- Peaceful site in the Sierra de Mariola Natural Park
- Near bike trails, medieval villages and hot air ballooning
- Pool surrounded by centurion olive trees
Fancy a restful break in sunny Alicante – but feel thoroughly tuckered at the thought of thousands of other tourists who’ve had the same idea? Holiday seekers in pursuit of peace, nature and a goodly supply of active options should give serious Spanish consideration to Camping Bungalows Mariola, right in the heart of the Sierra de Mariola Natural Park and surrounded by scenery so spectacular you’ll Ole! at the sight.
Several of the area’s mountain hikes and bike trails are within 10km of this peaceful campsite – la Font de Mariola, La Cava Blanca o Bolumini and La Cava Arquejada are all in the region – and there are heaps of other active opps within a reasonable distance; we rather fancy the hot air balloon rides across the mountains, gorges and medieval villages of the Sierra de Mariola…
You may of course – it is Alicante, after all – prefer to bask lizardlike in the sun and do nothing more active than occasionally dip your/the kids’ sunburned selves in the open air pool and paddling pool, surrounded by the olive trees which have grown here for over a century. (The pool is open daily in July and August, and on weekends from mid-June to mid-September.)
Camping Bungalows Mariola also has a pétanque court for gently competitive sunny afternoons, a multisports court for those who like to run around in hot weather, and a playground to pack the kids off to while the bigger folks concentrate on their tan. Once these are suitably topped up, sample some homemade local cuisine at the park restaurant, sample a sangria at the bar, or stock up on some (cooling) produce from the mini market for a peaceful picnic in the grounds. It all sounds rather relaxing...

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children on one pitch.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Follow the directions to Banyeres de Mariola on the CV-795 and go through the tunnel in Salt. Take the CV-794 and follow the signs for Bocairent and then for the campsite. We are located at the 9km mark.
Take the CV-794 and follow the signposts to Alcoy and then to the campsite. Use this road if you are travelling with a motorhome or touring caravan.
Hire a bike from the site staff and pedal off into the Sierra de Mariola mountain range for some stunning scenery: as well as the Font de Mariola, La Cava Blanca o Bolumini and La Cava Arquejada trails, the Alto del Montcabrer, Don Miguel, Nacimiento del Vilanopó and La Cova de la Sarsa are within 10km too, and all are suitable for travellers by foot as well as by wheel.
The Sierra de Mariola natural park was established in 2002 and has all sorts of heady activities including zip wiring and rock climbing for height-loving hedonists; horse-riding and paintballing are also in the area, and cavers come here and to the nearby nature reserve of Fort Roja to delve into hundreds of local nooks and crannies.
If this is all still a tad too active for an Alicante holiday, sit among the mountains and nature spot instead: Sierra de Mariola is well known for its flora and herbs: many of its 1200+ plant species have been used for centuries in local food and medicine and the park has the most southern yew tree forest in Europe. Wildlife watchers should spot several species among the mountains including wild boars, golden eagles, hawks, badgers and vultures, which were reintroduced to the park in 2002.
If you're hiking/biking, follow the disused railway line of the Alcoy Green Route, one of Spain’s nine Green Stations, from Sierra de Mariola to the small city of Alcoy about 15km away and a plate of bajogues farades on arrival.
Alcoy is probably best known for its ‘Moros y cristianos’ or Moors versus Christians festival each April around St George’s Day, which commemorates the battles of the Reconquista, but there’s a decent amount to see year-round: start off in the Plaza de España and walk to the medieval quarter for the Archaeological Museum, the old City Hall and a museum telling all about the Moors and Christians festivities.
