Van Secrets

Sea-view dining, sleeping to the sound of the waves and beachside accommodation neednīt cost the earth. Van Secrets is a new online platform that lets you discover the best kept secrets for those who travel in caravans, sharing amazing camping spots for anyone who likes to spend the night on the road. It is kind of Google Maps, but with the best spots to make a stop with a caravan. There are three types of spots, indicated on the map in three different colors: the green icon represents the free spots where parking is allowed; the yellow icon represents the paid spots where parking is allowed; and the red icon (which for some may be the most appealing) represents the spots where parking is not at all allowed, but which may be worth it for the site itself - are the so-called "wild spots". Then there are also the purple icons (with public WC indication) and the blue ones (for showers open to everyone). The only problem is deciding where to stop.
