El Pinar, a campsite by the beach in Blanes
What better than a campsite running alongside the beach for a holiday on the Costa Brava? On El Pinar, holidaymakers can enjoy an amazing location in Blanes, with a beach next to this high-end campsite having a water park and leisure facilities. Perfect for families.
A perfect campsite to make the most of the Costa Brava
El Pinar is a high-end campsite in Blanes, a seaside resort on the Costa Brava located an hour by road from Barcelona. Just a stone’s throw from Lloret de Mar, Blanes is a sought-after destination for families, who can make the most of superb beaches, but also a multitude of entertainment and activities offered for young and old alike. Moreover, all of its attractions enabled it to become Catalonia’s first town to hold the certificate “Family Tourist Destination” (awarded by the Catalonia Tourist Board).
The El Pinar campsite is located, as its name - Spanish for “pine grove” - suggests, by one of these beaches. It also runs alongside the Delta de la Tordera nature reserve, and occupies a surface area of around 10 hectares of pine forest. Its location enables it to offer holidaymakers the chance to occupy caravanning pitches right by the beach, thus providing an unimpeded view over the Mediterranean.
The majority of pitches are intended to accommodate campers with their tent, caravan and camper but this Blanes campsite also has a selection of quality holiday rental accommodation. This takes the form of mobile homes, bungalows, chalets and Safari tents.
Luxury mobile homes in Blanes
The mobile homes on the El Pinar campsite are all in the Premium category, indeed they are the most high-end on the campsite. Put in for the beginning of the 2019 season, they are ultra-modern and occupy 2 landscaped and unique areas, 300 metres from the beach. They are equipped with air conditioning, a large terrace and their occupants can take advantage of the campsite’s Wi-Fi network!
So that holidaymakers want for nothing during their stay, on-site there is an entire range of services. It is therefore unnecessary to use your car to go shopping or to get your bread every day. Everything is available on the campsite. The latter for example has a bar-restaurant, a takeaway service, a grocery, a laundry, a vegetable garden, a tourist information point at reception and other facilities.
For holidaymaker comfort, cleanliness is essential and the bathroom installations are, as with other facilities, cleaned virtually all day. Also note that in the plaza around the bar and restaurant, El Pinar’s major events take place. For example a screen lets you watch international sports competitions, and the stage hosts diverse entertainment during the summer, equally in the daytime and evening.
Swimming and beach area in the Catalan sunshine
El Pinar’s idyllic location by the Mediterranean with direct access to the beach is not its only attraction.. This campsite indeed has several recreational and sports facilities which never fail to delight holidaymakers who use them in vast numbers during the high season.
Amongst these, the swimming area is open from April to mid-September. This brings together a large swimming pool and a small children’s pool. Around the pools a timber-covered solarium, upon which a multitude of sunbeds are set up, enables those who wish to the opportunity to make the most of the Catalan sunshine!
Off the campsite, there is no shortage of suggestions for trips out. The must-sees include visits to the town of Girona and the city of Barcelona, the Marimurtra Botanical Garden, with 3,000 subtropical and Mediterranean species, the historic centre of Blanes, and the Sant Francesc and Santa Cristina inlets which are amongst the loveliest such creeks on the Costa Brava. There are also other attractions which cannot be overlooked. In July, the town of Blanes is also home to one of the most significant firework festivals in Europe!
