Rio Alto

Portugal - Porto - Póvoa de Varzim

Camping Rio Alto

Camping Rio Alto is quite a large campsite located in the northern dunes of Portugal. These can be found in the green region between Porto and Braga, a short distance away from the shoreline of the Atlantic Ocean.

Why camping Rio Alto ?

  • There's a sunbathing area, table tennis, activities for children, a self-service restaurant with take-away food plus a good resturant offering specialities of the region.
  • The large swimming pool is situated next to the campsite and is free to all guests.
  • There's a narrow 18 hole golf course (Golf Club Estela) between the sea and the campsite.
  • The beach is 100m away and can be accessed by a path that runs partly underneath the golf course.

Tip from the specialist:

"Although Porto is 35km away, Póvoa de Varzim is a lovely town and within easy reach. A modern campsite with excellent facilities, close to the sandy beach. Golf can be played next to the campsite."
