A pleasant village at a calm bay in Middle Portugal
São Martinho do Porto is a nice village at a beautiful and calm bay. This bay is a shell-shaped lagoon. It is connected to the Atlantic Ocean by a small passage between the hills. Around the bay is a wide sandy beach, and next to the beach hills and dunes. During summer season there are many blue-white tents on the beach, you can rent them to store your beach gear or relax in the shade. The port is at the northside of the bay, all the boats are located around this area.
Because of this bay, and the many possibilities, São Martinho do Porto is an attractive small seaside resort.
The beautiful bay is a paradise for small children. But also for their parents and older children there is enough entertainment. There are many nice and good (fish) restaurants, not only at the seaside but also in the village centre. The local market is open all week.
