“quality is worth the price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

the location of the camping is very good; it is the best way to reach Praia do Guincho (it is about 10 minutes walking) which is an amazing place... The camping area is big so we had really a lot of space for our tent! You have hot water for free, the restaurant is good (but it closes a bit early), the staff is really friendly and your tent will not became an oven!

Well, it is not that cheap, but it deserved the money I spent :)

The campsite is really nice, situated behind the vast sand dunes which seperate the place from the sea. The famous Guincho beach is within walking distance, there is also a fantastic cafe in the nearby village of Areia. You can sea the mountains in the east with some of Sintra's castles visible from the campsite.
The swimming pool is not very big, but not crowded, either. There is a small shop on the site but I do not recommend it: there is almost nothing there, and if there is something, it is usually of poor quality and/or overpriced.
The bungalows are average, the Eurocamp mobile homes are of a better quality.
There is a bus stop in front of the main entrance to the campsite, a taxi ride to Cascais is not expensive and you may even decide on a walk to Cascais (about 4 km), from where you may take a train to Lisbon.

Orbitur Guincho is a very good place if you want to enjoy Cascais and surrounding areas without spending too much.
The camping is located in a wonderful pine wood that shelters it from the hot summer sun and, thanks to its elevated position, benefits of lightly windy night that will allow you to rest peacefully.

Cascais is just 10 minutes by car (15 by bicycle) away and nice beaches are within walking distance.

Room Tip: Lot of trees, so just pick the place you like most for planting your tent!

Awesome place near Guincho beach. Lot's of great on site facilities. We stayed in the 5 bed bunglaow for two nights. The staff were always helpful and the beach was only a 15minute walk away. Taxi into Cascais was about €7.
