Hostal Maruja El Pinet on the seafront at La Marina
HOSTAL MARUJA El Pinet La Marina, elx Elche,Alicante
Hostal Maruja Amongst the more than fifty well-kept chalets that line the beach is the Hostal Maruja which has sat at the centre of this parade for sixty years and as you can see from the images, hasn’t changed at all.
There is an English Butchers in the village, papershop, chemist, grocery store etc and a short 5 minute drive you will find a large supermarket and the new Iceland store selling all your well known brands. The beach at El pinet has long been a favourite with the Spanish due to its beautiful golden sand and beachside eateries.
The apartments listed below are a pleasant 10 minute walk through the pine trees and salt lakes to reach the beach. It is also a very popular area for bird watchers due to the wide variety of bird life which the salt lakes attract.
The beach is the main attraction for holiday makers staying at our apartment above,,,,,,,, especially for the Spanish holiday makers who simply love the place.
A pleasant stroll by the lake and through the pine trees will bring you to the beach where there are a few typical Spanish restaurants such as Hostal Maruja offering inexpensive dishes of the day or a cool relaxing drink.
The warm Mediterranean sea provides all year round swimming and the excellent climate means you can even sun bathe in December as temperatures can reach as high as 25c. The village of La Marina is small and quiet yet there are plenty of good restaurants, bars and shops to keep most people happy.
It is about a 10 minute walk into the village so a car is unnecessary though it is worth traveling a few miles further down the coast to the lovely town of Guardamar where you will find more wonderful beaches, a ruined castle and marina.
Hostal Maruja on the beach
In July thousands visit this town to see the annual Moors and Christians festival which is quite a spectacle.
The Hostal, owner,is Jose Antonio, who has been coming here every year of his life (he’s now sixty three).
This is what Hostal Maruja looks like from the road plus a beach side view.

In 1995 the front of the Hostal was destroyed by storm force waves that took down the front walls but the place has since then been restored to its former and classic glory. Areas like this should be protected because they give us fantastic snap shot of Spanish life, past and present.
El Pinet at La Marina comes under Elche Elx, and is basically a strip of private homes, three restaurants and a couple of small hotels, about 1 km long
A walk around the Hostal Maruja looking at the old black and white photos of the place are interesting
The beach at Playa del Pinet is completely unspoiled with sand dunes and long fine golden powdery sands sloping gently down to the warm, shallow, clear waters of the Mediterranean.
There are a couple of small restaurants on the beach offering a variety of dishes throughout the day at attractive prices.
