March 2019.

Early season 4 night visit whilst drifting north following improving weather.

Do plan your access route to site from the Motorway carefully as some fairly tight narrow but busy roads we found. Left site to north and much better.

A very smart site with lots of facilities - no issues for us.

ACSI price was much cheaper. Site fairly active and clearly popular. Very good beach adjoins with lovely outlook over Roses bay.

We enjoyed some lovely drive out trips in our car to visit various places in the bay and further.

We used the Vet in San Pere for the vet check - do phone first !.

Will be a very different site in the height of the summer season and when it's busy.

Would return early or late season.

This campsite is full of very friendly Germans who make you welcome even though you are the minority. The staff are very friendly as well and there is a great place to wash off your vehicle after the long drive down. The local village is within walking distance but a bicycle or other transport is recommended.

The beach is right there on your door stop and although it is always windy (hence the wind/kite surfing every where) it's clean, natural and vast!

The showers/toilets are spotless and seemed to be cleaned all day long which can be quite disturbing when you have a young spanish lady is there when your having a tinkle!

I haven't been roaming for long and I don't have many other campsites to make comparisons with (unless you count we willy's campsite in north Argyll which was blown away in the scottish storm of 79!), however this is a great place with great amenities, great staff. The only downside if any, was the two guys juggling on stilts to really bad house music until 11o'clock 3 nights a week!

But space wise people wise this ones a winner and thankyou Germany for making me welcome.

I felt I must add to the previous review of Camping Aquarius and echo what he has said. The campsite is a real treasure on the bay of Roses and each year we return to find that the Rupp family have invested in the campsite, improving it and making it more comfortable for campers.

You don't come back to the same site for 24 years unless there is something which draws you back. At Aquarius its the fact that the staff rarely change, the welcome is friendly, the beach is sandy and the sea is warm and safe. The sanitary block is cleaned from 7 in the morning until 10 at night, the supermarket is well stocked and does not run down towards the end of the season (unlike campsites in France) and the site is well drained to cope with the occasional storm.

What more can I say - we used to come in August but now that we have retired come in September when its half the price and the weather is just as good (just not quite as hot). Each year we recognise other campers and you soon find that most are returnees - so that speaks for itself

The one drawback if you come in September is that the roudy Camping and Caravanning Club rally is in - so if you don't want to be serenaded with 'show me the way to go home' at 11PM choose a pitch well away (we sometimes sneak past) as it can be rather embarrassing to own up to being British - their behaviour is not what would be tolerated on a Camping and Caravanning site.

This is probably my favourite campsite anywhere. I first visited camping Aquarius as a 6 year old in 1978, we returned 12 times, every year until 1989.
Now I have my own family with 3 children (6, 8 and 11 at the last visit). Over the past 10 years, as well as 3 trips to Aquarius, we have stayed at Las Dunas, 1 mile down the coast and Nautic Almata, 2 miles up the coast as well as a couple of sites in the south of France and 2 trips to Camping Maroadi on Lake Garda and many weekend trips to UK sites - overall we consider ourselves to pretty seasoned campers

Aquarius is situated in the middle of the bay of Rosas, on a 10 mile stretch of uncrowded, unspoiled golden sandy beach - how can this be possible on the Med? the answer is that this is a national park, no hotels anywhere near the beach, no developments, in fact the only users of the beach are campers and spanish day trippers.
Needless to say, this is a beach where the kids can have a degree of freedom in relative safety. To make matters even better, the sea just outside Aquarius is very shallow for at least 50m so younger kids can enjoy the surf even if they are not confident swimmers.

If you want to visit some of the other campsites further down the Bay of Rosas, the sea is not so attractive - the beach opposite La Giavota is an internationally renown kite surfing spot, whilst Balena Alegre 2 is a mecca for windsurfers around the world (it even hosts a world cup windsurfing event every June). This is not to say that Aquarius is not suitable for watersports - there is a windsurfing / kitesurfing and sailing launch area between Aquarius and L'amfora, however, swimmers and sailers are well segregated. Aquarius has an excellent windsurfing and sailing school and shop on site.

So more about the site itself - in terms of size and layout, not too much has changed since 1979, it is even run by the same German Family - It is not a big campsite, probably 300 pitches or so; there is a good assortment of different pitch sizes, some A pitches more than 100m sq whilst some C pitches are as small as 60m sq. Pitches have electricity and some have running water an drainage - though these tend to be booked up 18 months in advance. Most pitches have a good degree of shade from mature trees. There is easy access to the beach, with a number of beach side pitches - but really the site is so small that nowhere is too far from the beach.

The site prides itself on being family friendly - especially for families with young children. There are no loud discos and the evening entertainment, which is only 3 days a week is family focused. The older kids do tend to go next door to L'amfora for the nightly disco.

The site is really well organised, the toilets are always spotless. Bins are emptied more than once per day and the whole site has feeling of being well looked after. There is a shop, which is adequate - we tend to go to the local town (St Pere Pescadore) to by fruit and veg - this is the main economy of the region - and you will never find better Fruit and veg anywhere. In St Pere, there is a supermarket, butcher, fish monger and good range of local shops. St Pere is a 2 mile cycle ride from the campsite, along a cycle track which runs next to the road.

Most of the campers come back year after year - in fact when I returned after a 17 year absence, 4 of my childhood friends were also on the site with their families. The majority of the campers are German, however, there are lots of Dutch, Brits, French and Spanish - so it has a real international feeling - we have made plenty of German and Dutch friends, despite not speaking their language.

The only downside, depending on your point of view, is the lack of swimming pool. To be honest you won't miss it - spend the time on the beach. I cannot imagine that any of the kids at Aquarius are bored because they don't have a pool!

Aquarius is a great site - very popular and not cheap, but well worth it.

Excellent campsite. Best showers ever! Pitches tend to be very small but that said, all are adequate. Spotlessly clean facilities. Restaurant very good and reasonable. Shop the same.
I would imagine that this is a very good site for long summer stays as well as short stops for those going further afield. I would definitely stay here again!

Never been on a campsite with so many bells and whistles, apart from a pool it had everything, from archery, to sculpture lessons. Large kids play area along with smaller play areas around the site, the beach is accessed directly off the site (no road) and is very popular with kite surfers. (Kite surfing school on site) Staff were very friendly and helpful, all spoke excellent English.

Spotless facilities, with a small army of workers cleaning up. Small supermarket on site, reasonable prices, products tend to be German dominated, there is an excellent bodega nearby for a larger and much cheaper selection of alcohol.

We made 2 mistakes on this site, getting a pitch at the front nearest the sea and getting a pitch with a flag in the corner, if it is sunny in the morning you are almost guaranteed the wind will pick up and rattle your awning the rest of the day, plus the flag cracks away merrily! Would go again but would get a pitch at the rear of the site as they tend to be the quietest.
