Parque Orbitur Gala: Chalet's

General

  • Forest site 400 metres from the beach
  • With outdoor pool, tennis courts, restaurant, bar and car wash
  • A 10-minute drive to Figueira da Foz; 40 minutes to Coimbra

The splendid lengthy sands – and popular surfing/bodyboarding spot – of Cova Gala are within walking distance of the park at 400 metres away, and the site is in the centre of Lavos forest and close to Serra Gorda mountain for outdoor options on days when you're not at the beach. And it's all a few kilometres north of Figueira da Foz and another splendid beach in its 2km stretch.

Parque Orbitur Gala is properly equipped with plenty of facilities and amenities, such as an outdoor pool, tennis courts, a sports court, table tennis, playground and even a car wash; food is sorted at the supermarket and the restaurant and bar with terrace.

Parque Orbitur Gala also has coin-operated washing machines, a service point and three shower and loo blocks.

  • Liked: 

    The staff was incredibly nice and helpful. The people working at reception all spoke great English, which made communication easy. We got our car stuck in some sand and the staff helped us a lot - we could not have done it without their help. Facilities were nice and clean - you could see staff cleaning daily. The campsite was quiet. Pool was nice and the shop carried the essentials. It’s about a 1 minute walk to the beach.

    Disliked: 

    There wasn’t much shade, but the person at reception told us that’s because some of the trees got sick and they had to remove them. There wasn’t any toilet paper in the bathroom, which was a bit strange and inconvenient. There were paper towels though.

From the manager...

We are glad you stayed with us and we thank you for reviewing our property. We took good note of your comments as a contribution to improve our products and services and we’ll be looking forward to seeing you again soon. Take care, be safe!

    Lovely site a stone’s throw from an amazing beach. Great facilities including spotlessly clean toilets and showers. We were almost the only people there over Christmas and the weather cooperated with cloudless skies and beautiful sunsets. The staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful. The enclosed site made us feel very safe. We would definitely stay again.

    Disliked: 

    Although the car was facility was an excellent idea, the tokens (I bought 2) give a minute of wash! I had just enough time to wash the windscreen!

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

After a day at Cova Gala's sands/sea, find Figueira da Foz for a day on its beach followed by dinner at one of the many restaurants or pavement cafés among its old streets (the casino in town is pretty popular too). The Sierra da Boa Viagem mountain range is three kilometres north of the town for nature spotters and hikers.

The ancient city of Coimbra is about 55km from Parque Orbitur Gala, dating back to Roman times and awarded UNESCO World Heritage status in 2013 for its rather magnificent old buildings. Spend at least a couple of days here if that's what you're into: highly recommended sights to see are the university baroque library, its rising Upper Town and its twelfth century Sé Velha cathedral.

Coimbra's Museu Nacional de Machado de Castro/National Museum Machado de Castro is built on the old Roman forum; more Roman history is at Conímbriga, one of the biggest Roman excavations ever unearthed in Portugal and still the best preserved.
