 Small campsite right next to Peñarronda beach in the west of Asturias, near the border with Galicia, it has mobile homes to rent and there are pitches of various sizes (with electricity if needed) for caravans and tents. The pitches are slightly sloped due to use but they are, on the whole, well cared for with hedges affording some privacy from neighbours.

Very friendly and helpful staff and a relatively good shop in reception which stays open till about 11pm, and is next to the bar/ café. There's a play area/ small football pitch for kids at the entrance of the campsite too, a bbq area away from most of the pitches and a good, free wifi connection.

The toilet / shower / washbasins / etc block is more or less in the centre of the campsite and is cleaned twice a day though I did see staff replenishing the stocks of toilet paper at various other times throughout the day.

One good thing, in my opinion, is that there is a lot of emphasis on respecting other campers here. By means of signs and such posted on the walls of the service block, but they demand nothing out of the ordinary, only that you help to leave things as you find them for the benefit of other campers, and ultimately for your own benefit, and they ask that you refrain from using the showers / toilets inside the block whilst the cleaner is at work. There are various toilets / washbasins around the service block with access from outside only.

Every evening one of the staff gently reminds campers of the camp rules over the PA system (mainly stressing camp silence as of 12pm, and various other rules regarding silence / respect) amongst other bits of information and the announcement of the start of kiddies' games (with little prizes) by the reception. They also try to encourage campers to use the recycling bins just outside the campsite entrance.

The big attraction of this campsite, apart from it being right next to the beach, is the fact that they do -as best they can- enforce the camp rules and the silence rule is usually adhered to. Quite a rarity in most Spanish campsites. So it's a good place for those seeking peace and quiet as you don't get to hear everyone else's TV/radio etc.

Locally, you have several little villages to visit and the little town of Figueras close by and a few little routes to walk along through the western Asturian countryside/along the coast. Further afield, you have towns like Vegadeo, Castropol, Tapia de Casariego. Luarca.

And then across the border in Galicia, Ribadeo is worth a visit, or if you fancy a slightly longer trip, you could visit Mondoñedo (the Mediaeval market in the middle of August is highly recommended) or even the lovely walled city of Lugo.

Don't forget to try Asturian cider, which you can buy in the campsite shop or any supermarket, and the Galician speciality. Octopus. Mmmm, delicious.

Weather-wise. Prepare for everything. We've had rain, wind and hot, hot sunshine there. All in a weekend.
