Mijas opens its arms to caravans

ANGEL NOZAL, mayor of Mijas, said during a recent visit to La Cala that the area aimed to encourage caravanning as a way to beat seasonal slumps in tourism.

The mayor explained that the council intended to add a drinking water supply to facilities already in place on the so-called La Cala plain, where caravans and camper vans gather during the winter months.

Local policemen will be visiting on a daily basis to ensure visitors are happy and safe and are meeting regulations.

Nozal explained that although hotel and campsite tourism was of vital importance, caravanning visitors should not be overlooked as they often visited in the quieter winter months and helped provide income to local businesses.

An estimated 200,000 people choose caravanning holidays in Spain each year, and although 75 per cent of these are over 55, young couples and families are now getting into the habit as well.
