Camping Los Escullos: Motorhome pitch

General

  • Family-friendly park in Nijar and in the driest region of Europe
  • Beach 20 minutes' walk away; several more within a short drive
  • Large pool, sun terrace and sports ground for tennis and football

As you might have gleefully discovered before arrival, the Andalusia region of Almeria is the driest in Europe, and so arid that it's also the site of the continent's only desert. (Westerns have been shot in cactus-filled Tabernas for decades.)

So as you'd might expect, it's all very sunny round these here parts too: the region around Camping Los Escullos, a family-friendly park in Nijar, gets about 328 days of solid sun a year and temperatures very rarely drop below 20 degrees Celsius.

Outdoor sports can be had in this climate all year round, so Los Escullos has set up its site accordingly, adding a sports ground for guests to tackle tennis, football, basketball and volleyball. Less energetically, there's a big outdoor pool heated by solar panels, a spacious sun terrace with deckchairs and parasols, and free wifi in all areas.

The Camping Los Escullos pitches all have access to the site amenities of two loo blocks with hot showers (heated with solar energy in summer and with gas in winter), disabled facilities, a washing-up area and a laundry room with tumble dryer.

Another sunny little touch here? The site playground is next to the Los Escullos restaurant, so you can keep a beady eye on the kids while you tuck into some tasty local dishes.

Please note

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

The restaurant is open between 01/01 and 31/12.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 01/07 and 01/09 (subject to weather conditions).

    Site whilst pretty much in the middle of nowhere it’s well maintained and facilities are kept clean and tidy. Being in this area there is issue with water which I understand you should not drink and toilet paper is put in bins not down loo. There is shop with regular supply of fresh bread, swimming pool and restaurant.

    Disliked: 

    Don’t know if just time of year we went but flies were a pain with people even walking around with fly swaters

Buen camping en pleno paraje de Cabo de Gata24/06/2021

Reviewer's country: SpainAbel Jesús S.Confirmed

  • Electric optional gravel pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    La parcela era suficientemente amplia para aparcar un coche, montar una tienda de campaña canadiense de 4 personas y además mesas y sillas. Las instalaciones del camping bastante buenas, con la toma de corriente justo en la parte trasera de la parcela, con enchufe europeo y de camping, las duchas y baños limpios normalmente y con un supermercado con buen stock y precios competitivos.

    El ambiente del camping era bastante familiar, con muchas familias con niños aunque también había algún que otro grupo de jóvenes de "fiesta" pero todo en un ambiente agradable.

    Sobre la ubicación, se encuentra en pleno paraje natural de Cabo de Gata, por lo que no hay mucho alrededor, alguna que otra pequeña localidad y ya está. La playa de los Escullos se encuentra quizá a 15-20 minutos andando y en coche menos de 5 minutos. También recomiendo la zona de la Isleta, a 5 minutos en coche y donde hay algunos bares/restaurantes.

    Disliked: 

    La parcela asignada tenía algunas zonas de roca dura y fue bastante complicado clavar las piquetas, tuve que utilizar unas especiales de gran grosor especificas para terrenos rocosos. Por lo demás todo muy bien y muy positivo.

Local attractions

As it's Almeria, a whole heap of excellent attractions can be found in the area surrounding Camping Los Escullos, like birdwatching among the desert landscape of the Cabo de Gata-Níjar natural park, visiting the casas cuevas (cave houses) in Barrio de Chanca, Alhabia, Gádor and Benahadux, or seeing the Alcazaba 10th-century castle built by Khalifa Abdh-ur-Rehman III.

Beaches are never far away in Andalusia either: Playa Los Escullos is a 20-minute walk away, and San Miguel de Levante, San Miguel de Poniente, La Garrofa, San Telmo and Las Olas are all within a short drive for activities like windsurfing, scuba diving and snorkelling (lying back and sunbathing is allowed too).

Finally, anyone for golf? A few splendid golf courses are in the Cabo de la Gata park – and as it's Almeria, you can even tee off on a desert course…
