We visited the capela in off season. We were there alone! The sea was wild and the clouds made the setting dramatic. Peace and quiet! Well worth a visit!

Located in one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe, this small church is in the middle of the sand, with the back to the ocean. It is a gorgeous view, with nice surroundings, restaurants, beachwalk. You can’t miss it. Only good in sunny days.

This place was one of the best spots we visited in Portugal, it's definitely worth a visit and a nice relaxing place to chill by the beach.

I didn't find the chapel just as charming as the photos would suggest. It is just minutes away from the parking lot and tourist traps, and did not feel a "spiritual aura" around it. But the walkway near the beach is great.

This place is so beautiful! We went there in the winter and the waves were enormous! The ocean makes this chapel so unique. I can imagine relaxing there for much longer, but the weather was not the best...

Interesting little chapel on the beach. The main draw is the beach which is beautiful. Its about 8 miles outside Porto with a cycle path along the Atlantic Coast all the way there.
