Camping in Tarragona – 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 Las Palmeras’ – Camping in Tarragona

For a great location where the beaches are sandy and uncrowded, consider camping in Tarragona. Situated on the east coast of Spain just 1.5 hours south of Barcelona. Las Palmeras Camspite has much to offer during the summer season and we found it to be family friendly and affordable place to stay.

At just 20 per night you can’t go wrong. This was for one plot to pitch our tent on, one car and two adults with no electricity. There are a couple of different accommodation types, including plots for tents or caravans, bungalows and lodges. In summer I believe there are some sport activities, though we did not get to witness this.

The facilities included an all hours access to the private beach front, pool, restaurant (great service and food), mini mart and amenities with power points. Unfortunately the showers had a 20 second timer button and there was no toilet paper or hand soap provided. There is wifi available at an extra cost, a 24 hour reception, a play ground, sinks for washing dishes and a laundry.

The town of Tarragona is just a few kilometres along the Mediterranean coast where you will find a World Heritage Architecture and Roman Ruins. So for plenty of water activities, an abundance of beaches, a breath of fresh air from the big city, consider camping in Tarragona.
