Portugal, Algarve, Faro, Albufeira
Alan Rogers Review of Camping Albufeira
Here's a very pleasant, well-run site, close to bustling Faro and with a bus service to the resort of Albufeira from the gate. There's space for 1400 touring units on generally flat ground with some terracing on the upper area: trees and shrubs giving reasonable shade in most parts. Pitches are not marked or numbered; you can take as much space as you wish. Electrical connections (10A) are available throughout. Winter stays are encouraged, with the main facilities remaining open, including a pool.
An attractively designed complex of traditional Portuguese-style buildings on the hill houses an impressive range of restaurants and bars with the popular pool complex adjacent. It has large sunbathing terraces with pleasant views and is surrounded by a variety of flowers, shrubs and well-watered lawns, complete with a fountain.
The à la carte restaurant, impressive with its international cuisine, the very pleasant self-service one and several bars all have views across the three pools. A pizzeria and a soundproofed disco are great for younger campers. Along the coast in both directions is a variety of beaches and villages.
