    I'm going to travel from North West Spain to Cadiz via Portugal in September. Anyone know of any good campsites on the west coast of Portugal about half way down?

    Sites in Portugal

    Hi Tamsdad

    There are sites available, look at www.orbitur.pt........they have a chain of sites, most open all year, provide a good standard and good security.:RollEyes:

    You could also look at Camping Card ACSI 2009, available from www.VicariousBooks.co.uk...this provides another option, with fixed prices especially for short stays.:Smile:

    I'm not 100% sure on the orbitur site address, you may have to "google" orbiturcamping to get the home page.:Cool:

    Hope this helps, and have a good trip.:thumb:

    We only stopped on one campsite in Portugal - Camping Municipal do Alcácer do Sal, this is just south of Lisbon so it's a bit further down than halfway. It was about 7.45 euros a night with electric hook up. Really nice friendly site, somebody said it was featured in one of the motorcaravn mags. There was a washing machine & dryer to use for a small charge, they also had a free internet but it was a wired connection (must remember to take a network cable next time)

    We wildcamped the rest of the time & found loads of places to stop :BigGrin: found the Portugese very friendly.

    Stopping in Portugal

    Totally agree, & we also used the aires that you can find in Portugal. Same as the French ones mostly with water & dump & some with electric. Go to our blog (Red lettering below) to see more of where we went

    Don't forget the 'Barragems' of Portugal, lakes with dams to you & me. Many have large parking areas you can stop at. (See photo below)

    Vicarious books publish a book of all the aires of Spain & Portugal (2 photos below) & including LPG stations.

    If when you get there try to get the Roteior camp site book, lists all the camp sites in Portugal & opening times. You can normally get them at camp sites reception.

    Just back from 7 weeks along the Atlantic coast.

    If you don't mind Aires Figueira has a massive parking area at the southern end of one of the biggest bestest beaches in Europe.

    Between 10 and 30 vans there during the week I stayed (couldn't drag myself away!

    Have a good trip
