    Don't know that place but Peniscola, just south, is a charming "Spanish" resort. There's an aire and campsites.

    Last September we went to Salou and stayed in La Siesta

    http://www.campinglasiesta.es/

    As already said a lovely site in the centre of Salou easy walk to beach and a good local bus service,
    We took 2 days to go down and came back through Andora ( police and french customs stop most GB motorhomes and search every where know your allowances ) we stopped at aires in both directions and took 8 days to return. We would do it again tomorrow given half a chance.

    There are many camp sites in that area to choose from.

    All the best

    Was in Salou 3 weeks ago,parked on the prom opposite the beachbar at Cambrils.
    No problem as it was still early season.

    Wow. We had one night ( or was it 2 ? ) on the aire opposite the mega hotel at the end of town but it was enough to see how "unspoiled" it was. The place was where a good Spanish family would got to be untroubled by non Spanish riff-raff.
