As calm as die Douro river seems, you can come and see the might of the Atlantic just a few kilometres west of Porto city centre. The swell and the waves crashing into the pier wall is just fascinating to watch. The walk to the...More

If you like ocean and waves, this place is definitely for you. You can stay here for hours, even for days and don't get bored. There is rush of adrenaline every time wave hits close to you. It's a must-see if you are in Porto.

Farol Molhe do Douro is a cove style beach with large rock formations just below the levels in the water that the waves crash upon. It makes this view exciting and very natural. The lighthoiseis positioned therefor good reason. It was rather blustery the day...More
