Alan Rogers Review
This popular site, with good facilities, has the advantage of being open all year and is within walking distance of the town and beach. As such, it makes a perfect base for those visiting out of the main season, or for long winter stays when fees are heavily discounted.
Well lit and fenced, it has around 900 shady pitches (740 for touring units) on sandy terrain, many marked out and divided by hedges. There is an area, mainly for motorhomes, where you just park under the trees. Some pitches are small and cars may have to be parked in an internal car park. Electricity (6A) is available throughout.
The town has a good covered market as well as the usual shops, bars and restaurants. There are opportunities for watersports, fishing, canoeing and swimming from the resort beaches.
Milfontes (pronounced Milfontsh) is located in the Parque Natural do Sudoeste Alentejano and there are wonderful opportunities for walking and cycling along the numerous marked paths. The park extends away to the south for over 80 km. and offers unprecedented opportunities to view wildlife such as wild boar and migrating birds. Even at the height of the season, it is still possible to find almost deserted beaches along the Costa Vicentina.
