The story of Moby Dick

The story of Moby Dick

In 1971, Joan Manuel Serrat wrote, “and you come and go after kissing my village; you leave, thinking of coming back”. It was the lyric of a “Mediterranean” song that was inspired by this place, Calella de Palafrugell, an ancient fishing village rooted between the sea and the land.

Four years earlier, in 1967, Santiago Simon decided to preserve the wooded environments of Calella de Palafrugell and offer travellers a unique place to enjoy the intimacy of this charming village where they could rest and discover themselves, fellow travellers, nature and the townspeople.

True to the most important lesson he learned from his parents, to respect the earth, Santiago Simon began writing the Camping Moby Dick story: starting a small family business in a little fishing village, filled with both history and charm.

Located on a small hill overlooking the unequaled blue of the Mediterranean sea, Camping Moby Dick is surrounded by cork, pine and century-old oak trees that host under their shade any travellers looking for a corner in the world where they can kiss the village and leave thinking of coming back, just as Serrat always sings.

In the shade of Camping Moby Dick you can get away from the day to day and enjoy the calm of the sea and land; relax or choose an activity; sunbathe or go diving in a natural saltwater pool; listen to the sound of the wind from a log cabin or accompany local fishermen for habeneras on the beach of Sant Roc; climb up hills and mountains or walk down narrow tile-covered streets. Greet people by saying “hola”, “bonjour”, “hi” or “hallo”. We don’t know anyone, but we know everyone.

In the shade of Camping Moby Dick, you’ll find what you’re looking for on your journey.

We want to meet you, in the shade of Camping Moby Dick.
