Bonterra Park, Bennicassim

Camping Eden, Peniscola

Free Camping 

  • Aranda del Duero – 1st stop on the journey south.  Located just south of Burgos (N41 40’13.4148 W3 41’36.384 – your sat-nav might try to get you to turn left down a narrow opening – DON’T DO IT!!  Keep going to the roundabout and you will see an ‘Area’ sign 🙂 )
  • Aranjuez – Decent stop by the river in a wonderful town just south of Madrid  N 40 2’38.976 W 3 36’9
  • La Guardia de Jaen – Beautiful stop up in the mountains immediately south of Jaen – we stayed 2 nights.  You need to approach from the north, particularly if you are in a larger motorhome – we’re 8.56m)                                N 37 44’33.4032  W 3 41’47.40436
  • Cala de Mijas, between Fuengirola and Cabopino. ( N 36.50619, W 4.68232
    N 36°30’22”, W 4°40’56”)
  • 5 minutes walk for a good night out 🙂
  • Free motorhome parking – NOTE: pop over to the police station to register (take your passports and vehicle documents with you – it takes about 5 mins and means you won’t be moved on…)
    • You then get 2 nights (we arrived on Tuesday and the police didn’t come around until the morning, so we registered on Wednesday and stayed until Friday)
  • Water (across the car park near the steps up to the road
  • Drainage and chemical waste dump (drain in front of the toilets)
  • The toilets are only open when the market is on (Wednesday and Saturday)
  • Will definitely return


  • Caleta de Velez – perfect (accept that you have to pay!) stop by a marina, with a good promenade and cycle path.  Again we stayed 2 nights                       N 36 44’54.2472  W -4 3’56.916
  • Camper Park Olivares – for visiting Cabo de Gata

Camping Indalo, Vera – strange site that would have been charming when first opened. I hated it when we first arrived, but we stayed 3 nights and for 13 Eu a night (including electric) I was happy enough!

Autocaravanas Home, Cartagena – Our 2nd choice but we were so happy our 1st choice had been full 🙂 2 areas (go round the back if you can). 1/2 mile to a bus-stop to take you into the city. Very friendly and helpful owner/manager.

Las Moreras, Alcossebre – What a wonderful find for 10 Eu per night (without electric – it is available for a few Euros more) Wonderful area and lots to see around and about. We stayed 3 nights in the end 🙂

Casa de Fusta, Deltebre
