Praia da Memória - Beach of Matosinhos

Previously known as Arenosa or Ladrões Beach, this area of sand became known as Memória Beach following the erection of a commemorative obelisk on the spot where liberal troops led by Pedro 4th (1st Emperor of Brazil) disembarked in 1832 in order to expel his absolutist brother, Miguel from the Portuguese throne.

The open sands, surrounded by dunes and a few rocks, of Memória Beach see a lot of surfers given the strong waves coming ashore here. To the north, Marreco Beach begins and a favourite among children who love playing in either the sheltered pools that form among the rocks or, alternatively, in the children’s park here.
