Alan Rogers Review

This site makes an excellent base for visiting Porto which is some 35 km. south of Estela. It has around 700 pitches on sandy terrain and is next to what is virtually a private beach. There are some hardstandings for caravans and motorcaravans and electrical connections to most pitches (5/15A long leads may be required). The area for tents is furthest from the beach and windswept, stunted pines give some shade. There are arrangements for car parking away from camping areas in peak season. There is a quality restaurant, a snack bar and a large swimming pool across the road from reception.

An 18-hole golf course is adjacent and huge nets along one side of the site protect campers from any stray balls. The beach is accessed via a novel double tunnel in two lengths of 40 m. beneath the dunes (open 09.00-19.00). The beach shelves steeply at some tidal stages (lifeguard 15/6-15/9).
