We are currently spending the winter in an apartment in Torre de la Horadada. Yesterday we took a stroll along the front to Mil Palmeras and spotted about a dozen motorhomes parked up in a large car park by the beach. Glynn got chatting to a Hymer owner who said the police were happy to allow them to stay as it was low season. As there is a petrol station only a few miles away with dumping facilities they said they just drove there every few days as needed. It’s a lovely spot with a great sea view so definitely good for at least an overnight stopover, I just hope no-one abuses it by being lazy and dumping their waste there.

Is this the spot?

I think that might be it, it looks much more developed there now with lots of new buildings and a lovely multi coloured brick promenade so I think it’s the parking area to the left of your picture.

That is the spot. It is the same location as the swim event I did last week.

It was very noticeable that some idiots had been emptying their toilet waste down the storm drain in the middle of the two carparks. I suspect the drain empties into the sea, right where the swimmers meet every weekend! :mad:

No doubt someone will put it up on Campercontact or Park4Night shortly, it'll get "oversubscribed" and the authorities will close it down - all because one or two can't behave responsibly.
