General

  • Clean and quiet site on the Costa Brava
  • Direct access to a spectacular sandy beach
  • Excellent facilities including a swimming pool, restaurant and shop

'Exceptionally clean and quiet' is how the crew at Càmping Playa Brava sums up its splendid Spanish site, and that's before even getting to its lush locale – and its beach.

It's all on the Costa Brava, right in the protected marine area of the Montgrí, Medes Islands and Baix Ter Natural Park and with direct access to the sandy beach of Platja de Pals, a dune-surrounded stretch of three and a half kilometres. The utterly fab medieval town of Pals, set on a hilltop near the Costa Brava coast in the Bay of Emporda, is within easy driving distance.

Playa Brava is a green and pleasant site, with a level camping field mostly shaded by mature trees. It has an outdoor pool with a spacious lawn area for lounging and sunbathing, overlooked by the terrace of the site restaurant and bar, and there's also a roomy playground – send the kids off to expend energy here while you play tennis or pétanque (or beach volleyball, or miniature golf) and then plunge into the water…?

Amenities include five modern and well-maintained toilet and shower blocks with accessible facilities, a launderette with washing machines and dryers, a drying room and a washing-up area.

The site also has a bar and restaurant for meals in or out and a well-stocked supermarket. Entertainment runs regularly throughout July and August.

Please note

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 19/05 and 09/09 (subject to weather conditions).

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Single-sex bookings of 7 or more people (couples and immediate family members excepted) are not permitted via Pitchup.com.

  • Electric forest floor pitch (pinewood)

  • Liked: 

    The toilet block was clean and looked after, pools were ok shop was good although a little expensive as expected

    Disliked: 

    When we arrived we were told to go and find a pitch in a certain area, we drive around for over 30 minutes trying to find one to fit our tent we found two empty pitches and only one was just big enough to pitch our tent. Very dusty and strong Gerri park our car. We ended up leaving 6 days early. We also had to wear wristbands fro the whole of our stay which could not be removed once on so even when we were off site we had to wear these.

  • Liked: 

    The toilet block was very clean , very good facilities including play aria, right next to a lovely sandy beach and river, shaded pitches , tennis courts, football pitch, volleyball, day and evening entertainment for the children, shop bakery and a restaurant right next to the reception. Plenty of activities. No dogs allowed.

    Disliked: 

    Pool good but not big enough for the size of the site. We also thought the mini club activities were expensive. You have to pay for the Wi-Fi but we didn't need it. €5 for one day, but cheaper if you want to pay for a week or longer.

Local attractions

Càmping Playa Brava is well set to use as a base for getting around the Costa Brava and Girona, whether you yearn for lazy afternoons on the beach or busy days around the likes of Barcelona and Pals.

Whichever you pick, you really must have a hike (or stroll) along the coastal path, dipping down into its little coves or up to its cliffs – both pretty spectacular – followed by an enthusiastic sample of the local cuisine, based around the food of both the sea and the mountains.

Diving is available among the clear waters, fish and marine mammals of the Montgrí, Medes Islands and Baix Ter Natural Park, along with nature spotting and birdwatching: around 189 bird species have been seen to flock around its waters.

If you're more into urban and/or historic days, Playa Brava is handily set for places like Empuries, with its Roman ruins; the Dali Museum in Figueres; first-rate Pals; the ceramics of La Bisbal, and – but of course – Barcelona, the Catalonian capital stuffed with sights such as Barcelona Cathedral (magnif), the medieval Old Town and Las Ramblas, the Liceu Opera House and a whole heap more.
