Overview of Playa Joyel

Situated on the sunny shores of the Cantabria coast between the lively cities Bilbao and Santander, 4* Campsite Playa Joyel is family friendly resort in the spirit of “Green Spain”. With direct access to a gorgeous sandy beach and the inviting waters of the Bay of Biscay, Joyel is a joyful destination ideally suited to balmy beach breaks.

Long sunny days are best enjoyed at the campsite’s pool complex that features a selection of pools for all swimming abilities and an outdoor Jacuzzi. The enviable location of the resort rewards campers with the chance to spend sunny moments by the sea any time they like. From building sandcastles and soaking up the sun to brilliant water sports such as surfing, diving, kayaking and snorkelling, it’s all possible close to the resort.

There’s much more to discover at Playa Joyel including a small petting zoo that’s home to chickens, pigs, peacocks, deer, ducks and goats. Active campers can serve up aces on the tennis court while those looking for shade from the midday sun can stay entertained in the games room. Nice dining and shopping experiences are possible in the lively village of Noja.
