Povoa is one of Portugal’s most popular seaside resorts, with plenty of hotels, shopping and even casinos to show for it. All were built to support tourists who flock to the nearly 12km of beaches. A rich collection of artifacts relating to Povoa’s rich seafaring history are on display at the Ethnography and History Museum of Póvoa de Varzim.

Notice

The Metro of Porto Line B (Linha da Póvoa) terminates here. 

The Road

The entirety of the walk between Póvoa and A Ver-o-Mar can be done along the coast, following the shoreline. Shortly before arriving in A Ver-o-Mar the signs are unclear. If you get to a large soccer field (no grass) you want it to be on your right, but it will likely be on your left. If it is on your right, the way is across a small bridge. If it is on your left, simply turn left at the end of the field and keep on straight, across a different bridge but one which will likewise take you across a small sandy stretch into A Ver-o-Mar.

Casa fragosa costs 18 €, but had sheets, blankets and towels, plus a super cute location right by the beach.

After the center right by the beach comes the restaurant 'Palador'. They had great service and amzing portuguese food, including fresh fish and scampis.

Very busy with tourists, but a lovely town and well worth the visit. If you can get accommodation before Povoa De Varzim, it could be a good idea to stop in a town before this, as it's a long walk from Porto, but a lovely walk.

There is a chapel round the corner, it was open for adorers. The room was cute, clean and there’s a kitchen.
