With about 6 km from a sandy beach forming a shell shape around the sheltered bay, São Martinho do Porto is a much appreciated summer resort. The calm sea has the perfect conditions for both children and nautical sports such as windsurfing, sailing and canoeing.
Here there are several reputable restaurants specialising in local gastronomic specialties such as steamed lobster or stuffed spider crab.
Close to São Martinho do Porto you can find beautiful beaches of fine sand and sheer cliffs standing out against the crashing sea, such as Peniche and Nazaré, both typical fishing town.
Apart from the beaches this is also a zone of great historical and cultural interest to discover!
