Located on the coast, south of Benidorm, Campello is a small Spanish seaside town where you’ll find shops, supermarkets, a Wednesday street market and numerous restaurants and bars along the seafront.
Every day you can buy fresh fish and seafood at the fish auction at the harbour; there’s an amazing selection to choose from and prices can be very low.
Visit at night to see a striking laser beam crossing the night sky, linking two sculptures dedicated to fishermen, one in Alicante and the other here in Campello.
This is a great base for exploring the rest of the area and the most relaxing way to see the sights, is by train.
Catch the Lemon Express for a scenic ride along the coast to Dénia, passing other pretty seaside towns like Calpe and Villajoyosa on the way.
Campello has 12 km of coastline from Coveta Fumà in the north to Blue Flag, Mutxavista in the south. Along the way there are many tiny secluded coves with crystal clear water, much appreciated by naturists.
The area has not one, but two Blue Flag beaches, Carrer la Mar and Mutxavista.
Carrer la Mar has fine golden sand, is fully accessible for people with mobility problems and has a good range of restaurants and café’s on its promenade.
In the summer, there are concerts, markets and an outdoor cinema. There’s even a library on the beach so you don’t have to put off finishing that holiday read.
Mutxavista beach has fine gold sand, is great for bathing and water sports and part of this beach is accessible for people with disabilities. There are beach activities and workshops for children and young people throughout the summer.
