    :BigGrin:We are looking for winter sites lower than Murcia (Almeria or Malaga way). We are booked into both Marjals and La Manga but we want to go a little bit south of there as well. The sites need to allow dogs and have easy access and large pitches as we are putting a trailer on the back. Any ideas anybody please?

    Pinar San Jose at Zahora near Barbate sounds good for you. Just up the Atlantic coast from Gibraltar. :thumb:

    Camping Roquetas , Almeria

    huge pitches, double in winter, welcome dogs..

    we stayed there winter 2006/07 with a 36ft RV + Trailer.. near the beach and local shops .. site has shop, bar and cafe .. pool closed in winter ..

    The Almeira coast has the best winter weather.. most sunshine.. least rain

    What? You were going to come down until you heard JAWS was coming? Don't blame you for changing your mind! I'm hoping he doesn't recognise us in our new van and caravan!:Wink::Wink::Wink::Wink:

    Yes we were coming till we read that.... but even though we miss you so much....:loveyou::hug:

    We just couldn`t stand a few weeks with him prattling on about how good "Honda Motorbikes" are... I offered to give him a ride on a proper bike.... A Harley Davidson.....:thumb:

    But he declined.... I dont think his little fat hairy legs were long enough to get his leg over... :Doh::thumb::Rofl1:

    Happy New Year to you and the Clan, Marie & Rex... :beer:

    spent 5 winters there NOT the prettiest of site but as Scotjimlad said close to facilities. there is a long walk along the prom to Roquetas and the other way to Aquadusla. Plenty of sand for the dogs to run along. Friends are there at mo

    There are more pitches with hard standing and not as many people here as usual so you may find an even better pitch :Wink::Wink::Wink:
