Punta Prima: The most northerly of the Orihuela Costa resorts, Punta Prima is a lovely little seaside town situated just south of the better known Torrevieja on the Costa Blanca, Spain.
With a good range of facilites and some nice beach areas, Punta Prima is an up and coming resort for the area. With a large number of new commercials being developed and the massive Punta Marina complex being built Punta Prima will surely become even more popular.
Punta Prima used to be well known for its rival car boot sales, but due to local regulations, these no longer take place.
Also nearby is the go-cart track, a popular spot for young and old alike, with mini-quads and carts up to pretty powerful fully fledged go-carts. There is also now a children's fun fair nearby and a paintballing centre.
