How to choose the perfect location for camping by the sea?

Have you thought of everything for camping by the sea? The Tropicana helps you choose the best possible location!

What could be more wonderful than spending your vacation by the sea, with the gentle sound of the waves as your lullaby and the sea air to revitalize you?

Beachside camping offers a unique experience, but choosing the perfect location can sometimes be a challenge.

Between the proximity of the beach, the view of the ocean, the orientation of the sun and the layout of the infrastructure, there are many elements to take into account. Camping by the sea is not as easy as it seems.

But don’t panic, we are here to guide you in your choice and help you find the ideal place to camp with your feet in the sand. Follow the wise advice of Tropicana, your 5-star campsite in Saint-Jean-de-Monts .

1 – Close to the beach

One of the most important criteria when choosing your location for camping by the sea is of course proximity to the beach.


There’s nothing like being able to access the ocean in just a few steps, for refreshing morning swims or lazy sessions on the warm sand.


When booking, find out the distance between your pitch and the beach, and choose the closest pitches for easy and quick access to the sea.


For example, the Tropicana is located 800 meters from the beautiful beach of Saint-Jean-de-Monts. This way, you camp completely legally, with all the necessary amenities , and of course in the heart of nature.

2 – With ocean view

For an even more immersive experience, opt for a location with an ocean view.


You will be able to fully relax, contemplating the sunset from your tent or camper van, with the magical spectacle of the horizon setting ablaze in front of you.


Beachfront locations generally offer the best views, but be sure to book in advance as they are often very popular. Camping by the sea always involves a bit of anticipation .

3 – Depending on the orientation of the sun

Also consider the orientation of the sun when choosing your seaside campsite.


If you like to enjoy the sun all day, opt for a location facing south or west, where you can benefit from the warm rays of the sun from morning until evening.


Conversely, if you prefer to stay in the shade during the hottest hours of the day, look for a shady location under trees or sheltered by dunes.

4 – Depending on infrastructure and services

Finally, don’t forget to take into account the infrastructure and services available on the campsite. Make sure your location is close to toilet blocks, drinking water points and play areas if you are traveling with family.


Also check the availability of services such as electricity, Wi-Fi and barbecue areas to ensure you have a comfortable and enjoyable stay. At Tropicana you will have everything you need for the duration of your vacation.
