Alan Rogers Review

This site in northern Portugal is worth considering as it has the advantage of direct access, via a gate in the fence (locked at night), to a large and excellent soft sand beach (200 m) which is popular for windsurfing. There are 225 pitches on three wide terraces with easy access, 150 of these with electricity (long leads may be needed). Some flat, good sized pitches are numbered and reserved for caravans and motorhomes but with little shade. The large grass area for tents has more shade. It could become crowded in July/August. A pleasant restaurant terrace overlooks the pool.

A ferry crosses the river to the town centre. The site is also convenient for visiting the medieval town of Ponte de Lima (24 km), with its white-washed houses, towers and Roman bridge, and Viana do Castelo is famous for its beautiful embroideries and festival processions.

On N13 coast road driving north to south drive through Viana do Castelo and over estuary bridge. Turn immediately right off N13 towards Cabedelo and the sea. Site is the third campsite signed, the other two are not recommended.
