Our favourite site in Spain

We've been four times now and will go back. The site is right next to a wonderful beach, where dogs are tolerated. All the facilities are good but the new shower/toilet block is excellent. Reception is very helpful and they speak excellent English.

 

They have a lovely pool for chilling round and also a hairdresser and therapist. We both had our hair cut there and were very pleased. I've had a couple of hot stone massages which were divine. We really enjoyed sitting up in the bar/restaurant, overlooking the beach and marina and enjoying an afternoon drink. The food in the restaurant is only average. If you want a better meal you have a choice of restaurants in Oliva or right next door to the site is Casa Juanmi a real gem, where you can get great food. You do need to book.

 

We really enjoyed a walk or a leisurely cycle up to the restaurant in the marina. There is a barrier in place but it's fine to take the walk through and carry on up to the restaurant. This place is very Spanish but the food is good. We also liked coming here for a morning coffee. You sit next to their pool, overlooking the sea. Bliss.

 

There is a small supermarket on site but this is just for basics. There are plenty of shops in Oliva, including a new Lidl and a Mercadona. Market day is Friday and is definitely worth a visit. It's not a tourist market although gifts etc., are on sale. Many of the stalls have an excellent choice of fresh fruit, salads and vegetables. There is also a fixed market, open daily, which sells fish and meat. The square in Oliva is a great place to sit with the locals and enjoy a morning coffee or a freshly squeezed orange juice. If you cycle the opposite way from Oliva, and follow the direction of the beach, there are bars and cafes to choose from and every time we go, we find somewhere new. As my title says, this is our favourite site in Spain.

Dogs tolerated, does this just mean the law against dogs on beaches is not enforced?

I suppose it does mean that.  There are many people who stay at Kiko with dogs and take them on the beach.  No one objects and a local even told us that the tourist office sends dog owners here.  I've never seen any dog mess on the beach, which is great news.

 

We tend to take our dog on the beach when it's not too busy, either in the morning or late afternoon.

 

There are quite a number of dog friendly beaches in Spain now.
