    Does anyone know how busy this site is at this time of the year, indeed how busy from October on. I am just not sure whether it is worth booking to be sure of a place and paying the full rate or just arriving and paying the ASCI rate?

    If it's busy there is a small secure campsite on the Industrial Estate outside Marjal. It is behind the Mercadona and near the Iceland just of the N332. Good clean and roomy with toilets showers etc.

    It`s a popular site all year...

    Depending how big you are, the best plots on the perimeter roads, are always booked long in advance and are popular with the "Snowbirds"...

    I personally would book...

    Out of the two "Marjal" sites ... Guardamar & Catral.. (The inland one)... I would sooner stay at the coastal one... (Been to both)... so much more to do within walking distance, Beach, Pine Forest, Walks by the River, the town of Guardamar not far away...

    The three or four times we wintered there we booked... and glad we did, cos all the best and biggest plots were snapped up months in advance...

    There were a few plots last winter, because a few had pulled off and gone to the new site.... but I am given to understand they have drifted back... :thumb:

    Doesn't happen very often around here, I'd print it and frame it and put it in pride of place on your best wall.

    With one of those nice brass picture lights.

    If you want a nice quiet site, takes 4 vans, swimming pool, shower,toilet, Wifi, british tv.low cost lecci. around 300euros a month.

    Just outside Dolores. A bit of a bumpy road to get to it (may be recovered now)

    Can send details if your interested...

    If you do stay at Marjal, are you visiting Nancys..hehe. Also a british garage down the road from site which do british mots ect.
    And of couse a visit to "Jeans" for a very good cheap chinese meal.. 6 course, snappes,drink, and two bottles of wine for around 8 euros...

    Many other places to visit and see and spend your money..

    If you get stuck there is a lovely campsite in the village of La Marina just before Guardarmar, detailshere

    We live in La Marina and have been there several times to use the restaurant and gym.

    Thank you. Happy will be warm and dry. Well I think it will be because I've forgotten what it's like.

    And the same to you and all other FUNsters, may all your pitches be level, dry, sunny and with no polarity problems leading to fire and death.

    May your only gas problems be methane.

    May your locks be unbeatable except in the case of a fire caused by reverse polarity in which case they will open automatically.

    May your A-Frames be accepted everywhere and never set fire to your car.

    I know, I know. I'm always clicking my fingers and saying "now what's that old Arab saying ?" There's always some clever sod beats met to it. Ah well, story of my life. Maybe one day, maybe not.

    Then there's the other Arab saying "Oh shit, it must be a Christian detonator".
