Sao Martinho Do Porto : Retaining it's Portuguese charm and character, Sao Martinho do Porto is a remarkably picturesque seaside town. The town is built around the sheltered bay that provides for safe bathing away from the strong Atlantic currents. The bay also benefits from warmer waters thanks to to its sheltered location. There are life guards on the beach during the summer and the beach is cleaned most days showing off its beautiful iridescent silver sand which is where the area gets its name. Surrounding the bay there are numerous cafes and restaurants where the majority of the food on offer is typical Portuguese (superb seafood) though there is also a very good Italian & also a Swiss restaurant along the front of the bay too. In the surrounding area a number of excellent golf courses have been built, and more are planned.

Climate & vicinity: Sao Martinho do Porto enjoys an idyllic climate that tends not to reach oppressive extremes of hot or cold. Daytime temperatures mid-summer tend to range between 26ºC and 34ºC. Mid-winter daytime temperatures typically range between 14ºC and 18ºC.

Within the vicinity of Sao Martinho is the beautiful historic town Obidos (approximately 15-20 min drive) and the Obidos lagoon. Figueira da Foz is located about 10 min drive from Sao Martinho, it overlooks the Obidos lagoon (the largest lagoon in Europe) and similarly to Sao Martinho it provides safe bathing away. Sao Martinho's neighbouring town is called Nazare , it is a typical Portuguese seaside town which offers a good number of cafes, bars and excellent restaurants.

Further details outdoors:

You will find 4 chairs on each balcony from which to enjoy the sun in the day and sit to watch the sunset in the evening.

Please bring your own towels for the beach.

Area : Many water sports are available on the beach.

There are 3 or 4 small supermarkets in Sao Martinho itself. Larger hypermarkets are close by.

There are lots of lovely restaurants which feature Portuguese food (with English translation on request) and there are Italian restaurants too.

Our recommendations -

Acasa – Excellent service & fresh fish you can choose.

Carvalho – In Main St – Old Town centre. Level with the back of Hotel Atlantica. Very good value.

O'Farol - located on the beach itself with the best views and good value.

There is also a very good Swiss restaurant, and a great Italian along the bay.

Also try Hotel Capitao – afternoon tea on the veranda is accessed at the side/rear of the building.

There is a market daily in Sao Martinho offering fresh fruit, vegetables, fish and bread amongst other local produce (mornings only).

Location description from owner

The Central Portugal region

The beautiful town of Sao Martinho Do Porto is built around a beautiful bay naturally shaped by the sea to form a perfect shell. Making the most of the view of the bay a string of cafes and restaurants have emerged offering a diverse range of food and drink.

The majority of the restaurants you’ll come across will be traditional Portuguese restaurants specialising in Seafood. Portugal has a superb tradition for fresh fish and shellfish and typically the dishes are reasonably simple making the fresh seafood the feature of the meal. Many traditional restaurants will serve dishes known as Cataplanas. These dishes vary considerably depending on the restaurant but they are delicious and include a variety of seafood cooked with onions and tomato

Sao Martinho do Porto

At lunchtime a number of restaurants serve a Prato do dia, this is the ‘dish of the day’ but it may be up to three courses. These dishes are typically very good value.

Of particular note are the following restaurants:

A CASA – serves typical Portuguese food with an emphasis on good quality, fresh seafood.

O'FAROL - this restaurant enjoys superb views over the bay. Serving typical Portuguese food, this restaurant is excellent for seafood.

CARVALHO – a good Portuguese menu with some nice dishes. Typically prices are reasonable and the food is good. Well worth visiting for a lunch in particular.

PORTOBELLO - an Italian restaurant that offers good food at reasonable prices. With a wide range on offer, the pizzas in particular are excellent.

ROYAL MARINHO - a Swiss chef offers a diverse range of dishes which vary throughout the year. Dishes can include Swiss fondue in the winter and French classics such as Chateaubriand.

PESCA NO PRATO - An excellent choice of restaurant for traditional Portuguese food with an emphasis on fresh seafood.

Although alcohol is served in all of the many cafes surrounding the bay of Sao Martinho, the two specialist bars in Sao Martinho are Pato Bravo and The Status Bar. Both bars offer nice environments to enjoy a drink and they continue serving until the early morning. Pato Bravo has a beautiful central view over the bay. The Status Bar is found next to the Atlantico hotel just behind the children's play area on the bay.

Also well worth a visit is the Hotel Palace do Capitao, a stunning historic building overlooking the bay. Enjoy afternoon tea in a beautiful environment.

Supermarkets

For a large supermarket get on the main road out of Sao Martinho (R. Gen. Carmona), Just before you get to the junction to join the N242 (the road you would use to get to Nazare) you will see a large supermarket (Intermarché) on your right-hand side. It’s about 10 mins walk from the centre of Sao Martinho Do Porto.

Golf

There are 2 excellent golf courses with easy reach of Sao Martinho:

The Praia del Rey is the best known of the local courses, it is ranked as the 13th best golf course in Europe. The course is located approximately 40 mins drive from Sao Martinho.

The Golden Eagle golf course is also very popular and it is located in a very peaceful setting approximately 40 minutes drive from Sao Martinho.
