Alan Rogers Review
Ideally situated in the Parc Natural del Delta del Ebro, a unique area of wetland and a World Heritage site, Eucaliptus is close to the golden sands of Platja Eucaliptus. Arriving here is like finding an oasis after the extraordinary drive through miles of flat marshland and rice fields. There are 264 small, level, shady grass pitches, 156 for touring, all with electricity (6A). The site is very well maintained and has a pleasant bar/restaurant with a terrace that overlooks both the pool area and the campsite’s own lagoon with its variety of wildlife. The pool has an attractive grassy area for sunbathing and the lagoon (fenced) replicates, in miniature, the habitat of the Delta, with helpful signs identifying flora and fauna.
There is access to the beach through a gate at the back of the site, where care must be taken with children as there is an open irrigation channel. There are purpose built hides and observation platforms nearby making this site a birdwatchers’ paradise. Although this site is quite remote, it would still suit families, and a great day out would be on a hired bicycle with a butterfly net. Due to the nature of the Delta, mosquitoes may be encountered and you are advised to take precautions, although the owners take regular action to reduce this nuisance.
