Camping Sant Pere Pescador

by Guest

Travellers have been coming to the Costa Brava along the north east shoreline of Spain in Catalonia for years. While most of the coastline is known for its wild parties and overdevelopment, the pretty town of Sant Pere Pescador near to Girona is a quiet and peaceful location which is perfect for family camping. The Costa Brave was also voted one of the best tourist destinations by National Geographic in 2012. The town is nice enough, but the real draw for travellers is the vast beach which sketches for more than 7 kilometres. Here, guests can take walks along the beach, sunbathe, and swim. If you are interested in watersports, you can also learn to surf, water ski, kite surf, and windsurf. There are several water sport schools available. There are lifeguards throughout the summer season, as well as beach bars and restaurants along its edge. Nearby is the spectacular Aiguamolls de l'Emproda National Park, an ideal place for hiking and spotting plenty of wildlife.

Though there are several campsites near the town, the best is Las Palmeras , a large but peaceful campsite available to couples, groups, and families, that has everything needed for an unforgettable stay.

Most of the room is dedicated to grassy pitches which are large, ranging between 90 square metres to 120 square metres. Most of them are covered in shade, a welcome relief from the hot Catalonian midday heat. They are all close to the toilet and shower blocks, and have water and electricity hook ups. They are available for tents, motorhomes, and caravans. Pets are welcome, so feel free to bring your dogs onto the pitch.

They can accommodate up to 4 guests making them good for groups or small families. They have a double bed, and a double sofa bed in the 18 square metre space. The studios also have a private bathroom, fully equipped kitchen with microwave and stove, air conditioning in the summer and heating in the winter, and a terrace with tables and chairs.

Here, guests can use the free hot showers, toilets, and there are facilities for families with babies and toddlers. For a campsite, they are well maintained and particularly clean. The toilets and the rest of the site are suitable for people with reduced mobility.

The lovely little bar and restaurant onsite looks more like something in the middle of town than on a campsite. As well as stocking a range of cold beers and wines, La Palmeras also served up a range of traditional Catalan and Spanish dishes cooked with locally sourced produce. Interestingly, the bar also provides a special meal for celiacs. The bar has a television which shows sporting events, particularly football.
