The flat terrain of the campsite is subdivided into different pitches. Regular guests are generally more at the back and tourist pitches are at the front of the campsite. The site has large plots with space for 120 pitches. The sanitation is neatly arranged by the campsite staff. There are also some rental options.

Right next to the campsite, at the foot of a high mountain, a sandy beach appears at low tide. A normal sandy beach is about one kilometre away. At high tide this is the ideal terrain for surfers. Surfboards can be rented at the campsite for a fun day.

Prima camping pal tegen de kust, baaien en strand. Mooie plekken met gras en enige schaduw. Goed onderhouden en schoon sanitair. Zeer vriendelijk en behulpzaam personeel. Leuke stadjes en steden in de omgeving.
Groot gemis: voorzieningen voor gehandicapten!!!

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.

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.

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.

Campsite is between the mountains and the sea; beach just a few minutes walk. Steep access to site. Ideal site if travelling to or from the ferry at Santander.

Scherpe afdaling naar de camping, geen probleem maar ga niet in een rij staan. Weggaan met aanloop en hopen dat niet de weg wordt blokkeerd, vooral als het geregend heeft kan het problemen geven. 4wiel geen enkel probleem. Internet zeker niet over de hele camping. Betalen zeker niet erg maar dan wel goed svp. Mooie grote plaatsen. De zeer drukke weg vonden wij storend, dus achter op de camping. Zandstrand dichtbij, ideaal. Camping ligt aan hoge rotsformatie. Mooi tussen Santander en Bilbao

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.

Trotz der Nähe zum Strand hat man vom Platz keine Sicht darauf. Stattdessen schaut man auf Baugrundstücke und eine Felswand mit Tunnel, in der die nahe Autobahn verschwindet. Diese ist auch nachts zu hören. Die sanitären Anlagen sind groß, aber sehr schlicht, dafür sauber. Steile Zufahrt!

Christa Beier - Kohorst, on this campsite in September 2018

Der CP liegt unterhalb der stark befahrenen Straße. Die Zufahrt ist extrem steil und eng. Die Stellplätze sind winzig. Der Platz ist jetzt, Mitte September, stark belegt. Die Nachbarn rechts und links und hinten stehen in ca. 2 m Entfernung, man hört wirklich alles. Das Personal war sehr freundlich und spricht gut Englisch, aber das Einchecken dauert sehr lange. Die Stromanschlüsse müssen erst aufgeschlossen werden, natürlich auch vor der Abfahrt. Auch das dauert. Die Sanitäranlagen sind sehr alt, aber sehr sauber. In und vor den Duschen gibt es keine Ablagemöglichkeit. Die Umgebung ist recht hübsch und man kann sicherlich gut wandern. Die Bar hat günstige Platos Combinados die recht gut schmecken. Es gibt auch einen kleinen Laden mit dem Nötigsten. Wir sind nach einer Nacht wieder weggefahren. Bevor man Wifi kauft, unbedingt ausprobieren, ob man am Platz Empfang hat. Ich habe umsonst gekauft.
