11th - 12th August 2021
Well, we finally found the crowds! At the start of our trip, we found many quiet campsites and camper parks. Don’t worry though, we’ve found everyone, they are all right down on the southern coast!
We planned to spend one last night in Spain. We had a pin on our map for a beautiful looking Camper Park with a lovely pool, but unfortunately, by the time we arrived it was full. So, next we tried an amazing looking campsite, but when we attempted to book in we realised we had left our passports at the previous camperpark and had to return to collect them. By this time it was quite late in the afternoon and we didn’t want to pay full price for a luxury campsite.
So we pushed on to another aire, but this time the one way system was working against us. Feeling ever so slightly defeated we made the decision to leave Spain and hop over the border into Portugal. We were relieved when we crossed the bridge and there were no passport of covid checks. Hurrah, we’ve arrived in the Algarve! Boo, there was no way to access an electricity supply at the first aire we came to.
Our final failed stop was a beach carpark. As we drew closer, memories started flooding back of a wonderful afternoon spent on the beach with our good friends Nick and Sarah and their boys Jacob and William. We also started to remember that this was “day parking” only. Before we even arrived at the gates we were met by a “Grumpy Attendant” and turned sharply away.
After a long and frustrating drive we finally arrived at the Algarve Motorhome Park in Tavira. This new motorhome park features lovely well spaced pitches, modern facilities including a decent sized laundry room and electricity and water to each pitch. As well as safe overnight parking, the Algarve Motorhome Park Service Area is also accessible for motorhomes passing through.
We are the Radford family from Milton Keynes, England and we like to travel the world in our motorhome. We have 3 boys, Eddie is 15, Harry is 13, and George is 9.
