Our Favourite European Beaches For Your Next Road Trip
Europe has some absolutely stunning beaches to choose from for your next international caravan road trip. Whether it be France, Germany, Italy, Portugal or Spain, there are so many European destinations that have incredible beaches and make the perfect place for a caravanning break. But with so many options, where should you go?
At My Wobble Box, we have only just been able to whittle it down to five fantastic beaches out of hundreds of others! However, we believe that these select few make for an amazing European beach break, whichever one you will decide on.
Praia de Dona Ana, Algarve, Portugal
To start the list off right, why not take a caravan trip to Lagos and visit Portugal’s Praia de Dona Ana – one of the most picturesque beaches in all of the Algarve? This calm and relaxing seaside area is popular among families and perfect for caravanners looking to enjoy the incredibly warm weather that the Algarve is so well-known for!
If you are looking to set up here for a few weeks, then bring along a British Recycled Wool Walker Companion Picnic Rug. A picnic on Praia de Dona Ana is nothing short of amazing! Imagine taking a leisurely swim nearby only to come back to this beautiful picnic rug and have sandwiches, refreshing drinks, and tasty nibbles – perfection!
La Concha Beach, San Sebastián, Spain
Next up on the list is Spain’s very own La Concha Beach, based in the lovely resort town of San Sebastián. La Concha is vastly rich in history and known as one of the brightest jewels in the San Sebastián crown, making it a popular destination among locals and tourists alike. Caravanners will be overjoyed by the beach’s sheer beauty.
There are plenty of lovely cafes and restaurants in the area, but if you’re planning on taking your lunch with you, then our Caravan Lunch Bag is a must-have! Adorned with cheery caravan imagery and the sweet quote “Home Is Where You Park It”, you’ll be able to keep your lunch cool and fresh in this insulated bag! It does get really warm there!
Sellin Beach, Rügen, Germany
Although not incredibly famous like the Mediterranean beaches found in either Spain or Portugal, Germany does actually have the lovely Sellin Beach, which is based on Rügen island. Sellin Beach itself is famous for its beautiful pier and sandy stretch of land. Caravanners and campervanners can leave their wobble boxes beside the road or in a public parking place while they explore.
With our Volkswagen VW Deluxe Camping Chair, you’ll fit right in with the locals considering Volkswagen is a German company! So take this with you to the beach and sit back enjoying the view of the baltic seaside. Super comfy, durable, and reliable – this camping chair is perfect for caravanning beach breaks or campervan beach holidays!
Plage du Lavandou, Paca, France
In France, the central beach of Plage du Lavandou is popular during the summer months. Found within the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur (Paca), Plage du Lavandou has a long stretch of gently sloping golden sand where children can swim safely without losing their footing. By taking your road trip to this beautiful beach, you are sure to have a wonderful time!
It’s wise to take protection from the sun, such as sunscreen, hats, and sunglasses. But it’s even wiser to take a VW Ocean Beach Parasol or two just in case of extreme weather. A shower could easily ruin your day in the sun, but so can extreme heat. So make sure you are completely protected from both weather conditions.
Tropea Beach, Calabria, Italy
Finally, we have Tropea Beach in Calabria – based on the toe of Italy’s boot. Tropea Beach has glistening white sands that gently spill into the glittering blue waters of the sea beyond it. Surrounded by large cliffs and featuring great views wherever you go, Tropea Beach is one of the most idyllic beaches that all campervanners and caravanners should visit.
Why not set up a VW Ocean Beach Shelter while you’re there? This will allow you to grab some protection from the sun or breeze on Tropea Beach. Considering it’s also caravan-themed, this beach shelter is perfect for any caravan owner and can become a staple part of all future trips!
At My Wobble Box, we have so many products on offer to aid you throughout your summer holidays spent campervanning up and down Europe! We have searched far and wide for the best products out there for you. Head to our website to see how we can make your caravanning trips that little bit better!
