General

  • In a nature reserve with direct access to a sandy beach
  • Pools, sports fields, animal park and outside exercise course
  • Natural setting but with modern facilities

There is – such – a lot one could wax lyrical about this Cantabrian site. Camping Playa Joyel is in splendid location, on the edge of a spectacular beach with direct access to it. And that's just to start you off: there's also a blue pool and other facilities to keep you leisurely, all in the wildlife haven of the Trasmiera Ecopark nature reserve.

On top of that, the site is right by the sea, with direct access to the wide sandy stretch of those very pics. Other very fab facilities on site are the swimming pools, padel and tennis courts, sports fields, an outdoor exercise course, play areas and open-air barbecues.

There's also a kids' club and – you don't get many of these to the euro – an on-site mini zoo where guests can meet cows, bulls, ducks, pygmy goats, deer, pigs, peacocks, ostriches and chickens among many other species. The animal park is open for visits a couple of times a week, but eager beavers will still be able to see the animals through the fence during the rest of the year.

Really good site, very lively and great location to the beach. 18/08/2018

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

    The pitches were plenty big enough for a 7.02m caravan, an awning and a Ranger, felt quite private with the hedges surrounding each pitch.

    Disliked: 

    Getting the caravan onto the pitch, did take six men but all willing to help, quite big curbs to get over.

  • Liked: 

    Meet and greet outside camp. Reception, opportunity to choose own pitch. Location near to the beach, cleanliness and high maintenance of the site and facilities.

    Disliked: 

    Bar/cafe limited choice and a lot of very greasy food.
    Wifi 5 euros for 24 hours and it didn't work at the pitch in the motor home. It's the 21st century. Most accommodation sites now offer free wifi or free in public areas but when they do charge, it's superfast and reliable where ever you use it on site.

  • Playa de Ris, Noja, Cantabria, Spain, 39180
  • Timezone Europe/Madrid CET (GMT+01:00)   GPS 43.4899°N 3.5375°W

Directions


From the A8 towards Santander, take the exit signposted Beranga and follow the directions to Noja. Once in Noja, follow Avenida de Ris to Playa de Ris until you reach the beach. Turn left leaving the sand dunes to your right and you will find the site on your left.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

That beach in the pics directly accessible to Camping Playa Joyel is Playa Del Ris, a place of several surf schools with surf lessons and surf kit hire as well as blue sea and wide golden sands.

Once/if unpeeled from the sands, the island of San Pedruco and its small medieval chapel are within easy walking distance. Foam fans will find good surf from its beaches and fisherfolk also like to cast off here: ask the Playa Joyel team for tips if you fancy doing either.

Townwise in the region, try days out at the small but famed municipality of Comillas and its baroque and medieval buildings, and Potes, the capital of the Comarca of Liébana (do also try the grape brandy...). The city, beaches, harbour and Magdalena Palace of Santander are all within driving distance.

If you'd rather stalk some of the locally found species instead, the site is in the Santoña, Victoria and Joyel Marshes Nature Park, a marshy place along the Cantabrian coast known for its marine wildlife and migrating birds.
