Most people are adhering to the rules. It is very quiet for August on Camposol but the port is very busy still especially weekends. I feel safer here than when we were in the UK 7 weeks ago. Businesses are struggling.

I need to get to my house asap but the simple answer is, nowhere is safe! I don't want the risk of going through airports and being confined in a plane at the moment so driving is possibly the safest way to travel. However, driving through France is a risk, no one knows from one day to the other if the borders will be closed and Spain could stop travel from one province to another. All very depressing, and the WHO reckon it'll be at least two year's before the world can get on top of it. Of course it doesn't help with the enormous amount of people who think it's all over! Some of the seaside resorts near to me in the UK are heaving with people and social distancing......what's that!

Quarantine on return doesn't bother me, no checks are made anyway, so it seems to be a political move. It annoys me that the government allowed millions into the country at the start of the pandemic

Good luck with your travel if you decide to go...stay safe everyone.

We flew from Gatwick 2 weeks ago and did not feel uneasy or threatened at all. Usually have a couple of beers beforehand but wanted to play safe so just bought a sandwich and water from Boots

Airport itself very quiet and most, if not all, were wearing masks and easy to social distance due to lack of numbers. Flight only half full and we cleaned everything ourselves with wipes

Easy to get out of Corvera but admit we were not tested for temperature where others were, so not consistent.

Been on Camposol now for just over 2 weeks and really only been out twice and both times to the golf club where it is easy to keep distance and open. Felt a little uncomfortable around the square when groups are drinking but overall everyone abiding by rules in the supermarket for example. Bit uncomfortable wearing the mask at all times but totally down to the heat

I already live in Spain (Alicante) so not a problem, just the local situation, I am reading 'Mazarronhoy' to keep up with fugures and Camposol and Puerto Mazarron seem to be clear.  So far!

Yes they do check.....I was checked in stanstead on arrival in July and checked in Alicante in August on my return home,  please don't assume "no one checks anyway"

I'm very pleased to hear you were checked, unfortunately the checks and tests are not always made. Stansted last week just told people to go home and quarantine. Flights from Ibiza and Italy were all mixed up in the arrivals hall with no checks made at all resulting in utter confusion with all those passengers. A month ago my friend was able to return from a very extended 4 month stay in Florida, arrived at Heathrow and just walked through unchecked and went home.

Until there is some consistency with testing at airports, and in my opinion they should be testing every arrival, I'll keep clear.

Random temperature check on arrival at Alicante the other day.
