    By chance we ended up with the old tram there. We enjoyed the view. There are two bars and both lead each to a lighthouse. The one Tower enjoys views from sea. It cannot be visited. The local bathing or fishing there. Great ambiance and beautiful sunset.

    Very nice place, beautiful view on the ocean and horizon. A small piece of land on the water. Very quiet.

    You can get there by tram and a walk of 10 minutes. The beach is not much, but you can relax while enjoying the ocean.

Where to stay in Porto

Portugal's second city offers a healthy variety and quantity of accessible accommodations. The historical city center on the northern bank of the River Douro teems with hotel options, ranging from budget-friendly hostels and guesthouses, which often have shared rooms, to upscale, luxury hotels housed in larger buildings and packed with amenities. All of these options place you conveniently close to the town's main sights, including churches, historical squares, and more. On top of that, many hotels on the northern bank boast good views from their hilltop vantage points. If you want to save big on cost, it's worth considering a more low-key hostel or small hotel on the less-popular southern bank.
