Camping Cheque and ACSI Site

Location: Site well signposted off the D8 close to the edge of Ormis. Medium sized site with 350 pitches of varying sizes from 70 m sq to 120 m sq.

We used this as an overnight halt but didnít want to stay for any longer.

Sanitary facilities are reasonably well fitted out but didnít seem to be cleaned very often. There is a bar and restaurant on site.

We stayed here for 2 of our 8 weeks in Croatia - I loved this very friendly well run very very clean site. The facilities are excellent good showers plenty of loos good laundry room and hand washing, ironing, dish washing. We did have an excellent pitch which was literally on the beach for an additional cost but by the end of June this was 33 Euros per night so we moved on as this is expensive as we normally use ACSI but coming to the end of June the sites push their prices up - there are other sections available further back away from the beach which are cheaper and are really nice - it has a great restaurant which is so reasonable to eat in, a lovely beach, good supermarket just off the site and walking distance into Omis with its fish restaurants and amazing Gorge which we cycled along for a good few miles - Omis is a lovely town within walking distance of Galeb, the reception staff are so helpful and speak fluent English - would go back anytime

We stayed at Camp Galeb for a total of 16 nights. Camp Galeb is on the outskirts of the coastal town of Omis which is about 15 miles south of Split. We reached the site by taking Croatia's only motorway from the border with Slovenia.

This is quite a new road and is of good quality with relatively little traffic. The last few miles were along the single-carriageway main coast road which tends to get rather congested as it passes through a succession of coastal towns.

Camp Galeb is very pleasant as it is right on the 'beach'. The site is split up into 3 main areas. There is an unmarked area for free camping which is the cheapest. There are 2 other areas with different price bands depending on their nearness to the beach.

There is, also, a large area of static 'vans. Most of the pitches have water and electricity and the most expensive ones drainage, too. The pitches vary in size but a number of them are large. Many are shaded by mature trees. Access to some of the pitches is made a little difficult by trees and oddly placed lamp standards! The pitches are accessed by a network of surfaced roads.

We had not pre-booked and just phoned ahead on the evening of our arrival having rejected our original campsite destination. We arrived after dark the first night and ended up, still hitched, in the unmarked area. We then secured a pitch 2 rows back from the beach and after a few days moved again to a pitch one row back from the beach which had sea views to the island opposite, across a sea channel.

Our stay at Camp Galeb cost roughly 300 Kuna per night which is approximately £34 at current exchange rates. That was for the best pitch category. Wi-fi internet coverage was available but pricey at 250 Kuna (£28.26) for a week. Shorter periods were available but cost even more. The coverage was very good and reached our caravan which was about as far from the reception building as one could get.

The large, modern, reception area is very pleasantly air-conditioned and most of the staff there spoke fluent English. Reception offers a number of coach and boat day trips. There is, also, a computer area with internet access but prices were high, especially for short periods.

There are several toilet blocks but we cannot comment on these as we used our own facilities. There is a coin-operated laundry with washing machines and tumble driers although, rather unusually, one had to be admitted by a member of the reception staff.

Camp Galeb has a number of small shops near to reception selling bread, fruit and beach goods. There is a block of locker-type fridges which can be hired. Near the beach there is an area of trampolines for children for an additional cost. A surfing 'centre' offering surfboards, windsurfers, etc for hire and, also, lessons, is situated next to the beach.

Close to the beach there is a good on site restaurant with both indoor and outdoor dining areas. The restaurant was very reasonably priced - a 2 course steak 'birthday' evening meal, with drinks, cost less than £50 for 4 of us.

It was very hot during our stay, 32+C, and we spent our time swimming and lazing about reading. The campsite had an unusually large beach, quite a rarity in Croatia, of coarse sand which I think was probably, at least in part, man-made - we wore nylon beach shoes when swimming.

The beach has a very gradual slope into the sea and so was very safe for children. In addition the sea off the main beach was delineated by a rope with floats. We, also, used our Zodiac inflatable boat on the sea adjacent to the campsite although there are quite strong currents further out. There is an area of sea adjacent to the campsite where boats can be anchored free of charge.

Omis is a picturesque town at the mouth a river which emerges through a dramatic limestone canyon. It has a range of touristy shops, restaurants and ice cream parlours along the main coast road, which runs through the centre of the town, and in the warren of adjacent traffic-free streets.

There are 2 ruined castles on the cliffs above the town but we found it too hot to bother climbing to them?! The main coast road is frequently very congested in both directions as it passes through the town and this meant that we did not use our car a great deal.

Just outside the campsite gates and on the minor road leading to the campsite there is a small modern shopping centre which includes a largish supermarket. Its position and large car park meant that we could go food shopping by car without having to go onto the congested coast road. The range of food was rather more limited than would be found in France and other Continental countries but was adequate.

Fruit and vegetables in particular were limited to home-grown produce with very little variety. The supermarket had an in-store bakery, butchery and fish departments. There was a wide range of beers and other alcoholic drinks but interestingly no cider - my favourite tipple.

Although many of the supermarket staff spoke fluent English the Croatian language food labelling was not always easy to understand. Food prices were the cheapest we found on the Continent. On a trip out we did find a Lidl supermarket and, although not labelled in English, we were able to identify a number of goods because the product packaging was similar to that found in English Lidls!

At the end of the town furthest from the campsite there is a pleasant quayside and small harbour. There are numerous large tour boats offering day trips to the adjacent islands with various packages, some including free food and drinks.

When walking on the quayside we were frequently stopped by boat reps pushingly selling trip tickets - they speak several European languages including English, fluently.

We enjoyed our stay in Croatia but found it a bit hot for us. In addition we found it, a VERY LONG drive. We aimed at 350 miles a day driving in 100 mile 'shifts' in turns and with a picnic lunch en route. We had night halts at 2 German and Austrian campsites when travelling each way.
