Accommodation options

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. The campsite has a total of two mobile homes, with two rooms and a kitchenette. And the campsite also has six tents available.


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.


Children will have fun at the campsite's large playground. They can clamber in the play equipment or play a game of table tennis. There are also various walking and cycling routes around the campsite. These routes are of medium difficulty and ideal for exploring the neighbourhood.

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!!!

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

Gedateerde camping. Sanitair erg basic. Het strandje op 3 minuten loopafstand maar ook daar zie je dat het gedateerd is. Er is een goeie busverbinding naar Bilbao, wij zijn met de auto gegaan, ging ook prima. ik snap de prijs/kwaliteit verhouding niet. in vergelijking met andere campings te duur.

Een zeer dure camping dat erg weinig te bieden had.
Midden op het terrein lag een berg vuil van de jaarplaatshouders. De wasbakken bij het sanitair waren erg vies. De WIFI werkte niet maar we kregen ons geld niet terug. De mevrouw die op de receptie werkte was zeer onvriendelijk en ongastvrij. Het terrein was niet onderhouden. Er was veel lawaai van de snelweg en van de vele honden van de huizen rondom de camping. De volgende dag zijn we 19 km doorgereden naar een nieuwe camping, alles wat Playa Arenillas niet had was daar wel.
