The ocean is far to too wild and rocky for swimming, but the sand is nice for sunbathing, provided you don't need a beach chair. If you like your ocean view from a bit of a distance, you can enjoy a glass or wine and...More

We didn't swim when we visited as it was too cold but it was still a lovely place to walk along the promenade at the top. There are a couple of restaurants dotted along the way which make nice places to stop for a drink...More

We had lunch. Food presented really well and typical Portoguese. It was nice but expensive. For five at lunch we paid 50€. The view was outstanding but to much overpriced.

We visited on a Sunday. Service was slow. They lost part of our order. Took a very long time to get a drink. While the view is stunning, the menu is average and the servers inattentive. Had to ask twice for our check. Our server...More

Lovely beaches, some with clear areas of sand many with interesting rocks and rock pools. The area around the beach was buzzing with people, cyclists, skaters, dog walkers etc. Many people were surfing the Atlantic waves, probably too tame for the pros, but good for...More

First night in Porto we hit the jackpot. Restaurant and bar by the sea at sunset is a thrill. The staff is humble and the food is terrific. DJ outside by the bar, inside is quieter for discerning visitors. Pasta with shrimp and veal with...More

Very nice beach with golden sand. A bit rocky for bathing, but would be great for sunbathing in the summer. Nice restaurant nearby with the same name!!

The restaurant with its location is great! The food, wine and the staff is really good! The place outside directly at the coast is amazing! Coming back next time!
