The Praia de Odeceixe beach – part of the Vicentine Coast Natural Park, is situated on the two sides of the Seixe river which borders with the Alentejo region, thus offering both river and sea waters. Odeceixe Beach is a large sandy beach, especially popular with surfers and has a Blue Flag award. So, there are plenty of facilities here, including a variety of beachside shops and cafes.
What makes Praia de Odeceixe beach special is that on the riverside, it is more of a bay with no waves. Therefore, if you have young children or are not a particularly good swimmer, then this is the perfect spot for you. The other side is the ocean, with giant waves, prime surfing spots and soft golden sands.
This area is also good for fishing; there are many lovely walking tracks to explore. If you want to sit and watch the sunset at the end of the day, there is a small bar/cafe up on the cliff, which is a great place to sit with a glass of wine or a beer and just take in the view.
