São Pedro de Muel Things to Do
North of the city, a wide beach is easily accessed walking or by car. Called "Praia Velha - Old beach" I don't know why, it's less populated, and sheltered by the national pine forest, and it's a very good solution for a rich and variegated day in contact with nature.
There's a restaurant at the entrance and... that's all.Related to:

A reference in the landscape, the lighthouse was built one hundred years ago. Standing 55 meters above sea level, its light is visible from more than 40 miles.Related to:
The sea is quite often too rough for a safe swim in S. Pedro de Muel. In those days, the large public pool adjacent to the beach becomes... very small.
It is part of a larger complex, with four indoor and outdoor pools, all with salty water, working from April to September, at a cheap price.Related to:

Hotel Mar e Sol: Robalo, of course
Good food and good service.
In 99% of my many visits the main course is "Robalo com molho de camarão", really, really, really good. But I also had the chance to verify that the entire list follows the high quality standard. Not so pricey as you could expect. Excellent, for a hotel's restaurant!
Favorite Dish: 1 - "Robalo com molho de camarao" (Sea bass with shrimp sauce)
2 - "Robalo com molho de camarao"

Estrela do Mar: Sea Food by the Atlantic
This is a restaurant that couldn't get any closer to the sea !!. Actually, Estrela do Mar (in english: Star of the Sea) is right on edge of the cliff - where the land ends and the sand begins.
The speciality of the house is on Sea Food. So, one gotta try shrimp & mussels (what great mussels !!). And there's also the Fish fresh from the Sea to be enjoyed gazing the Atlantic itself, which makes any food taste even better .
An aquarium with live lobsters is also on sight. Any customers may feel tempted to order one live specimen right there.
The Wine list is one of the finest I've seen in the area. Wines are of Portugal only, being Alentejo the portuguese region better represented closely followed by the Douro but since Estrela do Mar is mainly a seafood restaurant, Vinho Verde had also to be well represented with about 20 different options.
It seats 75 people, and Marco Paulo, chef & owner, will make sure his customers will not leave Estrela do Mar disappointed.
During Summer season it's opened from 9 AM until 2 AM !!! - That's 17 working hours per day !!
p.s.: Regular meat dishes are also available.
Favorite Dish: Appetizer: Shrimp & Mussels by Marco Paulo.
Entrée: Fresh Fished Fish grilled on live fire.Related to:

A few kilometers north of town (and a bit north of Praia Velha) the large and generally empty sand stripe that extends until Praia da Vieira is accessible, by an unpaved road with a parking in the end.
A small bar, is the only construction in this area called Pedras Negras.Related to:
