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.
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.

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.
Handy site for getting off the ferry nice to cycle into Comillas. Showers and toilets good plenty of hot water. Pool was open even though the weather wasn\'t very warm..Stayed for a few days.
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.
Although a narrow gate on entering this great little site offers a friendly reception with some English spoken. Some long pitches allow you to stay coupled which is great for towing a car trailer or even a caravan. Small restaurant offers good quality food and a friendly face. Reception staff allowed us to stay past the normal check out time as our ferry was much later in the evening. In all worth the drive out to this site if your intention is to drive on through Spain the following day or waiting for the ferries to travel home.
Nice site with friendly helpful staff. Toilet block a bit old fashioned but has a bio award & is spotlessly clean. Some pitches large enough to leave the car & caravan hooked up. ideal for ferry ports but let site know in advance in case ferry delayedl
Surprisingly open late October. Very quiet with all seasonal caravans stored off pitch. A good walk to the coast but worth the effort on a fine day. Booked for one night but stayed three. Good stop-off for Santander ferry.
Nice little site set in woodland very close to pleasant villages. Too far to walk to coast, need car or scooter. Toilet block old fashioned but very clean with ample very hot water. Very tranquil in September but pool closed as per normal. Good for couple of days to relax or go off visiting the area and beaches.
