Playa Flamenca Town Hall
Shops, Cafés and Bars
Playa Flamenca Town Hall is on the landward side of the N332 between the La Zenia turn off and the Alameda del Mar turn off.
There is an underpass here, which allows access, and allows pedestrians to cross the N332 more easily. In fact, there are two underpasses here.
I think it should properly be called Orihuela Town Hall, or Ayuntamiento de Orihuela. Or should it be Orihuela Costa?
It is at the end of Calle Pablo Picasso, which seems to be wrongly marked on some maps. See my detail map for the correct location.
There is a tourist information office in the Playa Flamenca town hall, just inside to the left.
The bus stop for Cartagena is here just outside the Town Hall and the bus stop for Alicante and Torrevieja is across the road. The tourist information office can give you a bus timetable.
They can also give you the timetable for the "wee" bus which can take you to the new Torrevieja hospital and to Cabo Roig.
There is an article with good information on this wee bus
There is a web site for the town hall, which is in Spanish and English. You can get plenty of useful information from it.

There are two areas of commercial premises here. The first is a small shopping mall, which includes the Mercadona supermarket, and the second is the premises along the road beside the town hall and round the corner down to the underpass.
Of course, there may have been some changes since I made this list. Recent changes are noted *thus with food and drink outlets in bold.
I have listed everything for completeness, but some may not be of any interest to you while you are on holiday.

How to get to Playa Flamenca Town Hall
from Alameda del Mar.
On Calle Santa Alodia go past La Mosca CC and Flamenca Beach CC, turn left at Total Stationery. Walk past the New World Chinese restaurant and go down the road to the right hand bend – go up the steps on your left. Walk to the end of the street and turn left - you can see the sign for the Maxx gym. Walk towards this – the Mercadona supermarket and mall are on your right. Keep walking towards the main road – the Playa Flamenca Town Hall is on the opposite side of the road to Bankinter. You can recognise it by its turquoise pillars. The front door is on the N332 side.
Join the new cycle path on the landward side of the N332 at Burger King and simply walk along there to the Town Hall - easy. You can also get easily to the beach here via the underpass.
If you like to dice with death you can cross the road at Supercor and take the cycle path on the seaward side direct to the beach.
To get to the Playa Flamenca beaches from the Playa Flamenca Town Hall takes about 5 minutes.
To get to the beaches:-
From the Cam bank at the end of the row of small shops, turn left into the underpass. When you emerge in Calle Violetas you go left (bus stop is above you). Cross the road at the crossing, continue for abit, and turn right at Calle Las Orquideas and head for the sea. There is a Y junction, both arms go to the promenade. Left goes to the north end – there is a small shop and a snack bar. The right has a few small shops and there is another café and a restaurant there too.
