Alan Rogers Review

Close to the centre of the pretty resort of Vila Nova de Milfontes and its beach, this is a neat, well-kept site. The pitches are of a reasonable size and are set amongst tall pines which offer some shade. Many have 6A electrical connections. Opposite the site entrance is the town’s covered market, and close by are all the usual shops, bars and restaurants. There are many fine beaches along this coast (Costa Vicentina) and the huge Parque Natural do Sudoeste Alentejano extends away to the south for over 80 km. with numerous walking and cycling tracks to enjoy, as well as some remarkable flora and wildlife.

Wild boar are sometimes seen, and it is a great place to observe migrating birds. Cabo Sadao is the only location in the world where storks nest on the precipitous cliffs. No fewer than 750 species of flora have been identified in the park, 12 of which are unique to this region. The beaches are invariably magnificent and attract all manner of watersport enthusiasts. Even at the height of the season, it is still possible to find almost deserted beaches, including little coves edged with volcanic rocks.


Three traditional toilet blocks would benefit from modernisation. They provide a mixture of British and Turkish-style WCs and there is only cold water to open-syle washbasins and sinks. Motorcaravan services. Bar and excellent restaurant popular with locals. Games/TV room. Play area. Barbecues not permitted. No WiFi. Dogs are not accepted. Mobile homes to rent.

Approaching from the north on A2, leave at exit 9 (Grandola) and head southwest on IC33 to Sines. Shortly before Sines, head south on IC4 to Cercal and then join the westbound N390 to Vila Nova de Milfontes. From Algarve take N120 to Odemira and turn northeast on N393 to Milfontes. Site is clearly signed on entering town.
