Steve and I share a long term dream of living fulltime in our motorhome and travelling the world. There are 3 main reasons that we haven’t already taken steps to make this our reality. 1. Eddie, 2. Harry, 3. George. Our children are bright sociable young people who actually love school. Also, having spent much of 2020 in “home school hell”, I absolutely do not want to take full responsibility for their education!
But, during our trip around Spain and Portugal we spent a fantastic couple of days with Alex and Amy from the YouTube channel; KiteVanMan. In 2020 Alex found himself locked down with his gorgeous dog Sen in Morocco, he eventually escaped back to Spain where Amy joined him. For the majority of 2021 they have been living fulltime right on the beach in Southern Spain, but as the world has opened up again, they are planning to explore and share their adventures on their new channel With Alex & Amy.
We met up with Alex and Amy at Playa de Cala Sardina, one of Malaga’s loveliest beaches. There is a split level relatively flat carpark on the hill overlooking the beach, and it’s completely legal to wild camp on the top level. Obviously it’s not encouraged to set up a full pitch complete with awnings and sunloungers, but overnight parking, and sleeping are still completely legal here.
George absolutely maximised his time at the beach, playing, wave jumping, body boarding (though it was quite calm), and we all went snorkeling together. After a delicious meal at the beach restaurant we sat up chatting late into the night.
Playa de Cala Sardina is a fantastic beach stop, there are seasonal toilets and showers down on the beach, but I wouldn’t recommend camping there unless you are entirely self sufficient.
