The renovated Praia de Faro Municipal Camping Park reopened on 28 June, with a capacity for 689 people. This emblematic space is located between the Ria Formosa and the sea.

The opening of the campsite took place last Saturday but even before opening to the general public, it was symbolically “premiered” over the weekend by groups of scouts and guides from the municipality.

With a total area of 20,372 square metres, this site now has 200 lots for camping and tents (575 people) and 24 lots for caravanning (114 people). However, due to the pandemic, this space will work for now with limited capacity, which will adjust according to the pandemic situation. In addition to this, about a hundred trees have been planted at the site.

During the reopening, the mayor of Faro, Rogério Bacalhau, welcomed the end of a long battle to return this emblematic space to public use. “This space should have been working for some time, but today, finally, we have here a unique space with all the conditions and a phenomenal location, with the sea to the south and the Ria Formosa to the north”, said Rogério Bacalhau, adding that “there is no other campsite with these characteristics”.

“From now on, everyone who wants to stay at the campsite is able to”, added the president, by way of invitation.
