- On a clifftop with spectacular sea views, 500 metres from the beach
- Within 30 minutes' drive of Trieste
- Pools, adventure playground, bazaar and scenic terrace
The clifftop views from this smashing site… well, they're just spectacular. High up near Trieste and the Italian-Slovenian border, this jaw-dropping locale has views across to Slovenia, Croatia on a clear day, and the clear blue waters of the Adriatic Sea edged by beach below.
Reach the beach 500 metres under your smashing clifftop setting via the tourist train which runs every hour from the site, or by taking the path down if you're feeling (it's a bit steep so not recommended for the less mobile or for the very young). The train runs all day so no need to fret about having to hike back.
The beach is public and pebbly but safe for all ages, for paddling, swimming or knocking a ball about in a game of beach volleyball and beach football. If you'd rather sink into these sublime sunny surroundings on site instead, take your sun gear and shades to the sand and sunbeds on the terrace, to work on your tan while gazing dreamily (again) on the sea views. (A small charge is made to access the terrace to avoid overcrowding.)
The site also has a modern pool complex, with a pool for adults and one for kids, connected by a waterfall, and open from mid-May to September dependent on the weather. A whirlpool is here too, and more sunbathing spots at the pool sides.
Also around for leisure are a new adventure playground, to keep little sorts amused for hours, and a full schedule of daily entertainment and activities for all ages, including beach football, beach volleyball, aerobics, aqua gym, dancing, tennis and forays out into the local area. Or go to get rid of some money at the on-site shopping area, with a supermarket and bazaar selling food, drinks, magazines, newspapers, camping items and souvenirs.
A site restaurant overlooks the pools for tasty bites and more scenic views. You should also have a bite or a drink at Café Rilke, just along the coast path overlooking the sea; for a lively vibe, Bay of Sistiana pubs and clubs are within a 10-minute stroll.
Open from 29/03/2018 to 05/11/2018

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

The bay here is acclaimed as one of the most beaut spots on the Adriatic Sea, so wherever you potter to, bring a camera, possibly a picnic and definitely significant time to stop and stare.
Stroll the Rilke Promenade near the site, named after the poet Rainer Maria Rilke, who stayed at nearby Duino Castle and found writerly inspiration in the region to begin his influential Duino Elegies (a notebook for your arty thoughts might be a useful addition to your day pack too). The castle itself, also a famed and scenic destination on the Adriatic, dates back to the 14th century and these days is open to the public as a museum and park.
About 20 kilometres south along the coast is the department capital of glitzy Trieste, one of the richest cities in all of Italy. Its seafront and Piazza Unità d'Italia are pretty places to wander; make for the synagogue, the second biggest in Europe; the Temple of Monte Grisa, and the empire remains of the city including the theatre and the Roman walls for other famed sites.
