As we head North from the Algarve, the coastline of Portugal becomes more rugged and spectacular. After a quick pit stop at a supermarket we head to Camping Villa Park Zambujeira for a night at Portugal’s answer to Balamorey.
Camping Villa Park Zambujeira is a popular large site with narrow access roads but plenty of shade. Dotted around the site are lots of shared BBQs and picnic tables, we saw 3 different groups use the BBQ closest to us. In addition to touring pitches, there are several brightly coloured one and two bedroom houses available to rent.
10 minutes (probably less in cooler weather) is all it takes to walk from the campsite gates down to the stunning local beach. With cooler water than on the Mediterranean, the Atlantic coast provided excellent waves for surfing and bodyboarding fun. Back at the campsite, the pool has a retractable roof for year round swimming.
While we were there, our toilet broke. Poor old Steve spent an hour trying to fix it before realising that something had snapped and the lid was beyond repair!
We only stayed for 24 hours, but Camping Villa Park Zambujeira is one of the friendliest campsites we have visited.
