Camposol looks exactly as you saw it on TV, beautiful surroundings and lovely atmosphere.

We have about 6 beaches near Camposol

1. Playa de Bolnuevo.. 8miles

2. Playa del Castellar..8 and half miles

3. Playa de Nares...9 miles

4. Playa de la Reya..9miles

5. Playa de la Isla..10 miles

6. Playa Bahia de Mazarron..9 miles

The distances are calculated from my villa, it could be further away or nearer to other residents

These beaches are very beautiful to visit, clean and the sea is very tempting though it may be cold during this time of the year.

If you use google map or SatNav, they will be easy to get there. It would be a fantastic day out for the whole family as well.

We hace been here just mover 2 years and haven't got bored yet. There are so many different groups to join from cycling   and walking to sewing,to gardening groups or even the Fast team.  The beaches are on 15 to 20 minutes away  with several to choose from. The best thing to do is come over on holiday and see.  Each area of Camposol has its own uniqueness. Visit the bars on A and B sectors and chat to the locals.  Good luck

Depends on what you are looking for. You can find good value there for a life in the sun. Worth a look. Maybe 10 miles from the sea. But be sure to look at other places nearer the coast. Maybe rent somewhere for a while. Personally I prefer the coast.

Although I agree with some of the comments from people that don't live on Camposol...The op is asking specifically about Camposol.

Have just re-watched that episode, saw it just before we bought last year. For our preference we went for Camposol as that gave us a detached 2 bed 2 bath in our price range. For us Camposol is just what we want. 30 minutes to airport, 20 minutes to beaches (as we are here full time we don't feel the need to be right on the beach) and 40 minutes or so  to Murcia, Cartagena and Lorca, main roads are good and very light traffic compared to UK (Swindon to Bristol on M4 🤬). Only been here 10 months and loving it, looking forward to much more exploring.

Yup, what Phil said :) He's a nice people.

We bought in March 2018, moved here on July 1st 2018.

Loving it.

There are a LOT of good, friendly people here in Camposol, there are a minority of idiots too, but one can easily avoid them. :)

If Camposol was on the coast ...the property's would be 3 times more to buy in fact if you look at the same Massa built 3 Bed 3 bathroom detached villa  with pool in the port you are looking at €350,000+++ ..on Camposol 20 minutes inland you can pick the same one up for around €140,000 I guess this is why Camposol is so popular with the bargain hunters.
