El Campello

El Campello has a traffic free promenade

El Campello is a small Spanish resort and town. It has a relaxed atmosphere.

It is very convenient being only 25 mins from Alicante Airport. El Campello has a beautiful Esplanade to stroll along with many seaview restaurants, ice cream parlours and bars. It has a small fishing port with working fishing boats and a fresh fish market most evenings

Also overlooking the marina is The Watch Tower – built in 1554 to protect the inhabitants from raids by Barbary pirates. On 16th July the sailors pay their respects to La Virgen Del Carmen, a colourful procession along with very noisy fireworks. Between 9th October and 15th there are the Festivals of the Morros and Chrisianos – equally noisy and great fun.

El Campello has a wonderful mountain backdrop to its palm lined beaches.

In high season you can catch the glass bottom boat to Tabarca Island. A ferry also runs North to Benidorm and South to Alicante. The apartment is in the town so it is easy to walk to supermarkets – there are several all within 10 minutes walk. Pharmacy / Chemists 4 minutes walk

 

There is a Bus stop only 3 mins walk away from which you can catch a bus to Alicante. There is also an electric tram with frequent Trams to Benidorm (45mins) and Alicante (20 mins) – in both cases it is a dramatic route along the shores of the Mediterranean.
