When visiting the city of Porto, most people don’t have planned a trip to the beach on their itinerary. After all, Porto is World-know for the Port Wine, Douro river, tiled churches and monuments, but this city has so much more to offer than just it’s World Heritage status.
Take a break from city exploring and head to the beach to work on your tan, learn how to surf or just cool off. From urban beaches in the city to hidden gems in small villages close by, the only trouble you’ll find is choosing your favorite one.
Porto is full of treasures: locals who love to host, high-quality gastronomy, urban parks, street art that gives you the feel that you’re in an open-air museum and the sea, of course, our eternal font of energy.
The best way to explore is to walk—and then walk some more. And you couldn’t have picked the best spot to start exploring the city, from Old Stone Flats you are literally 30 steps away from all the major attractions. Get your most comfortable shoes on, put on some sun screen and bring on your appetite, cause will most definitely gain some weight.
