Wonderful elevated position overlooking coast of Northern Spain and South West France. Easy access from junction 13 of motorway. Sanitary facilities clean and more than adequate for numbers of campers.
Most staff are young, helpful and very friendly. The small on site pool was not open when we visited in mid June.
Good for visiting the many beautiful beaches in the area also good walking area and bird watching.
The bay that the campsite overlooks is not really appropriate for swimming as it tends to have lots of rubbish washed up on its shoreline.
Petrol station within a mile of campsite. Most pitches are flat although one or two might be slightly sloping.
The steep incline when leaving site should be manageable for most units.
We chose this campsite because we wanted to visit Bilbao, and the 2 sites which are nearer the city had off-putting reviews! From Itxaspe it's 55 km to Bilbao which is fine for those with a car, but if you want to use bikes or public transport it's not practical. The site is in a beautiful location high above the sea, with sea views from some pitches. There is a footpath down to the sea from the camp, but it's very steep - 10 minutes to get down, and about 40 to get back up! It's a fairly small site, level and grassy with some trees. There are not many large pitches and there are some tight corners, making it awkward for larger outfits. It's excellent for tents, with plenty of small grassy areas and picnic tables under cover - useful, as this region gets more rain than the rest of Spain. The toilet block is large and modern, though the ladies section is down a flight of stairs. However, there are disabled facilities at ground level. Oddly, there are more sinks for laundry than for washing-up, and only the laundry sinks have hot water! There is a washing machine and a drier, a small shop in reception, but no bar or cafe, just a coffee machine. The small swimming pool is lovely, with beautiful sea views. My only grouch is that you are allocated a particular pitch, and ours was rather cramped and right by the washing-up sinks, so it was noisy. Some people were still washing up at midnight! On reflection we should have turned it down and chosen a better one. We had a wonderful day in Bilbao visiting the Guggenheim, and we also explored the coast both east and west of the site. There are some lovely resorts to visit, including San Sebastian, 32 km away, though our favourite was Zarautz with its huge surfing beach.
