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.

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.

Facilities

Seven modern sanitary buildings are kept clean but equipment is fairly basic; mainly British style WCs, open washbasins (some with warm water) and free showers. Facilities for disabled campers. Washing machines and dryer. Shop, bar/snacks and restaurant (newly franchised when we visited and not yet operating, probably March-Sept). Basic supplies from reception at other times. Outdoor disco (w/ends in high season). Games room. Playground. Tennis (charged). Satellite TV. WiFi throughout (free). Torches useful.
