FIGUEIRA DA FOZ
Nestled at mouth of the River Modego, you'll find Figueira da Foz roughly halfway between Porto and Lisbon on the Atlantic Coast of Portugal.
Translated the town’s name means Fig Tree at the River mouth. The population of this lively beachside town swells to almost double its size in the summer months of July and August wen holidaymakers descend on Figueira da Foz to lie on Europe’s widest beach and enjoy the sights and nightlife of the town. Out of season, moderate temperatures, a beach so vast and uncluttered with people it is practically private and great swells rolling through a wide variety of surf breaks make Figueira an appealing year-round destination.
Still relatively undiscovered by holidaymakers, Figueira da Foz maintains its distinctively Portuguese atmosphere and has not succumbed to the rising prices and Anglicised menus that you´ll find in more popular holiday destinations.
