So we took the tram along the coast as far as we could then walked up to the beach....it is a fair walk tbh...

This was Easter weekend so too early for the normal beach stuff...however some guys still out on long boards... the fools.

Lovely sand on this beach and lots of brave souls surfing, wait for the sunset it is so worth it and lots of places nearby to eat and drink.

Matosinhos is part of the region of Porto. It used to be famous for its sardines industry and harbour, now it's an upcoming village for young trendy people. Some parts are not yet developed and you still see dilapidated houses and old factories, but I assume very soon it will be a very nice place to live near to the overcrowded city of Porto. It has a nice beach (surfing- showers to spoil the sand and seewater off on the beach- and sunbathing).

Like to walk in here but could have more attractions. A good place to go and have a drink in those bars with a sea view.

I visited Porto in October so I couldn't have chance for a swim but it is a great beach for a long walk as well or for run. Near the beach there are few places you can have some food and drink. In general prices are very cheap for food or drink at the area. If you walk up to Matosinhos center you can find very nice fish and sea food restaurants
