Stayed here with my husband and 2 year old daughter.
It was a brilliant campsite. Facilities were all good. Toilets and shower block were clean (although odd set up with the toilet roll, but they do supply it). The showers were really good, nice and strong.
The beach being straight off the campsite was really useful. Supermarket was relatively large and well stocked. Fresh bread and croissants every day even though we were out of season.
Swimming pool on site was also good, nice size and a kiddies pool. Lots of sun loungers. Restaurant looked good, although never ate there. Did have a pizza from the takeaway and a crepe from the crepe bar. Both of which were lovely.
Location was also really good. Supermarkets all within a short drive. Loads to see locally, Figueres, Cadaques and lots more.
We have stayed at this site 3 times, and have found it very hard to beat.
Beachside location and pleasant pool area make the site ideal for families.
The site is large, but the different areas have their own distinct atmosphere. The area nearest the beach is busier and the pitches have less shade. Further back, towards the entrance, is quieter and shadier.
Although the site is large, we have never experienced problems with excessive noise, as the bars close at midnight.
There is a well stocked shop, a laundry, and lots of activities available, including free tennis.
Toilet blocks are superb - spotlessly clean, endless hot water, and queues at peak times only.
As previously mentioned, the site is a boat owner's dream, with plenty of moorings available on site, and direct access to the sea. Boat owners return year after year for this reason - ourselves included!
Surrounding area and coastline is attractive and interesting. The Dali museum at Figures is well worth a visit; Girona and Barcelona are easy to reach by car.
My Family of 5 stayed on this site for two and half weeks. We chose the site because it was geared up for people with boats, had it's own moorings on a small canal / river that comes into the site, but also with direct access to the beach.
The canal feeds into a small lagoon which itself is fed from a quiet river. The lagoon sits just behind the beach and has a narrow access way into the sea. The campsite has it's own dredger to keep the access channel open and deep enough for boats with outboard engines.
Last year we took out sailing dingy with us. We kept it on the lagoon beach. Had no problems with anyone interfering with the boat. There was one other boat and a windsurfer left there too.
To one side of the lagoon is a sailing school where you can rent boats and windsurfers as well as pay for lessons if required.
Overall the campsite is really nice and well run with very good facilities. Not the best I have stayed in, but still very good.
Its is very large, so choose your pitch carefully depending on where you prefer to be near to.
Camping pitches vary in size, but I would say most are 70-80m sq. My 7.2m caravan with awning and sun canopy on the front of that filled the pitch completely. There were few pitches any larger. My Car had squeezed along the front of the pitch, as was the case with most people. Therefore the road access was made very narrow.
This can potentially be a problem when arriving. We arrived early afternoon when many people were at the pool and beach. I could barely get the car and van to the pitch, literally had a couple of cms to spare either side.
Shade is poor in the middle section of the site, so many people purchased from the shop very large sunshade sheets. These are the sort with tiny holes in so they let some light through but also the wind too. As we were pitched in this area, it took some getting used to, as it resembled in our opinion a refuge camp. However, as August progressed the campsite thinned out and it looked a bit better, also was able to park one empty pitches which helped.
You need to book in peak season but cannot reserve a pitch. They will highlight those that a free on a map for you and also recommend some based on what you would like. You then go and choose.
We are going back this year, as had a great time and its great for the boat and for my son fishing.
Local area is very nice, but of course busy.
Toilet facilities are excellent, plenty of showers, but can queue a little bit at peak times.
