For 26 years Tartaruga Camping has been run successfully by Anna and Veit.
The campsite is situated at the southern end of the Bay of Laganas. (see “How to get there”) On the well-kept site in terraces with numerous olive trees, some old and gnarled, an additional more than 700 trees have been planted in the course of these 10 years. Even in the high season there were to be shady allotments available. Through the many small and larger terraces, the large number of trees and shrubs there is always enough distance from your camping neighbour,even when we are busy.
The site extends from the tavern with its splendid situation down to a narrow pebble beach, from which each spring we erase the traces of the winter storms. If you are out for quietness, for having the cicadas sing your lullaby, enjoying delicious Greek cuisine or just relaxing your body and mind between pristine olive trees, you are just right in this little paradise. Anna’s and Veit’s hospitality has become legend by now, lots of guests return again and again, even if it is “only” to give their holiday in Greece a relaxing final week’s treat.
The white pebble beach – 60 m below the tavern – invites you for a swim. Two jetties and a floating platform – all with a ladder into the sea – promise untroubled bathing pleasures. In the water there are some buoys to tie up small boats. The tiny island of Marathonissi is ca. 2.5 km from the beach – it is an eye-catcher to be seen from the beach and from the tavern’s terrace. It can be reached by power boat in ca. 10 minutes from the beach. The tavern provides magnificent low-price food.
There is also a small mini-market for purchasing the daily necessities. In early summer the turtles can be splendidly observed from the terrace as they are swimming in the crystal-clear water. Anna and Veit have binoculars at hand for you to borrow. For early birds the sun’s rising from the sea and a subsequent refreshing swim are the best way to start the day.
