General

  • Family-run site 900 metres from the beach and Tamarit Castle
  • Ten minutes' drive from Tarragona and 20 from PortAventura World
  • Big pool, playground, beach shuttle and traditional Spanish food

A tiptop Tarragona time will be had by all at Camping Caledonia on the Spanish coast: it's less than a kilometre from a famed sandy beach, an easy amble from a treetop adventure park, a short drive from PortAventura... and a drive of a mere 10 minutes or so to the splendid old city of Tarragona.

The beach is that of Tamarit, famed in this part of Catalonian coast for its long length of golden sand and spectacular Tamarit Castle, sitting above these beaut sands since the 11th century. Platja Llarga, a family-friendly beach with calm waters for safe paddling, is a short drive away.

This is an old part of ancient Catalonia, so you're well set for delving into the traditions and tasty treats of the region, whether at Tarragona, further afield at Barcelona or just via an easy ambling time around the surrounding coastline. Or stay on site instead, for Spanish cuisine at the restaurant or to grill up your own efforts on the communal barbecues.

Camping Caledonia's restaurant overlooks the 300m² pool and roomy paddling pool, both of which have plenty of space alongside for soaking up the Spanish sun. Also among the leisure options are a good-sized playground, a free miniature golf course and a tennis court; regular entertainment and activities including sports tournaments and a kids' club run in July and August.

And another tiptop feature of this smashing coastal site? If you can't be faffed with the walk to the beach in hot high season, a shuttle bus runs from here straight to the sands.

Would definitely recommend this site and will return. 07/08/2018

    Easy access to site and good sized pitches. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Good sized pool and entertainment is on offer although we did not participate. Site was kept very clean and rubbish was collected frequently. The beach was accessed via a coded door and a 15 minute walk. It was great.
    We enjoyed our stay and plan to return again. We would not hesitate to recommend this site .

    Disliked: 

    The train passed frequently but after a while, you got used to it and hardly heard it.

Train spotters delight 11/09/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom mike n. Confirmed

  • Liked: 

    Pool bar restaurant area and close to main road, no excessive road noise and nothing at night. Plenty of children's play areas. Pitch was a decent size but you had to hunt for EHU parked under lime or similar trees caravan and car covered in sap next morning. Beach not far away

    Disliked: 

    The site has nothing really going for it really, unless you are a train spotter. Situated right beside the main rail line quite a few trains throughout except for 5 hrs during the night trains running from about 4am. The site was mainly filled with bungalows and seasonal pitches. Showers hot and clean

Good pitch, the few toilets and showers were clean, quiet after 11pm. 25/08/2017

  • Liked: 

    Easily found almost next to the main road, large site with everything one would expect of such a site, pools, bar, shop, entertainments, and at a reasonable cost. Polite welcome, good English spoken, good instructions. Slight problem at this point as it turned out Pitch-Up had not confirmed our booking at this point, however credit to the staff as they were able to fit us in with no fuss. (However, this does beg a question as to the commission that Pitch-Up took at the booking time, I have nothing but praise for the company on the whole, but if the guys are reading this, perhaps they could let me know, I'll give them a few days before I chase it up otherwise.) Good local area, good proximity to beach.

    Disliked: 

    Hopefully seen as constructive, and not easy to rectify, but being such a large site, we were a long way from the main hub. Could've been more more toilet/shower blocks? And, no one told us it was directly alongside the main rail link south from Barcelona, which was quite busy through the night.

    El camino hacia la playa por la noche, al no haber luz da un poco de miedo. Estaría bien adaptar algo de luz.

Directions


From the AP-7, take Exit 32 signposted Altafulla-Torredembarra. At the roundabout follow directions to Tarragona and continue on the N-340 for approximately 5km. At the following roundabout take the exit signposted Altafulla-Tamarit. After 500m you will find our entrance.

Local attractions

The beach of Tamarit 900 metres from the site runs for over a kilometre and a half of scenic coastline, edged on one side by Tamarit Castle. The sands are well sorted for facilities and amenities in summer, including a bar and coffee shop, bike rental, drink and ice cream sales, beach bars and restaurants.

Family days are a cinch to sort from here both within walking and driving distance: within a kilometre there's the Jungle Trek treetop adventure park, one of the biggest amusement parks in Catalonia, while 20 minutes' drive will take you to PortAventura World, the most visited theme park in Spain, or to Aquópolis, the big waterpark five minutes at La Pineda. The family-friendly beach of Playa de la Mora is within a couple of kilometres.

And then, of course, it's time for a few days in Tarragona. Reach this spectacular city in around 10 minutes by car along the A7, or in about 35 minutes by bus from the stop 700 metres from Camping Caledonia, for sights such as its ancient cathedral and its Roman ruins including the city walls, a circus and an amphitheatre.
