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 optimal comfort. During your stay you will get to meet many likeminded families, it's certainly not only the kids having fun
  • 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!

The activities below are available during most of the season. The add-ons which do not appear in the booking tool can be booked on location.

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
  • Football: There's a football pitch at the camp site and it's not unlikely the parents will be witnessing some great football games

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 at your local grocery. There's a small kitchen present (fairly basic), mostly used to warm up a quick meal for the youngest members of the family.
