The name Molinar comes from the many windmills, los molinos, that used to be in the area. Most of them are now gone, but some remain that you can see.
Molinar is the continuation of Portixol, before Ciudad Jardin. The big and beautiful obelisque next to the sea is almost a trademark for the area.
Long ago there were only fishermen and farmers living in Molinar but it is now, together with Portixol, one of the most sought after areas to live in.
There are many good restaurants and nice cafés, but also grocery shops, fruit and vegetable shops and a pharmacy that is open at night.
Just like Portixol, Molinar is also an active area where many people are doing sports – swimming, bicycling, running, walking, skateboarding, or rollerblading. Here you will also see many surfers, as the waves break nicely in the winter time. In the summer evenings you will see families and friends gather on the beaches along the boardwalk having dinner together. It is truly a charming and genuine area.
If you are looking to live in a quiet and charming area where the Mediterranean Sea is around the corner and fully present, then Molinar is a dream location. The prices here are quickly increasing, but it is still possible to find a good project to turn into a true gem, where you have the clear blue sea close enough to enjoy a late evening swim.
