    Hi

    It's about 100 miles to El Saler which has a camperstop, nice and secure and a bus stop to valencia if that floats your boat but not much else.

    Hi Steve, we were in Pensicola earlier this year and cycled down the front to Benicarlo and right into Camping Algeria, right in just to be nosey, it looked fine lots of Brits and a big Boule thing going on most days from talking to some of the regulars who seemed friendly enough.

    OK on the approach road there is a massive Carrefour about 2 miles away also an Aldi and lots of other shops. Road to site a little tight so take care sights a tad tight too but I managed OK at just over 8mtr. Nice young girl checked us in €14.28 euro for the night no electric €2 for WiFi. Now I said oh I have ACSI card she said yes that's fine taps away on PC that be €16 so you can guess which option I paid. Pitch nice and wide with a tap and bowl for washing etc but not very long I'm overhanging a good few feet. Were at the front of site so through a gate across some scrubland your on beach. I turned right walked to Peniscola it was shut lol. Included in the camping price is free drink in bar we popped in pretty busy few locals and the long termers. Monday must be egg day everyone left with eggs we just had the one drink and left white wine was shiiiiite and the bar wasn't our thing to be fair. In morning I'll update you on facilitys.

    Now I keep staring at maps etc best way home or let's say Millau from here like to avoid tolls too. Is Andorra worth a stopover OK crossing the mountains there ?
    Cheers Paul

    Update showers toilets great best shower I have had this trip don't expect 5 star hotel but perfectly acceptable and clean. I was confused last night we walked to benicarlo not Penisacola sorry still closed though. Local told me no English bars in area but some nice places in town.

    Very hot today in no hurry to move IMG_20141118_111025.jpg IMG_20141118_111053.jpg

    Thanks on feedback, it all helps for the people (and me) who plan to visit in 2015...
    Good news on the new pitches, hopefully should be done ready for our rally....
