Miramar beach featured at the 15 Best beaches in Europe 2015

European Best Destinations selected Miramar beach as one of the 15 most beautiful beaches in Europe.

Miramar is a small town located about 10km south of Porto, on the VN Gaia municipality. One of the quietest beaches around Greater Porto, the beach's top features include an extended sand bank, relatively calm seas considering the area and a beautiful chapel right on top of the wave break area, providing an amazing sunset scene.

It's easily accessed from Porto's center by train. The yellow line, linking Porto to Aveiro, gets you there in about 30 minutes from São Bento station for 2,80€ (round trip). The beach is just a short walk away from the train station in Miramar.

Year after year, tourism in Porto keeps growing and receiving praise on subjects such as culture, gastronomy, wine, history etc. Northern Portugal isn't your typical beach destination, so it's amazing to find that the city and the area's efforts to broaden the tourist offer are being recognized and are definitely consolidating Porto on the travel map.

So if you're around Porto this Summer, come visit one of Europe's finest beaches.
