Pool

General

  • In the historic city of Tarifa a short stroll from the beach
  • Pool, barbecue and play area
  • On-site snack bar and well-stocked mini market

What a splendid-looking beach… and all only a 400-metre stroll from splendid-looking Camping Paloma, a site set on the southernmost point of Cádiz's Costa de la Luz – and in one of the most southerly spots in Europe in Spain's deepest south.

Camping Paloma is based at the seaside town of Tarifa, known worldwide for its wind sports like windsurfing and kitesurfing, and for its buildings of European and Arabic style: its setting not far from Africa means it has the mountains of Morocco and the lights of Tangier visible across the Strait of Gibraltar.

Back at base, the site has a generously-sized pool to splash in, and a playground to keep the kids busy while the grownups prep dinner on the barbie. Maps of the area are in reception and the friendly team can give you all the info you need to arrange trips out into the surrounding countryside.

And if you're pondering losing a few pounds while on hol…? This is very much not the place to do so: Camping Paloma days can be started with breakfast at the bar's terrace along with a surf of the free wifi, then, perhaps, tapas and burgers for elevenses, lunch and dins… ? Or you could pick up piles of produce at the mini market, where the offerings include bread and pastries, fresh fruit and veg, and tasty ice cream.

Please note

Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 15/06 and 15/09 (subject to weather conditions).

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act.

From the manager...

Dear Patricia,

Thank you very much for your comment.
We are sorry to hear about the dirty washing up area, we clean it 2 times a day, and in high season more often. We have in our first public shower/bathroom building on the campside, a grey water dump and in 16 of our plots it´s also intergrated, we are sorry that you didn´t know about this. We don´t supply toilet paper and soap, these are one of the politics of the campsite.

Thank you for your visit and hopefully we can welcome you next time!

Kind regards,

Team Paloma

    Very clean, big campsite. Helpful reception staff. Bus arrives outside camp to take you into town. Great beach nearby.

    Disliked: 

    No toilet roll in facilities had to keep remembering to take your own. The pool wasn’t open until late morning so I couldn’t swim as had to time the bus into town for a day out. (The buses are not too frequent so got to time it right). WiFi didn’t work

From the manager...

Dear Laura,

Thank you for your comments.
In the past we supplied toiletpaper in the toilets, but unfortunately we have had bad experience, bad higiene and mis use of the paper rolls, so we prefer that guests bring their own.
We have specific opening hours for our pool, in order to have sufficient time for maintenance and for our swimming-pool guard to work during the most busy hours in high season.
We do have free wifi, but only in the common areas of the camping (recepcion, terace area).

Hope to welcome you again in the future!

Kind regards,

Team Paloma

Nice place to stay close to Tarifa with helpful staff and shady pitch11/09/2018

Reviewer's country: GibraltarAnonymousMobile phone iconConfirmed

  • Electric optional grass tent or trailer tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The campsite was large and very shaded, staff were friendly. Good restaurant and supermarket on site that were open all day. Location is brilliant as it is walking distance from the beach. It's just a 5 minute drive into Tarifa itself. Nice pool, if a little small, but in a sunny location.

    Disliked: 

    The toilets and showers were quite dated, and although clean they looked scruffy. There was no toilet paper or soap in any of the units.

From the manager...

Dear clients,

thanks for your opinion. We work on our services to get better every day.

Local attractions

Watersports, secluded beach basks, ancient sites and green gardens are all within easy reach of Camping Paloma, along with a vast range of activities: the reception staff can help you arrange climbing, mountain biking, quad tours, birdwatching tours and lessons in diving, surfing and windsurfing as well as day trips to Morocco.

The beach of Valdevaqueros, 400 metres away from the site, is a fave throughout Spain for its surf, and has a beachfront and surrounds crammed with restaurants and chiringuitos for tapas and cerveza after an afternoon among the waves. Other popular sandy stretches like Playa de los Lances and Playa de Bolonia are within a short drive, and the secluded Playa de los Alemanes is next to Zahara de los Atunes, the fishing village famed for its tasty tuna: try it out in one of the many restaurants and bars.

Local town Tarifa dates back to the eighth century and has many a sight to see, like tenth-century Guzman castle near the port (most recommended), the sixteenth-century Church of St Matthew built over a former mosque, and the Roman ruins of Baelo Claudia and the Necrópolis de los Algarbes.

Tarifa is in the migrating bird haven of the Intercontinental Mediterranean Biosphere Reserve: look out for storks flapping ahead over the Straits of Gibraltar in spring and autumn.
