Our drive towards Benicassim had taken us through the stunning Parque Natural de la Sierra de Irta and from there it was only a short drive to Camping Azahar which lies at the northern end of the town.
It was a busy site and we were allocated a spot (seems to be the protocol for many sites this year). The site is situated fairly close to a motorway so there was certain amount of traffic noise, but so much as to ruin our stay.
All facilities were very clean with excellent showers, a very clean pool and 80% coverage from the Wi-Fi (you have to get a code from reception to use it).
From Camping Azahar you have views of the surrounding hills and peaks as well as a very good walk along an old disused railway track which meanders down towards Benicassim and beyond or north towards Torreblanca between picturesque cutaways in the rocks.
Be prepared for the continual rush of cyclists who seem to have taken over the old track and bare in mind that it can be a treacherous place to walk your dog.
Camping Azahar is just 70m from the nearest beach and only 10 minutes walk into the centre of town where you’ll find cafés, restaurants and just about any shop to suit your needs.
At night the site is peaceful and I enjoyed one of the best sleeps in a long time.
Camping Azahar is a pleasant, friendly site with excellent facilities in a good location for access to walks, cycle adventures, beaches and local amenities.
