Destination guide

Book El Campello holiday rentals

The town of El Campello is a popular place to while away sunny holidays on the Costa Blanca. It's lined with a long, horseshoe-shaped bay of powdery yellow-white sand and set between the rugged rises of the Spanish sierras. The 2-mile-long Paseo del Mar promenade is the hub of life, with a montage of pizza eateries, ice-cream shops and cafes all spilling out onto the walks, just metres from the rolling waves of the Mediterranean Sea. El Campello holiday lettings aren't just a ticket to the pristine Spanish sands, though. They also offer a chance to explore ancient Roman villas and other intriguing archaeological dig sites, not to mention the buzzing city of Alicante – just 8.5 miles away – and oodles of charming whitewashed hill towns in the mountains.

Public transport around El Campello holiday homes

Other public transport services link the city to the lively resort of Benidorm, which is great if you're looking for that fix of late-night partying and karaoke.
