Camping La Garrofa, Almeria, Andalucia

camping la garrofa, almeria


Camping La Garrofa can be found along the N-340a, 7km west of Amleria. First impressions conjure a step back in time to the 70s and the simple architecture is reminiscent of the old English Pontins camps of that era.

Thankfully that is where the comparison ends and the natural cove and plethora of trees give the site shelter, not only from the sun, but also from the more commercialised resorts that flank it.

Facilities are good with a little supermarket, washing machines, hot showers and clean toilets (no flushing paper down them though). The bar/café is cute enough and offers visitors the usual fare of Spanish tapas, a good range of beers and satellite television.

The pitches are tight but comfortable enough for a large RV and its canopy (although the trees provide plenty of shade).


The beach at camping la garrofa, almeria

The beach at Camping La Garrofa is almost zen like in its tranquility. I found peace here.


Perhaps the best thing Camping La Garrofa has to offer is its cosy little beach which unusually for Spain is pebbly rather than sandy. While sitting on the shore line listening to the gentle waves washing in and out over the stones I was immediately transported back to my childhood summers spent on the south coast of England.

I was happily lost in the simplicity and peacefulness of the moment.

Camping La Garrofa is part of the ACSI scheme meaning you can take advantage of lower rates in the off-season periods. I thoroughly recommend a stay here, even if you for one night as its tranquillity will be enough to replenish you.
