Camping - Campsites


There are nearly 200 registered camping grounds around Andalucía, divided into 1st, 2nd and 3rd categories according to the facilities available. Most camp sites are only open in summer and can get extremely busy in peak season, so book ahead.

As a general guide there are three categories. Third will have basic amenities such as showers and toilets. Second will also have a swimming pool, bar, cafeteria and/or restaurant and hot water, as well as laundry, and telephone. First will be well-equipped with a supermarket and even, in larger camp sites, a post office and money exchange. Other amenities might include a children's play area, and sports facilities such as tennis and racquetball courts. Some camping grounds will also have bungalows, complete with toilet, TV and kitchen, should you prefer a roof over your head!

It is worth considering these categories when deciding where to pitch your tent: do you have your own transport? If not, choose a camp site either within walking distance of a town or with its own supermarket (1st) and/or café/restaurant (1st and 2nd). How long are you planning to stay in your accommodation? If more than a week, laundry facilities will come in handy (1st and 2nd).

The good news about seaside camping in Andalucía is that in summer, larger (official) seaside camp sites become party centres in their own right.

Camping has recently enjoyed a huge surge in popularity. From being the preserve of socks-and-sandals, thermos-of-tea types, it has evolved into the trendy travel alternative for free-spirited, independent types who prefer to wake to the sound of birdsong rather than the sound of traffic, enjoy cooking up their meals on a stove and relish the beautiful rural settings.
