I wouldn't advise the day camp on the Burriana beach if you want them to learn Spanish, there are always some German, English, Swedish and Spanish kids in the camp but they seem to all stick together talking in their own language.

I'll also be there..
Just to add the website info regarding the start times is wrong.
The 10 km start is 10.30 then the wheelchair access and 5km is 11.30.

My kids clothing comes from either of these 3 shops:

Dunes Store
El Corte Ingles (when the sales are on)

I have bought clothes from the big supermarkets like Carrefour and Eroski but the quality is very poor.
