General

  • Close to the beaches of Antuerta and Cuberris: shuttle available
  • On-site snack bar specialising in seafood paella
  • Seasonal pool, play area and market selling fresh bread and pastries

A seafood paella speciality – in Spain – by the coast in Cantabria – how splendid.

Aim to spend mucho time in the snack bar of Camping Cabo De Ajo on your Spanish seaside holiday, for this is where cuisine-curious guests can sample said seafood paella as well as other treats like fried calamari and homemade pizza to have on the spacious terrace or indoors.

Off site, it's about a kilometre and a half from Camping Cabo De Ajo to the spectacular beaches of Antuerta and Cuberris – and a free shuttle service runs from site to sands every day in July and August if you a) can't be faffed stirring that far on foot, or b) are laden with bucket and spade, games, towel, picnic basket and other beach-based paraphernalia. For day trips and city sightseeing, local town Ajo is 40 minutes' drive from Cantabrian capital Santander, and around an hour and 20 minutes in the other direction to Bilbao.

Leisure facilities on site include an outdoor pool and a paddling pool, a playground and a games room. For the essentials, there are toilet blocks with free hot showers, a launderette and chemical disposal.

The supermarket sells fresh bread and pastries, groceries, fruit and veg, and newspapers.

Please note

Basic grass field with nice clean toilet block 23/08/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Simon S. Confirmed

  • Electric optional grass motorhome pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Plenty of space on camping field, choose your own spot on a flat bit. Clean modern toilet block.

    Disliked: 

    Most of the field slopes, but is was quite empty so could find a flat part. Toilet block is the opposite end of the (smallish) site to the field.

Avoid 20/05/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Neil A. Mobile phone icon Confirmed

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

    Showers were clean

    Disliked: 

    Nothing like the photos online. The chalets look like they have permenant residents in and very close together, camping is an overgrown field at the bottom off the site.
    Avoid if possible. I've had better sites for a fiver, I feel as though I've been mugged for 20 quid.

    Disliked: 

    Desolation. Miles from the beach, the supermarket is a couple of products in a corner of the bar, the swimming pool is tiny and caged in like a prison and is also next to the main road, the motorhome pitches are basically sited in an agricultural desolate field, would absolutely not recommend.

Good site, clean facilities, great staff, and nice location 03/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Michael C. Confirmed

  • Electric optional grass motorhome pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Quiet location, staff spoke English and good facilities.
    Some nice walks, approx. 45 mins either way to the local town and great beaches reasonably close.
    The actual campsite is reasonable for the money paid and the quietness and views make up for any concerns we may have had about the lack of distributed electric hookups.
    If you do not mind a couple of nights without hookup its ideal.

    Disliked: 

    The campsite itself is basic, however there are electric hookups and it can be very busy at weekends end July/August.
    Only 1 electric hookup facility (6 x sockets), and you are restricted by the length of your cable in terms of were you want to park of you need hookup.

    An additional hookup location in the middle of the campsite would make it easier to distribute caravans/motorhomes.

Local attractions

Surfing, windsurfing, and fishing are among the watery activities available at the beaches of Antuerta and Cuberris, a short stroll or quick shuttle bus ride from the park. Snorkelling, canoeing and more surfing can all be arranged along the coast at Noja, about 15 kilometres to the east.

The site team reckons guests in this part of Cantrabria should have a day or several in Cabárceno Nature Park, 30 kilometres from Ajo, to sightsee around its safari park setting for critters including ostriches, elephants, bears and rattlesnakes. Closer to home, the Santoña, Victoria and Joyel Marshes Nature Park is a popular spot for birdwatching and more nature spotting, among its migrating birds and marine animals.

Within an hour's drive are the world-famed Altamira Caves in Santillana del Mar, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Subterranean sorts can also mosey along to El Soplao, to see its stalactites, stalagmites, minerals and fossils, or to take the mining train for a complete tour. And yet another must-see in the region are the rock formations of the Ojerada, near the lighthouse of Cabo de Ajo: follow the signs to the lighthouse then turn right.

The Magdalena Palace and beaches of Santander are within 40 kilometres of the site.
