On the south coast of Spain between the towns of Almeria and Motril in eastern Andalusia, you will find this newly constructed camping site. Camping Mar Azul Balerma offers its guests first class facilities on a level and open terrain. The fishing village of Balerma is only a short distance away and at approx. 10 km from the camping site you will find the attractive small town of Almerimar with a lively harbour packed with restaurants.

All possible flags of Europe welcome you from the through road, which runs parallel to the sea. The camping site is located a bit further off the road. The helpful Dutch owner has built a complete and relaxing camping site in a short period of time in a region which is very popular with hibernators. But also in summer months, this is a paradise. This is certainly the case for families, also due to the entertainment programme and the lovely swimming pool.

Palm trees

On camping site Mar Azul Balerma you can find sunny pitches everywhere and the vegetation is still young. Most of the pitches are provided with shade cloths. Pitches are given an extra tropical touch with a palm tree on each pitch. The pitches with loose gravel are located along several streets which are well-illuminated. In the centre of the camping site are a number of colourful wooden bungalows in a row.

Arabian atmosphere in the mountains

A short drive towards the north brings you to Granada where the Alhambra towers above the city. This impressive palace complex from the times of the Moors in on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Travelling party: Family with children, 12 - 18 years

This is a lovely site with big pitches and plenty of shade. The toilet blocks are immaculate and cleaned regularly. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The beach 100 meters from site and we can take our dog on it, and we could wash her off back on the site in their own shower room afterwards. A beautiful pool with easy access for people with disabilities. Food in restaurant good quality and value love the pizzas but drinks a bit expensive. The village 5 minutes in motorhome 10 minutes walking with great seafood bars. All in all a great site will return again.

We hebben niet anders dan veel lof over de camping.
De doucheblokken zijn super warm water en goede douchekop, goed onderhouden.
Goede ontvangst op het onthaal.
Eten super lekker.
Zeer vriendelijk personeel je alles aan mag vragen, helpen doen ze
op een vriendelijke manier.
Super zeker een aanrader.

A well appointed campsite with good facilities and friendly staff. The nearby town has nothing really to offer and you are surrounded by poly-tunnels. The only real negative for us was that the water tasted funny (almost like sea water) but this will not deter us from using it again.

An diesem Campingplatz gibt es nichts auszusetzen. Rein gar nichts. So sollte ein Platz sein, es stimmt einfach alles. Vom freundlichen Personal über die Sanitären Anlagen, Schwimmbad, Waschmaschinen Tumbler alles perfekt und sehr sauber. Nur die Umgebung ist nicht so mein Ding. Mit dem Fahrrad kann man tolle Ausflüge machen, zB. nach Almerimar ect. Zum Einkaufen auch kein Problem.

This is not a review of the campsite facilities as we turned around at the gate but more a view on the location of the site. There is no mention in the ACSI book or previous reviews that it is surrounded by miles of white plastic greenhouses in a less than picturesque and barren landscape. The whole scenery along the A7 between Almeria and Motril (and beyond) is blighted by plastic tents, it isn't a journey we will repeat.

Wir waren 3 Tage auf diesem CP. Der Platz verdient die Bestnoten. Für uns war das einer der besten Plätze während unseren 5 wöchigen Spanien Ferien. Die Sanitäranlagen sind sehr sauber und alles perfekt fast luxuriös eingerichtet. Einfach top. Die Parzellen schön gross auf jeder Parzelle Frischwasser und Abwasser. Der Pool sauber mit festen Sonnenschirmen. Der preis von 15 E mit der acsi Karte hat uns überrascht. Der Platz wird sehr Professional geführt. Nur empfehlenswert.

Wir sind zum Überwintern auf diesen Platz durch ACSI gekommen. Die Acsikarte wird bei längeren Aufenthalt nicht benötigt da man mit dem Rabatt System von MarAzul dann besser wegkommt. Ein großer Supermarkt ist nicht weit vom Platz Brot usw bekommt man aber auch am Campingplatz,, Der Strand ist sehr weitläufig zum Spazieren gehen auch Fahrrad fahren auf der Straße nach Almerimar macht Spaß. Wir haben es nicht Bereut uns für den Platz entschieden zu haben.

Friendly and informative staff. Site has good size pitches with individual hook up and water, the surface is large gavel. There is little shade as the trees and shrubs have not fully developed due to it being a new site. There is a bar/restaurant which does meals of standard quality. Free Tapas with drinks. The shower and toilet block are immaculate. There is hot water for clothes washing. There is also a cubicle for showering the dog. The beach is on the opposite side of the road. 10 minute walk into the local village where there is a supermarket, bars and restaurants (a lot closed for the winter). The site is surrounded by cultivating crops which are all grown under plastic sheeting, there is miles and miles of it!
