Best Campsites Algarve Portugal

Portugal provides many options for campsites: near the ocean or inland, with a lake view, near the typical villages, rivers and forests. We will tell you the Top 10 best campsites for camping in Portugal, what to expect and places with which you can identify yourself.

How to choose a campsite

When choosing a campsite for you, think about your individual preferences and expectations from this place. Consider the next aspects:

  1. The daily price of a campsite. If your aim is just to sleep overnight and early morning drive away for surfing, you may be happy with cheap small campsites that are a type of parking lot. If you are a person who likes to have long bbq evenings, having a lazy long morning at the shadow, you may prefer big campsites with plenty of trees, pool and bar.
  2. Check-in time or closing time of the reception. Often small campsites and type of parking lot limit their check-in time to 19h or 20h.
  3. If there is WC on the facilities. Some small RV parkings do not provide the WC in the facilities, thus do not accept tents and campers without WC.
  4. If you camp with a tent: check if the campsite accepts tents. Some small campsites type of parking lot do not accept tents.
  5. Think about your dinner in advance. Some campsites are located in the forests and natural parks where is not easy to find open supermarkets and restaurants within walking distance.
  6. Latest comments/evaluations of guests: know what to expect. Consider that in the summer is normal to have slightly more bad comments due to the bigger concentration of the tourists.
  7. The most silent places in the campsite are the corners of a campsite, far away from the WC facilities.
