This site is ideally located on Spain’s Costa Verde, next to a fantastic beach and close to the port of Santander.

Playa Joyel is a first-class campsite, enjoying direct access to a really beautiful beach with wide golden sand and with spectacular views of the Cantabrian Mountains. There is a good range of well maintained amenities for the whole family, including a restaurant and a well stocked supermarket and in July and August, a take-away, hairdressers and beauty salon. Teenagers will love the underground disco which operates every night in July and August, while the site’s animal park is sure to be a hit with younger children. There is also a new indoor play area. Special rates are offered to guests at the nearby 18-hole golf course. The compact pitches vary in size, are defined by hedges and trees, and most have shade. Customers select their own pitch on arrival, on a first-come first-served basis, so those with large outfits should aim to arrive early, if possible.
