Camping Village Baia Blu La Tortuga
Reviewed 22 August 2010

We came to this camsite with Canvas Holidays, as we have been going with them camping since we started. The campsite is stiuated right on a shingle beach, which wasn't too good for us, but only as it was a bit painful on our feet. The island's biggest asset, to us, was the beautiful turquoise sea. We have travelled to many campsites, but none of them had a sea anywhere in the league of Sardinia's. It was great for snorkelling, with sea anenomes, sea urchins and even the occasional starfish popping into view. None of them were at risk of getting stepped on, as the water was quite deep.
For less confident swimmers, closer to shore has cracks in the sea bed, where plenty of fish roam at a close distance. Those who choose to go out a further distance could be able to see some fish of over 60cm long!
For those that prefer sand, a few minutes walk along the beach will bring you to a more sandy shore (Though with some shingle) And is so much more comfortable. Kids will be able to build all the usual sandcastles, etc.
There are a variety of water activities that the campsite offers, including banana boats, which we longed to do but did not have time.
Our caravan was well equipped though was too small for our family as it only had two bedrooms. All three children (13, 11 and 5) had to share a bedroom which did not work out well. If you have older kids or teens like us, I reccomend a three bed caravan instead, though they don't do them at this camsite.
The pitches are very small, so beware of this before you go. Some people cannot park their cars outside their caravans but must park further away. We were lucky that we could leave our car right next to us, so much more convenient!
Our caravan was facing another one's front, so we shared the same outdoor space. This was great, the fact that you are really close to the next caravan and facing them means that you can socialise a lot. We made friends with two families and loved being able to eat and enjoy eachother's company.
The point for us of camping is to make friends while you are there, so beware that there are few Canvas caravans in this campsite, so there is less chance of meeting people.
There is a lot going on, from dance lessons to a disco! It is all very italian themed as you would expect in Sardinia, and as our family didn't speak the language we couldn't join in- they give you instructions in Italian and we could not follow them!
Pizza take-away was great, and very reasonably priced. Also there is a restaurant and self service place but we didn't try these so cannot comment.
Try the ice cream in the cafe/ icecream shop. It is delicious! They also have a selection of exquisite sundaes and drinks available to order. There is live entertainment every night and is a great atmosphere. Childrens' entertainment goes on till just after ten pm, and then adult entertainment starts and goes on till midnight. It is noisy and we heard it from our caravans all the time, but isn't too loud as to interupt your evening.
I would reccomend visiting a beach in Costa Paradiso, they have so many and are beautiful, though get busy so be sure to get there early. Outside the camsite shop there are many guidebooks for sale- one about the beaches of Sardinia and has great advise as to where to go.
Also a boat trip to see the beautiful rugged coast of Sardinia is a great thing to do.

Overall; a good campsite with nice warm atmosphere and good facilities. There very few British people here though, if you have come to socialise and make friends, then it may not suit you. It feels very cultured and calm, and is very suitable for families.

Great location, situated next to the beach, this is an ideal base to explore the north of this island. The site is large but 'compact' in terms of the accommodation space being 'revenue focused'. This said, it this wasn't a problem for us as we spent most our time out and about. The beach next to the site is pretty by most beach standards but only average in comparison to the beaches a short drive left or right. We found with our children being 6 and 7, the local beach also required a lot of supervision due to the shelf that dropped quickly once in the water and the waves, although the children loved the latter despite the strong currents!! As long as you have a car, and a sense of exploration, don't let this put you off as one of the books on great beaches (and there are numerous) will soon have the children in great sandy beaches which are shallow and very family friendly.

The site itself had quite a lot of facilities including a restaurant, entertainment, children's play area, tennis courts, and quite a lot more. Great island and the food aside, probably even better than Corsica for a great family holiday!!

