Why stay here ...

Located in a tranquil area of the Cabo de Gata Natural Park, the site is surrounded by palm trees and close to magnificent stretches of desert-like coastline. This peaceful, friendly site is popular with British guests thanks to its neat, gravel pitches, which are separated by hedges and have plenty of shade, and its clean facilities. An excellent shop, restaurant and bar are open year-round and set close to the swimming pool.

Bird watchers will enjoy a trip to Salinas de Acosta, which is home to flocks of flamingos, among other birds. There are walking and cycling opportunities in the Natural park, while San Jose has a beautiful cove and impressive marina with some excellent restaurants serving Andalusian dishes and wines from La Mancha.

Worth a visit

We stayed here for 2 weeks Jan 2018 and felt this deserved someone to give it a decent review. If you appreciate total peace and quiet and are happy to create your own entertainment , it’s definately worth including in your trip. Good pitches, very clean , if slightly tired facilities, super little on site shop and bar. Ignore comments about the poly tunnels, it’s thier industry, I have never seen so many tomatoes and you soon stop focusing on them when there is so much more to see. It really is desert in this area, however it’s not that far to good towns such as La Canada and Almería where you will find everything. Great for walking and dogs, good beaches. Some real high spots like San Jose, which is absolutely beautiful, perfect little cove, super classy marina and some really nice restaurants. Beware of shared water on the pitch you need an adapter.

Almeria Campsites (and Plastic Greenhouses)

Hi, Sept 2017. Didnt stop on site but did a drive in visit. No comment therefore as to facilities. Approach is passing plastic greenhouses and run down scrubland. Decent walk to any shops. Almeria region is now totally blighted by the Plastic Greenhouse and their Horticulture. Have a read and view pictures on here :- https://www.ecowatch.com/europes-dirty-little-secret-moroccan-slaves-and-a-sea-of-plastic-1882131257.html This site is on the fringe of the greenhouses as it is in the National Park area so has been spared a bit. Dry region, plenty of sunny days. We would consider shorter stay in this region only but you may like it. Almeria's relatively quiet Airport is nearby. Reasonably tedious drive from the Motorway to access. Google search the area carefully beforehand. There are few Campsites in this region which is maybe why CMC are including these in listings.

Wall to wall Brits!

Don't get me wrong I love my countymen as much as the next man but when I go abroad I like to meet other cultures. The site itself was very crowded and the pitches were small. Surrounded on 1 side by the oft mentioned plastic greenhouses and the other by scrubland it is not the most beautiful of places to stay. Walking to the beach takes 30 mins and that is nice but that's about it unless you drive out. The facilities were generally good but with the extra metered electricity charge (11 euros for 2 nights!), this was the most expensive site on our trip by far. One to avoid in the future.
