Rally Tips

This is one of our most popular rallies, as the Alicante region remains very sought after the campsite is first rate, and the area offers a winning combination of mountains, sea, countryside and historic cities. This is a large site, so bikes are recommended for getting around. In January and February particularly, the site tends to be in high demand, so early booking for your full intended stay is recommended. For a few days over New Year, any spare rally pitches may be offered to local campers or other non-ralliers, which can make for a very lively atmosphere.

Rally Date: 12 11 2018 - 22 04 2019

We recommend that you book your entire rally stay as early as possible.

Overview

The range, quality and scale of facilities of this award-winning site, plus the free activities, continues to wow Club members.

Marjal Costa Blanca is only a short drive from the coast, but benefits from a great countryside location, with easy access to and from the motorway from which some road noise may be heard. Many pitches have mountain views, a natural park popular among bird watchers is just nearby, and golf courses, cycle routes and the small town of Catral are all close too. Very carefully thought out, the large camping area is split into several zones, divided by wide access roads, with a central promenade with dropped kerbs at crossings. Ecology and access are the name of the game, with almost everywhere accessible to wheelchairs. Pitches are spacious and extremely well-equipped, with electricity, water, drainage, high speed fibre optic internet (pay) and TV connection. Wash blocks are superbly well-equipped, and each one also has a small, simple garden, with seats and a boules pitch, just outside. The spa (pay on site) is excellent, and our special member rates include access to the gym and indoor pools from Monday to Friday. Marjal Costa Blanca represents outstanding value for anyone who wants a high quality, very well-equipped site, with much to see and visit in the area - or, if you prefer, no need to leave the site. Members agree that both the site and the excellent service offered by its team are second to none in our Winter programme. Early booking for your full intended stay is highly advised.

This review is for Marjal Costa Blanca

Very well run rally with own rally room so lots of activities can take place, many of which are run by ralliers, depending on the interests of the ralliers there. Car hire really cheap so easy to get to the coast ans the shops. National park adjacent is a haven for bird lovers.

An excellent rally on a Five Star site in a relaxing area of Spain.

This review is for Marjal Costa Blanca

An excellent rally on a Five Star site in a relaxing area of Spain. The pitches are the best we have ever encountered and the facilities are the best! We have enjoyed a very social winter in very friendly company and have made lots of new friends. Many thanks go to the Stewards: Lynn and Bob, Janice and Peter and Lucy and Mark. You Guys were great! See you next Rally!

This is a big rally on a great site.

This review is for Marjal Costa Blanca

This is a big rally on a great site. The stewards, Bob & Lynn, Peter and Janice and Mark and Lucy, arranged a wide range of activities each day and almost every evening - no chance of getting bored here. In addition the site offers classes and use of the gym and pool. Lots to do and free to the rally. The local town, Catral, has a good selection of restaurants with more further afield e.g. Benijofar and Quesada. There are a number of excellent markets, The Zoco at San Miguel on a Sunday, Almoradi on a Saturday to name but two. The Stewards did an excellent job in particular Peter and Janice who kept things going right to the very end of the rally when fewer people were on site. The only downside to the site is its location which means having the use of a car is highly desirable. However, car hire is cheap to arrange. We would certainly recommend this site.
