General

  • Beachside site surrounded by a centenarian eucalyptus grove
  • A five-minute drive from Almeria
  • Bar-restaurant with spacious terrace

A five-minute drive from Almeria? That sounds just splendid in itself, but add in that Camping La Garrofa is right on the beach and there are strong possibilities that one might want to hide away here for weeks.

The ancient city of Almeria is known as Spain’s sunniest, and the province of Almeria in the most arid area of all of Europe – it's such a dry area that many a spaghetti Western has been shot in these here parts. (The temp is about 25 to 35 degrees Celsius in summer and doesn't usually drop below 15 in winter.) And this is the region of Andalucian coast, the Cabo de Gata-Níjar Natural Park, the Calar Alto Observatory and the Sierra Nevada… yep, one could hide away here for weeks.

And yep, this site is right on the beach... It's also surrounded by a centenarian eucalyptus grove, on a sheltered corner of Almerian coastline and in a (highly) scenic setting with fishing right on site and heaps of hiking in its nearby hills. Pitches are spacious and many have sea views.

Spanish cuisine at decent prices can be sampled from the daily menus and tapas at the cosy bar-restaurant, where you can eat indoors or outside on the big terrace. La Garrofa also has three modern toilet and shower blocks.

Excellent Campsite. 01/08/2017

    We have been living in our Motor-home now for the past 5 years, travelling all around Europe and staying at many different camp sites. Our first year we stopped off at Camping la Garrofa (on the South coast of Spain) for one night on our way to Portugal and instantly fell in love with this wonderful place, each time staying longer and longer. Camping la Garrofa is situated right next to the beach between Almeria and Aguadulce on the coast road (around 10mins bus ride to each place). The staff are very helpful and friendly and the bar/restaurant serves you food and drink while overlooking the clear, warm blue waters of the Mediterranean, Shower and toilet facilities very clean with plenty hot and cold water . A real gem of a camp site with many of its customers returning year after year.

    The location was fantastic! Drove onto the beach to get to our pitch which was roomy. The facilities were basic but functional and clean. We were only there one night but would definitely return to explore more! One of the most lovely spots to wake up in with the sound of the waves on the shore.

    Disliked: 

    WiFi not great but considering the location not a problem

Local attractions

Camping La Garrofa's setting has it well placed for easy access to the excellent city of Almeria as well as the natural areas of this arid province, from deserts to coastline to the mountains of the Sierra Nevada and the Sierra de Los Filabres.

Almeria's only natural park is Cabo de Gata-Nijar, the biggest protected coastal area in the province. It has a desert climate (yet tis at the sea too), Spain's biggest volcanic rock formation, craggy cliffs and tiny islands brimming with marine life: the park has been a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve since 1997.

Birdwatching, diving, boating and geology field trips can all be arranged at the natural park; if you're hiking, try the Caldera de Majada Redonda trail, leading to the centre of an ancient volcano caldera.

The Tabernas desert is where the Almeria spaghetti Westerns were filmed, including the Dollars trilogy (that's A Fistful of Dollars, A Few Dollars More and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly for the uninitiated). It's still used these days for film shooting, but quite a few critters are around too if you'd rather spot native species than cowboys: look out for Bonelli eagles, peregrine falcons, ladder snakes and natterjack toads.

Several traditional Almerian villages are a few miles from the campsite, and do have a few days in Almeria too, to see famed sights like its Alcazaba, the air raid shelters used in the Spanish Civil War, its cathedral and its Chanca, the group of houses carved into rocks.
