General

  • Peaceful site in a quiet part of the Costa Brava
  • 100 metres from a sandy beach
  • On a small hill shaded by mature oak and pine trees

What a whale of a time will be had at Camping Moby Dick in Catalonia's Girona. For it's in lovely locale across from a Spanish seafront, and only 100 metres or so from a scenic and sandy Spanish beach in the quiet coastal town of Calella de Palafrugell: if you yearn for the Costa Brava without heaving crowds, this should be a serene spot for you.

Camping Moby Dick is small, rural and family run, welcoming families, solo wanderers and groups of friends, and with a peaceful vibe for chilled Costa Brava days. Pitches are on terraces on a small hill shaded by mature oak and pine trees, and some have sea views.

The site is all set up to have most of what you'll need to stay put for quiet days, with a bar-restaurant, a TV room, a playground, a ping pong table, and a grocery shop selling fresh bread and fruit. The modern amenities include toilet blocks, showers and a laundry room.

Noisy site, good pool, great location, variable quality of pitches. 27/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Jenny D. Confirmed

  • Electric optional mixed tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Close proximity to the beach, village and shop, the nice pool for the kids. Some lovely pitches among the pines at the back of the site although unfortunately we did not have one of them. The cafe/restaurant looked nice although we didn't try it. Good to have laundry facilities although they were basic.

    Disliked: 

    Temperamental showers, the location of our pitch right next to the toilets with a group of lads on the other side (the site does not ban same sex groups like a lot do), the small size of our pitch which only just fitted our tent and which we couldn't park our car on (we were able to unload at the pitch but had to carry our stuff up a set of steps and had to park the car in the carpark), the fact that other groups had to walk through our pitch to get to the toilets, the nightclub or something banging out music late into the night not far away.

Lovely pitches, clean facilities and good location. 03/07/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Anya B. Confirmed

  • Electric optional mixed tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The location was excellent on the edge of beautiful Palafugella. Staff were friendly, facilities were fine and my pitch was private, shaded and with beautiful views of the Med. I had a choice of a busier spot closer to the road to town and the pool or up the hill and quieter with good views. I chose the latter. I enjoyed my stay here.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing really. Only minor issue was it was noisy at night but only until 11-ish and that was simply a fiesta in town and nothing to do with the site. Just Spanish life!

Local attractions

The eight (!) award-winning beaches of Calella de Palafrugell around Camping Moby Dick should keep sand and serenity seekers content for some time, but if you want to up the watery ante at any point, you can join the diving school at Port Pelegri beach, hire kayaks at Canadell beach, or take a sailing excursion from the beach of Port Bo – or do the whole heap in between sandy days on beach towels (recommended).

Two walking trails to take you round the area are within easy reach of the site, one from Sant Roc to Golfet beach, and another from the centre of Calella de Palafrugell to the village of Llafranc. For cycling, access the local Via Verde, connecting Saita Margarita to the village of Palamós, a tiptop stop in itself for its swimming, sailing and windsurfing bay.

Garden fans will go gaga at the nearby and famed botanical gardens of Cap Roig, spreading down terraces from the castle of the Cap Roig estate to the sea and lauded as one of the very best gardens on the whole of the Med. Spanish and international artists exhibit their works at the gardens during the summer months.
