Popular with the Spanish for seaside holidays, Torre de la Horadada has a good selection of shops, banks and supermarkets. Pilar de la Horadada is a typical Costa Blanca seaside village – with pretty whitewashed houses and winding cobbled streets. The Parish Church – Nuestro Senora del Pinar – is at the heart of the village and still has the original bell-tower.
There are a few shops, small bars and restaurants. With crystal clear waters, beautiful Blue Flag beaches, and a pretty marina, Torre de la Horadada is hard to beat. Mostly flat, it’s perfect for walking and cycling. Walk along the riverbed of the Rio Seco (Rio Seco means Dry River) to Salinas de San Pedro de Pinatar and see nesting flamingos.
Southern Costa Blanca has an excellent infrastructure, with good road and rail links – Torre de la Horadada is only fifteen minutes from San Javier airport, and an hour from Alicante airport.
