General

  • Peaceful rural site in a quiet part of the Costa Brava
  • On a shaded hill a 100-metre stroll from a sandy beach
  • Bar-restaurant, playground, TV room and shop

What a whale of a time will be had at Camping Moby Dick near Catalonia's Girona. For it's in a lovely locale across from the 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.

  • Liked: 

    The location, amenities power and water on the pitch was good.

    Disliked: 

    Very hilly and pitches are very uneven and there were a lot of ants I mean a lot. May be the time we went?

From the manager...

Thank you for your kind rating. We are glad you had a good stay. For any ant issue we recommend using a vinegar spray. It works very well and is very inexpensive. Thank you again for your feedback.

    A very friendly welcome from the owner. We were escorted around the available pitches for us to choose where we would like to set up (not high season). There was a lot of shade available. The showers and toilets were exceptionally clean. They were cleaned daily. There is a small restaurant/ bar and pool at the entrance.

    Disliked: 

    It would have been nice to have got water available at the washing up station

From the manager...

Thank you for your kind review. We are happy that your stay was satisfactory! We hope to see you again in the future!

Friendly family run in amazing spot14/09/2021

  • Liked: 

    Friendly family run, in a fabulous location , the management are very helpful. It is in an ideal location, walking distance to stunning Palafrugell, and to supermarket restaurants. The site is set amongst trees on terraces.
    Some of the pitches are smaller than others, but George goes to great lengths to make sure everyone is happy in their spot.
    There is a little pool, which would be good for kids but I was happy walking to the beach
    Facilities are “rustic” but showers always hot and toilets clean.

    Disliked:

Very friendly site with clean facilities, and level shady pitches.06/07/2020

Reviewer's country: SpainTom R.Confirmed

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

    The campsite is superbly well located almost in the centre of Calella de Palafrugell, really just a 5 minute walk, or less, from the beaches. I think at one time it probably was rural (it has been there over 50 years) but the town, in the form of large suburban houses, has grown up around it over time. It is full of very shady pitches on terraces; because it is on a hillside, there are no large flat areas, but the pitches are a good size nonetheless, and level. The toilet blocks are close to the pitches, in spite of COVID restrictions were never busy (no queues) and they were absolutely spotlessly clean. The staff and owners are very friendly. There's a small playground and a small pool as well. Excellent value for money.

    Disliked: 

    The only downside was the road that runs through the site - it is completely separated from the site, so there is no road danger at all, but it is a bit noisy at night.

From the manager...

Hi Tom,
Thank you so much for your kind review! We hope to see you again someday!

Kind Regards,
Camping Moby Dick

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.
