Was a pleasant surprise! Some would think they have traveled to Asia and are standing somewhere in Bangladesh or Vietnam etc..such is the similarity! Indeed this is the reality of how this village lives and the great seafood they provide us tourists!

Something unique in Portugal! The sunset over the ocean is always wonderful but here, the shallow water, the weak woodboards, the tiny boats gives you a sense of secret, almost decrepit, wonder waiting for you..

A nice stop if you're in the area, but really not worth the detour from Alcacer do Sal. A quaint fisherman's pier built on top of the Sado River mouth

Beautiful place to take some sunset pictures, however a little bit degradated. The best time to go is at the sunset.

It is a small fish village but we can dream about Asian places. Lovely boats and an historic place. The seagulls and other birds can fly all over us i have enjoyed very much!!

This is not a place for everyone. However, it is worth the small detour and the visit. Kids will find fantastic to discover the different paths. And if you're a photo enthusiast, bring your Reflex !

It's true that the place looks like it could be refurbished but it's poor construction is what gives its magic. It's basically a set of wooden walkways over the water with wooden shacks for fisherman. Nevertheless it's the trip going there specially if one stayed...More
