Tortuga is named after the giant turtle-like rock off the site’s beautiful sandy beach, and is a large, professionally run campsite. The 450 sizeable touring pitches (all with 3/10A electricity) are on grass and coarse-grained sand, and mostly shaded by tall pines with banks of colourful oleanders and superb wide paved boulevards providing easy access. This is a busy, bustling site with plenty to do, with its attractive bars and restaurants close to the beach. The excellent play areas are cleverly placed to allow parents a break whilst enjoying lunch and dinner, but there are no pools here. The site’s full entertainment programme, based in a pleasant auditorium, is first class. Overall, we were impressed by this quality family site.
There is a delightful lounge/cocktail bar close to the beach, an à la carte restaurant, plus a self-service restaurant. An elevated sitting out area also stages entertainment and is very popular as there are romantic views of the sea. Tortuga is used by many tour operators, but there is little interference with the touring pitches. Many high grade watersports are on offer with tuition, including sub-aqua diving, alongside the beach bar and kiosk.
