Information about the campsite

Don Cactus campsite is beside the beach, on the Tropical Coast of Granada province. It is a unique and diverse region; the north is dry and cooler with the intense light of desert; the southern part is rich with torrents and wide valleys where the vegetation runs riot. To the east is one of the least spoilt and most beautiful stretches of the Andalucian Mediterranean coastline. Protected from the cold by the high peaks of the Sierra Nevada, and warmed by the hot winds from North Africa, it has a subtropical micro climate.

It is the only place in Europe, where tropical plants such as avocados, mangos, papaya, oranges, and the traditional sugar care used in the production of its famous rum, are to be found.

Don Cactus campsite opened in 1973. Over the past 35 years we have continued to grow, develop and diversify so we can always offer the level of service expected of a first class campsite.

Amongst other installations you will find the bar and restaurant, with its terrace, looking directly out to sea, a supermarket, a children’s play park, a barbecue area, a swimming pool free access, car wash, motor camper service area, fridge hire. In the campsite you can enjoy sports facilities such as tennis court, football pitch, basketball court, petanque area. We remind you also, that we can book tickets for you to visit the Alhambra Palace in Granada.

Our swimming pool is the heart of our identity. There are two waterfalls, fountains and a Jacuzzi making it the ideal place to relax. There are both changing rooms and hammocks. One part of the pool is specially designed for young children with a beach-like entrance to the water.

The vegetation of the site, along with the sub tropical climate we enjoy, turn it into a veritable tropical style swimming pool. It can be used for most of the year.

La playa de Carchuna es arenosa con piedras y se extiende desde el Cabo de Sacratif hasta Calahonda con casi 5 Km. de recorrido y unos 80 metros de anchura. El nivel de ocupación es normalmente bajo. Sus aguas son claras y azules con abundante pesca.
En el año 2012 le han vuelto a conceder la bandera azul de la Comunidad Europea por la calidad de sus aguas.

El tamaño de la arena suele variar desde granos de arroz o incluso algo menos, hasta nueces e incluso pelotas de tenis. Depende fundamentalmente del último temporal que haya habido. Cuando hay levante sale arena fina, y cuando hay poniente salen más piedras.
Las siguientes fotografías se tomaron el mismo día y en un radio de 50 metros enfrente del camping, donde se puede apreciar la variedad de la arena.
