Very close to Almayate Costa, we can find another place of great interest if we are looking for an attractive and luxurious campsite near the coast. Located in Torre del Mar, we can enjoy the Rio Velez, a perfect wetland for those of us who love an increasingly popular and acclaimed hobby, ornithology. To make it even better, right next to it is the famous Torre del Mar Beach, which is famous for its dogs, so you can cool off with them.

This campsite also has direct access to the beach, with 17 bungalows and more than 140 plots where you can sleep in luxury.

Are you familiar with the beach of Almayate? It is a beach that belongs to Vélez Málaga. It is a beach of dark sand and very little gravel, ideal for walking along the shore or to go with the little ones of the family. It is located in an isolated area, not very urbanised, thus enhancing its charming landscape, being one of the best beaches in the province.

Camping Cabopino

I am sure you have yet to discover many beautiful landscapes on the Costa del Sol. Places of indescribable natural beauty, even those that are close to some urbanisations. This is what happens with the beach that gives its name to this campsite, Playa Cabopino, a spectacular beach, surrounded by dunes. A beach isolated from the tourist mass that is concentrated on the coast of Marbella. The calm, crystalline and shallow waters make it an idyllic paradise for anyone who visits it.

Right next to this beach is where you will find the best campsite in Malaga. At least, from our point of view and the opinion of the numerous users. The campsite has about 60 bungalows, almost nothing, isn’t it? As if that wasn’t enough, in the hottest months you can cool off in the swimming pools or do different activities with the family. And what makes this campsite different from the rest? It has its own adventure circuit, with a climbing wall and zip lines. A candidate for the best campsite on the Costa del Sol.

Camping El Sur

Located in the interior of the province of Malaga, this campsite is within the municipality of Ronda. This small but impressive town will leave you speechless. Walking through the old part of the town is to discover a good part of the history of our beloved province, Andalusia. You will be able to prove me right when you visit the imposing Puente Nuevo or Puente del Tajo, more than 100 metres high over the Guadalevín river. The bridge is one of the most important and beautiful civil engineering works of the community, as well as its beautiful Arab baths or palaces like the one of the Moorish King or the one of Mondragón.

The campsite is located on the outskirts of Ronda, being this another of the best campsites in the province of Malaga. This impressive complex is located between holm oaks, almond trees and centenary olive trees. In addition, this campsite has numerous plots, with the possibility of resting in one of its cosy flats for 4 people.
