There are over 230 campsites in Portugal. Most of them are located on the coastline by the Atlantic Ocean which means going camping in Portugal will take you to the sea but you should not overlook the country's 2 main cities, Lisbon and Porto. Cruise along the Atlantic coastline with your motor home and stop at the best surfing spots between Aveiro and Costa Da Caparica. Choose quality services at a campsite in Southern Portugal and spend bargain holidays with your family and friends. Camping Direct's offers will take you to the picturesque villages of sunny Portugal at the best price or to a campsite by the sea in Faro. Whether on the coast or inland, you'll always find good deals - and we're not talking camping only, which makes Portugal one of the most interesting destinations in Europe budget wise. Do not wait any longer! Camping Direct has selected the best campsites in Portugal for you.
Camping by the sea means you'll benefit from many sea resorts. Among them, the city of Lagos hosts Camping Yelloh! Village Turiscampo ****. Lagos is located in Algarve, Portugal's far South. This region which borders Andalusia draws many tourists thanks to its dry and warm weather. Yet, it's always possible to stay away form the masses: spend a day out (at least) inland and explore the banks of river Guadiana, which serves as a natural border with Spain, the little town of Alcoutim or Sapal's nature park. Portugal, and most particularly Algarve, are very popular in springtime (as is Andalusia) : book at a campsite in Portugal way ahead in the season, as soon as January for instance.
