    We are heading through there on Thursday, (currently in Peniscola,) there seems to be a dozen or more sites just to South of the town. Weather permitting we will have a look, 'cause at the moment the weather is NOT good:cry:

    We went back last year to a campsite we stayed at some 30 years ago, on a cheapo Club Cantabrica coach holiday! The site, Camping Blanes, was still there and largely unchanged - sadly no longer having direct beach access as the town had expanded, and there is now a concrete promenade running from the town and behind the site. It was a nice enough place still, mostly Dutch and a few English. Walking distance to town, decent bar, facilities and shop. Suspect the other sites will be similar, perhaps a different 'ethnic mix' as some sites are preferred by tour operators.

    We stayed at Camping La Masia
    Carrer Cristòfor Colon, Blanes
    http://www.campinglamasia.com/uk/campsite.html

    The pitch we had was hardstanding and quite close to neighbours but didn’t cause a problem. However, I would think that the site would be noisy at weekends. It wasn’t cheap – I think we paid 26 euros per night – but we were only there for a couple of nights. It was the location that we liked. Just a short walk from the main street and from the beach.

    Stayed in Blane's last week, it was a camping Cheqe site so worked out 16 euro, handy though not direct to the beach, facities were spotless, and staff very pleasant, when Ed gets in I will put the name and details on, oh and it was very warm and sunny, :Smile:

    Hi Mel, it's the one Rob and Val gave the link to, it was week end and quiet when we were are not many of the static's been used. Pools were shut though. You can get into Barcelona quite handy from there, the bus station is a short walk from the site, which runs to the train station and then the train into Barcelona .

    Ed says the best cake shop he has seen was there, reason enough for him to go back. :RollEyes: lol.

    We have stayed at both camping Blanes 15.50 € per night direct access to promenade but quite shady. La masia is much bigger and more expensive but more facilities

    Be very careful in Blanes please.

    We went there for a family holiday in 1955.

    We were the only English family in the town.

    I was eight and was hit by a man on a motorbike when I crossed the road...

    I had done the "look right, look left, look right again stuff but he was on the wrong side of the road.

    You have been warned.

    JJ :Cool:

    I would think that in the 59 years since that happened you'd now need to be a damn sight more careful crossing any road - Spain or not!! :Rofl1:

    On our way down to Barcelone and wonder if there are other sites (ASCI) with easy access into the city.

    Also wanting to overnight at Figueres or again somewhere with easy access to the museum.

    Any pointers gratefully received
