Privileged location

Located in the village of Calella de Palafrugell, on a small hill and 150 meters from the sea, our campsite is the best located of the beaches of Palafrugell:

  • 3 minutes walk from the beach
  • 5 minutes walk from the centre of the village

The campsite is an old forest adapted to both camping and motorhomes that has preserved its natural and rustic character in the same Calella de Palafrugell and that combines its traditional style with updated services:

  • Heated saltwater swimming pool
  • New, larger plots with electricity and water
  • Bungalows
  • Tipi tents

From many of our plots you can enjoy sea views, allowing you to appreciate even more the good moments of happiness that you can breathe in this little paradise on the Costa Brava.

Read on if you are interested in understanding the reason for our tradition.


In 1971, the Catalan songwriter Joan Manuel Serrat spent a few months in Calella de Palafrugell. His experiences in our land inspired him to compose his song ‘Mediterráneo’, which recently won the Catalan television competition about the most important song in the history of Catalonia. The lyrics said: “… and you come and go after kissing my village; you leave, thinking of coming back … “, lyrics that have their roots in the land and sea of ​​this old fishing village.

Four years before the arrival of Serrat in Calella, in 1967, Santiago Simón decided to preserve the forested area of Calella de Palafrugell and offer visitors and travelers a unique place to enjoy the privacy of this charming place and thus be able to rest and find oneself, with fellow travelers, with nature or with the people of the village.
True to his great learnings inherited from his parents, those of respecting the land, Santiago Simón began to write the story of Camping Moby Dick: a small family business in a small fishing village, both full of history and charm.

Located on a small hill overlooking the unrivaled blue of the Mediterranean sea, Camping Moby Dick is populated by cork oaks, holm oaks and ancient pines that welcome under their shade all travelers looking for a corner in the world to approach and kiss their village … leaving them to think of coming back, as Serrat will always sing to us.

In the shade of Camping Moby Dick, you can unwind from the day to day and enjoy the calm of its sea and its land. You choose relaxation or you choose action. You go out in the sun or you dive into the salty sea water. You can hear the notes of the wind from a wooden cabin or the Havaneres songs that accompany the fishermen at the Playa of Port Bo. You climb its hills and mountains or go down its narrow stone streets.

You say “hola”, “bonjour”, “hi” or “hallo”. You do not know anyone, but you know everyone.



In the shade of Camping Moby Dick, you will find what you are looking for in your trip: a small hidden gem of calm in the village of Calella de Palafrugell.

We welcome you to find us.

Best located campsite ever

Right in the centre of this lovely town with excellent beaches and restaurants. The facilities were clean and pitches nice and shady. The onsite cafe had a lovely breakfast. Would recommend to anyone camping on the Costa Brava. This is a hidden gem. Espanayork, Leeds UK, September, 2015  

A hidden gem

I don't really want to review Moby Dick as it is such a lovely site I want to keep it a secret but the staff are so friendly it deserves recognition. Drifter 10, September 2017

A lifetime of happy camping

‘I've been coming here on and off since I was 7 yrs old... I just turned 51!! We have been bringing our kids since they were 6 & 7... it is still beautiful and friendly. A proper family campsite with pine trees, cork oak and terraces’. Seana R, UK, August, 2016

Will definitely return

‘I just came back from France and Spain and I found this beautiful place accidentally. The campsite has a fabulous situation. Overlooking the sea and, honestly, the restaurant's food was the best we tried on the entire trip. A little gem of a place’. TrishaMerthyrTydfil, September 2015
