Brilliant overnighter. Flat parking and access to great walking along a packed sand road. Get up early and be among the first into the Muella de las Carabelas as its quite awesome having the place almost to yourself (and much better pictures). A short walk up the hill to the monastry is not to be missed.

Super quiet overnight with only two other vans/motorhomes (might be different in summer).

No sevices or shops in walking disatance so come fully prepared.

Only negative is there seems to be a fair bit of rubbish but hard to tell if this is brought in by the weather or not.

Great location for a stopover to see the monastrey and the columbus exposition which is well worth visiting A couple of good restaurants within walking distance. As for the site dirtiest have seen so far in five months in Europe. And not from Motorhomers. We saw three cars turn up and people just dumping their household rubbish. Or changing drivers blowing their noses and just throwing their tissues in the floor. Very weird. Other than that safe as police came round at least four times in the night with search lights. Not sure exactly what they were looking for...

loving it. great cycle into lovely town this morning, only 2 miles along the path between delta and strawberry plants. interesting links to the voyage to America.

plenty to do on site with the Columbus exhibition, botanical gardens and monastery. couple of cafes but didn't use them.

felt very safe. police drive through periodically. can be noisy at night with the goods train and port but didn't keep us awake

Great stop to overnight and visit all things Columbus! Plenty of room for the largest of motorhomes. Easy walk to ships/monastery/botanical gardens. No services so come full/empty! Spent a quiet 2 nights here albeit with a constant drone from the nearby port.

Very pleasant and generally very quiet night and day. There can be some noise overnight from the big boats but this only occurred on one night out of our 3. Makes a good base to explore local places and there will always be room to park.

Great stop over for a couple of nights, OK you drive past some large industrial sites & there is the odd smell which drifts across from them but the stop is well worth it. Police drove past a couple of times, there were 6 vans overnight which was very quiet. The Columbus Caravels are well worth a visit you can go on board all three and the video shown in the educational centre is really good. There is also a large botanical gardens which are free to visit and very pleasant to walk round. Climb up to the top of the hill to the Monastery of La Rabida where Columbus spent a year while he raised interest and money for his trip, this is a lovely place to walk round & good value at €3 admission.

Superb site, well worth visiting the amazing exhibition centre for the Columbus replica boats. €1.5 for older folk.

Park at far end of the massive car park on flat gravel between the small trees. Perfectly safe, quiet site, overnight sleeping no problem. No services

Ignore cords posted by earlier visitor. Level parking between newly planted pines. Asked by police to move away for a few hours by 10am because of a cycling event at the car park. Plenty of other places to stay in the meantime. Quiet at night except humming from port across river. Early visit to ship museum recommended to get pictures without other people in the shot. Worth a stop over.

Fully agree with the previous comments of Lord Stretton. This is an oasis in what is predominantly flat marshland and commercial/industrial areas. It is a must see place to visit and the hours flashed by when viewing the ships and the centre. Felt safe in the car park with several other motorhomes. The police drove through regularly which was also reassuring.

Good location to spend a night. Enough to look at to keep busy for a few hours to an afternoon depending if you go to see Colombus’s ships at €3.60 pp
There is lots of space and there are public toilets by the monastery and plenty of bins available.
Also a lot of mosquitoes!
