It's easy to get to this beach from Porto if you don't have a car. Hop on the tram that departs next to Igreja Monumento de São Francisco, and take it all the way to the end, just past Capela-Farol de São Miguel-o-Anjo.

We rented bikes from our hotel and took a trip to the beach avenue. We drove by this astonishing place in the evening as the sun was setting down. Very romantic and beautiful place. Good access with bikes also.

In the summer is a good place to go to the beach and relax. In the Winter, specially in late December, is great place to watch big waves. You can also pratice sport, like jogging, and go along the boardwalk to Castelo do Queijo.
