FREE CAMPING SPOTS IN NORTH/NORTH WEST SPAIN
JUNE 2005

Here is a selection of free camping places that we found suitable for
overnight stops on our recent tour of the Iberian Peninsular. We either
night stopped or had lunch/siesta in all of these places. We did the trip in
the first three weeks in June 2005.

We were very surprised by the very few motorhomes that were about at this time of the year. The Spanish were out in force at the weekends but mid week it was very quiet. The one exception was Cape Finisterre where there were several vans and many visitors.
Many nights we were camped by ourselves.

CAMPOSANCOS.
Parking at the ferry terminal. There is a very cheap (Euro 5.80) 15 minute
ferry from Caminna (Portugal) to Camposancos (Spain).

ALDAN HARBOUR.
Parking in harbour area.

CAPE CORRUBED.
Parking area around lighthouse.

PUNTA LOURA.
Parking by lighthouse, very remote area.

CAPE FINISTERRE.
Parking by lighthouse. Could be a problem in the wet. There is a large
tarmac car park on the right one kilometre before the lighthouse.

CAPE VILAN.
Parking in lighthouse car park, very remote.

CEDEIRA.
Parking in port car park.

SAN ANDRES DU TEIXIDO.
Parking in view point area over looking village.” Do not drive into village”


PORTO DE ESPASANTE.

PORTO DE BARES.

PORTO DO BARQUEIRO.

GONCHA DE ARTEDO.

TAZONES.
Very picturesque village/harbour. Parking in car park on approach to village

SAN VICENTE DE LA BARQUERA.
Parking on “Playas” at eastern end of town. Can be very crowded/noisy at
weekends and in July/August.

PLAYA OYANBRE.

SAUNCES.
Punta del Dichoso, parking in car park area.

QUEJO.

AJO.

DUESO.
Parking on rough ground behind sand dunes. Beware of patches of soft sand.

All of the above places can be found on Michelin maps 441 & 442.

A8 MOTORWAY.
The Spanish are slowly extending westwards the A8 motorway from the
French/Spanish border to La Coruna. It has presently reached the town of
Gijon. There is a 22 kilometre break just west of San Vicente de la Barquera It’s “Peage/Toll” from the border to Bilbao then the remainder is toll free. Service areas are few and far between the further west you travel.
