Description

Costa Nova The most picturesque aspect of Costa Nova is its coast road along which a line of wooden huts is painted in brightly coloured stripes alternating with white. Built by fishermen as shelters and equipment stores, the huts have now been converted into rather characteristic holiday homes. With the sea often rough and much appreciated by surfers, Costa Nova do Prado Beach covers a large expanse heading off southwards in the direction of Vagueira Beach, excellent for those liking a long walk along the seashore. On the other side of the coast road, Aveiro Estuary, with its calm waters, is a favourite for sailing and windsurfing in what constitutes an entirely different natural environment. Praia da Barra Located by the pontoon that marks the beginning of the Port of Aveiro and the end of the estuary, Barra Beach is both spacious and has good conditions for a range of sports including surfing, bodyboarding, kite-surfing, sailing and sea fishing. Very popular among sunbathers, the area takes on a new life during the summer months with the entertainment continuing well into the night at the many bars and discos and during local festivals. Right by the beach is the imposing Aveiro Lighthouse, built over a century ago and, at 62 metres in height is the tallest in Portugal.
