Where the river Mira meets the ocean, it has sheltered beaches safe for swimming and sunbathing sheltered from the wind by the cliffs. Also on offer here are fishing trips by boat, and a surf school.

Cabo de Sardao – No beach, but a dramatic panorama. Feel the raw power of the Atlantic and see the storks and their nests perched high up on the cliff-tops.
