  • A few minutes' walk from the beach
  • Half a kilometre from Calella town centre
  • Pool, snack bar and restaurant

Till ringers and sand fans unite. The handsome big park of El Far is a few minutes’ walk from a golden sandy beach and an easy half kilometre from Calella, a town so dedicated to shopping that it has over 500 stores and a two-kilometre long shopping road. (And Barcelona is under an hour away for more shopping – and museums – there too.)

El Far is a hillside site on the Catalonian coast (countryside and sea settings = huzzah), and has a pool, snack bar, mini market and a restaurant. Kayaking excursions, diving, zumba, bingo and many more activities are organised for guests by the site team.

Amenities are well looked after and include two toilet and shower blocks, a washing-up area and a launderette.

And if you’re sick of shopping? (Pffft.) A watersports centre is just outside the site and a wellness centre is 50 metres away, with discounts available for site guests.

Depart: (2 nights)

Ce n'est pas un camping familial ! 13/08/2018

  • Electric optional earth tent or trailer tent pitch

    Le camping est bien situé près de la mer, du centre ville et à 20 minutes de la gare. Le terrain forme des escaliers sur la colline, sportif mais sympa. La vue est très agréable.


    La présence de trop nombreux jeunes (colonies) qui laissent traîner leurs affaires dans les douches (tampons hygiéniques, rasoirs, vêtements, maillots de bains,...). Ils accaparent tous les blocs sanitaires et la piscine qui est par ailleurs bien trop petite pour le nombre de personnes. Les surveillants de baignades les autorisent à jouer au ballon (certains jouent d'ailleurs avec eux !!! ) et à plonger même lorsqu'il y a beaucoup de monde et de jeunes enfants !
    Il n'y a aucune séparation entre les emplacements pour tentes.

    La limpieza


    No me gusto que me cambiaran el alojamiento sin consultarlo, porque el que habiamos alquilado tenia zona fuera de la tienda para que los niños jugaran y el bungalow donde nos ubicaron no.

From the manager...

Estimada Sra. Rodriguez,

Gracias por su comentario aunque lamentamos muchísimo ver su opinión negativa.
Si no le hemos consultado antes de efectuar el cambio ha sido porque le hemos dado un alojamiento mucho más superior al que teníais reservado: de una tienda amoblada con solo váter, le hemos dado un bungalow de 5 personas con baño completo, aire acondicionado/calefacción pensando en que viniendo con niños os seria mucho más cómodo ya que la zona para poder jugar es la misma para los bungalows que para las tiendas.
De todos modos, muchas gracias por su comentario y por haber venido en nuestro camping.
Un saludo,
Camping El Far

Local attractions

Once you’ve seen yourself sorted at the beach and both the watersports and wellness centres, heaps more is around to do, from exploring further along the Catalonian coast to having city days out at Barcelona and Girona, 45 and 47 kilometres away respectively. A waterpark is within easy driving distance.

If you’re around with the kids (and perhaps even if you aren’t), the Costa Brava dolphin park and zoo of Marineland Catalunya and the chutes and slides of Water World at Lloret de Mar are both good day trip options, as is PortAventura and the other theme parks around Barcelona city.

Elsewhere in Barcelona province, four national parks are around to hike, cycle and wildlife watch at, or you could stick to the coast and dot around the many seaside resorts and small village like the del Mars: have days in Canet, Malgrat, Tossa, Pineda…
