Me and my friends are planning a road trip to Portugal in August. We would like to hire a camper for 4 people and cruise along the coast, and do some surfing.
That said I read that camping is prohibited except for designated camping areas - it is allowed to park the car by a road, but not to camp. This is quite understandable for the safety reasons, however I was wondering about camping at some "unspoilt by human /wild" terrains (and not national parks), preferably close to the oceanside.
We will obviosuly keep it safe, and clean- but would love to avoid busy campings, and stay as close to nature as possible. Does anyone here know if the Portugese are strict about giving tickets to those who want to camp outside of designated camping fields?
