After-summer in Spain: 5x motorhome stopovers by the water

In autumn, there are still plenty of sunny days in Spain. Ideal for a motorhome trip towards the land of sangria, tapas and traditional Flamenco. Enjoy an Indian summer on the beaches of Malaga, Alicante or Valencia. Take a refreshing dip in the sea, discover a new city or go for a nice walk. It's all possible in versatile Spain! For the ultimate holiday feeling, you naturally prefer to spend the night by the water with your motorhome. For this reason, we have listed 5 motorhome stopovers by the water for you.

1. Castillo Sohail, Fuengirola

Let's start with a beautiful motorhome stopover by the sea: Castillo Sohail in Fuengirola. Castillo Sohail is a simple motorhome stopover with no facilities, but the location is stunning. From your camperstop, you'll have stunning views of the sea and an ancient castle. A beach road takes you to the sea and Fuengirola's bustling promenade. Here you will find many boutiques and narrow streets with nice terraces! It is also just a 15-minute walk from the motorhome stopover to the train station. Ideal for a visit to the city of Malaga. Here you'll admire, among other things, the beautiful Alcazaba, a fortress built in the 11th century. The Gibralfaro castle is also highly recommended during your visit to the city of Malaga.

2. Area de Alcaidese Marina, La Línea de Concepción

The next motorhome stopover that is perfect for an after-summer in Spain is Area de Alcaidesa Marina. Here you park your motorhome in the marina of La Línea de Concepción. From the motorhome area, you look out over the water and see the boats sailing to and from the marina. There are toilets available and you have the option to discharge water and refuel here. Not only is the waterfront location stunning, from this Spanish town you can walk straight to Gibraltar. Before you can visit Gibraltar, though, you have to go through passport control. After all, without a passport you can't explore this British part of Spain. During your visit to Gibraltar, leave the Spanish tapas for a while and enjoy fish&chips. Gibraltar's biggest and most popular sight is also not to be missed. This is the Upper Rock nature reserve! Wild monkeys live here and with a bit of luck, you can see Morocco in the distance.
