Having been "moved on" by police I can confirm the above. We parked up to see if we liked the spot and made the mistake of hanging some smalls outside the van while we took the dog for a walk. The police came along and moved us. Some vans further away were left alone as they just looked "parked".

Lots of times we have been asleep in some isolated spot, that we thought no one would ever find, and we would hear a car pull up with engine idling and then it would pull away. A quick check, once or twice, would reveal the local police taking our licence number.

Hi, Stopped at a lovely place on the beach virtually, yesterday south of Alicante with a good dozen motorhomes from the usual different countries there. No problems and one police bike popped in and was seen chatting with a towed caravan owner but was gone in no time. No camping frowned behaviour seen as the beach was so close so everyone set up there.
Shall be interested when popping to the Thader centro, Murcia next week, to see if the usual goings on of ignoring the notices there will be the same,

We were told, by an ex pat, that the police only get strong if they get complaints. The complaints, apparently, mostly come from...... Ex pat owners of villas in the area. Our informant ran a bar and needed all the custom they could get.
