With a busy winter cutting trees, fixing roads, and splashing a bit of paint around, we are so happy to invite you all back in for 2024! The gates are back open and we are here and waiting for you to join us for the spring and summer.

Nestled amidst towering trees and chirping birds, our campsite beckons adventurers and nature enthusiasts alike. Our welcoming haven offers sanctuary from the chaos of everyday life, offering ourselves as a base for your outdoor escapades, or for the serenity of staring at the stars. Unwind, explore and reconnect with the earth beneath your feet as we invite you to immerse yourselves in the beauty and adventure that await at our campsite this summer.

See hope to see you very soon.

O Tamanco is a campground in the green heart of the Costa da Prata, between Porto and Lisbon. A unique base to explore central Portugal. 

Visit the many historic monuments and locations in the region, browse local markets, discover Portuguese cuisine and drink um cafézinho in one of the many pastelarias. Go hiking amidst pristine greenery, along the secluded beaches or endless sand dunes that stretch from Figueira da Foz to Nazaré, rightfully known as a surfers’ mecca for having the highest waves in the world.
