Beachside Camping Spain

On our recent tour of small campsites in Andalucia we came across this smallish site, rather dated but not to be beaten by its location right on the beach.

Definately in need of some care and attention what struck us most was that it seemed to be frequented only by Spanish, which is very rare on the Spanish Mediterranean coast.

This was one of Spain´s first campsites and dates from 1957. I´m sure there´s no chance a campsite could be set up on a beach these days. Some of the pitches for tents are on the beach itself with some shade from the looming cliffs.

There are 104 level pitches, some far nicer spots than others and there´s no swimming pool but with just a few steps to the beach, well that makes up for it.

All in all a nice, not quiet as the Spanish tend to be noisy, site. We´ll be going back, it´s in our top five small sites list. We don´t like big sites so don´t have a top big sites list!

But saying that one we visited recently and that´s Don Cactus, Motril has a high standard, over the norm care and attention and is across the road from the beach. Both hubby and I agreed we could make an exception to our small site mindset for this particular innovative site.
There´s nothing in the world quite like getting back to nature. Lying on the grass, watching the stars and listening to the sounds of nature.
