We are going camping!
Near the city of Barcelona, there is a wide range of campsites, where you can enjoy a holiday or a weekend getaway. The fifty or so establishments that feature in Barcelona Provincial Council's tourism promotion schemes meet all the requirements to ensure the best possible stay with an exceptional level of quality and personalised service. With so many accommodation possibilities available – caravans, camper vans, tents and bungalows –, you will not be short of sleeping options. You will only need to decide if you prefer to be by the sea, in the interior or in the mountains.
If your children have just shouted "beach!", you are in luck, because dotted all along the coast are numerous campsites by the sea, located in ideal settings to enjoy the sun and water sports. Many of them also have direct access to the beach, so you will not need to use the car during your stay. Calella, Malgrat de Mar, Pineda de Mar and Santa Susanna are four municipalities that have been certified as Family Holiday Destinations on the Costa Barcelona, so, if you want to go on holiday to a place that offers special family-orientated entertainment, you need not look any further. You have found it!
Going camping in the interior of Barcelona's regions will enable you to experience rural traditions and sample some of the best dishes of traditional Catalonian cuisine. And not to be missed are visits to the local country markets – authentic showcases of the produce that the land offers. In the town squares of Vic, Calaf and Manresa, you will be struck by the ever increasing range of specialities on offer.
Mountain enthusiasts will be delighted by the campsites located in the Barcelona Pyrenees. Cadí-Moixeró Natural Park, located in the region of Berguedà, has such a wide biodiversity that your children will thoroughly enjoy the organised trips to observe the wildlife and will want to know everything about the lives, habitat and characteristics of the animals.
