    Good morning all.

    Just wondered if anyone knew of any campsites in southern Spain (south of Valencia) where they have dishes one can connect to. A couple of sites in Alan Rogers are mentioned as having them, but one I know of when you get there it is actually just Spanish digital. We of course would have our own sky box with us.

    Many thanks!

    Is that camping Bahia de La Plata? I notice it says TV/SAT Antenna on the website but was pretty sure that was only Spanish digital?? Have you been there before?

    Spanish sites with UK TV

    Hi. Camping Almafra, which is close to Benidorm definitely has UK TV. Take a coax with a sky type connector at the plugging in end. El Raco is supposed to have and I will know when I get there in the New Year. Additionally, Vilajoyosa apparently has BBC but I don't know about ITV etc.
    Every campsite I've emailed have answered any queries so you could try emailing a few sites you may fancy. Have a lovely time there. We are off to La Manga next month so am hoping the weather is better this Christmas than
    when we last went away at Christmas a couple of years ago. Scrapjack

    Thanks Scrapjack and Salopian

    I will check those out, we live in Mojacar but always go away in the "van" for Xmas, last year we were lucky that we had a neighbour who let us hook up to their big dish in Torremolinos, this year we fancy going north of where we live.

    Weather is good at the moment here in southern Spain so let's hope it holds out for Xmas. We have been to La Manga camping a few times and it is a very well run site.

    Salopian, not sure if you have been to Zahora before but the coastline is stunning, we usually head down that way for a break in May.:thumb:

    We live in Calpe on the Costa Blanca and need a 2.4metre dish, as far as I know the biggest available, to get UK TV. At the moment the atmospherics are upsetting the signal a bit so if you want to catch a critical part of your favourite soap or the last episode of Downton Abbey I'd advise setting the DVD recorder before you leave home!

    Raco Benidorm

    Hi Scrap Jack and United Girl,

    We've been spending winters or part winters on Raco for the past 9 winters and we expect to stay here untill at least untill the new year unless the weather turns pear shaped and its better elsewhere in Spain.

    the tv conections on here are the ordinary tv conectors not satalite and you need a male connector on one end and female on the other but its no big deal if you hav'nt got one the camp shop sell every thing you need, or the local chinese shops have everything and they're usually cheaper.
    Internet on the camp is 29 euros for 30 days I hope this is helpfull to any one thinking of Beni for he winter

    Thanks Alan

    The wifi info is certainly helpful too.

    We usually carry every type of cable under the sun so we should be able to connect to the TV, any other channels we can Sky + for when we get home.

    Do you recommend booking a plot? We will problably be there for 2 or 3 weeks from around 15th Dec. Or in fact as we live only about 2 hours away we may come up the weekend before to settle in and then drive home for work for a few days then back, hmm I can feel a plan coming on.

    One last thing (sorry - you will be asking for commission soon!) I take it dogs are allowed there?

    Hope to bump into you over the festive period.

    Raco

    I personally wouldn't book but that's up to you,I think that they expect you to pay from the time you book as they had so many probs with people not turning up.It does get very busy but you can usually get a pitch ,when it's nearer the time I can let you know how many are vacant.
    They accept dogs we have 2 and they don't charge extra for them but you will find the best prices are for 31 days.
    Hope this helps from a rainy Benidorm
    Alan
