Quiet beach
Aug. 2020
Nice and quiet beach with a laguna. Nice with kids. The high dune is also pleasant to climb and run down.

Almost a daily visit apart from August
Dec. 2019
At the far end of the crescent shaped bay of Sao Martinho do Porto. There are rocks to explore around the old Customs House Ruins. The beach is backed by a huge sand dune which is fun to climb for children and older big kids!! A nice cafe and good car parking nearby. When the Tide is out a river splits the beach but there is room so it does not feel too crowded. A good sized swimming pool is a minute from the beach at a reasonable price. One side of the beach, far side from the dune is dog friendly. We go there 4/5 times a week to excersise our dogs

Living nearby, I have a grasp on the area,as not a tourist.
Firstly the beach is very good,generally clean but can be claggy mud at times.
The car park does have thieves operating especially in high season.
The boardwalk leading to Sao Martinho from Salir is an absolute disgrace, it is impassable for those with mobility problems due to erosion under the boards. Sand has formed mounds on where the boardwalk used to be, and makes walking or pushing trams practically impossible. The Camara at Caldas are aware and have failed over two years to rectify the problem.
The main beach out of season suffers greatly from discarded fishing nets and plastic detritus no cleaning is carried out.
During summer months the beach and car park are very busy.
Defecation by humans in the dunes is common in the summer months .
Yes it's a lovely area spoiled by an inefficient camara unwilling or unable to deal with the issues.

Great Place

Great place to bring the family, especially the children, watch them climb the sand mountain and than running down right into the water to cool off, great fun for all ages.

Lovely quiet place to holiday

Rented a villa here. You really need a car to get around but if you’re not worried and just want to relax this is the ideal place

Beautiful beach
Aug. 2018 • Family
I love this beach. It is vast and uncrowded and very scenic against the cliff backdrop. The best feature is the huge waves. They have lifeguards there which surprised me, and have toilet and shower facilities, free parking, a restaurant and a decked outdoor cafe. Great place to have a beer and watch the sunset.

A little piece of heaven!
Jun. 2017 • Solo
Fabulous, friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating hosts! Spectacular views by the 5star pool; you'll never want to leave the little oasis. Very clean, comfortable, and beautiful suites. Superb location, walking distance to some amazing restaurants, little towns, and the sea. Easy to get just about anywhere and anything you want to do in Portugal! Definitely plan on returning. You won't be disappointed.

walking on the beach
Jun. 2017 • Solo
very nice view from the dune, where you are protected by the wind. TIP: visit the ruins of the medieval port and chapel. Go see the view point/miradouro!

Our hunt for the natural spring
Mar. 2016 • Family
We were staying at Foz do Arelho and were told about the natural spring at Salir do Porto. My daughter likes natural spring water as she believes tap water to have too many chemicals added. We went to this beach hoping to get a few bottles filled. We had been told it was only a five minute walk from the car park. There is a river flowing onto the beach and on one side is a boardwalk. We had been told you can wade across the river. We walked along the boardwalk and then down the beach to wade across. The tide was coming in and it looked like you could get easily out of your depth, so we retraced out steps and walked along the other side of the river. There is a very high sandbank behind this part of the beach. Lots of children were sliding down and having a whale of a time. It looked like you could slide down on a body board or similar. We kept walking. The beach got narrower and rocky. We had to scramble over some rocky bits. Then we found a path which led uphill but parallel to the beach. We went past an old ruin and kept going. Soon we found the pipe that had been described as coming from the natural spring. Apparently people come from miles to collect the water here. It is said to have magical properties. As the tide was coming in the waves kept crashing over the rocks and we got our feet wet filling a couple of bottles. We decided we couldn't carry any more. It had taken us about 30 minutes (not the 5 we had been expecting). We sat and enjoyed the view across to São Martinho do Porto and the sunshine before walking back. As the tide had come in we had to scramble up the sand bank a bit to avoid walking through the sea. If we'd been in swimwear this might have been fun! Back on the sandy beach we sat on the sand and recovered from our adventure. It was very sheltered and a sun trap. As we climbed back up the steps to the car park area there were people sitting in coats as the breeze was quite cool. They obviously didn't realise that they could have been much warmer down on the beach. If you weren't searching for the natural spring, the boardwalks take you through a nature reserve, which was really interesting. A lovely spot and well worth a visit.
