Oh my goodness, we found a Gem. We had planned (ha, as much as we ever do!!), to aim for Valencia and combine a city break with a seaside stop, but I couldn't seem to find "just the right thing". I expanded my search area and found Camping Malvarrosa de Corinto 30 miles up the coast to the north.
With over 13 years on the road we have learned to trust our instincts. Some times we pull up at a place, have a bit of a look around and pull away without really stopping. Sometimes we pull up and get a tingling... This place was the latter. The drive up to reception was quite tight, with trees and bushes narrowing the tight bends further. Rustic! Reception itself was quite rustic but they handed Steve a map with a couple of options on and within a few minutes we were on the site looking at potential pitches.
Two of the pitches we were offered were right on the beach front. Obviously we picked the one closest to the Tapas bar!!! The toilet block was fine, nothing spectacular, and there were a couple of washing machines too. BUT the facilities really aren't very important when the location is as amazing as this.
The beach was a mix of shingle and sand, the waves were absolutely perfect for bodyboarding and wave jumping. We spent the next 2 days splashing, and BBQing and drinking and relaxing and having a wonderful time. Oh, I also did the first load of washing of the trip.
On Friday night we took the HUGE walk (ha ha no more than 30m) to the Tapas bar. To celebrate 1 week on the road we ordered the daily specials with bread, salad and wine. They were delicious.
This is one of my own Top 5 sites, not for the facilities (they were perfectly adequate), but for the fabulous location.
