Camping La Bella Vista, Manilva

Camping La Bella Vista is a popular seafront caravan and camping site located ajacent to the A-7 coast road in the west of Manilva municipal district. It is found between Puerto de la Duquesa and Punta de la Chulera.

A kilometre west of Camping La Bella Vista, is Puerto de la Duquesa with its recreational port and accompanying 18 hole golf facilities. To the east of Punta de la Chullera, just  around the corner is  Sotogrande which offers an upmarket marina, world class golf, polo, private international schools, numerous restaurants and an outdoor weekend market bartering away everything from antiques and fine arts to African imports and homespun arts and crafts.

The beaches of Manilva in the west sport low cliffs and rugged areas in contrast to the flatter sandy beaches stretching up and down the coast on either side.  These are comfortably warm, Mediterranean waters, thanks to the fact that we haven't yet rounded the Punto de Europa and headed west towards Atlantic temperatures. Diving and snorkeling here is popular and rod fishing is excellent.


Showers, Laundarette, Office, Restuarant, Shop, Beach Bar, Swimming pool.


The restaurant is popular with campsite residents and locals alike. Open every day untill 22.00 there is a daily menu and on Sunday lunchtime a traditional Sunday roast. A singer / pianist often provides entertainment. Flamenco dancer ofter perform on weekend evenings in the summer.


Camping Chullera was opened on this site in the 1960s. It was so popular that Camping Chullera II was opened a km to the west a few years later. Both campings were closed in 2005 in antisipation of the sites being develoed as apartments. This never happened and Camping la Bella Vista opened in 2014. The site of Camping Chullera II (See photo from 1960s) was cleared. In 2022 Manilva Town Hall anounced that the 34.000m2 site would be reclassified with one third for apartment construction and two thirds open municipal green space.
