On the Green Coast, between the ocean and the mountains

Arrive at Playa Joyel on the Costa Verde and prepare to be wowed: this parc sits between the Atlantic Ocean and the Cantabrian Mountains, with direct access to a glorious, sandy beach.

There’s something for everyone here: two tennis courts, an underground disco (open every night in July and August), plus a play area and even an animal park that opens twice a week. But the main attraction has to be the beach nearby. Playa Joyel is known as the ‘Green Coast’, thanks to the sea’s rich green and blue waters and lush scenery all around. In the distance, the peaks of the Cantabrian and Picos de Europa mountains rise up spectacularly. And you’re just a short walk from lively Noja. Perfect for shopping, eating and dancing. Anyone for tapas?

Campsite is clean and well ran and v good for beach access
Lack of teen near/teen activities activities
The kids had many issues with the running of games and pizza place
Pools are small and right by entrance which is issue with children
(eg Compared with Le Ruisseau)
I found Compact Classic did not have Oven which is laughable - but that seems to be my fault for not reading
Hob only had 2 burners and when Gas engineer failed to show up
Paul and Catherine offered to switch to new mobile - but I declined
(this should be fixed before a customer is put in mobile)

Campsite is very crowded and closterfobic, the beach is fantastic but the on site amenities are dated. The swimming pools are constantly overcrowded . The levelof entertainment on site is also misguiding on the advertisement for the park

Lovely park, beach was fab, a bit quite at night no entertainment at night. Town was bit far to walk. The surrounding area is fab similar to the west coast of Ireland and some great sandy beaches. Go to the animal park near Santander a must see.

excellent park. from locking my front door in Ballincollig County Cork to unlocking my door of the mobile at Noja, my car travelled a distance of 53 kms. The rest was looked after by Brittany ferries on their new route Cork to Santander.
Park was central to the Coast for touring etc.

Great beach and lovely campsite. Short drive to the campsite from the airport. We had great weather and traveled around with suggestions from the eurocamp staff to some lovely towns and caves. The mobiles were lovely and clean and well stocked with blankets and crockery. We had great couriers ,who were there when we needed them and we saw them around the site as they worked, Could not recommend them strongly enough, very friendly. 10\10. overall a great holiday.

This was a brilliant PARC, we'll be back. It's very safe for children, direct access to an incredible beach. Antonio in the bike shop is great for advice and local knowledge. Amazing walks and cycle routes. This is an unknown gem.
