  • Praia do Molhe, with its blue flag and 168 metres of sand, is named after a breakwater designed to protect the bathing area. Since the early 20th century, this has been one of the most important resorts along the Porto coast. Adorned by the Pérgola da Foz, it figures, on the many postcards, as one of the more iconic representations of the city. This cement balustrade was constructed in about 1930 and offers a marvellous platform from which to enjoy the sea views. Everything around this beach vies for the attention of the summer visitor, from the magnificent staircase to the tasteful bars and outdoor seating areas.
