When locating Camping Las Dunas with a Google Map based application on your mobile phone or tablet, search for “camping las dunas costa brava” and you will obtain the correct indications. However, if you are using a car navigation system you have to search for the nearest village which is “San Martin de Ampurias”. If you approach from the south (l’Escala) you have to continue north past this village and in 3 km you reach Camping Las Dunas on the same road. If you approach from the north (Sant Pere Pescador) you reach Camping Las Dunas before reaching the village.
If you travel by motorhome or with a caravan we recommend the southern approach through l’Escala since otherwise you have to pass a narrow bridge over the river Fluvià in Sant Pere Pescador. To do so you have to take exit 5 on the AP-7 motorway following directions for “l’Escala – Empúries”. Just before reaching l’Escala you turn left at a large roundabout following directions to “Sant Martí d’Empúries”, from there you carry on along the same road following directions “Sant Pere Pescador”.
Our small medical post is located directly behind the reception. A private doctor can be visited here twice a day in high season and once a day in low season. For emergencies you can visit the CAP (medical centre) in l’Escala at 6 km from Las Dunas. The nearest hospital is in the region’s capital Figueres at 25 km from the campsite. At reception we will be pleased to give you the directions of the fastest route to get there. We have installed eight AED’s spread over the whole camp site and every year a substantial part of our staff receives training in the use of these defibrillators and general RCP techniques.
Each year packing the car before leaving on holiday can be quite a challenge. At Camping Las Dunas we have decided to lend a hand and offer a range of rental products that can make this task a lot easier.
Camping Las Dunas is located at the beach of the Bay of Rosas in the Alt Empordà region in the north of Spain. The climate is Mediterranean i.e. determined by the tempering influence of the Mediterranean Sea. The landscape of the region is mountainous in the north and northwest and flat in the south where the Empordà-plain lies. This particular geomorphology and the rain shade created by the tramuntana have a strong influence on the local weather.
An important characteristic of the local weather is the tramuntana (derived from the Latin transmontanus which means “from behind the mountains”). The tramuntana is a strong and fresh wind from the north or northwest that mainly blows from November to March. Through the influence of the Pyrenees and the French central massif the wind increases its power and also affects the Balearic Islands (mainly Menorca and Mallorca). In summer the wind on the campsite tends to blow from the southeast (Garbí).
The average annual temperature is approximately 15oC. Winters are relatively fresh, but without much frost. The summers are dry and warm, but tempered by a gentle sea breeze. The hottest month is July and the coldest is January
Table with the average temperature per month:
The highest and lowest temperatures ever measured are 38oC and -16oC
Spring and autumn are the periods with most precipitation, with a significant difference between the 500 litres a year on the Empordà plain and the 1200 litres a year in the mountains. During the summer often thunderstorms form over the mountains, but they rarely reach the cost. In some rare occasions the Empordà has suffered snowfall on sea level. The last time was in 2010 and caused significant problems in the electricity supply.
To asure a pleasant end memorable stay for all our guests we have had to define a set of rules and regulations. We kindly request all our guests to comply with these rules so everybody can enjoy their time on las Dunas.
