njoy and get to know each all day (and night) long! More than just value for money holidays! Would definitely recommend!!

Ines Meira 3 / 5

Sad to see that Gale's natural beauty is being destroyed. Tourists walk the natural sand walls of this beach with zero common sense/ respect for the nature. In front of this g

amping area from Gale's camping site there are no fences and tourists go all the way to the limit of the cliffs, in order to have that perfect instagram photo. Really sad. Management should build fences (as there are in other areas of the camping site) in order to preserv the nature, because when the cliffs are gone, so the clients. There should be some kind of patrol/ supervision, at least to warn people from going to near from the edge. I was there on the 09-07-21 sunset, and the situation was just chaotic/ childish. Maybe only when a drunk tourist falls at night from the cliff and sues the place, there will be finally fences. This shouldn't be necessairy.

Driving 3-4 kilometers off the main road to discover that you need to pay more than 20€ (van parking + electricity) for dirty stink shower's and toilets made me a bit disapp

inted. I recommend it only if you really need parking with electricity and couldn't find other camping sites.
