General

  • Beachfront site in Laredo, less than an hour from Bilbao and Santander
  • 15 minutes' walk from resort centre for horse riding and watersports
  • Facilities for cyclists and easy access to bike routes

Folks seeking a Spanish seaside sojourn or a stopover while meandering along the coast between Bilbao and Santander, take a peek at this place. Camping Playa El Regatón is a super spot in lovely Laredo, slap bang between the two cities and less than an hour’s drive from each.

It’s not just about the proximity to urban wanderings here though – you’re also right on the very beachfront, giving you excellently easy access to a stretch of sand and the calm waters of the Treto river. 15 minutes’ walk away is the centre of the resort, with another gorgeous golden beach, watersports and riding centres and heaps of restaurants and shops.

Life on site is pretty chilled, too. Mature trees all around provide pitches with a bit of shade and privacy, and there are plenty of useful facilities – a playground, table tennis and kids’ club should keep the tiddlers happy, while gadget addicts will be chuffed to hear that the free wifi stretches across much of the site. Eats are easily sorted too at the on-site café, or by heading to the barbecue area with bits from the mini market.

This is a particularly fab choice for those of you travelling on two wheels – stop off here and you’ll be close to lots of cycle routes as well as being able to use the site’s handy bike-friendly facilities, including a safe storage area, a workshop for running repairs and a launderette to freshen your pedalling togs.

Please note

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

    Lucky enough to get a pitch with a view over the estuary. Good size pitches and we arrived over the weekend when there was a festival happening in Laredo so it was very busy but never felt over crowded and other campers were friendly. Very close to the estuary which was absolutely beautiful and mostly empty with some good walks. Quick cycle ride into Laredo and the beautiful beach there. Laredo had some good restaurants in and around the old town. We found it a great campsite a short journey from the ferry at Santander to get acclimatised and settled into the holiday and ended up staying an extra day

    Very picturesque site directly on the estuary, lots of trees and shade. Flat, grassy pitches. Shower/toilet block very good and nice cafe/bar. Bus stop to Laredo about 15 minute walk away but plenty of parking near the bus stop, do not bother driving into Laredo as very busy and very hard to park.

Very clean and tidy facilities. 10/08/2018

    Immaculate site. Good plots, with excellent access to the sea, beach and the beautiful area around. Easy access to the mountains and hills. Supermarket very near for provisions. Very few English speakers here, and very few British people in the area. We were the only British people on the site for most of the time. Staff worked incredibly hard to help us with any questions that we had. It is worth noting that there is a security barrier which closes at night and also a night watchman who patrols the whole site from time to time, which makes it very safe in what is quite an isolated area.

I asked at the bar for a bottle of wine as supermarket shut the very help full young girl opens the supermarket and charges me 2.5 euros. This site is worth staying in town is a nice stroll away and full of restaurants and bars . Must be one of the cleanest sites I have ever stayed in in 40 years of caravaning would come back again.

Local attractions

Laredo’s well known in Spain for its gorgeous beach, a five-kilometre sheltered sandy swath with a backdrop of wooded hills. Take your pick from relaxing times sunbathing and swimming or getting active by galloping along the beach on horseback, taking surfing or paddleboarding lessons or suiting up for a scuba dive.

Away from the main beach, it’ll take you 20 minutes or so to drive over to the Santoña, Victoria and Joyel Marshes Natural Park to go in search of migrating birds. Or you could potter in the Pueblo Vieja, Laredo’s medieval quarter, to see houses dating back to the 16th century.

Day trips to Bilbao and Santander are highly recommended from here, too – don’t miss the Palacio de La Magdalena in Santander, or the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao.
