  • The praia das rocas is a good alternative in warmer weather. However, prices have been increasing dramatically in recent years and with the offer of river beaches as good as the well corga, the monastery and the cliffs of St. Simon is not justified.

  • This beach, with huge pools provides to the families real moments of happiness. The staff is superb, the wave pool is huge and the whole surroundings is suitable for children who can take advantage of large-space has a lot of activities beyond the wave pool. Has been for the past two summers one of our holiday destinations.

  • A giant swimming pool with various activities where stands out the artificial waves. Ideal for children and adults. Has some negatives, as the price of the entrance ticket and shades/sun loungers being a little over the top. The bathrooms are small and need improvements. The bar has a restaurant service but practice prices too high and little diversity. The infrastructures are too small for the number of people they let in, that is, queues for everything. Has the potential to improve.

  • Have been here twice and will continue to come here every summer. It's super fun to spend the day here. Very relaxing and the waves are amazing. It's best to bring food with you and there is a place to keep the coolers indoors (sort of like a locker room) and there are picnic tables available. It's a great place for people of all ages. Adults pay 7€ without any activities. I haven't done any of the activities so I can't review those, full price adult ticket costs 10.50€ which is still not too bad if you're planning on spending the entire day here. If you want to get chairs to sit in the shade, be sure to come here early as people line up before it even opens!!
  • Went there for the first time last month and loved it. Definitely going back next year. Huge artificial beach, with waves coming every 30 minutes. There is plenty of activities also, conquered my fear of heights by going on a slide, but you can do also a aqua gymnastic, go on a canoe of a swan ride by the lake. There is also some animals (turtle, snake, owl, parrot) that you can take pictures with but at the end for having an impressed copy they charge 8€ which i think is expensive taking into account that a ticket with activities included costs 10,5€ for a full day. There are 2 types of tickets , one that include the entrance fee + activities and one with just the entrance fee, children under than 6(not sure) are free but if you want to do activities with him you have to buy an activities ticket, at the time they didn't explain me this and I had my daughter cry half of the day because she couldn't do the activities. Also there is a huge line outside to buy the tickets, better to go to the balcony inside. The beach is adapted for people in wheelchair, meaning they can get into the water with the wheelchair, but can have a bit of a struggle to go to the bathroom, must be accompanied. There is a "restaurant" that you can eat, but you can bring food from home but if you bring a cooler or isothermic bag they ask you to arrange it in a room that they have. Overall great experience.
  • A marvel. A beach on the hill??? Wonderful.
  • Really cool place to chill out away from the confusion. Even better out of summer
  • Very relaxing and lots of fun activities and the best of it artificial waves...
