A place to remember, always... I recommend a walk there on the sunset... very special and romantic! It’s a single place, very interesting historically and very nice for photographing!

Interesting to see and an incredibly photogenic place at sunset. In the summer, bring your repellent, mosquitoes will devour you!

Was a pleasant surprise! Some would think they have traveled to Asia and are standing somewhere in Bangladesh or Vietnam etc..such is the similarity! Indeed this is the reality of how this village lives and the great seafood they provide us tourists!

Something unique in Portugal! The sunset over the ocean is always wonderful but here, the shallow water, the weak woodboards, the tiny boats gives you a sense of secret, almost decrepit, wonder waiting for you..

A nice stop if you're in the area, but really not worth the detour from Alcacer do Sal. A quaint fisherman's pier built on top of the Sado River mouth

This traditional fishermen's quay is an absolute photogenic place with fantastic views over the estuary of the river Sado. The light constantly changes, birds of all kinds including flamingo's are fouraging in the shallow waters. Bring a bottle of wine and some sandwiches and sit...More

Beautiful place to take some sunset pictures, however a little bit degradated. The best time to go is at the sunset.

It is a small fish village but we can dream about Asian places. Lovely boats and an historic place. The seagulls and other birds can fly all over us i have enjoyed very much!!
