El Campello

El Campello is a modern coastal resort, which boasts 23 kilometres of quiet, pearly white, sandy beaches. Situated 14 kilometres north of Alicante. 


Located facing the Lalmadrava beach, near the residential development Poble Rspañol, El Campello boasts a beautiful natural environment, with an outlook to the beach and sea, and a mountain backdrop. A splendid climate and the promise of a holiday filled with peace and tranquility is what you can expect on your trip to El Campello.

It has excellent road and rail connections, with Alicante International Airport just 35 minutes drive away.

Leisure and recreational
The Paseo del Mar (promenade) is almost 2 miles long and makes for a lovely evening stroll in the setting sun. During the day take advantage of the beaches and sea.

Beaches
The main beach at El Campello is the beautiful wide, sandy beach of Muchavista. In the vicinity there are some charming coves, such as those of La Coveta Fuma or La Venta La Nuza. With crystal clear waters and excellent year-round weather make for an ideal place for water sports such as sailing, scuba diving and windsurfing.

Excursions


If you are visiting El Campello we recommend a trip to the archeological site of La Illeta dels Banyets and the famous Torre Vigía De La Illeta (tower), which is one of the most important historical sites in the Costa Blanca.

Within half an hour’s drive from the coastline you will find yourself in a stunning countryside and mountainous zone. The scenery is beautiful, dotted with fascinating mountain villages, all with a history and a story to tell.

Views from the lofty mountain fortress of Guadalest rival those from anywhere else in Spain, and it is said that you can see as far as Ibiza on a clear day.

For outdoor enthusiasts, hiking and cycling routes can be found in the surrounding mountains. Here can also be found the famous Canalobre Caves.

Golf
There are many championship golf courses in and around Alicante, all within one hour’s drive of the resort.

Eating out
There is a huge choice of authentic Spanish restaurants and bars, all serving delicious meals or tapas. The El Campello Marina sits at one end of the bay, offering both a lively fish market and a selection of sumptuous restaurants.

Cuisine
The local cuisine in El Campello is typically that of the Costa Blanca, which combines delicacies from both land and the Mediterranean Sea. Many civilizations have lived in this area (Celts, Iberians, Greeks, Romans, Muslims), all of which have all left their mark on the gastronomy.

The diet in El Campello is a typically, healthy Mediterranean one; the Costa Blanca is rich in fish, vegetables, olive-oil, rice and fruit and the ingredients which are all used to prepare delicious, healthy dishes, such as Paella Valenciana, Arroz Negro (black rice), Arroz al horno (Oven baked rice), Arroz a banda (fish and rice stew), Arroz del Señoret (Princes rice).

Aside from seafood, typical dishes include succulent lamb chops, rabbit in garlic, roast leg of lamb with garlic and fresh rosemary, and home made sausages and black puddings.

If you have a sweet tooth then you will enjoy the local homemade pastries and deserts that the whole region is famous for. Or Jijona ice-cream (Nougat), which is made with the almonds of the region.

While in El Campello you can delight the palate with the ample wines an offer from the region giving Jalon wine a special mention due to its quality and bouquet.

There are many international restaurants close by offering a wide choice of different cuisines from around the world.

Climate
El Campello enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate; as is it is surrounded by mountain ranges, it can sometimes get very hot in summer, but it is protected against the cold North winds in winter. The area averages nearly 3,000 hours of sunshine each year and the average temperature easily exceeds 20 degrees.

In 1986 the World Health Organisation recommended the climate of the area as one of the most equitable in the world - neither too hot in the summer nor too cold in the winter. On average it can boast 325 sunny days each year making it an ideal all year round destination.
