Camping Nauta Tenerife - a luxury campsite near Las Galletas

camping nauta tenerife

Alison and I were lucky enough, a few years ago, to travel to New Zealand, where we rented a motor caravan and travelled round the South Island, staying overnight at various campsites that offered loads of ameneties.

You parked up your motorhome, plugged it in to the electricity supply and then were able to use all the facilities, which included such things as shower blocks with toilets, communal kitchen/dining area, laundry room, swimming pool, children's play area - even, on one occasion, a hot tub!

Well, it appears that Tenerife has a few similarly appointed campsites. One of the best ones has to be Camping Nauta, near the southern town of Las Galletas.

This huge, sprawling complex offers three types of accommodation - in tents (bring your own), in motorhomes or caravans (some are permanently situated there and are offered for rent by their owners) and wooden huts that can sleep up to four people.

The campsite is open all year round and a place on it can be booked, for a set fee per night (see below).

First opened in 1989, it has, in 2010 received a thorough refurbishment and has room for up to 6,000 people. There are 2,500 tent sites, room for 250 motorhomes/caravans and the aforementioned cabins number 40.

  • double swimming pool (adults/children)
  • cafeteria/bar
  • supermarket
  • laundry
  • toilets/showers
  • basketball, tennis & handball courts
  • electricity supply
  • ample parking

You see from the above that there's almost no need to leave the campsite once you're there. That could be your only option, if you don't have a car, because there is little or no bus service passing the campsite.

At first, there was no bus at all along the road where the site is. Back in 2007, negotiations were underway to establish an hourly bus service to pass the site, but I'm still not absolutely sure about it. I've received feedback from Joseph, who actually lives on Camping Nauta and he says that he thinks there is a bus, but, to quote him, "I have no idea when it runs, what day it comes, or what time it comes"!

The nearest "proper" bus stops are in El Fraile, which you get to via a walk of about 15 minutes through the surrounding banana plantations. Alternatively, turn right at the main road and this takes you into the village of Guargacho (also about 15 minutes).

Be aware that, to walk all the way into Las Galletas/Costa del Silencio, you're looking at a trek of some four miles.

If you're prepared to fork out for the fare, a taxi is the most convenient option. Reception at the campsite will call one for you and they turn up in minutes. Expect to pay up to 10 euros for Las Galletas and up to 12 euros for Los Cristianos.

All in all, an excellent place to stay if you don't want to spend a fortune on accommodation

To find this campsite, exit the TF-1 motorway at junction 26, following the sign for Guaza. From the Los Cristianos direction, just take the second exit from the first roundabout you encounter. From the other direction, you'll end up travelling the wrong way, so, halfway up the hill, use the petrol station on the left to turn round, go back down the hill, stay in the left hand lane, pass under the motorway bridge, taking the second exit from the roundabout.

Stay on this road, bearing right whenever there's any option, then, after a longish, straight run, you'll arrive at another roundabout, where you should take the third exit. You'll find yourself on a long, straight road, passing banana plantations. Watch out for, after a while, a small, colourful sign on the right, for Camping Nauta. Turn right down this side road and, eventually, on the left, you'll spot campervans parked on the other side of the bushes. The entrance is a bit further on.
