Campello Things to Do
You can walk along a traffic free zone and stop at one of the many small restaurants for a meal or a drink.
We stopped off for a drink at the rather trendy looking (and sounding) Xaloc Lounge while walking back from El Campello towards Alicante in October 2013.
This beachside bar and restaurant is located on the immaculately clean seafront promenade with tables looking out across the vast Playa de Muchavista beach.
Although Xaloc Lounge serves meals (including seafood dishes and paella), we visited only for refreshing drinks after having walked several kilometres from the centre of El Campello in the midday sunshine.
We sat at one of the outdoor tables, under the welcome shade of a canopy, and watched as two local men played a game of beach football against each other.
As we had anticipated, the drinks proved to be rather expensive. We paid €3.50 each for smoothies. I had a "Fresa" (strawberry) one and Emma had a "Pina Colada" (pineapple and coconut....but no rum!) one. They were cold and refreshing, that was the main thing.
Had there been a cheaper option available to us, we'd have probably taken it. However, our walk along the beachside promenade from El Campello contained surprisingly few bars and restaurants and the ones that we passed were either closed (for afternoon siesta) or were charging similarly high prices to Xaloc Lounge.
An upmarket beachside bar and restaurant, offering great views over Playa de Muchavista beach!
the food and the service are excellent, the pizzas are fantastics
Favorite Dish: gamberretti a l'arrabiatta, prawns with a spicy tomatoe sauce, as well spaghetti al vongole and finally an homemade tiramisu ...

During our stay in Alicante in October 2013, we caught the local tram to the nearby seaside town of El Campello.
The details in this tip were correct as of that date.
We caught the tram from Alicante's "Mercado" station.
We purchased our tickets upon entering the station building and then scanned them to proceed through the turnstiles which led to the platform. Tickets cost €1.45 per person one way and we were unable to purchase return tickets.
We had two options for getting to El Campello:
Line L1 – this line runs all the way to Benidorm and stops at El Campello en route. It makes limited stops between Alicante and El Campello and is the quickest option.
Line L3 – this line terminates at El Campello and makes numerous stops along the seafront between Alicante and El Campello and thus takes several minutes longer to complete the journey than Line L1.
We weren't in any rush, so the journey time didn't concern us; we simply caught the first tram that was heading towards El Campello. It happened to be the quicker Line L1 tram.
We departed Alicante Mercado station at 12:13pm and arrived at El Campello 24 minutes later at 12:37pm.
El Campello's main tram stop is just a few minutes walk from the seafront.
