Dunes & Ocean
Chill in nature
While there are plenty of things to do in Aveiro, its attractions extend beyond the city centre.
Close to Praia da Barra, have a stroll in the São Jacinto Dunes Natural Reserve, protected since 1979 and just chill in those wild beaches. Between dunes, ocean, beaches and natural wetlands, you will find a lot of birds species.
At 11 kilometers outside the city centre lies a charming fishing area called Costa Nova, where you’ll find is a sandy dune-backed beach, a fish market, lots of fish and seafood restaurants and brightly painted striped cottages.
