from 6 reviews Write review

The Simos camping site has a unique location in the protected nature reserve on the idyllic island of Elafonisos, which lies to the south of the Peloponnese. Just fifty metres from the camping site, beyond the dunes, lies a spectacular sandy beach along the Mediterranean. Simos is a well-organised, spaciously designed camping site with large pitches for caravans and campers as well as separate areas for tents.

Camping amidst the mountains

Elafonisos is a hilly island: you can even see the green mountains rising around the camping site. However, the site itself is entirely flat, which makes it a perfect place to set up your camping equipment. The property has separate areas for those camping in tents. These are kept apart from the touring pitches for caravans and campers. Nearly all the pitches are in the shade, which is largely provided by hung cloths, but also by trees. 

The clear waters of Simos Beach

The only thing separating Simos Beach, the broad sandy coast along the Mediterranean Sea, from the camping site are the dunes. The beach is composed of fine, white sand, which is fairly unusual for Greece. The water here is crystal clear and the view is stunning: both sides of the bay are enclosed by the island's rugged hills. You can hire a thatched umbrella or a lounger for some additional comfort. 

Souvlaki and cocktails

The cafe and restaurant on the camping site serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. The authentic Greek dishes, like souvlaki, are the highlight, but you can also order baked goods and ice cream. The large covered terrace provides a wonderful seating area in the shade. The camping site also features a mini-mart with a decent range of offerings. The bar on the site, which opens at 10 in the evening, is a great place to spend sultry nights filled with summery music and refreshing cocktails.

Martin, on this campsite in May 2019


Travelling party: Couple

Wunderschöne Insel, angenehmer Campingplatz mit traumhaftem, sauberem Strand, blieben länger als geplant.

Wir waren von diesem CP etwas enttäuscht - doch der Strand hat alles entschädigt.

Stellplatz Nähe beim Strand nicht möglich - die sind für Griechen reserviert. Auch mit Meerblick ist nix erhältlich da man über einen Hügel zum
Strand gelangt - der wirklich traumhaft ist.

Die Mitarbeiter im „Self- Service“ wollen nicht wirklich arbeiten und verstehen auch kein Englisch oder wollen es nicht - habe dann versucht mir Google Translate ins griechische zu übersetzen.

Sanitäranlagen sind für die Größe von Platz sehr wenig bemessen 4 duschen u 4 Klos pro Geschlecht - nur ein Abwaschplatz mit drei Einheiten.

Mini Market Mitarbeiterin dürfte auch gereizt gewesen sein, hat die Produkte förmlich aus der Hand gerissen und hingeknallt.

Alles in allem ist die Insel wirklich schön - vielleicht hat ja mal ein anderer Betreiber auch die Möglichkeit einen CP zu eröffnen.

Personal war unfreundlich, in der Nacht lief Partymusik bis 3 Uhr, für Familien absolut ungeeignet! Die Nachtruhe wird nicht eingehalten. Es gibt angeblich eine Security, nur leider haben wir von dieser nichts bemerkt. Von verschiedenen Stellen kam laute Musik.
Der Strand ist absolut sehenswert, nur leider total überfüllt. Es ist eher ein Tagesausflug mit der Fähre sinnvoll. Wlan funktionierte leider nicht. An den Duschen stand man teilweise bis 30 Minuten an, das Wasser ist aufbereitet und man klebt danach trotzdem noch. Es gibt definitiv zu wenige Duschen..für ein Auto und Dachzelt muss man leider genauso viel bezahlen wie mit Wohnmobil/ Wohnwagen. Auf anderen Campingplätzen war man da kulanter..
