Check Out How Jane Got On When She Stayed At Las Palmeras For The First Time
As it was my first holiday at Las Palmeras, I could hardly contain my excitement on the morning we jetted off. We flew into Barcelona El Prat airport and picked up our car from the Hertz desk at the airport. Las Palmeras campsite is easily accessed from the N340 (Barcelona-Tarragona) and it’s approx. a 1 hour, 45 mins drive. We found the thought of driving in a foreign country slightly daunting. In reality we had nothing to be worried about as we easily navigated our way to the campsite. One word of warning though – beware of the sharp bend at the entrance of this beachside campsite.
First Impressions Of Our Beachside Campsite
The welcoming and helpful staff met us on arrival at the campsite reception. They were extremely efficient at their job. Once we were checked in, we made our way to our Bali Mobile home. The site is long and thin (1.5 km. so bicycles are handy and these can be rented on site ). Our mobile was located at the back of the park in a fantastic, quiet location. It was modern and comfortable with plenty of space for a family. With two bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom and lots of storage, our mobile had the perfect amount of space for us. There are over 650 pitches with plenty of shade for those who have their own tents or campers. It’s wonderful location is one of the reasons that we booked the campsite – it runs parallel to a white sandy beach, and didn’t disappoint. The beach was stunning and provided hours of fun.
Las Palmeras has plenty of facilities on site. There are two pleasant swimming pools by the sea, one is for children and they are surrounded by a large, lawned area for sunbathing with some views of the beach. So too has the terrace in front of the restaurant which offers a good varied menu that includes tapas. An additional snack bar opens in high season. There is a well stocked shop on site, offering a wide selection of fresh produce.
Plenty To Do And See In The Surrounding Area
The surrounding area has so much for the whole family to enjoy with plenty of day trips to choose from. Aqualeon, just north of Tarragona is a large safari park with shows and a fun-filled waterpark. Port Aventura, is another amazing theme park with the biggest roller coaster in Europe. Barcelona City is an easy drive away approx. 90 mins away. It is one of the greatest cities on Earth with delicious cusine, enchanting architecture and plenty to keep football lovers happy with Barcelona Football Club just a short trip from the city centre.
For its beachside location alone, Las Palmeras is worthy of a visit and, with so many facilities on offer, it is a lively site offering something for the whole family.
