Kampaoh El Palmar, a campsite just a stone’s throw from Gibraltar
The Kampaoh El Palmar campsite is located in the Breña y Marismas de Barbate Natural Park, one of the loveliest enclaves on the Costa de la Luz coast, between Conil, Vejer de la Frontera and Zahora. It is a perfect holiday resort, to switch off in southern Spain and recharge your batteries amongst the dunes, pine forest and waves of the Atlantic Ocean…
Glamping accommodation on the Costa de la Luz
Kampaoh El Palmar entices you to stay in the 40 m² bungalows, colourful huts or the Kampaoh tents sustainably designed in Séville with eco-friendly materials such as cotton, bamboo or cane. The Buka, Bell or Emperor designs, able to accommodate 2 to 4 holidaymakers, have no shortage of advantages to attract you, notably with comfortable bedding, a mini fridge, electrical connections and lighting and mosquito net.
Are you feeling a little peckish? At the “Pic Nic” restaurant, Kampaoh El Palmar offers holidaymakers the chance to make their own piece of toast, bowl or sandwich from fresh seasonal ingredients. You can thus have lunch on-site in a fully renovated and cosy area, on the covered terrace. This enjoys a direct view over the swimming pool.
It is also possible to prepare lovely dishes, in the superbly equipped communal kitchen, to share with other holidaymakers or digital nomads. On-site, a mini-supermarket enables you to go shopping, whilst a bicycle hire service is also on hand for holidaymakers. Lastly, within this El Palmar establishment in Vejer, you’ll simply be pleasantly surprised by its modern clean and delightfully decorated Arab/Andalusian sanitary blocks.
Go off to explore the wonders of the Bay of Cádiz
From June to September, the campsite’s large swimming pool enables you to relax and cool down. Close by, a lush area entices you to idleness in the shade of parasols. Some 900 metres from the Kampaoh El Palmar campsite, there is a vast golden sandy beach which extends over several kilometres. You can come here to swim, sunbathe, or even surf or do kitesurfing…
The El Palmar beach is the region’s main surf spot with waves suitable for all skill levels. It is also the starting point for various excursions, such as the Ruta del Toro (Route of the Bull), the Wine Route or the famous Route of the White Villages. This enables you to discover an old custom, involving whitewashing houses and decorating them with colourful planters, which gives Andalusian villages an irresistible charm!
During your stay on the Kampaoh El Palmar campsite, be sure to visit the whitewashed town of Vejer de la Frontera, located on a hill 200 metres in altitude. You’ll wander through the cobbled and labyrinthine streets, track down its old restored windmills, have a coffee on the Plaza de España square and maybe attend a flamenco dancing performance, in this town considered as the birthplace of this Andalusian art form.
An unforgettable stay in Andalusia
10 minutes by car or 20 minutes by bike, Conil de la Frontera, one of the most picturesque villages on the Costa de la Luz, is on offer for you. With its long white sandy beaches, crystal-clear waters, cobbled streets and buildings such as the Torre Guzmán squat tower, Santa Catalina church, or the Convento de la Victoria convent, it has numerous wonders! Los Caños de Meca is also worth the visit; this hamlet of low houses, located above a cliff has become a meeting place for hippies, surfers and artists during the summer season!
The Andalusian town of Tarifa is less than an hour's drive from the campsite. Start by going up the Mirador del Estrecho viewpoint, from where you can admire the Moroccan mountain of Jebel Musa, located on the other side of the Strait of Gibraltar. Then bask on the heavenly Bolonia beach before embarking on a whale and dolphin observation session, aboard a glass-bottomed boat.
Don’t under any circumstances fail to visit Cadiz, the gem of Andalusia. Walk on the seafront, go along the coast up to the Santa Catalina castle, from where you can enjoy a magnificent view over the famous La Caleta beach. Find the cathedral’s golden dome in the landscape, and enter the old town and the popular “El Populo” neighbourhood. Have a break for lunch comprised of fried fish and head for the Torre del Reloj (cathedral clock tower) and Torre Tavira (built as the official watchtower now a camera obsura), the highest point of the town’s historic district...
