- Among spectacular scenery near Alentjo's Vicentina Coast
- Waterpark with Olympic pool, paddling pool and indoor wave pool
- Restaurant, farm and archery all on site
A Portuguese eco experience – and then some. The star of smashing Zmar Eco Experience in Odemira's Ambujeira do Mar is undoubtedly its spectacular waterpark (Olympic pool, anyone?), but oh so much more fabness awaits at this award-winning Portuguese seaside site.
For sandy starters, Zmar is a short drive from the pristine beaches of Almograve, lauded as among the most splendid in Alentejo – which in turn have been acclaimed as among the finest beaches in all of Europe. Its Vicentina Coast setting is next to the vast Alentejano and Costa Vicenta Natural Park too; within day trip distance of the Algarve, and a central spot for many a day surfing, kayaking or swimming in the region's waters. The Festival Sudoeste, one of the biggest rock festivals in Europe, is held every August in local town Zambujeira do Mar so all you dudes can party on (man).
But. That waterpark. Clap your eyes upon the site pics to see its true splendour, for as is known around the world, a picture is worth a thousand watery words. This fab place comes with an outdoor Olympic pool, a paddling pool and an indoor pool with artificial waves, just to see you sorted for the first day or two.
And. There's a whole heap more to keep all ages entertained on this friendly park, such as a small farm for small guests to coo over the animals, a playground to keep them occupied afterwards, and sports activities of all sorts including a padel court, a fitness area, five a side football pitch and – right on target, this – archery for you to test your shooting skills. A kids' club and entertainment activities run during high season.
Are you a tad peckish after all that? Time for a lazy lol in the Zmar restaurant, to sort out plentiful supplies of fresh local food. A pool bar as well as picnics are available in summer too.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Zmar's setting on the Vicentina Coast is a short drive from the seaside village of Zambujeira do Mar, home of the famed Festival do Sudoeste or Southwest Festival every August. Surfing and kayaking are available nearby, either at Zambujeira or one of the several resorts dotted along the coast.
Heading inland, it's a 20-minute drive to Odemira, an ancient town atop a hill with white houses facing the Mira river. Potters and wannabes can mosey along to Odemira's pottery workshop to see earthenware being moulded into shape by the skilled local artisans; after that, head out of town to the big Santa Clara dam, where there's a watersports centre and stacks of space for summer sunbathing.
It's about two and a half hours' drive from this peaceful place to the Portuguese capital Lisbon, a trip well worth making for a day around this splendid city's cafés, museums, architecture and busy arty vibe.
