OPEN FROM 15th of April to 18th of Sept
IDEAL FOR YOUNG CHILDREN
BEACH SPORTS FOR TEENS
Located just across the road from its sister site La Sirène, L’Hippocampe embraces a slower, more relaxed pace. The entire resort is pedestrianised giving parents with young children added pace-of-mind. Cool off at the leisurely pool complex with waterslides, water jets and fountains after a round of ping-pong or petanque. Teens can enjoy beach sports including beach soccer, rugby, volleyball and sand ball while smaller kids can take part in La Sirène’s “Syppox Kids Club”. The whole family can enjoy the lively evening entertainment schedule at La Sirène (note some noise maybe heard at L’Hippocampe from the night time entertainment) and take advantage of its sister site’s facilities just across the road.
KelAir Campotel has been bringing families to L’Hippocame for the past 17 years.
An easy-going, fully pedestrianised campsite which is ideal for young children.

Swimming pool regulations
Use of the pools is free and pools are generally not heated (unless otherwise specified). Some resorts require special bracelets to be worn in the swimming pool area at a refundable fee. There may be a charge for on-site Water Parks.
Due to hygiene regulations, many park owners have banned swim shorts. Please pack conventional lycra-style swimwear, though they can usually be purchased locally. Conventional swimwear only is permitted in and around swimming pools, i.e. Speedo or boxer swimwear. No t-shirts or shorts to be worn.Swimming caps may be required in some sites.
Not all resorts have pool attendants on duty and those that do may only be present in July or August, or for a limited time during the day. We strongly advise you supervise your children at all times when they are using swimming pool/water chutes/slides.
Water Chutes and Waterslides
Each resort will have its own regulations clearly indicated, that may relate to age, height and opening times. Pools, water chutes and waterslides are used at the customers’ own risk.
