The cylindrical tower in El Campello is, as is the case with many Costa Blanca towns, the starting point, the spark from which the town grew. It was originally a protection against Berber pirates. The town grew from there, and today is a sentinel of the sea, a humble Mediterranean town of 26,000, and affording kilometres of choice beaches. It’s located in the central part of the Costa Blanca, just north of the city of Alicante, not far south of the tourist mecca Benidorm.
If you’re looking to spend an extended period of time in Eastern Spain they will place you near the white sands of the beaches. The beaches are lined with shops and restaurants, and with choice of apartments you have every opportunity to find one of the choicest locations in El Campello.
Those who stay permanently in El Campello, will go beyond the tourist lifestyle and get into the everyday swing with activities such as the weekly fish market. Some of the people selling these delicacies from the sea live in brightly-painted houses on the sea front—once lived in by fishermen.
Once you’ve settled down you start to explore the Costa Blanca region as a whole, taking advantage of nearby sites and destinations such as Alicante Harbour, the water park Terra Mitica in Benidorm, or the various beaches in any of the nearby towns. Living in El Campello will put you in an amazing position to spend some lazy weekend just driving up and down the coast. In any event, if the expatriate lifestyle suits you, or if you are from Spain and looking for a home away from home.
El Campello offers some options. It carries the right variety of interesting activities and peacefulness all of what makes the province of Alicante unique and special will be within a stone’s throw from El Campello. And because it’s outside of the bigger tourist areas.
