"Atlantic Ocean" Porto Things to Do Tip by el_ruso

Porto Things to Do: 486 reviews and 998 photos

 
 

The area along the ocean front is the ritziest part of Porto and is some distance from the center. Aside from the two fortresses that I talk about separately you will love the rocks along the coastline. They are not only beautiful, but really really ancient as well, the youngest being 570 million years old! If you have a chance to visit here and just walk along the sea, you will enjoy your time immensely.

The ocean front is lined by a series of parks, and the beach is covered by many cafes where you have a drink and enjoy the view of the Atlantic.
