Camping Playa Arenillas: Pitches field

General

  • A minute's walk from a sandy surfing beach
  • Immaculate facilities; next to a surf school with kit hire
  • Playground, shop and bar-restaurant with roomy terrace

Right by the sea near Islares in Cantabria lies Camping Playa Arenillas, an easy 100 metres from a sandy beach with waves that are a foolproof spot for surfing: if you've never plunged into the foam before, a surf school (with kit hire) is right next to the site to show you which way up to clutch your board.

The site has a playground, football pitch, ping pong tables and a snack bar-restaurant with a large terrace and extensive menu of Spanish and international options. There's also a small shop selling essentials including fresh bread and newspapers, and fruit and veg stalls every day.

Amenities include two blocks of toilets (one renovated in 2019), showers with free hot water, and a launderette with washing machines and dryers and ironing area. The closest spot for wifi and tourist info is in the Termibus bus reception in Bilbao, half an hour's drive away.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

The site accepts twin axles caravans and motorhomes. Access to the site is downhill and it has a little slope (30 metres). During the weekends of July and August there may be some inconvenience, due to the amount of people arriving at the beach.

Local attractions

The beach in front of Camping Playa Arenillas is popular with families because of its clean and shallow waters, and with surfers for its waves and its surf school with equipment hire. Check on tide times with the site team when planning your beach time, as the sands are covered with water for a few hours each day.

Hiking and cycling trails, boat trips and 4x4 tours are all available nearby for outdoorsy days, or you could amble around Cabarceno Natural Park, set in an old tin mine in the Pisueña valley. The Bizkaia or El Karpin Ecological Park, a wild animal shelter with added dinosaurs, is within driving distance.

If you're a subterranean sort, you're in luck, as Cantabria has over 9,000 caves dotted under its surface. A few close to the site are the Cave of El Castillo at nearby Puente Viesgo; the cave paintings of the Cueva de las Monedas, and the caves – and caving expeditions – of the mountainous Alto Asón.
