On the edge of a popular seaside resort, with direct access to a sandy beach and bay
A large, family-run site with a good range of modern facilities, set among mature trees and next to the beach, make this an outstanding high or low season site on the Costa Verde. It is an ideal choice for those who like lots going on and only 500 yards away is the excellent municipal sports centre. The Guggenheim museum in Bilbao, and the Costa Verde’s stunning mountains, are among other attractions close to hand.

We visited this site as ralliers with the camping & caravan club & thoroughly enjoyed our stay.The weather in this part of Spain can be changeable & according to Fernando,the very helpful bar & restaurant manager,this year was particularly bad in April/May & June,being more like winter weather.We did have some very warm spells though & put them to good use visiting the local area,especially the Picos de Europa. The whole staff at Playa Joyel are one big happy family (literally) & made us very welcome.We may try this area again later in the season when the weather is more settled.

A great campsite for families,the beach is very good with lovely clean well cared for sand .Low tides allow a lovely walk to another village to other eateries.The only downfalls are chance of rain ,not always hot,and the waves at the beach.Of the eleven days there red warnings on five days so no swimming ,currents very strong indeed.
