Wild camping in Malaga 

The romantic image of being parked on the beachfront and waking up to the sound of the waves is unfortunately very difficult to put into practice in Spain at the moment.

In fact, Spain is one of the European countries that sanction free camping the most.

However, there is a certain legal loophole. You can park your camper anywhere, eat and sleep inside it, as long as you do not take your belongings (tables, chairs, hanging clothes, etc.) outside.

Many municipalities also offer areas for ‘controlled camping’. They are very popular, especially if they are close to the sea. Most of them are either free of charge or only a nominal fee is charged.

Of course, obviously, these areas do not have any kind of electricity and water services.

Service Points for Motorhomes in Malaga

This inconvenience can be solved at petrol stations with additional services for motorhomes (Special Service Stations) such as waste disposal for the toilet and water connections. In this link you can find the service points for camper in Malaga.
