El Campello

Located between San Juan and Villajoyosa, El Campello is the Alicante municipality with the largest length of coastline: 23 kilometers dotted with beaches or coves of sand, gravel or stone such as Muchavista or Lanuza and secret corners that (fortunately) do not appear on Google Maps. It is an amazing location that can be enjoyed during any of the four seasons.


The lively Playa de Muchavista merges with the Playa de San Juan: together they make up a very long 7-kilometer stretch of sand that, especially in summer, becomes the nerve centre of summer life for campers and tourists.

Along its promenade, ice cream parlours, horchaterias, beach restaurants, rice and fried food restaurants overlap. On the beach we can find several water sports schools.

The other semi-urban and most popular beach, called Carrer La Mar, in the old fishing district, reaches the fishing port and yacht club. Both beaches have separate sections accessible to people with disabilities.


Right at the end of two municipal rivers (Río Seco and Río Aigües) we find two beaches suitable to go with your dog at any time of the year: Playa Can Punta del Riu, which also has a dog park and the Playa Barranc d´Aigües.


What would be the summer nights without beach bars? In El Campello it will be difficult to choose which one visit. Also due to the proximity to the fishing port, El Campello has some of the best sea food restaurants.


El Campello also surprises us with its historical snippets: the Illeta dels Banyets is one of the most relevant archaeological sites in the Mediterranean, which reminds us that there were prehistoric, Chalcolithic and Bronze Age settlements here.

The remains of an Iberian settlement, thermal baths and fish farms from Roman times are also preserved, giving their name to Els Banyets de la Reina. In this area, just behind the yacht club, we discover a rocky platform (the Bassa de la Reina) and a small stone cove perfect for diving.

Apart from the Illeta dels Banyets site, El Campello also has historical symbols such as the Torre de la Illeta (Well of Cultural Interest), built between 1554 and 1557 to spot the Berber pirates and prevent their attacks, which was restored in 1991 and which is today an emblem of the Alicante municipality or the Torre de Lloma de Reixes, which is located in the Barranco de Aigües, just where the division between the Kingdom of Castile and that of Aragon that was in force until 1296 was drawn.

Another must place to visit is Villa Marco, a rustic modernist-style estate with colonial touches and gardens inspired by the French Palace of Versailles, which can be seen on guided tours.
