Caravan Sites in Spain Open All Year

Although there is nothing wrong with travelling to different parts of the UK in your caravan during the warmer and more agreeable times of the year. There is enough coast, beautiful green hills and much to see and do, why would you want to go elsewhere?

Well, when the temperature drops and the threat of ice and snow, not to mention the increase in ran, for winter. The UK, it’s fair to say, is a little less attractive, particularly when it comes to hitting the road with your touring caravan. It’s then you might consider going somewhere else. Somewhere like Spain.

Now, we are not suggesting mainland Spain is as hot during winter as it is during summer. For truly hot weather, even during winter, you need to look to the Spanish isles that lie close to the western coast of Africa. It’s just a whole lot warm and moderate than the average British winter. Especially if you head to the south of the country, as Alicante in the Costa Blanca often has temperatures between 8- and 17-degrees Celsius during December, while even Barcelona, in the north east of the country benefits from temperatures between 6- and 14-degrees Celsius.

So now you know why you might consider caravanning in Spain during winter, where could you go? Below we have highlighted 10 great caravan sites in Spain open all year. Yes, that includes during winter.

Camping Los Escullos, Paraje Los Escullos, Los Escullos, Nijar, Almeria, Spain, 04118

https://www.losesculloscabodegata.com/en/

Interestingly Almeria in Andalucía is the driest area of the entire continent of Europe and the only place that has a bona fide desert there. Many western movies have been filmed in the nearby Tabernas that’s jam-packed with cactus. This site is well placed in Nijar and gets around 328 days of full-on sunshine every year with moderate temperatures of 20-degrees Celsius.

The pitches at this excellent park all feature electric hook-up and Wi-Fi and the site itself has a full range of amenities such as:

  • Fitness Centre
  • Cycles for hire
  • Disabled features

Obviously, as Almeria is in the Andalusian region of the country, you are never too far away from fine beaches, including San Telmo and La Garrofa.

Camping A Grandella, N-634 KM 537,9, Valdepares, El Franco, Asturias, Spain, 33746

https://www.campingagrandella.com/

Based in Asturias, Camping A Grandella is a very friendly site just a short drive from the beautiful coastline. It is run by three seasoned campers, with 15 years under their collective belts running the park. The premise of the park is comfortable living while on the road and provides easy access to local sites of interest and attractions, as well as Porcia beach.

The pitch offered to caravanners is a hardstanding and grass type with the option of electric hook-up. You are also provided with a picnic table, which is a nice touch. The site, features the basic features you’d expect to find, including:

  • Clubhouse/bar
  • Disabled facilities
  • Food shop
  • Showers and toilets
  • Launderette

However, there is not a lot else. That’s okay, as they not only welcome dogs, but cats and various other pets too. In fact, on their website, they state just how much they love and encourage pets to stay there.

This is not a site you’d want to stay at 24/7, though. But, given the locale, that’s okay. The coast is calling and so is the sublimely beautiful Porcia Beach. Wait, though, there’s more. Why not walk to Viavelez, a local fishing village or Tapia de Casariego and its lighthouse.

Even inland there’s lots of treats in store, whether you want to visit the Oneta and Cioyo waterfalls or take a hike up the Coana Celtic hill fort.

Camping Santa Clara, Partida Cap Blanch 11, Altea, Alicante, Spain, 03590

https://www.campingsantaclaraaltea.com/

Another caravan and camping park based in the Alicante region, this time in Altea, Camping Santa Clara is a very calm and quiet park that gives you access to the gorgeous beaches of Costa Blanca and is only 11km from Benidorm. Its remote locations mean that even if you choose to visit at a busy time, you will never feel overwhelmed by Spain during the peak tourism season.

The pitch offered to caravanners, campers and motorhomes is the same – a gravel-based pitch with electric hook-up and Wi-Fi along with a picnic table. If you are looking for a fully functioning site with lots of amenities you’d probably be better looking elsewhere, as the offerings are sparse to say the least. However, that might appeal to you, and you still get:

  • Disabled facilities
  • Play area
  • Launderette
  • Wi-fi
  • Shower and toilets
  • Charging facilities
  • Chemical disposal

We still think this park deserves being highlighted and it does welcome families and dogs all year round. Besides, you are in Altea with more than 6km of coastline to explore with stretches of flat, but pristine beaches, small coves and cliffs. There is also a fishing port at the town, a yacht club and a marina, so you are never short of things to do.

Even if you want to stay on land, you can check out the local restaurants, bars, eateries and shops.

Camping Altomira, Carretera CV-213, km 1, Navajas, Castellón, Spain, 12470

https://www.campingaltomira.com/en/

Camping Altomira is the final selection in our guide. Situated within Valencia, it is placed close to Ojos Negros Greenway, which is the longest stretch of green in Spain. The caravan park has one style of pitch they offer to caravanners.

The gravel-style pitch comes with amenities such as water hook-up, electric hook-up and Wi-Fi. While the site offers a full range of basic and complimentary facilities such as:

  • Restaurant, bar/clubhouse and takeaway
  • Kids club and play area
  • TV room
  • Outdoor swimming pool
  • Cycles for hire
  • Baths, showers and toilet
  • Launderette and drying room
  • Disabled facilities
  • Food shop
  • Chemical disposal

Like all the sites in our guide, dogs and families are welcome throughout the year. Even though this site is well-equipped with a staggering array of awesome features, you will want to visit the local area outside its boundaries. For starters, you should check out the 160km Ojos Negros Greenway, or at least as much as you can manage. Along the way you will encounter reservoirs, foothills, rivers, 21 bridges and 20 tunnels as well as the full-on Mediterranean forest at Javalambre.

There’s also a 60m waterfall known by the name of Bride’s Jump and El Salto de la Novia that deserve your attention. Why not also take a trip to Navajas?

Final Notes

It should go without saying, if you are going to visit any of the above sites during winter, the swimming pools are not going to be accessible due to the lower temperatures. You could check out though, because even during winter the temperatures can be quite high.

We hope, wherever you go, that you have an enjoyable time and a nice departure from British caravan holidays. Although there are various places you can leave for Spain with a caravan in tow, if you are in the south or perhaps looking to take a long break, staying somewhere in the UK before heading across to Spain, you should also look at our page covering the caravan parks near Portsmouth ferry terminal.
