    Here we are in Spain, privileged to be parked up in a beautiful beach location for free, with the local police forces blessing. What could possibly be wrong - some scumbag has emptied their cassette right on the water line, nearly stepped into it this morning. :madder::madder:

    There is an enterprising garage owner just a few K away that lets you empty and fill up for just €1.50 a time. Worse comes to the worse, take a shovel and go into the scrub and bury it, but to leave it right on the waterline, unfortunately too high for it to actually get washed away. The beach was full of kids yesterday being a Sunday, thank goodness they are all back at school today.

    IMO it looks more like a camping site than a beautiful beach!

    I'm afraid it's these people who are going to spoil it for everyone else. This sort of wild camping is being discussed by the authorities in some regions and it will be banned for all.

    We avoided visiting Roquetta Del Mar (near Almerimar) when we were in Spain as we'd been told that the German MH owners who were wild camping on the sea front were emptying their toilet cassettes into the rain water drains on the side of the road - a health hazard if ever there was one

    They were possibly afraid of loosing their prime parking spot if they had moved to empty it. Their must be tons of waste in all those vans the place must be a quagmire smelling like a sewerage treatment plant. If you were to speak to any of them they would all say it was disposed of properly. Yeah ok.....

    What a shame some people think that's acceptable and spoil it for everyone else.

    It does look lovely there in spite of that happening, very envious.

    There must be 40 odd vans there. At what point does it change from a nice wild camping spot to an impromptu unofficial campsite?

    @vwalan did mention recently the sea can get smelly there, now we know why.

    I'm surprised some enterprising soul doesn't equip a truck with water and waste tanks and go round these spots, providing a mobile servicing service. They could collect bin bags as well.

    It looked very empty when you where there DBK.

    It's a perfect location for us as there are more mountain bike trails than you can shake a stick at and we can get the kayaks out too.

    No Buttons, it does not smell like a sewer, there is very little evidence of people emptying cassette in the scrub area, I think most are using the facilities a short drive away. People are driving off and coming back a couple of hours later, probably done the shopping as well. Some leave their chairs or levellers to keep their spot and some just part somewhere else.

    Believe me if I has seen the culprits I would have taken their reg number and called the police.
