Presenter Michelle Eagleton takes a trip to the Centro region of Portugal to discover what it has to over as an alternative holiday destination. During her stay Michelle indulges in rock climbing, fantastic food and drink plus visits the beautiful beaches close by.
Large and enclosed by tall cliffs, Água de Madeiros Beach has a full range of services and facilities including a bar and restaurant in addition to horse rides through the surrounding pine forest. The sheltered part of the Beach is enriched by the fabulous limestone sedimentary strata as well as a small river, ideal for children to play in.
With its wide expanse of golden sands in striking contrast to the black rock of the surrounding cliffs, Pedra do Ouro Beach is a site of great natural beauty enhanced by the abandoned windmill perched at its northern end.
