from 9 reviews Write review

Near the wide sandy beaches of the North Sea, only a few kilometres from Den Helder, you will find Camping de Zwaluw. It is a small-scale camping site with spacious pitches without shade. The camping site is quiet and ideal for a beach holiday. Furthermore, the camping site is an ideal base for excursions in the area. It is located on the boundary of a vast nature reserve with wide beaches. The beach is only a 5-minute walk and Den Helder is approximately 7 kilometres away.

Spacious pitches 

As you drive to the camping site you will pass tulip fields and cross dunes. Driving past the coloured fields in spring is a glorious sight and at times you can even smell the hyacinths all the way to the camping site. The camping pitches on Camping de Zwaluw are spacious and open. Sun worshippers feel right at home here, because there are no trees on the camping site to provide shade.  You can also choose for a rental accommodation. There are plain mobile homes.

The playground on the camping site has been entirely renovated since 2016. They now have an air trampoline, slides and climbing frames. There is a playhouse for the little ones next to the reception. Did you bring teenage children along? Challenge them to a game on the beach football field. The beach and the sea are only a 5-minute walk from the camping site. A walk through the dunes leads you to the wide beach.

Travelling party: Single

Sind jetzt das 5. mal auf dem Platz. Sind immer freundlich empfangen worden. Der Platz ist sehr ruhig und die Sanitäranlagen sind gepflegt. Das Personal ist immer hilfsbereit und packt mit an, wenn zum Beispiel bei Sturm ein Vorzelt notabgebaut werden muss.
Kommen immer gerne wieder.

Andrea, on this campsite in July 2017


Travelling party: Family with children, 12 - 18 years

Ein schöner, kleiner Campingplatz direkt hinter der Düne. Zum tollen Sandstrand ca 10 Minuten zu Fuß.
Hunde sind willkommen
Zwei recht neue und gepflegte Sanitär Gebäude mit ausreichend Duschen und Toiletten.
Relativ günstiger Preis für Mensch und Hund.
Nettes Personal.
Wir hatten einen schönen Urlaub.
Lediglich meine Tochter (14),war etwas vom schlechten WLAN Empfang enttäuscht. Sie hat dann regelmäßig neben der Rezeption gesessen, dort war der Empfang gut.
Für uns Erwachsene war das Internet unwichtig ;)
Einkaufen in ca 2km Entfernung.
