It is not my intention to write about the whole Portugal, the culture and customs of its citizens and the monuments. If you want to read about all of that, I recommend you read guides that offer more details about this beautiful country.
However, since Andalusia lies close to Portugal and I had some opportunities to drive alongside the coast from the Spanish border to Porto, I will try to tell you more about the most interesting places I visited there.
It was one of the most beautiful family trips in a VAN. We set out from Malaga, then drove to Tariff and continued alongside the coast… In total, the meter showed that we travelled about 2500 km in 17 days.
We travelled alongside the southern and western coasts of Portugal, as can be seen on the map below.
Beira coasts differ from the ones described previously due to the vast, long and sandy beach. Before we came to Porto, we took a break near Praia de Mira. We found a very pleasant, grassy and rather empty Orbitura campsite. Near, there are a few other campsites to choose from. We did not have a lot of time to be picky because we were heading to Porto…
