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. 

A campsite placed in extraordinary surroundings, in a small spa town on the Costa de Prata, which is often visited by inhabitants of the central-interior area of the country. It is one of the most attractive campsites in the Orbitur network, located in a pine wood, quiet and with excellent infrastuctures. It offers good commercial services, which include a bar/restaurant, swimming pools with slides for all to enjoy, and bungalows fitted with all the comforts needed for a holiday or weekend. The beach, which is protected, is 600m away. S.Pedro de Moel campsite won the first DCC Europe award in 2004, given in Portugal for the first time by the Deutscher Camping-Club. 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.
