My wife & spent 2 months at this site in 2014 and decided that we would like to spend 4 weeks there in November 2016; that tuned out not to be the case. We spent 4 days at this site and subsequently decided to leave, never to return! Regrettably standards had deteriorated over the years and having known how good it was, as to what it is now, we decided to move on.

One of the third world toilet blocks had been knocked down and a new one was in progress to rebuild; apparently it is estimated will have taken 12 months or so, from start to finish. If the will was there, I’m sure it could be built in half the time. The campers are paying for something that they are not using at the moment, either offer a part-refund, or pressurize the builder to complete asap/

The remaining sub-standard toilet blocks had no toilet paper, no toilet seats and no liquid soap to clean up with. If they were to charge an additional amount to cover these items, my guess is nobody would complain. The cleaners look totally disinterested!

A message for the “Municipal Campsite President” – cleanliness is a big issue for the Northern countries – please use your position to rectify this oversight at this camp as it is undermining your sites past reputation

The slow camp Wifi is still second rate and can only be accessed in/by the restaurant. It’s time for the municipality to reinvest some of your profits and install a Wifi network which covers the whole site.

The mature trees on this site have been pruned recently, however, many trees still look unsafe and need to be cut back further. Trees have fallen in the past and given the size on many of these trees, if they were to fall on your outfit, could well result in serious injury or worse. Oh by the way - if something amiss was to happen, the site owners state that they would not be liable for any costs, claims etc - Net result - make sure that your insurance is intact if you visit here.

( Plot Nos. E3/4 )

Fuzeta is a small fishing village and the campsite is located in the village and is only @ 150 yards from Fuzeta beach, along with its numerous restaurants, cafes etc.

We arrived 4th December 2014. We had identified this site en-route from our AA camping manual and had tentatively planned to stay at this municipal campsite for a week or so and we enjoyed it so much, we ended up staying there for 2 months @ €11. 00 / night inclusive of electricity. The campsite is visited by mostly French/Dutch travelers, along with a sprinkling of long term British travelers/residents.

We spoke to one of the long-stayers from the UK who advised that he had been coming to Portugal for around 15 years and had stayed in many (if not the majority) of the campsites in the Algarve area. Of which, he regards this camp-site as being the best for value for money and more importantly, for its excellent location, location!

Wi-fi access is available free at the on site bar/restaurant, along, with the majority of the tourist restaurants in the village/sea front. F. Y. I. – A 330ml bottle of Sagres, the Portuguese beer at the on site restaurant is only €1. 20 & a glass of wine €1. 10 (cheap as chips!)

A great bar is “La Concha” which is approx. 300 yards from the site in the centre of the village and is very modern, with a friendly French owner who speaks English. They have a free entry 1970 -1980’s disco music every Friday night and with a Sagres beer at only €1. 00 a bottle, a good time is assured.

Access to the camp-site is just in front of the sea front bars and restaurants and most of the individual sites are of hard-standing, very tidy, with good rain water drainage & with a good security system in place. Only real negative is the fact that there are a lot of trees on site – great for shade in summer, however, I understand that branches have fallen off a few trees in very windy conditions

This municipal site is in a fantastic location next to the fishing quay, close to the town beach, cafés, restaurants, daily market and walking distance to a good sized supermarket. It was worth putting up with a bit of town noise (youths, mopeds and cafe pop music) and the atmosphere on the streets was friendly. We liked the fact that profits from the site go towards local facilities in this unspoilt town.

The site was quite full in December, with plenty of people spending the winter here, so we found it hard to find a pitch in the sun. Pitches are charged according to size and the cheaper ones were a bit tight even for our small van - we traded up to the next size. The staff were pleasant and the cafe/bar was open every day and evening serving coffee, good wine and a limited selection of hot food. On the downside the washrooms are dated and cramped (but clean); cold water to all taps and only two 'hot' showers in two of the three blocks which produced a fine spray of lukewarm water.

We walked the dog on the town beach each day but we can also recommend taking a water taxi out to one of the sand dune islands for seemingly limitless beach walking with not another soul in sight. Out of season, with no regular boat running, we paid €10 return for two people and the boatman collected us reliably from our deserted beach!

To start we only intended staying a couple of nights at Camping Fuzeta just to recharge the batteries and get the washing done. The fact that we are still here after eight weeks speaks volumes for the site and the town! The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and although some of the facilities are in need of updating they are always kept spotlessly clean. There is a new restaurant/snack bar on site which for the price of a coffee gives unlimited wifi access. The site is very convenient for the town with plenty of shops and a good size supermarket 15 minutes away or 5 minutes on the bike. There's also a covered market selling fresh fish, meat and vegetables just 5 minutes walk away. The town is served by a very good train service to Olhão, Faro and beyond and Tavira and Spain in the other direction. During the winter months the town is very much as it was 20 years ago, a sleepy little fishing town only getting busy during the height of summer. There are good discounts to be had for long stays but these end at the end of May. All in all the perfect place to spend the winter and early spring!
