If you are thinking about Spain for your next trip, you should consider one of the many holiday parks in Spain – you won’t be disappointed!
The Spanish really know how to do a holiday (or caravan) park – they are often large parks with every facility on offer you can think of. Most Spanish parks are more akin to Haven or Park Holiday style resorts in the UK than a smaller campsite.
There are an estimated 1,000 official sites suitable for caravans in Spain. Prices are pretty much on par with the UK, starting at an average of 20 euros (£17.28) for two people per night depending on the facilities you’re looking for.
There are many top-rated holiday parks with aquaparks, outdoor swimming pools, family-friendly entertainment and a range of camping options including glamping with spas and hot tubs.
The widest range of holiday parks are to be found on the Costa Brava and the Costa Dorada and we’ve listed some of the top Spanish destinations.
