hi know them places . we stop a bit further up at furadouro. on the left of the town is a big carpark . on the way up visit figueria da foz then take those lovely coast roads to murtinheira and upto praia da tocha and pria de mira . stopping at the unmarked beach (praia de cantanheda).39293930 hopefully there is a pic of the trakto the unmarked beach and one of the beach itself . sand as far as the eye can see. mind lots of rubbish had come ashore during the winter ,they do clean it before summer. its on the white roads on the cepsa map. if any of you are going to spain and portugal get the cepsa mapamax atlas book its really good far better than a michelin.

3931hi grath bet you know this one .

Sure do, opposite the photo I posted. Did you notice how they have made the parking smaller with a height barrier going in for the cars. They were working on it when we were there. The road markings were new and still going down as we drove over them.

We parked for the weekend within the closed off Pit area for the Jet Ski championship. Noisy but what an atmosphere

hi .we were there before you. think the date is on there. we used to get water in the firestation.. they have some cracking vehicles . been going there for years. missed last two. we park there and over to the left at super turbos . surf beach. or way over to the right a track from baleal to ferrel. good surfing out there. mind as i have said before we try to stay on the road /track nearest the sea. gets abit wild at times . cant do all of them as too big . good job i can reverse . sometimes i wish i was back i the vw t2. 3932heres one from cabo da roca . the furthest east you can go in europe. park by the lighthouse ok for a night.

We talked about that a few months ago while I was there. I always thought before that Cap Finisterre was the furthest west.

An impromptu singing party to welcome us as we entered Portugal

Thanks for the reviews. I would like to point out that these photo's were not meant as pretty pics but to show actual what to expect from o/n parking locations.
