The sun came out again so we cycled to the commercial centre to pick up some provisions, about one and a half kilometres from the campsite then cycled to the beach which is only about a kilometre from the campsite. We settled on the beach sheltering behind a hut only to discover it was a public convenience but it didn’t smell so we put out our chairs and enjoyed the sunshine.
Yesterday, we left the campsite at Gandia, which I have to say I would recommend and use again as it was very clean, close to all the amenities, beach, port, town and commercial centre.
We continued our journey south heading for one of our favourite beach camping spots that we discovered last year about 8 miles north of Denia, camping Rio Mar. Before we turned up at the campsite we drove into Denia to get the lay of the land as we had not explored south of the campsite before. We parked in Denia and walked along the port and marina, found some wonderful superyachts moored along the quayside, “Let it Be” owned by a Russian oilman and “Vive la Vie” owned by a Swiss entrepreneur, according to the internet. There is a large marina at Denia and from here you can also catch a ferry to the Balearic islands.
We stopped at a bar for some tapas and a beer and saved a stroll around the town and castle for another time.
We plan to stay at Rio Mar for 2/3 days whilst the weather is good up then probably continue our journey further south.
