Budget Travel Camping Beaches

not really recommended

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 9, 2013

stayed on this campsite for nearly 3 weeks - but only because it was a perfect place for our dog. We could take the dog to the beach and and walks with the dog in the surrounding was perfect - but - most pitches are small and the not sufficient. Electric installations are not according to EU Guidelines (broken and not wórking properly). Showers are old, no individual temp. control possible, water drainage is not working properly. Only one warm shower for male availabel, for woman 3. Camper disposal station not sufficient also here the drainage is not working. Behind the dunes lot of waste. Direct access to the beach but swimming in front of the camp-site Swimming in the sea forbidden (red flag). We were informed by the red cross staff that swimming in front of the campsite is forbidden because of polution (waste). After a small walk on hte beach (approx. 100m) swimming is allowed. Food in the restaurant expensive and the quality is low level.

behind sand dunes in San Leone

If you want to camp near Agrigento by the seaside but close for sightseeing turn into San Leone village. Here there were a few camping places next to long sandy beach. We stayed two nights in Nettuno - didn't check other camps which are closer to village to compare because we could move by car and it was okay for that price. Here it is quite small one good both for campers and tents with lots of washing and shower facilities: but here the water pipes work quite bad (these are ones which you press the button and wait that it stop running the water by itself) and lots of water is spent for nothing. It doesn't matter that you don't have to 'pay' extra for water - it's lost and gone where it could be otherwise spent for useful purpose. That really disturbed me as well as washing basins which were stucked with toothpaste, hair and somewhat dirty just because people didn't wait to clean after themselves because of that pipe problem.

As for the camping ground: it is in dense shadow of pine trees which is really nice; on the earthen ground it is easy to pitch the tent but the problem is when it rains - then you get mud everywhere unlike in the grounds where they use earth and mix it with sand. It was heavy rain and wind on our second night and actually too late to move. It can be just bit scary to think what could happen if branch fall on your tent and there's just fragile protection of the canvas upon your head. Luckily it didn't happen but we saw fallen trees next morning on the main road of San Leone.

Unique Quality: Camp is rated with three stars. Hot shower is for free, beach is behind the fence and sand dune, a minute walk away from your tent (you actually don't get views to the seaside from camp). We didn't have lots of cats in the camp but I saw rat near the tent.
I had somewhat strange feel of the camp that you're actually not being taken well cared of and that guests seldom greet eachother which is not case in many other, friendler camps and they would leave trash in the corners thinking 'well, we paid and now let other clean after us' - as if they were not enough trash bins. Maybe staff is just tired after the season and indifferent to the guests and they somewhat neglect the facilities. Camp restaurant is open on evenings only and not every day, shop is half empty. When it rained its roof leaked rain - but okay, we're not of sugar. Food was quite bad except pizza which looked and tasted okay - good that we ate there only once, because we were convinced they're actually saving with good ingredients... hahah.

The rate was 7 EUR per person a day + car fee 3 EUR + tent fee 7 EUR in Sept 2009

Directions: there are signs for the camp in San Leone
