Campsite Benista ****

General information
Guide price €35.70

The quiet green family campground Benista in the south of Corsica appears a bit dated, but the simple facilities are sufficient for a stay. The nice thing about this campground is that each campsite is different. The sites are about 100 m2 and partially separated by hedges. The many trees on the site ensure that most campsites have some shade.

The beach of Porticcio is 1.8 km away, about a 10 minute drive from the campground. There is a small supermarket and a few other shops nearby. There are studios and bungalows to rent on the campground. Guests come here for the beautiful, broad white sandy beaches in the area, and the many sporty activities.

Barbecuing together

There is a small but lovely swimming pool (170 m2) on the campground, which borders the river. There is a sports field and a little playground on site. Twice a week in the high season there is an activity program in French and English for the children. For young people from 13 through 18 years of age and for adults, there are also activities planned, such as a communal barbecue. There are regular competitions in ping pong, volleyball, badminton, jeu de boules and tennis.

Many sports

You can play tennis and mini golf for a fee. In the surrounding area there are plenty of options for water skiing, canoeing, diving, sailing, parasailing, horseback riding and there is a disco and a cinema in the area. You can spot wild boar on your walks.


You can travel by boat from the port of Porticcio to Ajaccio. Here there is a market every evening with local products. Also visit the birthplace of Napoleon or the Lac de Tolla reservoir.

Prima camping in het naseizoen. Zeer vriendelijke ontvangst. Sanitair gedateerd, maar erg schoon. Op de fiets, over de stoep, naar stadje en strand. Goede uitleg wat er te doen is in de omgeving. Prijs viel ons mee, Corsica is nu eenmaal duurder.

Nette camping met afgebakende plaatsen door middel van hegjes. Net sanitair. Dame aan receptie kon zelfs een beetje Nederlands. Op fietsafstand van centrum Porticcio.

de bomen op de camping zijn behoorlijk gesnoeid, waardoor het veel opener is geworden met toch voldoende schaduw. het sanitairgebouw is oud, maar men is bezig om het sanitair zelf te vernieuwen. Kortom: de camping is behoorlijk vetrbeterd. het is een prima camping om b.v. Ajaccio te bezoeken. De omgeving, zoals de Gorge\'s du Prunelli, is ook schitterend.

We vonden dit een erg mooie camping, maar erg (te) prijzig. Goed terrein met overwegend veel schaduw, ruime plaatsen en een erg fraai zwembad. Wij hadden wel erg veel last van muggen, die direct aanvielen en op ons vervelend jeukende beten trakteerden. 's Avonds daarom lange broeken en/of insmeren met antimuggenmiddel. Wij hebben hier 4 prettige dagen doorgebracht, maar door de prijs en muggen niet gekozen voor een nog langer verblijf.

De vele plaatsen waren aan de kleine kant, er was een oud dicht sanitairgebouw en voor het andere sanitair een stuk lopen (ligt aan de plaats). Eind juni leek het zo nu en dan wel dicht vwb restaurant en zwembad. Er werd dan te laat omgeroepen dat het restaurant open was, terwijl je aan het eten was. Duidelijk geen 4 sterren waard.

Weinig sanitaire voorzieningen aanwezig en deze worden maar 1x per dag schoongemaakt. Mooie schaduwrijke plekken aanwezig. Mooie zandstranden nabij de camping met gratis parkeren vlakbij het strand. Camping heeft redelijk grote plekken met begroeiing tussen de plekken. Bna geen animatie, er waren een paar mensen aan het bewegen, maar voor kinderen eigenlijk niets.

Camping standard, emplacements convenables, très ombragés, sanitaires insuffisant, entretien leger. Ne mérite pas 4 étoiles, juste correct pour une étape, route bruyante jour et nuit.
