An Area Guide to Campoamor
Situated on the eastern Mediterranean coastline of the southern Costa Blanca, Campoamor is one of the Orihuela Costa’s most beautiful beach resorts, nestled between the busy tourist hub of Cabo Roig and the neighbouring Mil Palmeras to the south. Campoamor is a location of two halves with Dehesa de Campoamor occupying the beachside of the dissecting N332 national road, whilst Lomas de Campoamor sitting in a slightly elevated spot to the opposite side of the road, although still within a few minutes of the superb beaches.
Dehesa de Campoamor (which translates as Meadows of Campoamor) has a significantly higher Spanish population than many of the surrounding resorts and consequently enjoys a distinctly more Spanishy feel. Home to a trio of beautiful Blue Flag accredited beaches, Playa de Glea, Playa Diez Picos and the Cala de Campoamor, it is also host to the marina ‘Club Nautico Dehesa de Campoamor’ offering mooring facilities for upto 350 boats of upto 60m, as well as yachts and smaller leisure craft.
Things to Do in Campoamor
The main Playa de la Glea beach is a long, outstanding stretch of immaculate golden sand, served by a number of bars, restaurants and ‘chiringuitos’ or beach bars. Restaurant La Baraca sits at the end of the beach offering a wonderful spot for an afternoon drink or a spot of lunch, whilst the Los Angeles and Fishbowl restaurants offer a superb range of fine dining and beautiful views across the marina. For a little touch of luxury, you can visit the exclusive Las Colinas Beach Club which occupies a privileged spot overlooking the beach. Part of the Las Colinas Golf Resort, the club boasts a wonderful infinity pool offering idyllic views directly on to the Mediterranean Sea, a welcoming café bar and a superb sushi restaurant.
In the surrounding area you’ll also find a wide selection of bars and restaurants, with the La Fuente Commercial Centre a particular favourite. Built over three floors, you’ll find dozens of bars and restaurants all in one place and offering every imaginable culinary delight, from haute cuisine to fish’n’chips. Every possible taste is catered for, from traditional Spanish and Italian to English and French to Indian and Chinese, with every variation in between.
In Lomas de Campoamor (translated as Hills of Campoamor) you’ll find both the challenging 18 hole Las Ramblas Golf course and the Real Club de Golf Campoamor Resort which combines a superb par 72, 6,277 meter long course and 4* hotel and sports complex. As the area’s pre-eminent sports centres, Real Club de Golf Campoamor often plays host to leading European football and other clubs who come to avail themselves of the superb training facilities as well as the year round sunshine. The hotel restaurant is a renowned spot, offering an extensive menu and one of the best locations to enjoy spectacular views across the Costa Blanca and the Costa Calida to the Mar Menor and beyond.
Weather in Campoamor
Blessed with a climate that the World Health Organisation declare to be one of the very healthiest in the world, the area is noted as having ‘as near perfect an environment as it is possible to obtain’ – high praise indeed! Year-round sunshine and low humidity are a perfect combination and with the Costa Blanca enjoying an average annual temperature of 19o, highs of 40o+ and more than 3000 hours of sunshine over 320+ days, few other regions can compete. Water temperatures average 25o even in the autumn meaning you can take a dip in the Med well into late October whilst daytime temperatures often still reach well into the 20’s throughout December making this the perfect spot to escape the British winter!

I first approached ‘Homes Overseas’ in mid 2017 enquiring about a house Villamartin. I had a very informative conversation with Jane who explained the process of buying in Spain and how they worked as a company.
I decided at the time that we would wait until after Christmas to look again so we could raise some more funds, but things changed and after speaking with Jane again, booked a trip in mid November.
I was met at the airport by Matt who then took me to my hotel ready for the next day.
Matt picked me up in the morning and gave me a very comprehensive tour of the coast from los alcazares up to Punta Prima, showing me lots of lovely towns I never knew existed, this lasted the whole day. I can’t stress enough how much this helped in making my decision the following day, the places I thought I wanted to be turned out to be totally wrong.

Jayne was the first person we spoke to . She was very helpful and put us in touch with Matt . He met us from the airport and took us to our rental property . He came in to check everything was ok . The following day he drove me and my whole family around to see all the different areas . Pointing out how the areas are very close to each other as we were undecided where we wanted to buy . He was very helpful and gave us a lot of information. The next day he collected us and drove us around to view 15/16 properties, again as we were not sure what we wanted to buy. He was very patient and friendly . We choose the last property which we love . We went back the last day to review it then without feeling pressurised we choose that one . He then helped with taking us to the notary, solicitors, and the rental place all just before they were all shutting for a bank holiday . We would never have got that all dealt with before we had to return home without his help and professionalism .
We are very grateful for all his help and hope he remains a good friend and he is always welcome to pop over for a beer when we are there .

We’re really pleased with our property purchase in Spain. Matt worked tirelessly showing us a large number of properties over several days. All were within our stated budget, we were not pressured into going higher or into buying anything we weren’t happy with. He was very hospitable and professional at all times and has remained in contact after the sale for any other help we may need..
Once we had seen the property we wanted, he arranged all the details with the solicitors, notary, etc, which made the whole process of the purchase stress-free.
We would have no problem in recommending Homes Overseas to any friends or family looking to purchase in the area.
