Today’s destination is Autocaravaning Park (https://autocaravaningparkroses.com/en) in The Bay of Roses. It is located in the northeast region of Spain on the Mediterranean Costa Brava.
We decided not to go on the toll roads but opt for a more scenic coastal drive. Even though according to our sat nav the distance was only forty miles it took us two hours. Hilly, winding roads and a few stops for pictures made it worthwhile.
When we arrived, there was a motorhome in front of us checking in. We had heard that it has a computerised (Passport security) check in system that is difficult to work out. Fortunately, there was a member of staff on duty who was more than happy to help. Angela read the instructions which were available in many languages and said they were easy to follow!
Be aware that you are only able to book for two nights at a time. You may extend but only in 48 hour periods. To use the water filling and emptying station, you need to purchase a ticket from the main check in system. Drive over to the station and then follow the instructions – very simple.
The site can accommodate large RVs too – the access in is easy and the site is very spacious so there is plenty of space to drive around – no low hanging trees or tight bends to navigate at all!
After we’d set up and had a brew I got our bikes off and put the panniers on. We went straight out and headed for the harbour along the lovely esplanade.
Once we had got our bearings we stopped off for a quick coffee before cycling to the Carrefour supermarket we passed on our way in. Mainly for cheese and wine for tonight.
We cycled back to site, locked the bikes away, had a nice shower then chilled out in the evening.
