Wild Camping In Spain

I will be traveling all along the west coast of Spain and the into Marocco this autumn. Intend to wild camp all the way down but with a group in Marocco. I think filling up with water will be ok but what about the waste?

I think that you may have to use garage toilets, or carry a spade and dig deep and bury.:)

in spain look for manholes in rd should be marked santiemento ,dont put it in any others . in maroc dig deep .
becareful with drinking water in spain ,some as been contaminated by the sea in under ground cavens .and some is for watering the crops .but dont worry there is many places .we try a little first .maroc is getting harder ,as they get mains water all the taps in the streets and the wells are being done away with. still look hard and you will get it.
cheers alan.

heh, well it's quite good idea :)

I've found quite a good website - campgrounds spain (http://www.europe-camping-guide.com/en/list/spain/), you can find campings there.

Better to put it in manhole marked saneamiento if you put it in a SANTIemento you might have the Pope after you!

Very witty, just what you get from a saneamiento, or put into it!

I cannot agree with an earlier post, advising the digging of a hole. Apart from the fact that if spotted it gives wild/free camping the worst of names, in Spain the cops/environmental officials can do you for pollution particularly when carried out near a watercourse (which you may not have noted), same in most countries I know, but in Spain on the Costas they are looking for any excuse to clamp down on wild camping,

Arrived back from 8 weeks Morocco trip mid April. In the main a great time. No problems free camping in Spain except in the south near Gib.( Teachers/ BW whiskey 5/l!) Look for dams. Many have car parks. Also worth investing in Vicarious book of free camping in Spain & Portugal. Water - most garages will supply free, but be fair and put a drop of fuel in. Some will let you empty cassettes.
You will have been told that you cannot import alcohol into Morocco. True, but no body bothers about a reasonable amount not on show. Be sensible about it. Alcohol on sale in larger Majan supermarkets, but not cheap. You have to leave by the back door with the Moroccans!! If you are with an organised group you will be on regular campsites. Still don't trust the water. Its OK for washing and making tea etc. Use bottled water for drinking and teeth cleaning. Only coasts 80p/5 l from larger supermarkets. Invest in several bottles when you can. Toured Morocco on our own. No problems. Sorry to say some of the large organised groups were a nightmare, especially the French who still think that they own the country.

never mind ken he will learn.
by the way i have never had a problem with the quality of the water in morocco. i never buy it . certainly not in bottles . might give a few dirham to fill up the tank. just about ever house tin shack in morocco as good water now . even have a few desalination plants around . very interesting. for me anyway. as for booze most take hundreds of litre wine and beer into maroc . good for swapping or even bribing the police. but dont le them see the whiskey they never leave you alone if they do. you never know you might see lots of us from this site if you are lucky . mind if we see you coming we might hide . lots of fun in maroc but might give it a miss for awhile .stay in spain and portugal . can hassle the gnr and guardia for a laugh. have fun we do. cheers alan.
ps .got any brandy ken .i,m out .

Is there? I come back from Adenkerke with my load of fags and booze and never gave it another thought
I know that the Spanish only allow 200 fags between Gib and Spain. What are the limits between EU countires - any ideas?

gib is a bit different as its duty free . but even spain as a limit that you can carry in a vehicle without being called a trader . france as always been bas...... why do you think eastenders mini bus used to go the back way to verne.
tecnically there is no limit for personel use . only a guide line . there used to be. but that changed years ago. i miss france out now cant be bothered to give them my money . get caught anywhere along the west coast nd they get funny .so sail from spain . much easier.

Most campsites will allow you to empty your waste tanks and fill with water for about 4 euros much better than heaving a huge manhole out of the road!!
