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 lighthouse was open, but the pier few metres to the South was frequently overrun by the waves... so just watch a while before you start the walk. There are barriers that they close if things become dangerous, I assume. So if it's closed... rather don't enter.

First of all, I would 100% recommend a trip here - for me, it took about 2 hours total (from the time I left Porto and then got back). It was stunning, the way the waves crash over the pier was beautiful and the walk along the ocean is lovely. I took the 500 bus line (1.95 euros each way) and I got off at the Igreja Da Foz stop and from there it’s a short walk to the lighthouse.... (a lot of people stay on the bus so don’t let that deter you from thinking you’re at the wrong spot). The lighthouse itself is very small, it’s the waves worth going for!

Porto has many amazing viewpoints from where one can watch great sunsets, but this one is hard to beat: the sun sets in the ocean in splendid fashion while the sailboats passes by and the fishermen interact in lively ways, to the delight of locals and turists alike. Also, the presence of the phare just makes it even more scenic. Picture-perfect!

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.
