It has 2 fine beaches, a superb marina, a spectacular and picturesque cliff walk to La Zenia and a great choice of shops, bars and restaurants along the well known and loved Cabo Roig strip. This popular and award winning beach has a length of 150 meters with an average width of 16 meters and there are no obstacles in accessing it.

DEHESA DE CAMPOAMOR
The Urbanisation Dehesa de Campoamor is a green oasis on the Mediterranean coast.

The beach at Playa de La Glea, also known as the “Big Beach”, is the largest one in Campoamor and it is also the best equipped, with a First-Aid booth manned by the Red Cross, sanitation and other facilities. This beach is awarded the coveted ‘Blue Flag’ every year. This beach is not only popular with foreign tourists but also with residents from Orihuela Costa and Torrevieja, who flock to this beach every year.

The beach at Playa de Barranco Rubio, also known as the “Small Beach”, is obviously smaller than the Playa de la Glea. Traditionally this beach is mainly visited by tourists from the interior in Murcia and Alicante regions and these people tend to visit Campoamor every year so they all know each other, which makes for a very friendly and familiar atmosphere.

This open beach boasts fine white sand and is 346 meters long by 45 wide. There are parking facilities, special access for handicapped people, toilets and foot-washing facilities, a life-guard tower and a Red Cross station.
