Defined by two breakwaters, and accessed by a seaside walkway next to the centre of Espinho, Baía Beach is the most popular in the city.
Located right by the oldest Golf Club in Portugal, Paramos Beach covers a huge area of sand but which can only be reached by crossing the Espinho Air-Club and paying careful attention to the signalling.
Located to the south of Espinho while still a continuation of its sands, Silvalde Beach adjoins the similarly named settlement, a parish whose origins stretch far back into history and whose inhabitants long ago took up agriculture and fishing.
With a pleasant climate and some 8 kilometres of fine sands facing these immense blue seas, Espinho is one of the main tourist resorts of northern Portugal. Only the long seaside pedestrian walkway separates the sands from the city.
