El Campello

El Campello is a delightful holiday resort situated in a perfect position on the Costa Blanca coast of Alicante. This is a town that has resisted the lure of mass tourism and with its unpretentious air, this resort is perfect for both couples and families alike.

El Campello Beach

Lying between Alicante City (13km) and the busy resort of Benidorm (26km) it offers a history and a charm all of its own. With miles of wide sandy white beach, a pretty fishing harbour, views of the mountains and a wide selection of friendly eateries and bars, you can have all the advantages of a small, peaceful, relaxing resort but with the vibrancy of Alicante City and Benidorm within easy reach.

El Campello MarinaEl Campello has a proud history giving the town a unique feel. Around the port area archaeological remains of circular cabins dating back to 3000BC have been found and the little fishing harbour with its adjoining mariner are overlooked by a 16th century watchtower that acted as a warning against raids from Berber Pirates.

In the present day tourism is the town's main draw and no wonder! Dominating the resort is the blue, sun-kissed Mediterranean backed by a broad, pearl white beach stretching for miles. But the real difference is that the town planners have carefully considered the impact tourism could have and made sure that the individuality of El Campello is maintained.

Fisherman's Houses There are excellent beach facilities, as you would expect and a large number of good quality restaurants and café bars that spill out on the modern promenade that sweeps around the coast. However in El Campello you will also find families still living in tiny seafront houses painted in bright colours, that once were homes to fishermen. And as an example of the town's character it still holds a bustling weekly fish market, which the local restauranteurs take full advantage of!

There are few high-rise buildings, the town preferring to offer smaller, friendlier but no less equipped establishments as tourist accommodation. This makes it a more relaxing environment in which to take a holiday.