We stayed at Baia Blu la Tortuga in the end of June/start of July with our boys (9 and 11). It was great. There is a supermarket on site - a bit expensive, but we used it all the time, being lazy. We went with Keycamp - very very helpful staff on site. We went to Aqua Fantasy water park for one day - boys loved it (about £60 for us all). Take a picnic with a bottle of frozen water to keep it cool or pay a tenner each for hotdog and chips. We also went to Castelsardo and Aglientu towns (OK). We visited the local Nuraghi (prehistoric stone structure). Great as it was only 10 mins away. We spent most of our time on the campsite beach - the boys loved playing on inflatables and snorkelling - you can buy all beach equipment in the camp shop, but not that cheap. Take your own if you have room. Keycamp have games like chess and bowls you can borrow. We went for one meal out at the Nuraghi Tuttosoni. They bring you a set menu (no choice) of four courses of excellent local food and a bottle of wine, more than you can eat. As a veggie I was OK. Set aside a good three hours. Food was great, our kids eat most stuff. It was 30 euros a head (!) reasonable by Sardinian standards. We did mostly self catering, with a couple of takeaway pizzas after that! We had a great holiday. Hope you do too. PS - winding roads, take travel sickness stuff!

We stayed at this camping place in June 2010, in one of the caravans (campers). Most of the spots were vacant yet the weather and water were just dreamy. Basically it means that if you're going in May-June there is no need to stress about reservations. However, in July and August the prices double to triple and it's highly recommended booking in advance. If you are planning to spend time here there is no doubt: you'll simply need to rent a car. It' equidistant to both main airports and you don't want to depend on transportation having in account that it takes 2 hours w/ a rental from Alghero airport, for instance. The place is spotless, super clean and new showers and bathrooms, very good caravans (all utensils from stove top espresso makers to corkscrews), multilingual staff (not a rule in this part of Sardinia), quiet (at least in June), and with a lot of space at the beach which is a few steps away. The beach is nice but it is a bit windy and is a choice for some windsurfers. There is a supermarket, restaurants, kiosks, bars, fitness center, playground, barbecue area, etc. It is without question an obvious choice for families because of the good facilities, space and price when compared w/ a hotel or a resort. I don't think the tent places have parking spaces but everything else had its own parking space, which can be another issue if you're staying in the city. The place is gated and only vehicles with passes are allowed in. There is music by the bar every single night; for the children until 9PM and then more adult stuff until 11PM, when everything closes.
This place is not for you: if you don't want to drive; if you want to stay by one of those beaches you've seen in a postcard; don't like the atmosphere of a camping ground (although some of the housing is superior than any hotel room); don't want to have families/children running around your place; if you want city and clubbing most of the time.
This place if for you: if you have family; is looking more for a relaxed time; like to manage camping stuff , share bathroom facilities, and make your own food; don't mind the far drive from the airports through some beautiful, beautiful yet very scary roads; willing to use a couple of hours a day for driving , if you decide sightseeing.

We travelled with Canvas Holidays for a change from Eurocamp because having used them for several years we have become increasingly disillusioned with the poor standards, the totally clueless reps and the fact that they did not even acknowledge a complaint I sent to them last year following a visit to Corsica. Canvas reps on this site were brilliant, Ellen and her partner could not have been more helpful, friendly and knowledgeable about the whole area and honest - sometimes reps say everything is brilliant when it is not!! The caravan had air con, it was a bit small for us with a teenage daughter but it is so hot you only sleep and shower in it anyway. We will go for a larger one next year. Expensive to eat out but its nice to eat outside your tent or mobile home anyway. Watch the first restaurant outside the campsite - they charge you 1.50 euros per person just to use the knife fork and glass and the service was appalling, my husband had to get up 7 times during the meal to chase up our daughter's chips and to get a glass to put our water in to drink!! The pitches/mobile homes are a bit too close together and I can imagine it would be a nightmare if you are next to a noisy family with screaming kids. The site is very well maintained, kept clean and security is very good, they do check your car every time you go in. Watch your belongings, my digital camera was stolen whilst we were in the caravan and I had (on reflection foolishly) left it on the table right outside our window. It is easy to become complacent in the warm relaxed environment. In August a/c is a must if you want to sleep at night. We had no ants at all. The way to reach the site if you don't want to be sick is to take the coast road, a lovely drive and much straighter than attempting to cross the mountain road. If you arrive in the morning you can then stop off for a swim at one of the many beaches along the way. The beach next to the site is a bit gritty but its ok, it is not for very young children as the water gets deep very quickly so it is not ideal for messing around playing with a ball. The best thing is to drive north and discover some of the fantastic little coves - but get their early to get a parking space and a spot on the beach. Italians have no concept of personal space and will happily camp next to you as if they are part of your family, it is a bit disconcerting to start with but when you get used to it is quite quaint. We found most of the italians friendly and warm with a few exceptions (particularly the women). Not many speak english so I would recommend brushing up on some basics before you go. We made good friends with a lovely italian family who we met up with most days and had a real laugh with, we intend to keep in touch with them. I have to say that having been all over Europe and the caribbean over the last 10 years for a beach holiday Sardinia was the best place I have visited and I am really fussy about my beaches. Look out for jellyfish and if you get stung as I did wash it off in the sea water and take after bite or hydrocortizone cream with you to the beach. If you step on sea anenome, as my husband did (!) - got to a pharmacy and they will give you a cream to put on it with a plaster to draw out the spines. My husband went to the medical centre on the site and the Dr did not want to treat him but he insisted - he had abuot 25 spines in his foot - the Dr, rather barbarically I thought hooked them out with a sharp knife without deadening his foot first - and charged him 50 euros to do so! Best thing if you are going to go snorkelling and walk over rocks or even ifyou swim where there are rocks is to buy some good quality rubber shoes for that purpose although the spines can even get through those in some cases.

