Alan Rogers Review

Camping Sagres is a pleasant site at the western tip of the Algarve, close to Cabo de São Vicente, the headland at O Fim do Mundo (Portugal’s Lands End), in the wild and unspoilt southwest corner of the country. Tents can pitch anywhere on the lower slopes under the pine trees; higher up there are 52 marked and an unspecified number of unmarked, sandy pitches, some terraced, located amongst pine trees that give good shade, including some hardstandings for motorcaravans. There are 6A electrical connections in the upper areas. Nearby are beaches, popular with surfers, the town of Sagres and the lighthouse at the Cape.

It has the second most powerful lamp in Europe and there are good facilities, including toilets, a shop and a bar. Sunsets can be impressive, though it is always windy, and people come equipped with blankets as well as cameras. In stormy weather the waves can crash high over the lighthouse. The fortress at Sagres is built on the site of Henry the Navigator’s School of Navigation, which was sacked by Francis Drake in 1587. The town has shops, bars and restaurants, whilst for a wider choice you can head east to the historic town of Lagos, perhaps visiting beaches and attractive little resorts en route.

Supermarket, bar and restaurant (15/6-15/9). Bread orders and basic supplies in reception in low season. TV/games room. Satellite TV in restaurant. Bicycle hire. Playground. Barbecue area. Car wash.
