ORIHUELA COSTA is pleased to announce a full weekend of events to commemorate World Tourism Day beginning Friday 29th September. 

To quote the official website, World Tourism Day 2017 – the official day was on Wednesday September 27 – presents a unique opportunity to raise awareness on the contribution of sustainable tourism among public and private sector decision-makers and the international community, while mobilising all stakeholders to work together in making tourism a catalyst for positive change.

All activities listed below on the Orihuela Costa and surrounding areas are free, but there are a limited number of places for the events.  To check the availability and to book a place – some of which may include transport to and from the event – call the Orihuela and the Orihuela Costa Tourist Information Offices on 96 530 4645 or 96 676 0000 (extension 32)
