Further to our thread about getting a legal letter 12 months after being asked to move on by the police I am now wondering how you know where is legal to park up in the Algarve.
We were considering staying at the big parking near the airport at Faro where dozens of vans are parked but now not sure whether this is a legal place. We drove by today and couldn't see any signs that say "No overnight parking" but that was also true in Armacao de Pera.
Any thoughts, especially about the parking at Faro near the airport?

There is a little aire at Faro up past the marina on the other side of rail line. Its near the shopping centre. Nice n quiet but no services.

Sadly the parking at Armacao de Pera where we were moved on by police and subsequently got a letter is on both these websites. It's a bit of a problem but I think that Armacao has something else going on that is beyond our understanding. We certainly won't venture there again - which is a shame as it's lovely there.

We arrived there half an hour after the police had cleared all the campers off last May,spoke to a couple that managed to bluff them.They refused to sign anything and never gave any details,we decided to go to this campsite ,

We went back to the campsite in October with @champers and @BreweryDave ,had a smashing time. The campsite isn't expensive and saves having to worry about getting fined,unfortunately the police seem to be clamping down on the Algarve as we only stayed at our favourite wilding spot for one night after they had a word with us. :cry:
