Site 84 - Camping Orbitur Caminha


This campsite, like many of the Orbitur sites, feels a little down at heel and neglected, however the staff are friendly, welcoming and work hard to make your stay a pleasant one.

Situated within yards of the sea and a beautiful sandy beach the site is ideally suited to those who enjoy beach holidays but is only two kilometres from town where there is a huge range of restaurants and cafes as well as a wide range of shops and a daily municipal market selling very fresh fish, meat and vegetables.

The facilities are kept clean but could do with refurbishment the toilets have no seats, and  on wet days the floor is far wetter than wet feet would make it. As is very common in Portugal there is no paper, soap or towels in any of the toilet blocks.

WiFi is free and available anywhere in the top half of the site and, when we arrived, was quite fast with a good signal but after a thunder storm and power outage the first night the WiFi became all but unusable. I suspect the storm or returning power “spiked” the equipment  which had only been upgraded the previous week.

We have visited this site before in 2011 and would not hesitate to do so again should we be in the area.
