Porto for beach lovers

If you go with children, the best option is the beaches of Vila Nova de Gaia, which have a more familiar and peaceful atmosphere and are awarded a blue flag. Gondarém Beach, Praia do Carneiro, Matosinhos Beach and Ingleses Beach are other small beaches to spend a fantastic day of sun, sand and the ocean. Alternatively, get a villa in Costa de Prata, Portugal’s silver coast with the best beaches for surfing. Costa de prata is only 25 minutes from Porto.
”Invicta” is the nickname that the city holds since it was never conquered during the 19th-century civil war and survived a whole year siege.
Top 5 travel tips in Porto
1. Visit the winery of Vila Nova de Gaia
To the south of the city, in Vila Nova de Gaia, you can find most of the wineries in which the famous port wine has been produced for centuries. The difference with other wines lies in the brandy that is added to interrupt its fermentation, thus preserving the original sweetness of the grapes and a high level of alcohol. If you have a holiday rental in Porto, you can visit the many wineries to learn how the elaboration process is carried out and make a port wine tasting.
2. Cais da Ribeira
Porto’s riverside is a picturesque area with plenty of restaurants, bars and cafes lining it. From here, you can spot the famous Luís I Bridge and enjoy a nice coffee. This district has been spruced up in the last few years, and you can see ducks going through the arcades of a real maze of stairways and steep streets full of colourful facades. Old businesses and merchants' stories are part of this district, and you can discover more about them on the information boards in the area.
3. Visit the church of São Francisco
The church of São Francisco is the last Gothic monument in Porto. It was finished in 1425. Book a holiday letting in Porto and visit the church. Admire the redecorated interiors with lavish woodwork, old vaults, pillars and carved panels representing cherubs and foliage. You can admire the apse and the main entrance from the outside, with a rose window on the portal.
4. Explore the trendy district of Poz de Douro
Poz de Douro is where the river Douro enters the ocean. Stroll along the long promenade lined with palm trees and pines. You can see the Pergola da Foz, which the mayor put there in the 1930s. From the lighthouses that guided vessels for 120 years, you will find the perfect spot to photograph the mouth of the Douro into the ocean. Don’t forget to capture the strength of the sea crashing against the breakwater and creating impressive waves. Traditions meet modernity with all the new restaurants in the area and affordable holiday rentals in Porto. Catch the sunset during your dusk stroll. Can you think of anything more romantic?
5. Get on a boat
The Douro River travels from Castilla León to Porto to find the Atlantic Ocean. One of the best ways to enjoy this river is by taking a boat trip or a cruise. If you have a villa in Northern Portugal, you will be a few minutes drive from the Douro River. For an hour, you can enjoy a pleasant cruise with a guide telling you about the port warehouses and the main landmarks on the north bank. The story of the bridges of Porto is also very interesting. Luís I Bridge is quite famous, but Maria Pia Bridge, built by Gustave Eiffel, is too.
