's row" mansions attracted an upmarket crowd and the high-quality bars and restaurants reflected its quality image. Over time the plaza 's place in the spotlight had faded but now, after its recent face lift, it is once again claiming its crown as the place to go.
The one-time playground of the rich and famous has been restored to its former glory thanks to a programme of extensive maintenance and refurbishment.
It is a family-friendly, safe and secure and environment where locals and holiday-makers can eat, drink and enjoy sitting out on those long summer evenings. For those who like a little more hustle and bustle many of the bars have weekend discos and entertainment so you can boogie the night away. The committee of owners organise free open air concerts throughout the year, many of which raise money for local charities and all of which are very well attended.
