A white sandy beach and trips to Barcelona

Hands up if your family likes beaches? Thought so. Take a look at Argelès-sur-Mer’s impressive stretch of pale, soft sand and you’ll see why Hippocampe is a firm family favourite for beach holiday fans.

Add warm, clear Mediterranean waters, an excellent range of facilities nearby and water sports galore and it all adds up to a great location - just a mile from your parc. In addition to the inviting pool complex, complete with water slides, test your skills with the parc’s range of sports facilities. Or you could take part in the occasional talent contests held during the evenings at La Sirène, Hippocampe’s larger, sister parc across the road. La Sirène’s lively night-time fun can sometimes be heard, together with some road noise.

Great swimming pool and although we had access to the sister camp our children preferred Hippocampe. Ray and Wendy are extremely caring and looked after us superbly. Hippocampe is highly recommended to those wanting a relaxing holiday with excellent pool facilities. The live shows are a little late but of great quality especially the Phil Collins act. Many thanks.

Fantastic holiday. Ray and Wendy were great. Really friendly and helpful. Loved Hippocampe. Smaller and more friendly than La Sirene. Weather was very good , with just 1 cloudy day. Kids loved the organised football. They also enjoyed the battle archery and tried the segway.
Caravan was spotless and loved the outside area.
Overall another great holiday in Argeles.
