Alan Rogers Review
Situated in pleasant surroundings to the north of Santander, this small and well maintained site is ideal as a stopover for those using the ferry to and from Portsmouth. The site is four kilometres from the city centre and is within easy walking distance of Malenas beach, Cabo Mayor Lighthouse and El Sardinero. There are 56 level grass touring pitches, each with 10A electricity (2-pin), water tap and dishwashing sink. There are in excess of 80 dedicated tent pitches and 49 bungalows are available for hire. A modern bar/restaurant with terrace, serving basic but adequate meals throughout the season is situated at the top end of the site.
Adjacent to the resataurant is an outdoor swimming pool which is in use between May and September. Buses to and from Santander operate all year 250 m. from the site and during July/August they stop at the site entrance.
One main building at the lower end of the site houses the clean sanitary facilities with preset showers and washbasins (cold water only). Second block opens in July/Aug. Minimal facilities for disabled visitors. Laundry facilities. Small shop for basics (July/Aug). Bar/restaurant (basic meals and pizza) with TV. Outdoor swimming pool and paddling pool.
