Relax and enjoy the good weather on environmental quality beaches
Did you know that Porto was considered the “Bluest Municipality”, for the 4th consecutive year, in 2020 by Associação Bandeira Azul da Europa (ABAE) and by Agência Portuguesa do Ambiente (APA)?
If you like to go to the beach, there is nothing better than enjoying beaches that respect the environment and, in Porto, there are plenty of them. See all the beaches you can explore.
Along the coast you will also find several outdoor cafés/restaurants, some of them right on top of the rocks, with a unique view of the sea, ideal for a summer afternoon or at sunset! With a little luck you'll find one of the outdoor cafés/restaurants with live music and a DJ. PS: Enjoy the moment with a Port Tonic!
Savour a delicious Porto Tonic
Port Wine is, without a doubt, is the city’s most famous drink. It is delicious to drink plain, but there is a perfect cocktail to try in summer: Porto Tonic.
