What’s it like?
“A subtropical paradise directly on the sea” is how it’s described, and quite accurately indeed. La Torre del Sol campsite the kind of place you dream of when longing to escape. It sits right next to the beach overlooking the Mediterranean, separated only by a small wall with plants on it. The whole campsite is full of palm trees which create cool patches of shade in amongst the glistening sunshine. Each plot is generously sized, giving you the privacy you need without being completely secluded.
They accept both tents and caravans on the campsite. It’s a very large space, so there are plenty of pitches. You have three options regarding size: the 1st is the standard pitch of 70 sq m, the 2nd is the comfort pitch of 100 sq m, which has a separate place to park your vehicle, and the 3rd is the grand comfort pitch, which is the same as the comfort pitch but with its own water point and drainage system. They also offer a selection of cottages and chalets which can be rented out for up to 6 people.
Some people like the place so much that they return year in and year out. The campsite also offers the option of parking up your caravan there permanently and they will wash it regularly for you whilst ensuring its security.
