/ Costa Blanca.. Ware to stay close to the crags?
Two of us are booking a trip end of May. A couple of questions... Do we need a car to get about? Is there cheap self catering/ bed and breakfast close to the crags? We're both climbing in the 7s. Thanks!
Get yourself a car and make sure you check out Forada. Probably be a really good temperature for it at the end of May. Absolutely class crag.
We are staying at www.casaroc.com.
Stay in the 'dorm. Climb all day, party all night
A bus from Benidorm to Finestrat was 3 Euro, a taxi for the same journey was 16, but took a fraction of the time. Finestrat is a beautiful wee place with access to lots of trad and sport crags, but is pretty small, so not too much in the way of accommodation from what i saw, although i only spent a couple of hours there after Puig Campana. There are a few buses around the area, but they only run in the mornings and after 4.
Any one know the cheapest car hire company's
Out there. Also what is the best guide book. Thanks!
I used Centauro and had no problems.
Orange House is a good set up.
The newly published Rockfax Costa Blanca is the guide you want:
Enjoy it ...we had 26 degrees in January, so hope it isn't too scorching!
Thanks Mark :0)
End May from the 27th we are closed as got a school here taking all rooms.
Before then we are fine and I am surprised at the number of climbers here as the season should end by end April!
The new accommodation at the crag at Sella is not ready yet, next season we hope.

so not too much in the way of accommodation from what i saw
Finestrat Village has us (Orange House) a lovely B&B called Casa Figueretes, 2 posh hotels La Plantaction and Finca Fabiola, loads of self catering apartments so plenty of choice.
