People usually come to Aveiro town to see a “Portuguese Venice”, but another great thing there, which absolutely can’t be missed, is #Atlanticocean just about 10km from the downtown.

Go there to spend some time enjoying perfect beaches with sand dunes and big waves, to engage with a bright sunshine and clear blue sky and to feel the power of the ocean.

There are a lot of good restaurants offering all varieties of fresh #seafood, which comes directly from the fishermen. Every evening right after the sunset they go to open ocean for fishing. All those clams, prawns, fish, squids and many other tasty things arrive every early morning and being served for lunch and dinner.


In 5 min by car from Costa Nova there is another nice beach called Barra. To find is easy, a lighthouse is located just at end of the beach.

The purely stunning time of the day, when everything around starts gradually becoming pinkish and the ocean is getting a stainless steel color.
