Campsite Las Hortensias Cat.1

General information

Do you like the combination of sea and mountains? If so, Camping Las Hortensias is the place for you. You are staying here on the green coast of Spain, the Costa Verde. The renowned Parque Nacional Picos de Europa is situated in the area. Moreover, the camping site has direct access to a fine sandy beach.

Attractive hydrangeas

You will be staying among an abundance of hydrangeas on the grounds. The pitches are located in long rows on a lawn along paved roads. Some have a sea view and some are partly shaded. Rows of trees, hedges and a few buildings provide shelter against the wind. The camping is surrounded by tree-covered hills. The sanitary facilities on the camping site are new and are cleaned daily.

Beautiful sandy beach

It takes less than a minute to walk to the beautiful and sheltered sandy beach, bordering the camping site. For children (possibly for adults, too) this is one big play paradise. The considerable tidal difference will allow you to amble between the rocks, where there are lovely little water pools for children. There is also a great eating establishment at the beach. From here you have a superb sea view. Over weekends, many Spanish day visitors flock to the bay, but during the week the hotel and camping guests have the place virtually to themselves.

Fun and games

Apart from the beach, children will enjoy the playground and soccer field.

Great daily menus

The camping shop has a generous range. Feel like a luxury meal out? The adjacent hotel offers a good daily menu at discounted prices to camping guests.

Travelling party: Family with children, 4 – 12 years

Liked - Great access to the beach
Disliked - Play area inaccessible as waterlogged, the campsite needs opening up and the trees cutting back as nothing could dry due to shade, pitches were wet and we had mould on on our tent after a week there. Was very happy to leave and move onto our next site.

Travelling party: Seniors

Fabulous location unfortunately it had been raining and we got stuck resulting in having to be towed of. That was before we even hooked up, so we left. Not ACSI so pricey. Fabulous toilets and showers.

Marten - Brielle, on this campsite in July 2016


Travelling party: Family with children, 4 – 12 years

Liked - Beach acces. Most beautiful location!
Bath and toilet facilities and cleanness
Coffee in the morning at the bar

Disliked - Noisy neighbors who where offended when I asked them to turn of their cars engine at 23:45!
In general there where a lit if children still shouting and screaming after 23:30. For us Dutch people that is very unusual. Getting our own children to sleep at their normal bedtime was not possible and even sleeping after 23:00 was impossible.

Travelling party: Family with children, 4 – 12 years

Fantastic area with beautiful beach, 100 metres from pitch and great view of the sea. Amazing rock pools and caves when the tide is out. Very clean and friendly staff. Noisy until about 12 but quitens down then. Couldn't park car next to tent which was initially annoying. Will go back next year.
