Please read this updated information for 2021
Another disclaimer: Our area guides, like all of our content, need to be updated. What were the previous "owners/operators/managers/ whatever" of this website doing I wonder?? How can clients trust an agent with such way out of date information?
Anyway, that's a debate for another time.
Just looking at Cabo Roig, my adopted home town in Spain, half the bars mentioned no longer exist and everything had changed. You can no longer have a beer with Jim in The Bog Road or a steak with the girls in Beef or Salmon! Both are badly missed I hear!
We'll be updating this soon, adding new developments that have started in the recent past, new photos, mentioning the new hip and happening locations and giving you a general updated feel of what's happening in the area.
You'll get a good idea of the regions though from our guides, so feel free to click through.
Campoamor is a stunningly beautiful part of Costa Blanca, Spain. It has got the best elements of a Spanish location including beautiful beaches, green areas, and magnificent walks and within close reach of bars and restaurants, shops and the city of Torrevieja. Campoamor blue flag beach is a short 10 minutes drive, here you can park right next to the beach and enjoy the excellent Spanish cuisine at the various restaurants dotted around the beach and also at the chiringuitas - the wooden beach bar which sells large jugs of local Sangria - delicious! Campoamor is proud to have the championship golf course - Real Club de Campoamor Golf Course, built in 2000 and situated at its centre with panoramic views across the Costa Blanca region. This course has recently had a major restructure and is sure to be a challenging and engaging course for golfers of all standards. We've blogged about the Golf resort in Campoamor plenty in the past. Its a popular destination for football teams who come to Spain to train including the Austria National team who trained here late in 2015.
There is an elegant urbanisation built around the golf course that is considered upmarket and is a very desirable place to live and buy property for investment. This area has a very bright and spacious feeling and although there are a lot of urbanisations in the surrounding areas it feels like you are still living in the countryside. There is a fabulous walk along the canal which weaves its way from Campoamor through to Las Ramblas Golf Club and here you can see many walkers and cyclists out enjoying the healthy climate of this area of Spain. The restarants here are multi-cultural and the local Spanish cuisine shows the influence of the Moors, Celts, Greeks and Romans who once lived here.
The La Fuente Commercial centre is the main urban area of Campoamor and has pharmacies, hair & beauty salons, retail outlets, golf outlet and a variety of superb restaurants with offerings from Italy, Spain, Ireland, Mexico and France. You could choose a different restaurant every night without leaving this centre. There is the Stray Sod Irish Bar which offers live music on a nightly basis and a good all day menu which includes the favourites, full Irish breakfast, Irish stew and Bacon & Cabbage. Its a great spot too for watching sports on their many big screen TVs, inside and on the large sunny terrace. The well-known Crystals Restaurant is situated here also and the food here is consistently good year on year, generous portions and an unusual selection of fresh vegetables, a little bit on the more expensive side but well worth the trip. La Fuente is one of the most popular commercial centres in the Costa Blanca, Orihuela Costa area and there is always a lovely buzz here to add to the enjoyment of your evening out.
