Approximately 100 km south of Barcelona you will find the quiet, child-friendly family camping site Joan Cat.2, close to the historic former fishing village of Cambrils. The camping site is located right at one of the most beautiful sandy beaches of the Costa Dorada. This spot is ideal for campers who like to enjoy Spanish beaches in peace.
Tall pine trees
The grounds look well kept with pitches of varying size. There are numerous mulberry trees offering ample shade, but you can also opt for a pitch in the sun. Note to owners of campers: quite a few pitches have low hanging branches. Want to hire something? There is a vast range of different mobile homes, studios, apartments and bungalows.
The cosy, round swimming pool is especially suitable for children to cool off. It is also ideal for water aerobics, swimming a few lengths is more difficult, unfortunately. You will find nice wooden decking around the swimming pool and there are ample sun loungers with the odd sun umbrella here and there. The sea close to the camping site is suitable for children: the vast beach slopes gently into the sea. Breakwaters provide calm water.
There is a playground for children and lots of entertainment for all ages. You can also use the fitness room and there is a choice of massages. Walking and cycling enthusiasts will be very happy with the number of trails in the area.
The camping site restaurant has a small menu with good quality dishes. From the restaurant you have a nice view over the camping site. Just outside the camping grounds you will find more eating establishments, with a sea view as a bonus.

The Camping is great. Everything is fine. I think this is more than a three stars Camping.
Couple + Car + 7m Caravan
Reception & Staff were excellent, access to some of the pitches with my 12m outfit was very tight, motor mover is essential. The mature overhanging trees were a little scary particularly as I had had a collision with one at another location. Access to the beach is good and cycling into Cambrils & Salou is safe and easy.
Cambrils is not too big and has a nice feel to the place, especially around the harbour.
A very minor point, but when we paid on departure, we were not offered the choice to pay in Euro's or GBP , so we paid a service charge on our GBP payment.
First impressions are very important and this one does that, the lady in reception was so so pleasant I would have stayed regardless. The shower and toilets are lovely and very clean, the pitches are great very spacious. The location is fantastic so well worth a visit.
Camping familiar, muy bien comunicado con el paseo marítimo de cambrils mediante carril bici. Parcelas con mucha sombra en verano, trató muy agradable con los niños y baños para bebésen buenas condiciones.
Muy recomendable, yo he repetido y volveré a ir.
Es un camping genial, esta cerca de todo, Cambrils a 5 minutos en bici, por su carril, una playa genial y muy buena para niños, las parcelas estan muy bien y con mucha sombra, la piscina algo fria pero muy buena al ser tipo playa y que cubre de menos a mas.
Los baños muy limpios y el personal muy atento, en recepcion gente muy amable y servicial.
En definitiva para mi y mi familia es uno de nuestros campings preferidos.
Lovely site during week but noise on site is awful at weekends & holidays because of unsupervised Spanish children running amok!. Toilet blocks are clean, except at week-ends when children treat them as a play ground. Hot water is a lottery. Soap in loos is a rarity, toilet rolls run out regularly (at week-ends). Trees are very low & an average sized motorhome will have difficulty negotiating branches - damage is often caused. On plus side site is close to beach & cycle route into town.
Para mi, es un camping muy cómodo y tranquilo. El personal muy amable cercano al pueblo de Cambrils encantador.
We have now returned to Campsite Joan 4 years in a row. There are a number of reasons why we return each year and recommend this site to people that we meet on the road. First of all the staff running this site are excellent, nothing and I mean nothing is too much trouble for them. The site is managed by Berta, a member of the family that own the site. She is on site every day, and always available to help and assist her clients. We have stayed on the site in our Camping Car, our Caravan and also stayed in one of their excellent bungalows.
The facilities on site are superb. The bathroom areas are cleaned and serviced twice a day. There is always lots of hot water.
The site is always immaculate, very well maintained by their excellent ground staff.
This site is on the seafront, only a twenty minute walk or a 10 minute cycle ride from Cambrils.
Supermarket and resaurant are open throughout the season. The shopp stocks almost everything you need with freshly baked on site bread daily.
