Lagos - Camp sites

Lagos is woefully equipped with decent campsites near town.

The old campsite Camping Trinidade in the centre behind the old football stadium is small and not well equipped for campavans.

This one is situated about 5km from Lagos and 2km from Praia da Luz.

It looks fine from the road with plenty of space.

This is on the N125 about 7 km from Lagos and 3km from Luz. It is in walking distance of Espiche Village. It looks fine from the road with plenty of space.

Note there are restrictions now on taking campavans into the old town of Lagos and the Council is now very tight on overnight parking in beachfront car parks. If possible it is better to bring supplementary transport as well such as bikes.
