Camping Peniche Praia is located in Peniche, Portugal.

  • It’s an oddly located site in the middle of Peniche’s industrial zone. On the one hand it’s right by the seaside cliffs and you can hear the sea, on the other, the surrounding area is bizarre and a bit ugly.
  • There is virtually no shade as there are no trees. The spots are fairly small with a sandy ground but mostly without steep slopes.
  • The site is located a bit on a hill, so if you plan to go to the beach, you have to walk quite far. With a bike, the way down is nice, but remember you have to pedal back again.
  • The wifi works very well close the reception area. The staff claimed it works on the whole site, but that was not true in my case. However, in the wifi area, it worked very well and fast.
  • The bar / restaurant has good coffee and dishes. However, there’s no real, little market. You can ask for some stuff at the bar, but that’s a bit troublesome. The next supermarket is located about 15-20 walking minutes away.
  • The laundry is done alongside other laundry of the site, so you can’t just come and do the laundry yourself. Plan accordingly.
  • The showers are a bit odd, on some the interval for the water is about five ludicrous seconds, on others it was much longer. As on most camp sites, I was missing hooks for towel, stuff and potentially bathrobe. Some showers had three hooks but in others they were broken.
  • Next to the site is a little place that sells fresh fish and also fish dishes – quite tasty.
  • The price was a very nice 12,50 € for two persons, one camper and electricity. It was a special price, the regular price is a bit more.

My rating

There are only two campgrounds in the city. The other one is located a bit more conveniently to the village and the beaches. I heard it’s a bit less safe but I can’t really say. In the end, it’s a coin toss decision: take your pick. If you like, also check my post on Peniche.
