Why stay here ...

Located on the north coast near Santander and open all year, this site is run by husband and wife team Pablo and Maria. Both English speaking and always providing an excellent service, their campsite is friendly and welcoming with pitches set on wide terraces and spotless facilities.

The site is popular in high season and provides plenty of amenities for families, including a pool and sunbathing area, a playground, a well-stocked shop and a restaurant. The beautiful beach is a 15-minute walk.

The spectacular Picos de Europa mountains are easily reached from the site and there are lots of good walking trails that enable visitors to admire the scenery. Buses run to the neighbouring town of Comillas, which is home to the remarkable El Capricho house, designed by Gaudí. The local town square also has plenty of cafés serving fantastic chocolate and churros.

Highly recommend

We have recently returned from a 16 night stay here. The site staff are very friendly, helpful and speak very good English. The site is very well maintained, clean and it is clear the owners take pride in the campsite. The pitches are compact, I recommend you book the larger pitch, which has a water tap, grey water drain and 10 amp hook up. If you have a large van or motorhome, over 7.5 m then book early and make sure you inform them. There are a number of pitches suitable but! The atmosphere of the site is very pleasant and family orientated. There is a very large a clean beach with lifeguards 15 minutes walk from the site. There is a campsite shop but it is very limited in stock, small local supermarkets are close by but the nearest big supermarket is approx 12 miles, however the quality of produce is excellent. If we return to this area, Cantabria, I would definitely return to Oyambre.

Great reception staff.

Our first stopover for one night as we headed into Spain from the Santander ferry in mid September. Due as much to our own error (taking two wrong turnings!) we arrived at the site as the light was going however the young lads on reception were really welcoming even walking over to our pitch and showing us around. Some of the pitches looked quite close and tight on space however the pitch we had for our 7m Motorhome was fine. Washblock facilities a little dated but very clean and hot water in the showers! Before we left in the morning we took the opportunity to take a walk down to the beach via the narrow but quiet road behind the site and obviously then up hill to return! Nothing to steep or strenuous though.

Nice site

I arrived late evening after a delayed ferry crossing but received a nice friendly and helpful welcome. I stayed for a week and enjoyed my time here - helped by some good weather.The site facilities were all good - the pools, gym, bar, toilet block and although I didn't eat in the restaurant I heard good reviews. The towns of Comillas and San Vincente are both close by and worth visiting, with some beautiful countryside around. I would recommend this site - one to return to!

Great site for a family holiday

We have just returned from a two week stay at caravanning Oyambre. After a couple of initial days of bad weather we were lucky enough to have fabulous sunshine most of the days. We explored local beaches and towns and went up to the Picos de Europa. The campsite has lovely views of the mountains. The bathroom facilities were spotlessly clean and we made use of the basic shop and site restaurant. There is also a bar selling very reasonably priced drinks. A 15 minute walk takes you to the local beach which was great. On the downside some of the pitches are very small and the access was pretty tight. Our caravan is 8m long and with the awning/car there wasn't much room around us! Also bear in mind this a lively site in summer, the children loved the facilities and made friends however beware that there is often loud music at night, not from the campsite itself but from the neighbouring bar up the road. We would return.
