Sao Martinho do Porto Bay

Sao Martinho do Porto & Salir do Porto

Known as Portugal’s best family beach, due to its calm waters and welcoming atmosphere, Sao Martinho do Porto is a small fishing village in the Silver Coast of Portugal, built along a bay known for its natural shell shape. 

On the northern shore of the bay, you will find the village of Sao Martinho do Porto, a cosmopolitan beach town once sought after by the Portuguese nobility to enjoy Summer holidays. This old shipbuilding port has a long and rich history, but its charm remains intact to this day and is especially sought after by families.

In the southern part of the bay, you will find Salir do Porto, a quaint old fishing village that is now a tranquil residential area with restaurants, a local pharmacy, mini markets, and cafés where you can benefit from all the comforts of living in a traditional Portuguese beachfront community

Salir do Porto beach, with Portugal's biggest sand dunes and famous wooden walkways are a short walk from the village town centre. The surrounding green landscape provides an ideal place to walk along the shoreline cliffs.

Sao Martinho do Porto 

The smell of the sea in the air, seagulls flying high above guided by the wind, sweet "bolas de Berlim" and ice cream cones savoured by families while overlooking Portugal's highest dunes and boats dancing on the calm waters of a shell-shaped bay... It may seem like paradise, but for many, Sao Martinho do Porto is truly a dream come true...
