Nestled between Alicante city in the south and vibrant Benidorm in the north, El Campello is a town and district in the Costa Blanca region of Alicante in southeastern Spain. Although a modern coastal resort, El Campello oozes traditional village charm, with a fascinating history and colourful culture. Boasting year-round sunshine, a 23km-long coastline of wonderful beaches, an unspoiled natural landscape and an endless choice of fun things to do as a family, enjoy a low-key holiday by the coast, while being just a stone’s throw from the main crowds of the Costa Blanca.

From the spacious stretches of sand and pebbles to the modern facilities, play areas, amusement parks and lively promenades bustling with bars, shops and chiringuitos, the Blue Flag beaches of Carrer la Mar and Muchavista, along with the beach of L'Almadrava are perfect for a fun-filled family day out unwinding by the coast. Laze away the day away from the main crowds on the beaches of L'Amerador, Can Campello and Chula Campello while taking in the views of the sun-kissed Mediterranean. Discover La Coveta Fuma's landscape of small coves, crystalline waters and cliffs and enjoy an abundance of water sports from water skiing and scuba diving to sailing and windsurfing. 

But there's far more to sunny El Campello than its shimmering coastline; remnants of its interesting past can be found at the 16th century watchtower overlooking the lively marina and the Roman Queen's baths, well worth a visit. The surrounding mountainous landscape of Canelobre caves with its flora and fauna is a natural paradise for hikers and cyclists. Under an hour's drive of the resort, practice your swing at one of the many world class golf courses scattered around the region, or surprise your little ones with a visit to Aqualandia theme park in Benidorm offering great fun that the whole family can enjoy.Choose from villas with private pools, sea views and more.
