Broad range of accommodations

Camping La Ballena Alegre has no less than eight hundred touring pitches and more than three hundred rental accommodation units (bungalows and chalets). Most of the pitches are spacious and enclosed. Furthermore, the surface is mainly flat and covered with grass, which is perfect for campers. The pitches are well organised: each lane has its own access route.

Holiday paradise for all

Families will immediately feel at home on Camping La Ballena Alegre. Both young and old will be able to cool off in the beautiful outdoor swimming pools. You can, of course, also swim and relax in the largest 'swimming pool' at the campsite: the Mediterranean Sea! You can reach the large beach via one of the roads from the campsite. You can also indulge in windsurfing, waterskiing. snorkelling, scuba diving, sailing and fishing, all across the sea.

Entertainment

The other facilities at the campsite are also geared towards the entire family. Children can play the day away with all the activities and entertainment available. There is also a playground on the premises. Teenagers can keep themselves amused for hours in the recreational area, which includes gaming machines and a billiards table. There are several sports fields open for use. Not to mention that at night, you can show off your latest dance moves at the dance club on the campsite.

TE BROWN, on this campsite in August 2014

Travelling party: Family with children, 12 - 18 years

The pitch was a standard pich and a good size, possibly bigger than some comfort pitches. The toilet and shower facilities were excellent, very modern, clean and plentiful. Food, drinks, staff all good but what we think was poor in comparison to other sites we visited during our holiday was the cost and entertainment. Most expensive site we chose and little entertainment laid on. When it was laid on poor advertisement

Travelling party: Family with children, 12 - 18 years

We stayed here fo two weeks in 2013, it was the best campsite we have ever stayed at, and believe me we have stayed in many. The staff were wonderful always there to help, the pitch was very big and it was as if we had our own beach right outside the tent, the toilet block was at the end of our camping lane so only a quick walk across. We are going back again, I can not wait. The only thing I would like to happen would be more entertainment on the evenings in mid season.