We thoroughly enjoyed this holiday and will definitely be going again.

We flws into Olbia and the journey took 90 minutes approx. along very winding and mountainous, narrow roads. Our youngest was travel sick about twenty minutes from the campsite.

We stayed in a Keycamp mobile home which was well fitted out. Some nights a little uncomfortable as no air con, even with two fans going full blast! All pitches have shade as site is in a pine forest.

Site is large set on a very large sweeping beach of shingle, which has it's plus points as no sand getting stuck in towels and everywhere else as well! There are sandy beaches close by towards St Theresa and we found a beautful beach on the Costa Paradiso called Li Cossi a bit of an effort to walk to, along a scenic path around and over some cliffs but well worth the effort. Bring mask and snorkel as plenty to see in crystal clear water on all beaches.

On the campsites beach there is Wind surfing, Bananna boats, pedaloes and Bike hire all available and reasonably priced.

Pizza takeaway excellent as you would expect in Italy.

All in all a very well run site with fantastic weather and beach, we would definitely reccommend it to all, unless you are looking for hectic night life!!

We went here at the end of june 09 (into the first week of July) with keycamp. The drive from Alghero Airport to the site at night was really, really stressful (driving on the other side of the road on roads which became very winding and narrow and mountaineous). If you are arriving into Alghero in the evening and are nervous about the drive I'd definitely recommend staying put and driving the next day in daylight! However, once we arrived (about 11:30pm) the keycamp courier met us and was very pleasant and friendly. We were pleased with the quality of the accomodation - it was spotlessly clean and had all we needed. We were in a Villaclassic and worried about not having a./c but the location under the trees was perfect and we didn't miss it at all.

The mobile homes were a little close together - but we had very nice neighbours and it wasn't a problem for us and never felt intruded upon at all.

The site itself was lovely - it's location is quite remote - you have to drive to the nearest towns. However, it was very well kept and very pleasant to be in.

There was no pool but the site is on a beach so you don't really need one. Also if you take the road to St Teresa Di Gallura there a numerous unmapped little roads which take you to lovely sandy beaches far nicer than the one on the site (the sand was a bit coarse for us).

Take the road into St Teresa - there are 2 supermarkets on the left hand side when you are nearly there - stock up here as the shop on site is expensive especially if you are not coming from the eurozone. However, the shop on site is great for fresh bread, croissants, milk etc.

Don't go buying washing up liquid and things like that as there was loads in the keycamp courier's tent left by other people. You can also borrow a parasol there which you will really appreciate on the beach.

Our 2 main day trips were to Corsica and AquaFantasy at Isola Rossa. The day in Corsica was lovely and the approach by boat was fabulous. Aqua Fantasy was a small but beautifully set water park built on a hillside. The day we went (a Thursday) it was very uncrowded, reasonable entry price and with the added bonus of no shops selling loads of tat to temp a 6 year old we had a lovely day. I would imagine teenagers might want something a bit more raucous but this was perfect for us.

We stopped off a couple of days in Alghero on the way home and whilst the old town was lovely and our hotel (Oasis) was a bit kitsch and outdated (but in a kind of nice way) I think we all missed were we'd just come from and the beach just could not compare to those that we 'discovered' near the campsite!!
