Highlights

  • Family Camp in style: This amazing family camp is located at a small-sized camp site in the South West of Portugal. Part of this camping is converted into the family camp, with stylish tents for optiomal comfort. During a week or two you will get to meet many likeminded families, so it's not only the kids who make new friends.
  • Dip in the pool: The camping has its own pool so in case you got tired of the waves or just would like a quick dive to wake up to, the pool is the place where you need to be. The kids absolutely love this
  • Absolutely stunning: We are referring to the coast lines of either the West and the South coast of Portugal. Especially the families with a car will be able to enjoy breathtaking views to the fullest. It's well worth it and trust us, you will be surprised!

Activities

  • Child Care: We aim at offering child care for kids from 4 years and up 3 times per week, proving the parents with an opportunity to relax, go the the beach or visit one of the nearby towns
  • Did we say pool?!: Yes, that's correct. The camping has its own pool and that's always immensely popular, especially for the kids
  • Ping Pong: There is a ping pong table as well, where kids will have fun until after dinner has actually started
  • The beach: The beautiful beach of Amoreira is close by and it's well worth spending a couple of days just chilling and hanging about

Activities to add-on

  • Yoga: Yoga and surf are well connected. Focus on your balance, physically and mentally. Also, yoga is a great way to relax the muscles after a heavy session of surf
  • Surfing: You didn't come all the way to Aljezur to not surf, aren't we right? Opt for the 3 or 5 surf lessons (beginners or intermediate) or go to one of the many beaches yourself to practice some free surfing

Food & Drinks

You are recommended to opt for the half-board option. This comes with a daily breakfast and 5 truly delicious dinners. The meals are one of the best ways to socialize with others, where the parents can have a nice glass of Portuguese wine while the kids share their adventures of the day. Kids with the age 0 - 2 eat for free, kids from 3 until 9 get a 50% on the price. There are supermarkets nearby but the offer is not what you might be used to back home. There's a small kitchen present, mostly used to warm up a quick meal for the youngest members of the family.

Bruno Marques 3 / 5

There’s no shadow anywhere in the park, it had a lot of noise and there’s no grill. The opening hours of the supermarket were insufficient.
