I spent an afternoon here with two adults and eight children. It is a good place to shop with children as it is clean, tidy and relatively easy to keep an eye on the kids. Nice shops, friendly staff and good places to eat and drink when required. As it is outside and not enclosed in a buliding it isabit like walking in a small town.

We walked to Cabo Roig from La Zenia all along the sea front. Lovely scenery and felt safe. Stopped in the restaurant along the front just before the marina for coffee and ice cream. Enjoyed our walk..lovely views.

Playa Cala Capitan

Reviewed By KieronWood - Dublin, Ireland

We were recommended to this beach by a long-time resident. Although it's only round the corner from La Zenia, which can be dangerous, Cala Capitan is safe, gently shelving and sandy - but crowded. There are two Beaches and a rocky promontory. But be prepared to walk to the beach - parking nearby is impossible. (BTW, it's not in Punta Prima, but off the N332!)

Gin & Fizz

Reviewed By petewilson2017 - Grantham, United Kingdom

A new addition to the Plaza Square, ( formerly Sapphire cocktail bar) Gin And Fizz Gin Bar. Really great bar for pre / post meal drinks.
130 Gins to choose from, all meticulously presented with attention to detail.
Some of the Gins are more expensive but the extensive menu has all the prices so you are fully aware before you order. Ian and Tracey, the owners were great and very knowledgeable and also very friendly.
If Gin is not you drink , there are plenty of other options to choose.
At the moment they are not opening Sunday and Monday evenings so if you are planning a visit avoid these days.
Well worth calling next time you are in or near Villa Martin Plaza.

Havana Bar

Reviewed By Sunseeker215 - Kilmarnock, United Kingdom

Definitely try their Mojitos along with many other cockails on offer at this friendly bar. On Wednesday evenings at 19.30 there are salsa lessons available if you have the nerve which are great fun. They also provide Spanish lessons from the middle of October for those wishing to learn either basic or advanced Spanish. Great pub to hang out in with friendly staff.

Playa de la Glea

Reviewed By lovesusa - Stockton Heath, United Kingdom

The beach here is a blue flag one with disabled access and a chair for disabled visitors to go into the water - see the lifeguards. Lifeguards of course - please follow their instructions you can be fined if you don't plus its just common sense.
The beach is a long one, lovely soft sand. The usual chiringuito (beach bar) with snacks, drinks, meals, ice creams. You get the key for the toilets from them.
Parking is now either in the side streets or on the waste ground in front of the bridge with the arches below. Not enough of it. Until fairly recently you could park down the road on one side but yellow lines have now appeared so this is a no no now. I would imagine anyone who has difficulty walking will find this a real problem as the parking surface on the field is very rough - buggies and wheelchairs will be very difficult to push. Why could there not be wheelchair/family parking along the road?
You are able to rent sunbeds and umbrellas on the beach, 15€ for the package but if you are planning a few days on the beach its worth buying your own at one of the many Chinese shops along the coast. Go early, especially at weekends!

Dique de Levante Breakwater

The Dique de Levante, with an extension of 1600 metres, has become a privileged esplanade facing the sea. Its structure combines wood and steel,and at the bottom side it includes a cycleway.The Dique de Levante is one of the most visited places by both tourists and inhabitan.

Reviewed By nnmercman - Camberley, United Kingdom

The raised breakwater boardwalk is longer than you think - you spot the statue at the curve and think that’s it - well actually it’s only half distance! Not sure of the length in total but reckon it must be near a mile. The main walkway is made of railway sleeper type logs but not as thick and a narrow paved path is to one side. Be careful if you walk along the planks without footwear as a number of the fixing screws have worked loose and become slightly raised in places. The statue half way is interesting, sculpted by Carmen Fraile (name’s on the plinth!) and alongside is a water Fountain. Walking along you get views over the marina and also the submarine museum moored up at the jetty across wasteland. A boat rental/water ski area is at the end of the marina and no doubt interesting to watch the goings on in summer (it was closed when I was there mid November). Fishermen gather along rocks around the lighthouse and a number of cats hang around the bench area and stairs nearby - looking over the railing I noticed a couple of small huts and food bowls so they’re obviously well fed and looked after - when I sat down one insisted on trying to snooze on my lap! If it’s a hot day you can walk along the bottom road which is in the shade.
A pleasant walk, nice views and good for exercise!
