Murcia-San Javier Airport
Murcia-San Javier Airport is the closest and most convenient airport for holidaymakers to the Orihuela Costa. It is easily reached in under 30 minutes. If you're in a rush you can shave some time off that by taking the AP-7 motorway at La Zenia and paying the toll fee. It's possible to reach the airport by sticking with the N-332. However this takes longer as it passes through several towns. Most travellers avoid the AP-7 toll at La Zenia by taking the N-332 then joining the AP-7 at the junction just passed Mil Palmeras, then continue to the airport off-ramp.
