    “Fao is a small town, located on the Atlantic and the river, which can be reached from Porto by car in about 35 minutes. South of Fao is Apulia (here you can buy fish directly from the fishermen every morning) and north Esposende, which are only 2 km away. Fao has a very beautiful natural beach, which is only half-time at the weekend. The wooden path, which leads through the dune landscape, has come a bit old. Crossing the dunes to the beach requires some flexibility. The natural beach is not guarded. Turning right to the house and going to Praia Orfir, you have a guarded beach with toilets, shade, bars and shops. Between Fao and Apulia lies the famous Pasha discotheque. In Esposende there is outside a very large supermarket, which one can compare with a real market.

    Excursions to Viana do Castelo, Ponte de Lima, Ponte de Barca and Braga should be planned. Another great destination is Valenca do Minho, the border with Spain with a very well preserved fortress, where you can stroll and shop. By the way, the whole area belongs to the Jacobsweg and there are many pilgrims. In the restaurants you can eat part for 6.00 EUR / person lunch, a soup, can choose from two daily dishes, a dessert and a cafe ... also in the supermarket can be very cheap shopping. The north of Portugal is a beautiful spot on this earth, a green land with numerous rivers that all flow into the Atlantic and very friendly people. We felt like at home and will definitely be back.”

    “In May, the place seemed quite sleepy. And it was partly alone on the beach. Who wants to start browsing is on this beach in the morning right. In the evening the waves are usually a little more demanding. With us on the first visit was on the beach, a surfing school, where you could rent a neoprene and a surfboard for 2.5 hours for 10 euros. Instruction included.
    In the vicinity there are a few restaurants that serve fairly decent portions for relatively cheap prices. On the quality of the food could not be faulted.
    Recommended Portuguese language skills a lot. We are also coped with Spanish, French and English but.”

    “A set of wheels is essential - supermarkets like Lidl and Continentale are accessible close by and easily accessible by car. Watersports we have not discovered.”
