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.

El Campello review

a very charming and small villa village, nice to have some walk around. We didnt find any bar or restaurant open though. There is a big hotel being build in the village at one of the beaches and a part of it is almost finished. There we saw a resaturant and bar will be comming soon.


Costa Blanca reviews

We found two beaches in the village. The closest one to the house had seagrass allover and the other one next to the new hotel being finished was more or less clean. We didnt go though to none of them for having a beach day. We had a car and drove to some other nicer places around.
