São Martinho do Porto Beach


The São Martinho do Porto beach is extended throughout an astonishing bay, framed by the beautiful blue of the Atlantic ocean.
Beacause of its geographic features, this beach is ideal for children and also for nautical sports.
The S. Martinho bay is the last vestige of an ancient gulf that until the 16th century would run until Alfeizerão, opened to the ocean through a stay-bar with about 250 meters width, between the hills of Santana (south) and Farol (north).

On the Marginal Avenue, the cosmopolitan centre of the charming village, there are several esplanades, shops, bars and restaurants with the most regional dishes, offering the most diversified flavours of the ocean.
