Alan Rogers Review

This very attractive and well kept site is situated under tall pines on the edge of the rather select, small resort of São Pedro de Moel. It is a shady and peaceful place in low season, but can be crowded in July and August. There is space for some 400 touring units, including a few small marked pitches; otherwise you choose a place between the trees in one of two large camping areas; one has plentiful 6/10A electrical connections, the other a very limited provision. A few pitches are used for permanent units and an area to one side has 120 chalets and mobile homes, mostly for hire. The attractive, sandy beach is a short walk downhill from the site (you can take the car, although parking may be difficult in the town) and is sheltered from the wind by low cliffs.

However, this stretch of Atlantic coastline generally is wild (a surfer’s paradise) and swimming should always be undertaken with care. The nearby town of Marinha Grande has all the usual services, including a good selection of shops, bars and restaurants, as well as a Museum of Glass. A little further away is the historic town of Leiria with trendy shops in the narrow streets of the old town.


Four clean toilet blocks (not all opened in low season) have mainly British style toilets, hot showers and mainly open-style washbasins (some with hot water). Washing machines and dryer. Motorcaravan services. Gas supplies. Simple shop (1/10-31/5). Supermarket, restaurant and bar with terrace (1/6-30/9). Excellent pool complex with paddling pool and large slide (1/6-30/9). Satellite TV. Games room. Playground. Tennis. WiFi in some areas (free).
