San Miguel De Salinas

A typical spanish town, with lots of character and spanish atmosphere

Please read this updated information for 2021

Another disclaimer: Our area guides, like all of our content, need to be updated. What were the previous "owners/operators/managers/ whatever" of this website doing I wonder?? How can clients trust an agent with such way out of date information?

Anyway, that's a debate for another time.

Just looking at Cabo Roig, my adopted home town in Spain, half the bars mentioned no longer exist and everything had changed. You can no longer have a beer with Jim in The Bog Road or a steak with the girls in Beef or Salmon! Both are badly missed I hear!

We'll be updating this soon, adding new developments that have started in the recent past, new photos, mentioning the new hip and happening locations and giving you a general updated feel of what's happening in the area.

You'll get a good idea of the regions though from our guides, so feel free to click through.

San Miguel De Salinas


San Miguel de Salinas is a small Spanish town inland, close to Villamartin that has about 50 per cent Spanish inhabitants and 50 per cent ex pats, mainly British. The approach roads are very picturesque with many lemon and almond groves to be seen. There is a bypass road that keeps the heavy delivery trucks off the main town area, meaning peace for those ex pats who have relocated here. San Miguel is a quaint small town with narrow streets and a nice mix of Spanish and English bars and restaurants. Located 15 minutes from the golden beaches of Campoamor it is more typically Spanish than other locations in the area such as La Zenia, Villamartin, Playa Flamenca and Campoamor. It is 50 minutes from Alicante Airport and about 15 minutes from Ryanair's San Javier (Murcia) Airport. Vistabella Golf Course is only 5 minutes away and the world class Las Ramblas, Villamartin and Las Colinas golf courses about 15 minutes.

The town boasts a medical centre, banks, pharmacies, schools including two international schools that provide access to GCSE and A Level examinations, and plenty of bars and restaurants. There is a superb butcher shop (carniceria) beside the post office (Correos) with choice cuts of different meats and poultry and a variety of sauces and select wines available as well. A well-kept secret but a must try is the tapas bar Meson de Paco. This amazing restaurant has a vast choice of Spanish food, is very clean and decorated in a lovely Spanish style. The owners are very friendly and the service fantastic. Prices are very reasonable and you can have an excellent meal out for two for less than 20 euros. The local church is on the main road through the town and has a lovely plaza in front where the town celebrates its many fiestas including the festival of San Miquel which is held in September. Market day in San Miquel de Salinas is Wednesdays and here the locals mingle with the tourists trying to get the best bargains and there is plenty of laughter heard on the streets.

We sell many new developments here and its popularity is increasing, due to the super value new builds on offer.
