    Can't recommend a campsite, but Cantabria is wonderful with beautiful beaches, mountains etc.

    Wild camping is pretty much accepted in Northern spain unless the landowner specifically says no camping via a sign. We wild camped for a week in some hay bails Last year!

    Honddaribia, right at the doorstep of some good riding. Nice town too.

    Mundaka, on the Gernika estuary. Again, good biking and nice town. More for surfers though. (the longest left-break in world, whatever that means)

    Sopelana, near the cliffs, there's a good singletrack ride next to i. (it's my local ride). There's a metro for Bilbao too.

    Plentzia, bit further along from Sopelana, nicer town and the beach is excellent.

    Inland, Potes, there's a few and you've got the Picos de Europa to ride in.

    Gijon, basic, does the job, it's a nice town too. Right on the cliff tops.

    That's just the ones i've been to.

    As for the wild caming, reckon the poster was lucky, as it's definitely not accepted. (police rapping on tent teling you to move on type of thing)

    oh, and you can camp in my garden if you want.

    Thinking of a trip to Northern spain next year after a week in the alps. Can anyone recommend some camp spots close to the beach. Biking would be nice as well but after a week in Morzine the kids will deserve the beach thing.

    Hondarribia rocks. The camp sites are:

    Closer to town. Bit of a walk still but not too far.

    http://www.campingseuskadi.com/faro/presentacion_0.html
    Further from town. Has a few restaurants round there, some are dodgy but some look OK.

    Hondarribia is cool. Great nightlife, nice bars and restaurants. Right on the sea and has a regular 5 minute ferry running to Hendaye (France) which has a 2km sandy beach.

    You are also within a short ride / drive of some great biking (ahem, I had to say that didn't I!!!).

    Having said that Mackem's garden would be a good option, apart from the crazy dog!

    Hey Doug, that's not a nice thing to say about Dawn.

    wow guys that looks great. Really appreciate the offer Mackem and Doug your rides look excellent, might even be a chance of convincing the guys to go there rather than Morzine.

    I'll keep hold of this post and be in touch.

    Thanks again for the help

    Doug has been shy about advertising himself, so i'll do it.

    certainly if you've been to Morzine, give it a go, some damn good riding in the Basque country and Northern Spain in general.

    Thanks for that Mackem! There are a pile of recent pics up on our flickr site as well if you want a look and just give me a shout if I give you any other information!
