    The beaches are indeed lovely around El Cotillo but caravans block access to the beaches and people even sleep for weeks on the beach with no intervention by the authorities. It is one thing that spoils the place.

      Yes they are a pain. The police did start moving them on but that was short lived. They really need to provide some designated motorhome sites.
