El Campello

El Campello is situated just 10 kilometres north of Alicante city and has a wonderful 23 kilometre long coastline. It has been continually inhabited since the Bronze age with the Iberians and Romans also leaving their mark, evidence of which can be discovered at the La Illeta Archaeological site. The iconic coastal Watch Towers were built and used during the 16th and 17th centuries to warn of attacks by the Berber pirates, and the fishing industry began during the 18th century. El Campello has several outstanding beaches and coves to enjoy, an official Snorkelling route, a marina with 420 berths, a seafront promenade, and several tram stops that connect south to Alicante city and north to Benidorm.
