It's a beautiful place, with warm water which is great for a swim. It's not very big, but is very pleasant.

Nice beach with warm water next to wall of rocks.
On summer it's difficult to park the car.

There are surf schools on the beach.

Nice sand, clean but though a bit could water. Not many people around. Good parking options. Be aware of current.

The São Torpes' beach is perfect for families. Very flat with fine sand and the water temperature quite pleasant (some say due to the cooling of the eye sore in the back ground - a thermoelectric plant). Nonetheless is a very safe beach due to the level of water being so shallow for so long. The easy access and abundant parking means that at times it may be busy. Services available comprise bar, restaurant (with other close by) and surf school with many dedicated teachers.

Very nice beach with an extraordinary detail - warm water.
The refrigeration system of the power plant nearby the beach, provides waves of hot water on the beach's bay.
It's a very unusual sensation in the cold waters of the Atlantic Ocean and make you feel like if you were in the Mediterranean sea.

The beach itself is not very nice. Not very well cleaned, scenic view is a thermoelectric plant... But the water has a nice temperature; especially in high tide you can feel some waves of lukewarm water coming from the plant cooling circuit.

It's a regular beach but with hot water from the electrical power plant near the beach. Don't worry it isn't a nuclear power plant :-)
