Loriga is by far one of the most beautiful river beaches in Serra da Estrela. However is equally cold! :) Nevertheless, its a must see and look at the bright side...you can stay pretty much alone in the water since its so cold! hehe

This is a real gem and I am very happy we went there. An amazing place with few small natural pools that you can go in and have fun. Water is really cold bit it doesn't matter :)

I went here in a beautiful spring day, a very warm day, the beach has a few families but there's plenty of space to chill if you dare to climb a little! Gorgeous views and landscapes!

Even in summer.... Beautiful natural place to swim at that crystal and cold water. You can enjoy with young children because you have 2 pools for them. The other pools have rocks in the background and advise the use of appropriate shoes with neoprene ....More
