    I am currently in Benicassim in Spain, just above Valencia on the map. There is a fiesta here starting on the 15th.Jan and ending on the 24th. Apparently it is not to be missed !!
    So !!!...where should I go next ??? I don't want to travel any further south. I am on a site at the moment but am not averse to wildcamping !!! Please help an old codger out !!!
    Many thanks....Stephen...:thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

    Hi.

    Have you been to Peniscola? Its a little North of you. The old town is super, on a little peninsula, and there is a long sea front where you can ride bikes. We stayed at Eden camping site, just near the sea - its OK but has some low trees which makes access to some pitches dificult, if you go there choose your pitch carefully. We have been told that there is an aire at the N end, but have not been to it.

    If you did decide to go further S, we like Javea (or Xabia) - camping Javea is OK and you can walk to either the port or the old town from the site. Quite a lot on english there (as everywhere on that coast).

    Just noticed you quote your address as Oxon Park, Shrewsbury - I thought that was a caravan park, are you fulltiming?

    We live about 5 miles south of Shrewsbury, where I am now looking out over the snow, feeling envious of you in Spain (we were there until the end of November)

    There are 2 aires between Pensiscola & Benicarlo, just follow the sea front road & where it leaves the sea for a short while you will find both.

    One sat nav co-ord. N.40.23.406 E0.24.604

    We left Benicasim and stayed at Playa D'Aro sea front, we stayed here going down for seven nights.
    Water on main road opposte police station but cant get van close, park in supermarket car park and empty toilet in bus station toilets if necessary. (motorhomecamping.co.uk)
    Not an aire but you can park near the beach near the marina follow Camping Vall D'Orr and go straight on. The police did not bother us.
