Camping Sites

Visitors to Costa Blanca will find camping sites throughout the entire area from small inland villages to large coastal cities such as Benidorm, and although not officially legal camping can be enjoyed in secluded beach coves, next to picturesque lakes or in lush mountain valleys as long as you are not on private land or in built up areas. That being said, without fresh water, electricity and ablutions, camping rough has a limited appeal.

Costa Blanca Camping

As a whole, the majority of Costa Blanca's camping sites are fantastic and offer superb leisure and accommodation facilities, but due to the large space they occupy most are not in central locations but rather in residential or rural areas where land is a lot cheaper. Having said that, some camping and caravan sites are that large and boast so many facilities, visitors can spend their entire holiday without leaving the site.

Since the dawn of time, sitting around a campfire with a canopy of stars overhead in the company of family and friends has had a delicious appeal, especially for the young ones and gives us a connection with nature so lacking in modern day society. One of the biggest benefits of camping is the safe environment a campsite provides, with 24hr security, strict on-site speed limits and trained camp staff providing entertainment and an ever vigilant eye, camping is the perfect holiday choice for families looking for fun and relaxation.
