We moved on to Cambrils staying at Camping Joan on the beach about 2 miles south of Cambrils and with easy walking and cycling access to Cambrils via the promenade and dedicated cycling path, a path that goes all the way to Salou, about 6-7 miles further north along the coast.
We’ve been taking it easy, cycling into Cambrils for coffee, a bit of shopping, sunbathing on the beach and by the pool, which I hasten to add is a good temperature, not half as cold as the swimming pool at Camping Eden. Cambrils has a really great atmosphere and a town we really like particularly along the seafront and harbour where there are plenty of restaurants and ice-cream parlours. We also like Camping Joan for the location, however there are lots of trees to negotiate when moving on and off your pitch, you really have to be very careful. There is a good supermarket and a lovely restaurant on the beachside of the campsite.
We cycled to Salou one day and stopped for a really good lunch at Bamboo, situated at northernmost end of Salou’s beach and promenade.
Salou has plenty of fountains along the tree lined promenade that runs between the beach and the main road that they switch on at night to put on a light show. Salou is bigger and more built up than Cambrils and It looked as if you could hire mobility bikes to get around in Salou.
Tony and Mick went off in search of a garage so that we could refill with LPG or Auto Gas and GLP as they call it over here as we had run really low and although we had been told about a garage just outside Peñiscola that had some, it wasn’t until we were on the N340 that Tony realised it was on the N340a! There used to be thousands of stations in Spain selling this type of gas but now this has diminished to only several hundred, making it quite difficult to get hold of but I can confirm that the Repsol Garage in Salou on the Autovia de Tarragon a Salou the C-318 does sell it!
We left Cambrils yesterday and are now at Camping Salata in Roses for at least the next 6 nights.
