    Winter

    by solopes Updated Dec 16, 2013
    S��o Martinho do Porto

    We use to say that our west coast "is the place where the winter comes to pass the summer". It's unfair, but the weather has its tricks and the water is generally cold.

    That's why I strongly appreciate our west beaches in winter - wide areas of free sand, lots of sunny days, and the water... still cold, of course. But who cares?

    Dunes at Salir

    Salir do Porto

    The best attraction of Salir, in São Martinho do Porto bay, is a large dune overlooking the beach.

    Children and adults get there some extra fun. Pollution was a problem, but the river was treated and things seem to be OK now.

    With a shell shaped bay, Sao Martinho do Porto is the most known beach of Alcobaca. It is absolutely safe, what makes it a children's paradise.

    Opposite to it's neighbour and "rival",
    Nazare, which in summer is invaded by thousands of popular people, Sao Martinho do Porto attracts some rather aristocratic dwellers, but in summer, like most of the other beaches around, it's always time of crowds and animation.

    Old Days

    by solopes Updated Aug 31, 2012
    S Martinho do Porto

    In the beginning of last century, this beach was an exclusive destination for the rich families in the centre of Portugal. Several mansions were built by the sea, but the mass tourism started to replace them by bigger block to popular purses.

    Not much remains from those old days, but the few images still add some beauty to the beach front line.

    The church comes from the 18Th century, and the most noticeable detail is a large painting behind the altar, portraying the saint who gave name to town - Martinho.
