This 4-star campsite boasts SGS certification for the quality of its services, and enjoys direct access to the beach just 150 metres away. The site lies 30 km north of Oporto and Póvoa de Varzim is 13 km away. Póvoa de Varzim is both a colourful, authentic little fishing village and a vibrant, bustling seaside resort in high season, with a range of bars, restaurants, clubs as well as a casino and a beach that's perfect for surfing. This region is steeped in history and culture.
The Orbitur Rio Alto campsite takes its name from the river that stops at Estela. Póvoa de Varzim is home to fishermen and other locals with a tie to seafaring tradition. The town's grandest feast day is held in celebration of Saint Peter, the patron saint of fishermen. The local cuisine is centred on fresh ingredients such as fish or regional vegetables. Eça de Queirós, one of Portugal's greatest writers, was born here in Póvoa de Varzim. Visit the ruins of the 18th-century aqueduct as well as the old windmills.
Portugal's Douro region is packed full of cultural and sight-seeing gems, especially Oporto and its historic, UNESCO-listed Ribeira quarter.
