L'Hippocampe

France - Languedoc-Roussillon - Argelès-sur-Mer

Camping L'Hippocampe

L'Hippocampe and La Sirène; the combi-park made up of these two well-known and popular campsites is only separated by a road and has a superb beach just 1km away. On the L'Hippocampe section, that is a little smaller and quieter, the Fiji 1 and Waikiki 1 mobile homes are to be found.

Why camping L'Hippocampe ?

  • Being quieter, this section of the campsite is particularly suited to families with young children.
  • The L'Hippocampe section has a swimming pool, playground and multi sports ground.
  • As guest on this part of the campsite you can use all the facilities on the La Sirène part.

Tip from the specialist:

"A lovely, well-arranged campsite with its own swimming pool and free entry to all the facilities of La Sirene, the large sister campsite on the opposite side of the road."

The surrounding area of L'Hippocampe

Argelès-sur-Mer used to be located by the sea but, due to peat formation, it is now to be found about 1km inland. A new resort, Argelès-Plage, has delevoped on the coast. Both towns have their own centre with shops, bars and restaurants however they almost meet up. So, on your way to the beach you'll find plenty of activity. There is also Port Argelès where many pleasure boats are docked.
