Alan Rogers Review

Within easy reach of an extensive beach hidden behind impressive dunes, Camping Vagueira is a large site shaded under tall pine trees. It can cater for a considerable number of touring units, although pitches are not numbered, on sandy soil with sparse grass; the central area is fairly level and has a large number of seasonal caravans, interspersed with touring pitches, newly marked out by young shrubs or defined by trees. Elsewhere you just find a space on the sloping ground between the trees. Electrical connections (6A) are available throughout, although long leads may be needed. Quiet at other times, the site becomes lively in high season. An urban campsite, although located in a pine forest 500 m from the Ria de Costa Nova, 1 km from Vagueira, 8 km from Vagos and 16 km from Aveiro and Ílhavo, that offers relaxing holidays. The nearest beaches are those of Vagueira and Areão, 1.5 km away, rich in natural attractions and which offer the chance of watching wild grey herons while you lie in the sun. These beaches are also widely appreciated by surfers and bodyboarders. You must not miss the Xávega Art, the region’s traditional fishing and, in Vagos, we recommend a visit to the Sanctuary of Nossa Senhora de Vagos, the chapels of Senhora da Misericórdia, Santo António and the Torre Militar. The area’s excellent gastronomy is another reason for a visit.

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. In contrast, just to the north, is the delightful little village of Costa Nova which has rows of traditional, brightly painted houses and an amazing fish market. Beyond that 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.
