In a gentle sloping landscape, some 4 km from the beautiful coastal resort of Comillas, lies the friendly family camping site El Helguero. You are camping here on an attractive terraced camping site with a friendly Spanish atmosphere. The demarcated pitches are located along a street. You can pitch your tent on the lawn. Apart from the 60 permanent pitches, there are 240 touring pitches on grounds measuring 6.5 ha. From the terraces you have a beautiful view of the mountains. There are 26 rental accommodation units on the camping site.

Charming restaurant

In the attractive restaurant (with bar and terrace) you have a wide choice of affordable, Spanish dishes. You will meet guests from different countries. Snacks and take-away meals are also available here. The small camping site shop has a reasonable selection. You can get fresh bread and local specialities every day.

Hit the dance floor

The outdoor swimming pool measures 200 m2, spacious enough for a few lengths. There is a toddler pool of approx. 15 m2. Children will have a great time in a playground or can join the entertainment programme (English and Spanish). In the evenings guests enjoy the lovely Spanish life: dancing on folk music or popular music (disco).

Tours through an undulating landscape

From the camping site you can follow signposted walking routes. You can also take lovely cycling tours through the gently undulating landscape. The camping site offers excursions to explore the area together with other guests. This is also a great way to get to know your camping neighbours a bit better! You can do horseback riding, mountain biking and surfing in the vicinity.

Travelling party: Couple

Arrived on a Saturday, road outside full of cars, as we turned in reception opened barrier which was a good sign. Busy bar, restaurant and pool by entrance hence the cars.
Offered choice of pitches and walked thru to pitch, some odd shape, long and thin but whilst a busy site and weekend it was peaceful at night.
Facilities old and no privacy at washbasins but very clean, rubbish bins by toilet facilities not outside gates.
It is possible to get a bus to Comillas by walking 8/900 meters up to main road, timetable given by reception but being Spain bus came eventually. Well worth trip to amazing little old town.

We just stayed overnight on our way from Santander, though it took a little longer to get to the site than I thought. As with many sites I guess it could feel quite crowded in high season, if it was full. We had plenty of room and had the option of sun or shade. The bar/restaurant was open and the food was simple but good. Reception staff were friendly and helpful though the same couldn't be said of the bar staff.

The site is in a rural area and the nearby village is very small.

Nicely positioned site but once again No view from our pich.. or indeed any pitch that we could see..a common fault in Spanish sites. Otherwise perfectly pleasant.
