After a lovely week in Lovran, we came out of Istria and moved further south to Senj.
When speaking to a German lady as we were booking out of the campsite she warned us that the bridge and road ahead was closed due to high winds and perhaps we should leave it for a few hours. As we needed a supermarket shop we did that and by the time we were back on the road the bridge was open again. Apparently, it is a regular thing as it can get very windy in that particular area.
As we approached the town of Senj and was admiring the view of the sea we noticed a tiny little campsite down below. There are no campsites in our ACSI book in this area so we thought we would try it out for one night. It turned out to be a really lovely spot right on the beach with a couple of restaurants/bars and just a short 5 minute walk into the small town of Senj.
We stayed there for 3 nights because the camping spot was so nice. Looking out from the front windows it looked like we were actually in the sea. It was a very relaxing spot to be. The only negative is that if it is really hot there is no shade. Travelling back there again this year (2018) we had to move on after 2 days as it was so hot. It’s a great stop off though and will definitely use it again.
The town is very small with several bars and restaurants. There is a castle perched up the hill a little way.
All along the coast road, there are little auto camps like this. Some are so small they look as if they are in someone’s back garden.
Travelling further south along this part of the coast is the most amazing scenery, it has been described as the most scenic coastal route in the world.
