Mil Palmeras Beach

Located in the north of the Costa Blanca near the popular Mar Menor inland sea, Mil Palmeras Beach (Thousand Palms Beach) is classed as being part of Pilar de la Horadada although it is a couple of kilometres from the town. The fine sand beach is rather wide and stretches for 5 kilometres backed by a pleasant promenade. The beach is partly protected from the wind by a small cliff and the waters usually calm, making it ideal for families with young children.
