Campsites in Spain: cool spots in a sunshine-soaked nation
Whether your preferred holiday mode is more on the fiesta or siesta side of the travelling spectrum, our holiday parks and campsites in Spain on Pitchup have exploring España sorted. This nation’s ace for an alfresco break as it has one of Europe’s warmest climates and a range of varied landscapes – expect buff beaches by the bucketload, mighty mountains to meander across and some seriously swish cities to boot while on a break here…
Why not join the other 35 million (extremely wise) holidaymakers who mosey around this country on an annual basis for the excellent wine, culture and architecture, all the while making one of these campsites in Spain your muybien base?
What can you get at a campsite in Spain?
At Pitchup, we have a selection of Spanish sites within easy reach of fantastic festivals – youthful folk will want to check out the world-renowned Benicàssim Festival, while those after adrenaline-fuelled activities can run with the bulls in Pamplona.
For folk seeking more sedate times, pick a pitch or other accommodation near golf courses, UNESCO World Heritage Sites and national parks in this nation, or peruse pitches and parks on fincas (farms) in the calm countryside.
Swerve over to sites skirting sandy beaches – whether secluded coves or long seaside stretches lined in buzzing bars, restaurants and watersports schools – and settle on a lounger with your sunglasses perched on your nose in front of the sea. Some parks have direct access to multiple beaches, so you can choose to have the sand to yourself or share it with the crowds.
Touring with the tiddlers? Select sites in Spain near amusement parks and zoos – there are plenty on the Costa del Sol, with masses of beaches, estuaries and sand dunes to amble among as well, if you’re after a family-friendly time. Hoping to organise a hol with friends? Get a group together for a grownup-themed trip wandering the wine routes in La Rioja.
Our campsites in Spain can be browsed by region, theme or type of accommodation, or you can check individual listings to see what’s on offer in the grounds and the surrounding area.
Facilities to pick from at our campsites in Spain
Taken by tapas? Look out for Spanish campsites with restaurants on base to help you get your mitts on moreish meals aplenty. Coastal camps tend to have a selection of seafood to salivate over – much of which will have been plucked out of the ocean and delivered fresh to your plate that same day.
If you’re on a budget during a break, check out cheap Spanish holiday parks with a private or shared kitchen and spend your spare euros on ingredients like jamon (ham) and sangria in the supermarkets; some parks also offer discounts in local restaurants and shops to help you keep costs low.
Coastal explores are a fab way to while away the days, but having aquatic amenities to drench yourself in on site is a treat too. If this sounds dreamy, browse campsites in Spain with swimming pools (as well as hot tubs for decadent dips).
Pointing your compass towards campsites in Spain with waterparks, whether big or small, is also a grand plan: southern destinations like the Costa del Sol get a whopping 320 days of sunshine per year, so it’s likely you’ll want somewhere to cool off while on a break here.
Some of the more unusual Spanish holiday parks to bed down in include those amid marshes with bird-viewing platforms (top for twitching types) and hideouts inside horse-riding centre (excellent for equestrian sorts) if you’re craving an alternative to your usual type of trip…
Campsites in Spain cover all sorts of destinations – here’s where to go
Urban explorers usually flock to the outskirts of famed cities like Madrid and Barcelona while camping in Spain– and for good reason. Madrid, as the capital, has a wealth of world-class museums and tip-top cuisine to select from, while Barcelona is sought after for its beach vibes and the modernist architecture of Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia basilica.
Other must-visit metropolises include the southern cities of Seville and Granada in Andalucia – don’t miss the multicoloured mosaic-covered Plaza de España in the former or the jaw-droppingly-ornate Alhambra palace in the latter.
The Costa Brava is littered with Blue Flag beaches that are prime for camping next to and, being in Catalonia, has a distinct cultural flavour compared with the rest of Spain. It’s also fab for foodies – there are more Michelin-starred restaurants to rove between in this region than in other parts of the country.
Ultra-modern Marbella is for monied movers and shakers – this swanky seaside resort draws in the yacht-owning jet-set sorts – while Benidorm and its beaches lined in multiple bars and restaurants catering to the mostly British crowds have a lively atmosphere.
The under-the-radar areas
Out in the north west, Galicia is a gorgeously green region with white-sand beaches that almost look like they’ve been imported from the Caribbean. Stay near Vigo for access to the clear turquoise waters of the Cíes isles – the only tell-tale sign that you’re not in the tropics will be from the chill of the Atlantic Ocean as you dive into the water.
Go north east next to another underrated area, Cantabria, to bound around the Bay of Biscay, criss-cross the hiking trails in the Picos de Europa National Park and seek out scenic caves like El Soplao with its strangely shaped stalactites.
