The best beaches are found in Foz de Douro, a very exclusive area with great nightlife. But if you go with children, the best option is the beaches of Vila Nova de Gaia, which have a more familiar and peaceful atmosphere and are awarded with a blue flag. Gondarém Beach, Praia do Carneiro, Matosinhos Beach and Ingleses Beach are other small beaches to spend a fantastic day of sun, sand and the ocean.
”Invicta” is the nickname that the city holds since it was never conquered during the 19th century civil war and survived a whole year siege.
