Campoamor and Dehesa de Campoamor are located in the south of Orihuela Costa and are the most affluent of its residential areas. They really are just different parts of the same area but as is often the case in Spain have two different names. It is also one of the least commercial areas in Orihuela Costa, with a spattering of shops, bars and restaurants along its beach and marina, further shops and bars in its residential areas and one main commercial centre.
