Additional information about La Tomatina, Spain’s famous tomato fight. To book your camping or hotel trip with Stoke Travel, head over to the La Tomatina page.

LA TOMATINA ACCOMMODATION

As we’re pretty accommodating folk and want your tomato throwing experience to be as stress-free as possible, we can pre-erect tents, blow up mattresses and roll out sleeping bags ready for your arrival. Our kitchen crew are there to cook up a culinary storm each morning and every second evening so your stomachs are lined for the weekend’s drinking and antics, including a world-class paella the night before the fight. And as always, we’ll be hosting the best and biggest party outside of the party, and you’re all invited. There is a pool, bar and restaurant on site, and we’re less than five minutes walk from the beach. The Stoke Travel crew are expert tomato throwers and even better at having fun, and our campsite parties are legendary. Join in as much fun as humanly possible with open-minded international friends at La Tomatina Festival.

Camping not your style? Stoke have got you covered with our new hotel package. Enjoy the comforts of a bed and private shower but still be a part of the Stoke Travel antics.

LA TOMATINA TOURS

Stoke Travel’s campsite is open from the 27th of August until the 31st. For your La Tomatina trip you can stay for the whole time, or for a minimum of two nights.

LA TOMATINA INFORMATION

When: Stoke Travel’s La Tomatina camp is open from the 27th – 31st August. The festival is on the morning of the 29th August and begins with the crowd trying to climb a greasy pole and claim the ham at the top. Once the ham is secured the Tomato Fight starts, which is usually around 10am on the 29th August and lasts for two hours. The Water and Wine Fight is the night of the 28th and the official La Tomatina After Party is on the night of the 29th.
Where: Valencia, Spain’s third largest city, about 3.5 hours south of Barcelona. The Stoke Travel beachside camp is located in Puçol, to the city’s north, and the tomato fight is in Buñol, in the hills behind the city.
How: Valencia is serviced by most budget airlines, Spain’s national rail service, and many coach companies. Stoke Travel also operates private coaches from and returning to Barcelona city centre.

WATER AND WINE FIGHT | 28TH AUGUST

The night before La Tomatina Festival 2018, you can head to the Water & wine fight in Requeña and it won’t break the bank at €20 for the transport. We go there, we lurk about in the streets drinking and chilling with the locals. You have the option to go into a fake bullfight (meaning no cute, little bulls get killed) – the bracelets are available there so you can just get ’em on arrival. Later, we all head through the streets lead by a brass band and the locals go nuts with wine and water and general frivolity… and so do we. Take a cup with you to drink deeply of the spoils of this cultural, calamitous water and wine war.
