Alan Rogers Review

Close to the old, traditional fishing port of Nazaré, which has now become something of a holiday resort, with a large sandy beach sheltered by headlands providing good swimming, Valado is on undulating ground under tall pine trees. The sandy soil is soft in places, so motorcaravanners should beware. It can accommodate up to 500 units (of which 200 would be tents) and, apart from some smallish pitches with electricity and water, the bulk of the site is not marked out and can become crowded in high season. Electrical connections (6A) are available throughout, though long leads may be needed.

A steep hill leads down to the village, with buses running from outside the gate. There are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants and the nearby marina offers opportunities for various water sports. There are numerous other beaches to the north, whilst the Lagoa de Óbidos to the south offers water sports, riding and golf. Outings could include a visit to the historic town of Leiria where the streets of the old town are lined with trendy shops or to the pretty town of Óbidos surrounded by mediaeval defensive walls. The famous shrine of Fátima is also within easy reach.
