Spring and autumn camping

All year-round camping by the sea
Where can I camp by the sea year-round?
There are so many places to choose from if you’re looking for campsites open all year near the sea.

Or perhaps you want to explore a region of France or the Netherlands out of season. Whatever the reason, Sunêlia offers a selection of 5-star campsites and 4-star campsites in stunning locations by the sea.
If you love the drama of the ocean waves in winter (or summer), we suggest choosing a Sunêlia campsite on the edge of the Atlantic ocean. You can wander on vast open beaches without seeing another person for miles, and stop off on your way back for a mug of delicious French hot chocolate and of course a pastry or croissant.
You’ll also find several Sunêlia luxury campsites on the Mediterranean coast, which promises plenty of sunshine year-round and guaranteed heat in the summer. Even in the depths of winter the southern coasts of Spain and France have plenty of days when its warm enough to eat lunch outside and enjoy the stunning blue of the Mediterranean sea.
Can I take my dog camping with me?
There’s no need to leave your dog at home when you choose a dog friendly Sunêlia campsite. He’s part of the family and will love running in the countryside or bounding along the beach and chasing the waves.
Dogs aren´t usually allowed on European main beaches in summer, but you’ll find some smaller beaches in Europe allow dogs out of season, so you can take your best friend on holiday with you as many Sunêlia campsites are dog friendly. Take your dog on your camping holiday with you this year and he’ll enjoy the adventure as much as you!
