10 Essentials for a Camping Trip in Spain

As a beautiful country with many places to visit and have a good time, Spain is a special attraction for people all over the world. As celebrated for its culture as its wildlife, many people like to have their camping holidays in Spain. Only, there are many things one needs to keep in mind when travelling spain on your car. If you don’t know what they are, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Here are 10 camping essentials things you need when going to Spain.

 

  1. A good guidebook: Knowing all the best spots, local cuisines and the do’s and don’ts of your camping spot is important to have a good time. Having a good guidebook can help you with all of the above and even give you things you would otherwise miss out on.
  2. An adapter and a power bank: We all need our electronic devices fully charged and ready for any circumstance. When camping, you never know when anything could be handy. An adapter for any kind of plug point you can find and a power bank to keep your devices fully charged can help you through any power crisis.
  3. Use a camp stove: In general, camp fires are not allowed in Spain. It is considered as a risk to forests and trees. It’s better to carry your oven camp stove for any and all heating purposes.
  4. Keep it cool with a cooler: Carry a cooler with you in case things get a little too hot to handle. Try and find the collapsible kind so that it’s easier to carry.
  5. Stock up on bathing suits: When going camping there’s always a chance you’ll run into the odd river or pool where you can go for a swim. Don’t pass up the chance to have a little fun.
  6. Take some food with you: You never know when you might get hungry or if you’ll run into a part of the town where the shops are closed. Make sure you have some food and water handy.
  7. Make sure you know the local rules: The driving rules and camping rules in Spain are very rigid and some of them are exclusive to the country. It’s a good idea to read up on these before visiting.
  8. Ear plugs: Sleep easy with a pair of ear plugs. When camping, chances are there will be children around from other camps.
  9. Spare tyre: Have a spare tyre ready at all times. Keep one that’s tough and able to deal with many of the off-road terrain you will encounter in Spain.
  10. Find places where the crowd is less: To truly enjoy your camping experience find a place where the tourists are less, especially in the coastal parts of Spain, where you can find some great places if you search well enough.
