Seaside towns, both in Poland and abroad, are the most frequent holiday destinations for most tourists. And no wonder! You can relax wonderfully by the sea – nothing charges internal batteries like the sun, beach and fun in the water. And in addition: cruises, walks along the lively promenade, dinners with a view of the endless water stretching to the horizon and the one-of-a-kind, unique atmosphere of seaside towns, which you miss all year round. The best campsites by the sea as a form of accommodation is one of the most attractive and at the same time more and more popular ways to spend this time. Why?
First of all, spending your vacation on a camping site by the sea gives you a chance for close, unrestricted contact with nature. It's an experience impossible to live in the full hustle and bustle of a hotel. When you spend the night in a tent, caravan or cottage, you can enjoy meals in the open air, birds singing everywhere or the smell of a pine forest. The gentle rays of the sun are an alarm clock, and a good night's sleep: a view of the stars shining in the sky.
A huge advantage of campsites by the sea is also their location. If you rent accommodation in private accommodation, you have to take into account a longer walk to the beach - because this type of accommodation is usually far from the shoreline. If, however, you care about the close proximity to the sea, the choice will be narrowed down to the largest (and usually the most expensive) hotels. Campsites by the sea are not uncommon - both in Poland and abroad you will find campsites that offer direct access to the beach. It's hard to imagine a better option: a few steps and a splash, you're swimming in the sea!
And even if the campsite is not located directly by the sea, but some distance away, it is certainly located in a picturesque place – because beautiful surroundings are a real must for campers. The proximity of the forest, meadows or fields means that the typical hustle and bustle of seaside towns does not reach the campsite. So you can enjoy peace and quiet, cut off from the daily rush and immerse yourself in the relaxing surroundings of nature.
Campsites by the sea also offer various forms of accommodation. You can sleep in a tent, experiencing the charms of camping in its purest form, come with a motorhome or caravan, or rent accommodation in a cottage, bungalow or – in modern centers – modern and “Instagram style” glamping. Everyone will find the right option for themselves.
When choosing a campsite near the sea, the first thing you pay attention to is the location – that's obvious. In addition to the distance from the beach, it is also worth checking the distance from the town center, as well as the nearest area: whether there are shops, restaurants or bicycle and sports equipment rentals.
When looking for the perfect campsite, an important criterion will also be the standard. The offer for campers is growing year by year, so among the available places everyone will find something for themselves. It is worth paying attention to the entire infrastructure around the campsite: toilets, showers, public kitchens. Some resorts also offer access to a laundry room, on-site BBQ, or private restrooms. Motorhome travelers should check whether the selected campsite by the sea has the so-called camper service – including the possibility of emptying the gray water tank and refueling with fresh water.
Campsites by the sea in popular towns are usually distinguished by extensive camping and recreation facilities. In larger centers you will find not only accommodation, but also shops, restaurants, cafes, water and sports equipment rentals, and mini-clubs for children that run professional animations. The standard of campsites is also raised by swimming pools and SPA zones as well as sports infrastructure: tennis courts, outdoor gyms, volleyball, basketball and football fields. In the high season, you can also count on cyclical events: dance parties with live music, concerts and performances for children.
Although the Baltic Sea can be capricious in terms of weather, it still attracts a lot of tourists every year.
