Visited Praia do Carneiro with my wife after we had had a walk along the pier to view the lighthouse. If looking towards the lighthouse head on, then this beach is directly to the right. It is the closest of Porto's beaches to the mouth...More

Relaxed here and drank a beer. Stuck my feet in the Atlantic. A lovely beach stop and good swimming for children as it was shallow and calm.

This beach/lighthouse/walk along the water is a beautiful break from the density of downtown Porto even on a cloudy/grey day. The fog may also impact your visibility depending on the time of day (morning or late afternoon).

Amazing place where the river meets the ocean, just beautiful with people walking on the sidewalks, full of fisherman. The beach is very nice, for anybody who loves water and the beach, you can spend a whole day here.

this must be a nice beach in the summer, now during the winter the waves are impressive. it is located just close to the Jardim do Alegre and it is something you can visit while there.

Such a pretty, peaceful area. Would highly recommend visiting around sunset. Lots of people were there, but it didn't feel crowded - it was mostly just people taking in the beautiful view. Sizable waves and a really calming scene.

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. It is...More
