  • Set in a pine woodland a 20-minute stroll from Nazaré
  • Four kilometres from the Norpark waterpark
  • Pool, tennis courts, common room and playground
Now, Nazaré's a pretty fine place for a Portuguese break…. The traditional Leiria fishing town is – rightly – one of the most popular seaside spots in all of Portugal, set on the spectacular Costa de Prata or Silver Coast, and home to a tiptop funicular railway linking its Praia and Sítio neighbourhoods. Beaches, natch, are topping here too, with long stretches of golden sand edging mighty surfing waves: the world record for surfing the biggest wave (a whopping 34 metres) was smashed here in 2011. A 20-minute walk from all this fine sandiness and surfing is Parque Orbitur Valado, a friendly family site set in a pine woodland. It's among a huge network of cycling and walking trails, a short drive from the Marinha Grande Glass Museum, and four kilometres from the Norpark waterpark. For days loafing around on site when you're not on the sands or the surf, the site has an outdoor pool, a play area, tennis courts, outdoor table tennis tables and a TV/common room, as well as wifi that covers most of the grounds. Dogs are welcome.

Liked: Good location 30 min walk to Nazare, although uphill. Toilets and showers were clean and worked well. Supermarket was a 20 min walk.

Disliked: Restaurant was open (March) staff very good unfortunately food was poor, but cheap. Very cold no heating had to leave early too cold to stay. Shop poor not much in the way of stock As other people have said site is sandy need to be careful at the side of pitches, we saw a camper having to be pulled out of the sand. This could be solved cheaply by laying some concrete slabs Reception staff were hard work had to ask a lot of questions to find information. Wifi not great. Site was bit run down.

Liked: O parque é limpo e sossegado e tem acesso rápido às casas de banho, porém é extremamente ventoso, uma vez que o parque está bastante "desabrigado" nas suas imediações, o que tornou a estadia desconfortável. Tivemos de reforçar a tenda durante a noite e era possível ver várias tendas já meio desmontadas assim que chegámos. Ter o local para montagem de tendas numa das extremidades do parque, considerando as suas condições, talvez não seja a melhor estratégia. Os locais comunitários estavam sempre limpos.

Liked: Friendly reception. Spotless showers/loos despite bad weather the floors were cleaned so frequently. Good size pitch. Grounds well maintained. Good area around the perimeter for dog ball throwing. Would stop again if passing through but too far from Beach for us.

Disliked: €6 euros per wash load. I know leckie has gone up- but!!! Electricity was not that good. Continually tripping off.To improve pitches for all weather conditions improve hardstanding

Local attractions

Whether you're a sand fan or a surfer, spectacular Nazaré should be your first stop, for beach and board days, much seafood and many bars in the town centre, and seeing traditional Portuguese dress on many of the residents in the town. For full-on views, take the funicular railway up to Promontório do Sítio. Away from town, the glass museum at Marinha Grande two kilometres away takes a clear look at the history of glassmaking in the region, along with the chance to see the artisans at work. Another good old option is the Church of Nossa Senhora da Nazaré, on a hilltop overlooking Nazaré, and the scene of a popular and lively religious festival every September. Also take the 31-kilometre drive to province capital Leiria, for sights including a castle, cathedral and the Praça Francisco Rodrigues Lobo main square, or drive the 90 kilometres to Coimbra, the medieval city with famed library the Biblioteca Joanina. If you hanker after more sands and surf, the beaches of Vale Furado and São Pedro de Moel are 12 and 22 kilometres away.
