Barra Beach: The sun and sea of the coast of Aveiro invite you to visit its beaches. You should start your visit at Barra Beach, located between the São Jacinto Dunes and the Costa Nova beach, and discover the Barra Light. Rising majestically over the sea, this is the tallest lighthouse in Portugal and one of the tallest in Europe. It marks the site where the Aveiro Lagoon meets the sea.
Costa Nova Beach: A part of the colours and beauty of Aveiro is inseparable from the famous haystacks of Costa Nova. These traditional structures were used by fishermen to store their fishing materials and have also been used as beach houses throughout the years. Built near the beach, they welcome the sea with their façades painted in bright coloured stripes.
