    Hi
    Silves car-park---loads of campers there---ok'd by the mayoress:thumb: it's free with free wi-fi at the piscina (swimming pool) at the car-park.water available and a place to dump your loo---ask anyone there----Silves is a really nice little town.
    Also at Silves barragem Arade (dam) just take Messines road out of town---loads of space there, not many vans as NO WATER available there AFAIK.
    Portimao (free wi-fi at the Portimao retail park--it is at/near the food hall (which has good food and prices--good meal for €5.50)-- on the N125) and there is a large parking area, near the marina we believe, where you can park for €2 a night with dump and water at €1.50/100 litres.
    Other than that just keep your eyes open for a place--------we stay in the hills and have no trouble finding places.
    A lot of campers have been fined for wild camping around the beaches----we know they have been moved from Alvor this year.
    We will be heading back to the Algarve in about 2 weeks-------also there is a camp-site at Mexilhoeira Grande Co-Ord. N37o10.372' W8o36.794' Phone 00351968 451 636 (could be 461 instead of 451 ?) or google 'the Chicken Run' about €9 a night inc-----. VERY small and laid-back---Really nice English owners.

    Lagos Aire

    Try the FREE Aire alongside the Estado Municipal (Municipal Football Ground) just outside Lagos when entering from A125. Grey/Black disposal free, water available by token purchased at Football Stadium office €2 = 100litres. WC's also on Aire but not sure where to obtain key, would guess stadium office.


    Regards, Bryan

    PS: 2 beautiful free parking locations in Sagres, adjacent to the bus terminal, glorious ocean views.... no facilities.
