    Yes..............ish!
    Right by the side of the N332 at Villa Joyosa (road noise at top end of site).
    Not stayed there but have visited a couple of times to check if suitable for my 27ft 5ver.
    Yes, it is but only certain spots down by the beach side at lower end of site.
    Looked a little scruffy last time I was there (admitedly 2 years ago) but would have done at a pinch as it's a reasonable distance from my folks place in Calpe.
    Only concern we had was that its a VERY noisy pebble beach adjacent the site which will either lull you to sleep or drive you absolutely bonkers all night!

    There used to be several sites going north towards Benidorm from Villajoyosa. A few years ago they decided to close them down and build apartments. The apartments are like ghost towns now and the small infrastructure that was there such as bread shops etc, have now gone. Unfortunately its happened all along the coast.

    It has, as my visit yesterday revealed.
    However, as its currently so packed that you'd be lucky to get an Eriba on it, look elsewhere.

    having looked one thing stands out like a sore thumb ..

    The place is certainly not cheap !!!

    With hook up charged at .45 € per unit, and most folk averaging around the 10 units per day region that equals around 135€ per month. So for a month the site will cost you 425 €

    For all I know that might be the norm for the area.. As we will proly be visiting that general area next year I am looking for a place myself that is reasonably priced.. 425€ is not really reasonable from my point of view ..

    Your looking for something that does not exist John. There are no campsites in or around Benidorm sub 425 Euros per month including electric. The best I can find is where I am at 450 per month with unlimited electric. Although Benidorm campsites are pricey compared with the rest of Spain, general living costs ie, food and drinks are much cheaper. A 3 course Chinese meal with wine around 5 Euros and a pint of beer 1 Euro only exists in Benidorm. For example, we went out for lunch yesterday at a hotel restaurant on the front line overlooking the beach had a 3 course menu including wine and followed by tea dancing to a live band. All for the princely sum of 10.5 Euros each.

    La Toretta, Benidorm, right on the Rincon next door to Benidorm palace. Our pitch next to Smudger who has a 100 metre by 80 metre pitch :Rofl1:.
    If you need wifi its unlimited and good enough to watch TV at 20 Euros per month extra :thumb:.
