Found Wild Camping spot on Spanish website but New Big Sign says No Motorhomes. So we had to find our own. Drive into Santa Pola was ok but then the fun started. Signs for no bus or lorry and then the sea front is closed to traffic so you get sent round the back streets. Just outside the town by the sea. Found another spot on google earth for tomorrow. You can see the mh's

Spain seems to be a pain to go to in terms of wilding or even in some sort of paid aire....what is the attraction? Every post about Spain in just negative...is it bad or can someone educate the misinformed person like me. Sell me Spain and why I should go.

I travelled through these same back streets - it was a very tight fit in places and I didn't much enjoy it!

I've had a look on Google Earth but I cannot find the spot you mention. Let us know how you get on please ...

Woken up this morning at 6am with locals playing music sitting by their car with all the doors open. They even had the Staffordshire Bull Terrier to go with it plus a couple of beer bottles. We also had a Police Notice stuck to the door saying Motorhomes NOT Allowed although there were no signs.

Answer to Phil ( Admin )

Moved early this morning N38'11'52.93 W00'30'49.88 this is the road. If you follow it North away from Santa Pola there is a 90 degree bend and you can see 5 MH's. Parked next to a VW T5 so he will have a shock when he wakes up.

Off to find a Campsite ......

The camperstop just inland past the supermarkets off the N332 south of La Marina is good and fairly reasonable I remember.

I don't bother with La Marina anymore, pain in the ar+se.
A bit further south at Guardamar they tolerate MHs, loads of quiet side roads to stay in.
Also, north of Santa Pola, nearer Alicante, loads of places on the beach.

When we were at Santa Pola last autumn they closed the sea front road for a while, I presumed there was a festival going on. We went North of town and parked beside the sea. A while later the cops showed up and told us we couldn't stay there but that there was a place further north where the camper vans go. We drove about 3-4 km and stayed there for a couple of nights.
We had parked on the sea front before and a fellow motorhomer told us of a Dutch guy knocking on his door claiming to have had him flat broken into. His wife let him in the van and he tried to nick stuff from them. A few days later he tried the same thing on us but we just sent him on his way obviously.

This one is very near a really nice sandy beach with a small dog beach next to it. The Dutch guy who just lent me a 20ltr water carrier has been here two weeks already. It's a small road next to the filling station. Lift manhole for waste. Water at the garage for 1 Euro for 5 mins which is why we borrowed the extra container or you can walk to the beach with your containers. Lidl easy walk away as are bars / restaurants.

Don't listen to the harbingers of doom, there are 100s, prob 1000s of places to wild camp in Spain.
Keep off motorways & main roads, follow signs to playa (beach) & you could come across idyllic locations to stay.
I've just hugged the coast road north of Valencia & I've found a great place on the beach with toilets, water & bars.
So good, I think we might stay here for a few days.

keep your eyes open its been there for years .
but just keep following the coast . we like playa la llosa we park in the truck park.
not far from almenara but by the sea.

I believe that aire is dearer than a campsite.
