Nothing better on a sunny day than a morning out fishing, and fishing in the sea!
One of our favourite places to do that is Amerador beach, at walking distance from the esplanade in El Campello, a lovely little coastal town 9 km from Alicante.
Its name, “Amerador”, comes from the spanish verb “amerar” which means “to soak, wet”. The story says the farmers came to this bay to soak the wild grass they collected in the nearby mountains. This ‘esparto’ grass was a vitally important element of nature in agricultural life, used for making baskets, hats, bowls and even shoes.
At only 20 minutes by tram from the city centre, Cala Amerador is a cosy and quiet beach not just to fish, but to do some snorkelling too, the best spot being the near Llop Mari Bay.
