Great location close to fabulous beach - low tide - rocky and not easy to get into the sea - high tide - huge sandy beach allowing you to walk to nearest village which we did on the sunday for the market. Keep and eye on the tides tho. Good facilities - lovely food in restaurant and friendly staff. Close ports for last few days of holiday.

Located by a lovely bay but not much else around. Toilets and showers clean but really dated. A lot of old static caravans vans used on long term basis by locals. Made it feel like we were on a travellers site. Ok as a one night stop.

The location is great being only 100m from a lovely bay. As well as restaurant/bar on site a couple of others also within walking distance . Only stayed 1 night as catching ferry next day but we will return to the area. Site was quiet otherwise toilet/showers would have been stretched. Plenty of hot water and clean but becoming dated in comparison with other ASCI sites. Did hear dogs barking on occasion during the day but quiet at night.

Travelling party: Couple

Initial welcome poor with no site layout offered or . adequate information result getting stuck at a dead end. Site noisy from A8 road traffic and also from constantly barking dogs in adjacent houses even throughout the night. Noisy over the weekend with pitched vehicles very close together. Would really only recommend for overnight stop on way to and from ferry although area around is well worth exploring.

Visited for 3 nights. Warm welcome although limited English spoken. Large camping area approx. half of which are \'static\' vans used by locals. Can be busy at weekends.
Good restaurant on site food quality very good reasonable cost. Access to beach via through restaurant premises.
Toilet/Shower facilities although clean are very dated and cramped.
Convenient site on route to both Santander and Bilbao ferry routes. Would visit again but only for stop overs.

Rather open, characterless site but close to beach and good restaurants. Friendly staff and decent shop. Two buses needed to reach Bilbao and no late buses.

A site with very friendly and helpful staff. I have a large unit and had great difficulty accessing the site from the road, but the staff came to help and were very useful. Do beware when approaching the site from Santander that the turning is very acute and the road surface drops about 30 cm at one point of you are not correctly positioned.
I booked the site for three nights from 27th August, without using ACSI and did not think the ACSI rates applied until a September. When checking-in the owner noticed my ACSI Card and took it from me to alter my booking as the ACSI rate started on the 28th August. A great saving and many thanks to the owner for his homesty.

Entrance to and from the campsite was quite frightening. Very sharp bend with very steep hill to negotiate immediately. We found the pitches to be extremely pleasant with beautiful views. Very noisy during the night with late night revellers coming home talking extremely loudly without any consideration for other campers. Having said that, we would visit the site again as it`s location is very convenient for the ferry.

We stopped for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The site owners were friendly and helpful, it felt safe, the bar/restaurant was excellent value and the swimming close by was superb. I would definitly recommend.

Travelling party: Seniors

Very pleasant site in an extremely good position. Public transport to Bilbao 200 yards away on the main road at the top of the lane. Very good service from the manager when booking in. Convenient restaurant and useful small shop although a little expensive. Beautiful area close to a small beach.
