Sites in Portugal
Ah sun-kissed Portugal. Having travelled through France and Spain in your caravan or motorhome you might as well keep going and take a well-earned rest on one of Portugal’s golden beaches.
The main beach area is the Algarve – its long stretches of golden sand, rocky coves and impressive waves make it an ideal destination for your perfect beach holiday.
The capital Lisbon is where it all happens – expect a lively but welcoming city. Visit the city centre on foot and wander through the 16th-century Bairro Alto or explore St George’s Castle – standing firm since the 6th century. Porto and Braga are well worth a visit too, both jam-packed with history.
We recommend that you book a stay at the following caravan sites in Portugal – all have been inspected by us – so you can expect high standards.
