Campomanes Bay is about is several minutes boat ride further south of Punta Ballo. Campomanes Bay, a former port area, is now a protected marine sanctuary full of diverse marine life including fish, coral and a couple of shipwrecks for the scuba diving enthusiasts.
As you enter Campomanes Bay, there are rugged, towering limestone cliffs, which I was reliably informed by a former geologist co-worker of mine, were formerly underwater coral formations. When you look closer, it’s easy to see how this could’ve occurred.

The beach of Campomanes Bay isn’t the most pristine beach, but it’s clean and very peaceful with only local fisherman around.
