General

  • Family-friendly site in the traditional seaside village of Porto Covo
  • A few minutes' walk from a sandy beach for swimming and surfing
  • Yoga, gym, play area, shop, café, outdoor kitchen, pool and dogs' pool

Water fans whose hols include copious opportunities to take a dip will be chuffed by the offerings at Costa do Vizir Camping.

All members of the family are well catered for here, with a large outdoor pool next to an excellent paddling pool – and even canines don’t miss out as there’s a dedicated dog bath where they can practise their doggy paddle. It's only a few minutes' walk too to the beach and the little village of Porto Covo, between the site and the sea.

Plenty of other leisure options are around on site, including yoga classes and a fitness area, a sports pitch for basketball and football, and a playground and games room for kids' outdoor and indoor time. For food, pick up bits from the site’s mini market or head to the poolside café for a selection of light meals, tapas and snacks... or use the communal barbecue and outdoor kitchen to cook sort supper to take over to the picnic tables.

    The pool and surrounding area is super peaceful and there’s plenty of (free) sun-beds to laze around on. The facilities are really new and clean.

The gravel pitches are great but the reservation system isn't.08/25/2019

Reviewer's country: SpainGRAHAM J.Confirmed

  • Electric optional gravel motorhome pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The large gravel pitch and the fact that it was very quiet at night.

    Disliked: 

    The fact that there was an error with my reservation. I had booked a gravel motorhome pitch way back in February and paid in full for my stay in advance. However, when we arrived there was no free gravel pitch and we were simply told to find another pitch and hope that a gravel pitch became available the following day (but with no guarantee). The rest of the campsite is dusty, crowded and noisy so this really messed up the first 24 hours of our stay. Fortunately a gravel pitch was vacated the next day and we spent the rest of our holiday there.

    Fantastic large gravel pitches with electric and water. You can choose which pitch you want. The whole site was kept really clean. The toilet and shower block were luxury compared to other sites weve been on. We didnt really use the site much as we were out and about with family each day so cant comment on the pool or cafe etc. Porto Covo is a pretty place, lovely place to visit, shop and eat with beautiful coastal views. We would definitely recommend a stay here for 3+ nights to visit nearby v.n. milfontes, Furnas and Sines.

Local attractions

Praia Grande is the village’s main beach and a popular spot among visitors and locals: in high season a lifeguard keeps watch over the waters, and you can hire surfboards and have surf lessons here if your technique needs a little boost.

Several little coves around the village provide alternative sandy beaches, or you could drive for 20 minutes or so to get to the wild dunes of Praia do Malhão or the sheltered Praia da Franquia, to rent motorboats or windsurfing kit.

For a spot of history, make the 20-minute drive to the coastal town of Sines, where you can visit the birthplace of 15th-century globetrotter Vasco da Gama and walk on the old castle walls. Drive a little further north (half an hour from the site) to reach the Roman ruins at Miróbriga and wander around the well-preserved forum, houses and bathhouses.

Also around half an hour from the site is the Badoca Safari Park, for guided tours on a tractor-pulled train among various inhabitants including zebras, giraffes, buffalo and ostriches. Bird of prey displays, a rafting ride and the chance to feed lemurs are among the park’s other attractions.
