wild camping, board rental and suit« on: June 26 2006 09:06:00 »
im flying to portugal for the second half of july. i will be with my bike and tent and plan to cruise from lisbon up to peniche or down to sagres and then slowly work my way back to lisbon. does anyone know the rules about ptiching a tent in the dunes...essentially wild camping. i dont always make it as far as i want on my bike in a day and some times end up sleeping where ever there is a place. will i have any problems?
also, i would like to know a typical price for renting a board and which suit i need if any? 3/2?

Hi Ben, pitching atent on the sand dunes is OK plenty of ppl do it as long as you are discreate......but there are also plenty of campsites around from Lisbon to the South. Any more info or questions let me know. I will be happy to help

and what about sleeping elsewhere along the coast. im sure there are some wooded spots, or farmers maybe? ive always had good luck with them. im assuming as long as i am discrete i can just about anywhere for one night?
