Camping in Ronda – A practical guide to camping in Spain
As we travel across the country of Spain in our little rental car we are endeavoring to experience the local way of camping. You will hopefully find this to be a practical guide, should you find yourselves looking to camp in Spain.
We want to save you the trouble of navigating Spanish websites and provide helpful tips and advice about the places we have stayed at.
Equipped with just a three-man tent, ground sheet, bedding and some basic cooking utensils, off we went. Keep in mind that we traveled in the month of May which is Spring and not considered high season.
‘Camping El Sur’ – Camping in Ronda
If you are looking for a relaxed place to stay in the rolling hills of southern Spain, then consider camping in Ronda. Ronda is also directly in the middle of Seville, Granada, Málaga and Gibraltar.
Camping El Sur is the name of the closest place for camping in Ronda. It is possible to pitch a tent (113 sites), pull up a caravan or hire a bungalow. The staff here are helpful and speak English quite well.
The location was fantastic, just 1.5km from the centre of town. When driving through the town, the campsite is very well sign posted (that’s how we found it). The 10 minute walk into town is almost preferable over driving into town and trying to find a park.
The facilities at Camping El Sur were standard. Large amenities blocks with hot water (you must provide your own toilet paper), drinking taps, a laundry, sports facilities, playground, pool (in high season) and wifi at a cost of €3 for the whole length of your stay.
The wifi was terrible though, if you were lucky enough to get a connection, it proceeded to be very slow and frustrating.
Dogs are permitted all year round, if they are kept on leash. The campsite restaurant had a full menu with quality food and friendly service, for competitive prices and you can order fresh bread daily from reception. Camping El Sur is also suitable for disabled persons.
For two adults, one tent and a car we paid €24 per night. This includes your own marked out pitch (enough room for a large tent or caravan and a car). Electricity is extra.
Camping in Ronda was a great place to stay. It looked quite popular (not in an over run way though) and visitors adhered to the strict quite and peaceful rules.
