Nature so close to the city …
Praia dos Ingleses is a sandy beach located in the upscale neighborhood of Foz do Douro, accessible by bus to thirty minutes from downtown Porto. It’s amazing to have such a beach « wild » mixing rocks, sand and pine forest. Nature so close to the buildings of the city. We can not imagine such a range near a city called the capital of northern Portugal.
The Douro River flows into the sea just off the beach.
The Atlantic Ocean at hand ..
In June, the water was cool.
Nice to relax on the beach after walking in Porto whose visit is « sport ». You spend your time going up and down steep streets. The flat country, it not known. It happened to me to be out of breath without knowing why. In short, although the city is full of charm, I wished it to be built in this manner. But some will say that it adds to it a little something …
So quietly recover at the beach or on the walkway along the beach is not a luxury. An ideal place for beautiful sunny stroll admiring the coast and take a breath of fresh air requinquant. Ocean oblige. We never tire of the beautiful scenery.
The cafes stay open late and Praia dos Ingleses is still busy after dark.
You will also not miss the bar-restaurant Praia dos Ingleses, on the seafront. It has a beautiful location with lovely views of the sea and on the headlights. A photograph postcard.
A weekend getaway in an ideal Europe.
