We were there in January and had the beaches, attractions and towns in between Comporta and the Cabo Sardao almost to ourselves. We noticed again and again vans, mobile homes and campers that we saw in parking lots along the coast. Campsites in Portugal are mostly located by the sea. However, these are few and far between. Even in winter, numerous camping friends are drawn to the sea in Portugal. No wonder! Even in January, the temperatures are up to 10° C during the day. Swimming is then hardly possible, but you have the beaches all to yourself for hours of beach walks. We have seen for ourselves how beautiful it is.
