Earlier in the year we stopped at a campsite on the western outskirts of Almeria, in southern Spain - La Garrofa ( http://www.lagarrofa.com/ ) We had a pitch directly adjacent to (in fact almost on) the beach. It was a lovely cove and a stunning location. At night the lapping of the waves and the moon glinting on the water was amazing. An added bonus is the fact it is an ACSI discount site - we paid the princely sum of €16 euro (circa £13) a night with hook-up for the privilege .

Anyway, reflecting on how much we enjoyed it, my other half said - 'are there any other sites like that in Spain or France?'

So just interested in suggestions of any campsite gems on the coast by the water's edge?

Torre de la Mora, Tarragona. An ACSI site when we stayed June 2012. Not too far from Sitges and Barcelona.

IMG_2014091932486.jpg Camping Malvarrosa near Sagunto, Valencia, has pitches which back onto the beach. Not a lot in the area but the beach is good, it is just the other side of the trees in the picture above.

Plenty of aires on the French Atlantic coast that back onto a beach..
Two that come to mind are Capbreton and Mimizan Plage .. both sit behind sand dunes with direct access to miles of golden sands..

Newgale campsite, Pembrokeshire - a quick hop over the road to the pebble bank at the back of the beach.

In the Camargue to the East of Saintes-Maries de la Mer there's a long dusty track behind the beach where you'll find large numbers of MHs in summer. Also, further in that direction along the coast there's an aire which is actually on the beach - can't recall the name but it's on the CCI site.

Anglet aire is but a short walk from the Plage des Corsaires, and Biscarrosse-Plage aire is a slightly longer walk through the trees to the sea.

No shortage of camping fields backing onto Black Rock Sands in N Wales.

Amazing - what a brilliant set of suggestions.

We must have driven right past the entrance of Castillo de Banos in May, when travelling from Almeria to Malaga! Doh. :whistle:

It would be great if Snowbird could share with us exactly where the lovely pitches on the beach were taken - the third pic at least looks to me as though it was somewhere in the Cabo de Gata Natural Park?

Oh, and yes we know Newgale.

Thank you all ever so much - lots of places for us to explore there.

Do keep them coming...
