    Facho

    by solopes Updated Jan 8, 2014

    The best sightseeing point in S. Martinho do Porto is the mount that stays north of the entrance of the bay. Construction is growing, revealing some disorder, but some watching points are still available.

    The wild Side

    by solopes Updated Dec 16, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Facho, a mountain by the mouth of the bay, provides spectacular views over the whole site.

    One thing makes us sorry: Houses climbing the hill, and spreading wherever it becomes possible. Landscape deserves a better protection!

    Independance Memorial overlooking the bay

    by petra0919 Updated Jul 27, 2011

    A great place to go is at the highest point of São Martinho do Porto. On this hill is the Independance Memorial overlooking the bay. They fixed up this location this year and built a new road surrounding a cross. This is a perfect place to take photographs of the bay and the ocean.

    The rugged northern sea coast

    by MarioPortugal Written Mar 5, 2007

    The rugged northern sea coast is something that usually visitors use to miss in São Martinho.

    The northern sea coast has no beaches at all. However it's worth a visit just to look over the wide Atlantic Ocean.

    Romantic boardwalk path

    by petra0919 Written Jul 28, 2011

    São Martinho do Porto has a boardwalk that leads from the bay to a smaller beach called Salir do Porto. It travels along the beach and is great for romantic walks.
