    Morning,

    We arrive in Bilbao at 07:15 on 16th August and head back to the UK from Santander in the evening of 27th August. We have two girls aged 8 and 3.
    I was going to book Playa Joyel in Noja (thanks @Chris ) for a couple of days when we got there so we could acclimatise and let the kids play in the pool, which they love! Unfortunately it is fully booked so we need an alternative.
    It seems the world, or at least Spain is out Oyster but I haven't got a clue where to go!?! I don't want to stress the family out by driving round aimlessly so has anyone got any recomendations on where to go or somewhere to head to? We would love to visit San Sebastian but other than that I've no idea where's good? The girls love swimming more than anything, so places with a pool or near the sea would be good, more relaxing than trekking.

    Thanks :)

    Just be aware how busy Spain is in August.. I think the whole of Spain go away for the month...
    We have a place in Benidorm and it's crammed, the only time all the apartments are in use..
    So plan ahead and get booked... Be aware there wont be any cheap prices.

    Good luck... Here is a link to some aires as a backup..

    We definitely agree with @tonka.

    We were in northern Spain this last August and it was rammed. We really struggled to get a pitch around the Picos mountains. We could not even get near to Cabaraceno.

    I suspect the coast would have been worse.

    But be aware that if you go south of the mountains it can get very warm. We had 38c one evening as we crossed Spain to go down to the Costa's.

    I think it may be a little too late tp help the OP. He posted in July, so I guess he is long since back from his trip.
