Pilar de la Horadada dates back to antiquity and has been influenced by Carthaginian, Roman & Moorish occupation. In the middle ages, it was the site of many battles between the competing Kingdoms of Valencia and Murcia. The famous medieval watch tower (La Torre - The Tower) was built in 1591 by order of Philip II of Spain in response to coastal raiding by Barbary pirates. Where Pilar de la Horadada meets the sea, the area is known as Torre de la Horadada.

The town with its many beaches is a relaxing and peaceful resort popular with both British and Spanish holiday makers. It enjoys long hot summers and mild winters making it a firm favourite with families, couples, golfers, cyclists and sun worshippers alike.

Torre de la Horadada has over 4 kms of white sandy beaches, all of which have the Blue Flag standard for cleanliness. There are also many rocky bays and inlets along with a large coastal nature reserve to explore.

Close to the Marina you will find the "old square", an area full of small Bars & Restaurants. During the summer this area, and the nearby "new square", reflect the Spanish love of outdoor dining and late nights.

The closest airport is Región de Murcia International (RMU) which is a 35 minute drive, alternatively Alicante airport (ALC) is 45 minutes and Almeria airport (LEI) is 2 1/2 hours.
