from 56 reviews Write review

In La Spezia, in a valley on the Ligurian coast, you will find camping La Sfinge. This simple terraced campsite is an ideal operating base from which to visit Cinque Terre and Portofino. The free shuttle bus takes you in less than ten minutes to Deiva Marina, where you'll find not only the train station, but also the beach.

Popular with tent campers

La Sfinge is a friendly campsite with limited space. On less than two hectares you'll find over a hundred touring pitches, twenty permanent pitches and almost forty rental accommodations. Therefore the pitches are tight, but they do differ in size. Because they are hardly delimited, you unfortunately have less privacy. The terrain is sloping, with many terraces and stairs.

On the lower part of the campsite there are pitches for caravans and camper vans. The tent pitches are higher, on shady terraces. From the higher part of the campsite you have a beautiful view over the valley.

For a short stay

Although it is often busy at the campsite, especially in high season, it is always quiet. Most campers only come here to shower and sleep. On the campsite itself there is not much to do. There is no swimming pool, entertainment or restaurant, not even a campsite shop. Luckily there is a supermarket and an Italian restaurant at hundred meters from the campsite.

Clean sanitary facilities

The sanitary facilities on the campsite are excellent: a bit dated, but spotless, with nice showers. Do you want to relax for a day? The shuttle bus will take you to Deiva Marina beach in ten minutes.

Travelling party: Family with children, 4 – 12 years

Liked - Bus gratuito.
La playa es bonita i con aguas limpias

Disliked - Todo muy viejo, la parcela estava bajo arboles frutales , llena de fruta podrida, moscas y mosquitos . Lavabos con falta de higiene.
Amperaje ridiculo en los dias q estamos , no llegaba ni a 3.amp
Si vais a visitar cinqueterre os aviso , es muuuuy caro el billete para lo que se va a ver . No volveria.

Liked - Good place.
Disliked - Too expensive for what you get. There is also not a good bbq, which was promised by our booking and we paid for it.

Travelling party: Family with children, 12 - 18 years

Liked - Large pitches. Unfortunately no facilities for children or teenagers. A tabletennis would have been great for the youth.
Location of camping is perfect for daytrips to Cinque Terre, Genua or the beaches on the coast.

Liked - To my opinion the camping is a really good stay becomming a member of the Cinqueterra touristindustry. Every 1,5 hour a bus brings you to the trainstation. Very kind ! But in opposite to the word touristindustry the camping is intimate en friendly with good privacy. The village/beach we liked also. Really Italian atmosphere. Relaxed and kind people
Disliked - Nothing

Hele leuke camping. Erg aardig personeel. Schoon wel wat verouderd sanitair. Mooie plek om trips te maken naar Cinque Terre en bijv. Portofino. Shuttlebus gaat heel vaak naar het station

Prettige niet te grote camping in Deiva Marina. Pendelbusje van en naar treinstation. Vandaar goede verbinding met Cinque Terre.
Zeer vriendelijk personeel.

A revisit for us. The site continues to be very popular and if you know you are going I recommend you book. We arrived by lunchtime and we got a space in the car park with 7 others! You get electric in the car park and excellent WiFi as you are next to the point but it’s a not a pitch. The reception lady then proceeded to have to turn many people away as she just couldn’t fit anymore in. Electric is 3amp so don’t come expecting to use your Kettle. Still good showers, no push buttons, good power shower and hot. The toilet and shower facilities are old but they are cleaned twice a day and they work well...don’t judge the book by the cover. They run the shuttle bus to and from the train station to go to the cinque Terre or portafino. There is a great supermarket just outside the site. Worth noting as you enter and exit the site watch the steep lip from road to site, several campers and caravans caught this lip, swing over and miss it and its not problem. For the cinque terre you buy a return ticket to Monterosso and then get off at Monterosso (1st village) and buy a 5 villages ticket which allows you to travel all day to all villages back and forth as you wish.

camping heeft redelijk kleine plaatsen, wij hebben het toevallig getroffen met de grootste plaats op de camping. De sanitairgebouwen zijn hier en daar wel aan onderhoud toe, terwijl b.v. de toiletpotten super modern en hygienisch zijn. Het geheel wordt wel goed schoongehouden.
de Wifi op de camping is goed te ontvangen en gratis.

Liked - Eindrucksvolle Landschaft mit vielen Möglichkeiten - nicht nur die 5 Dörfer sondern die gesamte Umgebung sind eine Reise wert.
Disliked - In den Cinque terre selbst ist zu viel Massentourismus und das wirkt sich - wie üblich - negativ auf das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis aus.
