Alan Rogers Review

Within easy reach of an extensive beach, Camping Vagueira is a large site shaded under tall pine trees behind the dunes. Pitches are on sandy soil with sparse grass and the central area is fairly level. Elsewhere pitches are on sloping ground between the trees. Electrical connections (6A) are available throughout, although long leads may be needed.

The campsite lies in a pine forest 500 m from the Ria de Costa Nova, a delightful little village with traditional brightly painted houses and a colourful fish market. It's 1 km from Vagueira, 8 km from Vagos and 16 km from Aveiro and Ílhavo with the nearest beaches being those of Vagueira and Areão, 1.5 km away and popular with surfers. Be sure to visit Vagos and its Sanctuary of Nossa Senhora de Vagos, the beautiful chapels of Senhora da Misericórdia, Santo António and the Torre Militar. The area’s excellent gastronomy is another highlight.

This is a good family site if you do not need a pool and have transport to reach the beach. The seaside town here is fairly characterless, but the beach is excellent and there are the necessary shops, bars and restaurants. Beyond is the attractive town of Aveiro, known as Portugal’s Venice. Reception will provide excellent information about these and many other possible destinations for days out, including plans of how to get to Aveiro and where to park.
