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.
