El Campello is the main resort at the northern edge of Alicante City. The centre of the old town is located 2km from the coast on a small hill whilst the main tourist area is built around the former fishing area. After many centuries, and despite the modernization of the heart of the Costa Blanca, El Campello inhabitants have preserved and provided their town with a dual character, both rural and cosmopolitan.
El Campello has a varied and attractive coastline of 23km in length. At the extreme north, next to the Coveta Fuma, there are cliffs and small coves of sand, gravel and rocks with clear water. Alongside the Port and the fishing area you will find El Campello yacht club and there is an urban beach that runs parallel to the seaside promenade. This is a lovely walk especially when lit in the evening. Here you will find numerous restaurants and tapas bars where you will be spoilt for choice deciding which type of meal to enjoy. Finally, there is the beach of Mutxavista, made up of fine sand and with all types of facilities, which runs for 3km to the south. There is a diving club that organizes dives at various points of the Costa Blanca and a fishing village has been built amongst the cliffs that recreate the image of a traditional Mediterranean village.
