Campoamor is located in the far south of Spain’s Costa Blanca.
It is serviced by 2 international airports. Alicante (El Altet), which is 40 minutes north, and Murcia (San Javier) which is about 30 minutes to the south.
The main features of the area are the enormous salt lakes, which besides giving a home to thousands of flamingos and other wildlife, also control the regions microclimate. The colours of the lakes are constantly changing due to the iodine and other minerals in the water. The colour range is fascinating, changing from the deepest red to the most vibrant blue within a few hours. The high concentration of salt in the air has many health benefits and The World Health Organization has declared the area as being one of the healthiest places on earth to live.
A 10 minute drive south will bring you to the famous Las Charcas mud baths near the town of San Pedro de Pinatar. Arthritis sufferers and people with all sorts of skin problems benefit from bathing in the black mud and letting it harden on their skin in the sun before washing it off. A natural spa, and completely free!
Campoamor has its own beach and a few minutes away are the larger beaches of Cabo Roig and La Zenia. The nearby city of Torrevieja has 3 large beaches and 5 minutes further north you will find the beach of La Mata which extends, only broken by the river Segura, a full 40 kilometres north, through Guardamar and Santa Pola to the city of Alicante.
The area is a designated tourist zone, meaning that unlike other areas, the shops, restaurants and bars can remain open 7 days a week and as many hours a day that they choose.
The south Costa Blanca has the highest concentration of Blue Flag beaches in the whole of Spain!
