Great campsite. We arrived in their last week of opening so had great choice of where to pitch. Still quite a lot of campers passing through.easy cycling into town but some on the road. Beautiful beaches and a fairly busy town for the end of season. Intermarche supermarket close by .
Very clean toilets and great shower with plenty of hot water. Unfortunately the bar closed on Sunday and the small shop was closed. What value though with electric and great wifi.

As others have already said its a real gem, came here for a couple of nights but stayed a week. Met some lovely people and all did the same, stayed more than they had planned for. Thank you Phillip, Roy and Olinda all lovely people with good language skills. The site has a very handy local Intermache with a café where you can get a good coffee and a pastel de nata. I swam in the river that runs alongside the campsite beautifully clear water but quite cold and the long sandy beaches near by are totally unpopulated and well maintained.

Excellent campsite with friendly and helpful staff. Cycle ride to ancora beach and town 10 minutes. Also cycled to caminha along cycle route as far as Praia moledo then through trees. Restaurant on campsite very reasonable and good especially the pork. Will definitely stay here again

Having read the reviews we were apprehensive of visiting this site – it just shows you need to be circumspect and open minded. This site is truly magnificent with wonderful staff who in the tradition of all Portuguese are most kind, helpful and polite.
Yes, the grass pitches are not defined but there is ample space in which to locate yourself under the numerous eucalyptus trees. The facilities are scrupulously clean and there is plenty of hot water at all times for the showers, although only on a couple of the sinks. Water is available at numerous points around the site although very low pressure!! Waste bins are provided throughout the site. The park is maintained to a high standard and kept meticulously clean and tidy.
The nearby village of Vila Praia Âncora is very attractive with small shops and good bars and restaurants. It also boasts an attractive beach. Close by, back out onto the main A13 is situated an Intermarche which should satisfy all your shopping needs. Take a trip northwards to Caminha and also up to Ponte de Lima and southwards to Viana do Castelo, neither will disappoint.
If we have any criticism it is that the electricity is what is now becoming the norm 6amps so restricts the use of additional gas-saving cooking equipment.
We must also mention in particular Rui, the receptionist, who’s particular attention made our 10 day stay so memorable. Thank you.

Lovely campsite. Quiet in September. Unmarked pitches amongst Pine and Eucalyptus trees with plenty of space. Toilets and showers clean and tidy. Toilet paper, but no soap. Plenty of hot water for showers and washing up. WiFi on the pitch. 10amp electricity. All this for the ACSI rate per night. Nice bar/restaurant. Limited menu, but very nicely presented and good size portions. Fabulous value - we had 2 starters, 2 mains, a beer, a very nice bottle of Douro red and 2 coffees and just 3 minutes walk from our pitch! Will definitely return.

Worth visiting just for the showers. Best showers this side of the Atlantic! Great to wake up with the smell of pine trees.

A quiet peaceful site, with good clean toilet facilities. River is pretty but there is no room to walk alongside. An easy walk to a large supermarket.

William Adshead, on this campsite in May 2019

Whatever you do, DO NOT follow sat nav directions from the N305. The R. de Santa Luzia is completely unsuitable for a motorhome. Instead, access the site from the N13(signposted).
This is a pleasant, quiet site with good security. The owner is friendly but doesn’t speak much English. However, there is a young lad about in the evenings who speaks very good English. Large sandy beach within walking distance and a supermarket nearby (about 15mins walk). The walk into the local town with a few restaurants/bars/shops takes about 30 mins on a level board walk avoiding busy roads. WiFi is good, sanitation blocks clean and all in good working order.
I am happy to recommend this site.
