Barra da Lagoa is a place where you can find good food, nice people too, some attractions at night, but it's not a place for swimming; better to take a look at a work of ''rendeiras'', a portuguese tradition...

We went here for the weekend to escape from work. We found it nice and a good place to escape for the weekend. The hostels were full when we were making the booking because of the SUP competition held this weekend. So far, i can say that this is a good beach to relax, surf (beginners), dine and drink.

This is a nice town, where you not only have a nice beach, a nice small lagune with nice views, but also nice authentic shops to buy souvenirs or hammocks.

Brilliant spot. Great to do SUP on the river and lake, and then go up and hike over the top of the hill.. Fantastic views, great location, great way to get a really good experience of the natural beauty of the island.
