  • The beach is wonderful for those who like sea wave, is very long and has several restaurants on the beach with typical tasty food, we eat fish moqueca with shrimp, very good. Not to mention the sunset which is splendid and cannot let go of the Ribeira's ice cream.

  • It was the first port and is now a fishing port. We went to walk with a taxi and I liked, it has very nice views and a narrow but beautiful beach. Also there are bars and ice cream shop has most famous Bay: Sorveteria da Riveira. To go to an evening stroll.

  • The Penha beach, which is confused with the Ribeira, because it is the motto, is just like that, a beach of calm waters, ideal to take children and enjoy a snack or drink or even read a book while enjoying the calm of the beach. It has no tents structure and all consumption is done with the sellers who usually use Styrofoam in the next part of the road. The beach itself is quite calm, and it is usually cleaned during the weekdays, but do not expect the same on weekends, because as well as the Ribeira, it is very crowded and noisy due to the large number of users who attend it, often , car sound or even private speakers. During the week it is worthwhile if the aim is to enjoy the beach without noise, without dirt and enjoy the beaches of water with very few waves.
