If you are considering a family camping holiday on the Costa Brava, you cannot do better than Camoping Aquarius. Direct access to the beach, and what a beach, shallow gently shelving sea, means that it is safe for kids, however, there are lifeguards all along the beach as well, miles of golden sand perfect for sand castles, plenty of space for kites, football, volley ball, boules etc. There are areas reserved for non motorised watersports, where you can hire kit, take lessons etc (power boats and jet skis available a few miles down the beach - all power boats must stay 300m from the beach).
The site itself is immaculate, with attractive gardens and flowerbeds - this site really puts effort into making it attractive and intimate. There are plenty of toilets and washing facilities, with lots of hot water, and they are permanently cleaned by friendly staff. There are 2 great kids play areas, free crazy golf and a kids club. Because it is not a huge site, children can have a relatively large degree of freedom without having to worry
The site was setup by the Rupp Family in 1972 and it has remained a family business ever since. As the owners are German, it does have a significant proportion of German Families staying, however, I have never had a problem with communication, all of the staff speak excellent English, as do most of the German families, including their kids. On the whole, German campers are extremely polite, tidy and well behaved, which is more than can be said for other nationalities!
Some people will be disappointed by lack of a pool; who needs a pool when the sea is so close? Do you really trust that campsite pools are always clean? are they safe?
Only downside is that the Disco at L'Amfora (campsite 1/4 of a mile away) can be loud

The region around the camp site is immensely diverse with a long history and tradition, which invites every enthusiast of culture, nature and gastronomy to explore the vicinity. You can visit the Greek-Roman ruins on the plains of Emporda, get lost within the walls of some medieval village or follow the footsteps of the pilgrims and pirates that once lived around the steep rock formations of Cap de Creus, a landscape you will recognize in the paintings of the genius Salvador Dali. The province of Girona is well known for its superb gastronomy. With the countless restaurants everywhere it is difficult “not to eat well”… especially if you drink one of the many good wines from the region.
