    Hi guys

    Looking on Campercontact, the overnight parking / Aire has suddenly vanished

    The service point at Intermarche is still there, but I guess this is not for overnight stays.

    Are there any legal overnight stops in Sagres now?

    Thanks

    Robert

    Thanks @chaser, I'll give this one a try, and if it's no longer legal will use a campsite in the next town

    Regards

    Hi,

    I don't know about 'legal' but there are several tolerated spots which have been listed above, we used the one by the Fort (massive paved area) and Praia Ingrina (a few kms to the east) last year with no problems. I suppose you could overnight at the Intermarche but more handy for the service point, wouldn't be particularly picturesque for overnighting there but no doubt some do, there are designated covered spaces for motorhomes.

    From memory Pete, the place on Campercontact was the place at the fort. I'm wondering if there has been a clampdown, hence why it was taken off the website.

    I'm not trying to avoid campsites, however I'd rather pay to stay on a site than risk a heavy fine

    Regards

    Robert

    It was ok last year Robert but things change, its still on campingcar-infos though.

    The one you are heading for from chasers list had no motorhome signs all over it when we had a look last year but there were vans overnighting nearby overlooking the sea at 37.00613 93970 but we didn't use it.
    You could also park down at the port as long as you don't get any chairs etc out.. 37.00803 -8.92823

    I suppose the only way to find out is to go and have a cruise around, if its still allowed near the fort no doubt there will be quite a few vans there.
