With summer to look forward to i have realised that in the search for the perfect holiday the decision is in many ways decided by the reviews people leave. I read reviews but never leave one and well Bai Blu deserves better.
We visited in late June early July 2011 for two weeks with our three boys 10,5 and 3. The weather was perfect. The camp site sits in pine trees a two minute walk from the beach. Its a beautiful site, really chilled out. Great wee park for the kids and the animation team worked tirelessy with my boys despite them being pretty much the only Brits. They put on a short show most nights and get the kids up to dance with an embaressed mum or dad. If its not your scene and it wasnt ours every night it finishes early and very little noise is heard from the Keycamp area.
Caravans were good and the Keycamp couple were excellent, even helped me fix the hire car i bumped. BBQ, decking, well spaced what more do you need ?
The site beach is coarse sand and you can have as much room on it as you want. It gets deep quite quick so if the kids were in so were we. The sea is crystal blue with a great big rock you can swim out to....and i did every morning before breakfast. There are so many beaches. San Terisa about half an hour away is stunning, the sand is much finer and the truly unbelievably turqoise sea is much shallower, you will rub shoulders with the locals its very popular. Paradiso bay has to be seen to be believed and the 10 minute walk in along the rocky coast is awesome. Not a bad wee waterpark nearby also.
So what are the negatives-
You need a hire car as the site is quite isolated and well there's just miles of coastline to explore.
Its expensive and we found eating out extortinate not that theres a huge choice within walking distance of the campsite. The campsite shop was ok for bits and bobs but you need a big supermarket, another reason for a hire car as its a good 10 minutes drive.
My wife and i would love to go back we feel we will struggle to find anything similar that has that mix of what we want and what the kids want. Unfortunately my oldest boy at 12 going on 16 would torment my younger two because theres not enough for him to do.
If you dont mind self catering most nights, you love the beach and loath the typical British tourist trail then its the perfect peacefull sun-kissed summer holiday.
