Lovely site perfectly located, well maintained and the beach is just a moment away. We liked it a lot and would recommend.

Camping ne pratiquant pas la carte ACSI ce qui implique des tarifs trop importants pour la qualité des lieux.
Sanitaires très vétustes voir désuets, parcelles non délimitées.
Seul avantage la proximité de la plage, ville 3 kms, commerces idem, route très passante.

Sanitaire pour handicapé bien entretenu.
Nous avons fair deux Passages dans cet endroit et avions notre place près de la réception, nous n\'avons pas du de proplème avec Wifi. Possibilité d\'achat à Tarifa. Endroit idéal pour faire une pose avant la traversée.

The site is in a great position by the sea with views across the sea to Africa. There were some larger plots but they were all full. We arrived without booking early August so made do with a smaller plot. The site had lots of groups of young men and women enjoying the surfing scene. However they flocked to the nightclub just outside the site and returned back to the site at about 0700.
Due to this the toilet blocks were full of them getting ready to go out in evening and then again in the morning. This led to the toilets being quite dirty with lots of things just disguarded such as toiletries and in some instances soiled clothing by the toilets.
My wife found the female toilet block especially busy, unclean etc.
There is a terrific restaurant just outside the site.
Overall we enjoyed the location but would probably look for another site.
The staff were very friendly and helped us book a day trip to tangier so which was brilliant with transfers to and from the site included. A brilliant day.

No lo recomiendo en absoluto. En primer lugar llegamos un viernes y hubo fieston en las parcelas de al lado hasta las 5:30 de la madrugada y el personal del camping no apareció a llamarles la atención en ningún momento; lo cual se repitió el sábado hasta las 3:00 de la mañana. En los baños ( bastante sucios) no había papel y uno de los días tampoco agua caliente. No nos avisaron de que el precio de tener sombra en la parcela ( ya que muchas no tienen) era q los cientos de palomas q había nos cagaran todo: tienda, ropa, coche....en fin no volveré ninlo recomendare nunca.

Camping met directe toegang tot een slikkengebied en erg breed zandstrand. Er wordt hier erg veel aan kitesurfen gedaan. Afrika op 15km erg goed zichtbaar. Erg toffe camping met veel groen. Goed sanitair, kleine winkel en bar. Goede gratis wifi. Met fiets kan je via vlonderpaden langs het strand tot in Tarifa, centrum van het kitesurfen. Erg gezellig stadje!

Een heerlijke camping.Keurig sanitair.Hulpvaardig personeel.
Men moet echter wel bedacht zijn op veel wind!!
Onze zoon ging al een aantal keren om te surfen maar ik heb er niet bij stilgestaan dat er heel vaak veel wind is!
Tarifa zelf is een leuke plaats en een overtocht met de boot naar Tanger is een belevenis!!
Je kunt er heerlijk langs het strand wandelen.
