Camping in Marbella
Camping is one of the cheapest ways to stay in Marbella, and due to the moderately warm climate all year round, this makes it an ideal location to sleep under canvas. Campsites in Marbella are broken down into three categories with the third being the most basic. A first category campsite is one which will be well-equipped and have on on-site supermarket or other amenities such as tennis or racquetball courts. A second category will have a swimming pool, café or restaurant and hot running water in addition to a laundry, whilst the third will simply have showers and toilets.
Most campsites in Marbella are only open during the summer season, and therefore it is advisable to book well in advance, and for either a caravan, there is usually a minimum pitch fee of between €14 and €26 and a cost for the actual tent or caravan itself of between €4.50 and €10 per night (plus 7% tax), depending on the time of year for a category two campsite. Discounts are sometimes offered for stays up to fifteen and thirty days, so this is also worth asking about or looking for when making the reservation.
When booking either by phone or online, it is important that you check the location of the campsite in Marbella as some are located towards the suburbs, and are away from the beaches and hustle and bustle of the city centre.
