Do you know Porto Covo? Here's what we can tell you about Porto Covo. A lovely fishing village that lies between Sines and Vila Nova de Mifontes, around 160 km from Lisbon, Porto Covo is becoming increasingly popular with holidaymakers. Here, you'll find the region's characteristic architectural features, with white-walled houses with blue bases, cobbled streets going down to the sea and pretty squares perched on the cliffs. The main square in the village is Praça do Marquês de Pombal, and you'll really love it. This seaside village will provide you with warm, sun-drenched days, lovely, fine sand beaches and, above all, wonderful food.
Did you know? The name Porto Covo may stem from 'port of the covos', a covo being a kind of trap to capture lobsters and crabs. And indeed every day, fishermen leave from the traditional little fishing harbour to look for fish. So Porto Covo is a fitting name!
On the program? The main focus when you come to Porto Covo is of course the beach. Some of its beaches enjoy calm water and splendid coves where children can play in real tranquillity. Others are swept by large waves, which watersports and surfing enthusiasts will just love. And there's also the option of the beaches of Praia dos Buizinhos and Praia do Banho, two spots that are sheltered by the cliffs, where you'll feel right at home! So, where would you like to go? Does the route known as the Rota Vicentina mean anything to you? This is one of the longest paths in Europe at 450 km, and, guess what, one section starts at Porto Covo: Trilho dos Pescadores, a section which follows the coastline between the sand dunes and the sea, with spectacular scenery. If you're into nature and hiking, this one's for you. And before heading back to the village, stop off in the village centre and head for one of the restaurants. You're going to fall head over heels with the local specialities!
