pmsufc's City Tips

  • The beaches are massive so there is plenty of room for everyone, but beware the sea is the Atlantic and can be cold even in summer.
  • There are lots of seafood dishes as in all coastal resorts.
  • Try the little custard tarts, Pastels de Nata, a local speciality, also the cataplana order this if you are hungry you will get a large portion.
  • Wear sensible shoes, specially the ladies
