Campello Introduction

Campello is a pleasant seaside town on the Costa Blanca. It lies a short distance north of Alicante and has a transfer time from the airport of less than thirty minutes. Campello’s economy was, in the past, dependent on fishing and agriculture. Now these industries have been overtaken by tourism which has become the most important factor in the economy of the area. Campello has provided well for its annual influx of visitors with an excellent range of hotels and apartments, restaurants serving a diverse cuisine, and shops for the purchase of essential provisions as well as gifts and holiday souvenirs. A Campello holiday offers a relaxing seaside break with a guarantee of summer sunshine and a range of recreational activities both in and out of the water.

Why Go To Campello?

Campello lies in an advantageous position between Alicante and Benidorm. It is a pleasant resort that has managed to retain its traditional atmosphere yet has all the amenities of the larger resorts on its doorstep. It has a wide sandy beach, ideal for family fun, and warm clear Mediterranean water. There are many tourist attractions both in and around the town, and there is also a choice of golf courses.

A Campello holiday has wide appeal. The sandy beach is very popular with families who have small children. Water sports enthusiasts can participate in a range of activities and golfers have a choice of courses. Couples of all ages can enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of Campello, while those looking for lively evenings can take a taxi to the night clubs of Benidorm or Alicante.

When To Go To Campello

The most popular time to take a Campello holiday is from April to October when the temperature ranges from a very pleasant twenty five degrees rising to the early thirties in the height of summer.

Campello - The Place

Campello is a very attractive resort on the Costa Blanca that manages to retain a traditional Spanish atmosphere. It is an ideal base for those wishing to escape the bustle of the city while wishing to benefit from its wide range of amenities. Being highly dependent on tourism, Campello has striven to provide the best for its holidaymakers. The hotels and apartments provide accommodation that caters for most budgets. There are restaurants serving menus that appeal to even the most pernickety of palates, and cafes and music bars providing evening entertainment. There are supermarkets for holiday provisions as well as a number of gift and souvenir shops. Each week, on Wednesdays, there is an open air market where you can practise the art of bartering for bargains. Those who self-cater, and enjoy fish, can bid for their evening meal at the fish auction which takes place before six in the harbour. Looking along the promenade from the harbour is a five hundred year old tower, built as a defence against pirates.

Campello has a sandy beach, making it popular with families with small children. The beach slopes gently into the clear blue Mediterranean waters providing safe bathing for children and less confident swimmers. A variety of water sports are available in the area.

Apart from the sandy beach washed by the clear blue waters of the Mediterranean, Campello and neighbouring Benidorm and Alicante offer a wide range of recreational activities. These include the Terre Mitica theme park, based on ancient civilisations, a popular attraction with thrilling rides and Aqualandia, a water park with daring slides. At Rincon de Loix, Mundomar the marine and exotic animal park has dolphins, sea lions and penguins, as well as birds and other small creatures. A submarine can be taken to Benidorm Island, a conservation area three kilometres out into the bay, where the clear waters enable the visitor to see the teeming marine life. Golfers are well provided for with a choice of courses in the area.

Campello Nightlife

Campello nightlife is considered to be fairly low key when contrasted with that of Benidorm. Although there are some lively bars, generally nightlife reflects the family nature of the resort with larger hotels providing evening entertainment. The area around the beach is the liveliest but for those who want to dance through the night Benidorm or Alicante are the places to be. There, the clubs, discos and karaoke bars, all serve low cost drinks, and are a magnet for fun lovers.

Campello Shopping

Campello shopping provides all the holiday essentials in supermarkets that are dotted around the town. There is also a large supermarket on the outskirts of the resort. Campello has the usual number of gift and souvenir shops as well as a market on Wednesday morning. Popular purchases include wickerwork, leather goods, pottery and embroidered linens. Those looking for a wider selection of goods can take the bus to Alicante or Benidorm.

Campello Eating

Campello has many bars, cafes and restaurants serving a wide range of cuisine and catering for all tastes. The pedestrianised and palm-lined promenade is filled with bars, cafes and small restaurants serving every kind of food. There is everything from traditional fish restaurants to British pub food, and from fast food to international cuisine. A good way to try Spanish food is to order a plate of tapas which consists of a medley of bite-sized dishes. Tapas are also ideal for filling the sometimes long gap between lunch and dinner, which is served later in Spain than at home.

Children are always made very welcome in Spanish restaurants and their tastes and portion sizes are usually accommodated.

Local wines are pleasant and inexpensive.
