A privilege of nature

The old fishermen’s town of Esposende may seem calm and quiet at a first, but a closer look will reveal many treasures for anyone passionate of water sports, hiking, mountain-biking and many other outdoors activities.

With over 14km of natural coastline, it is a particularly privileged area, with some of the best beaches in the North of Portugal. Foz do Cávado, Apúlia and Ofir provide a unique beauty to the region, where all the beaches are protected and part of the Northern Littoral National Park.

The gastronomy of Esposende is rich of a great maritime influence, with emphasis on the bass baked in the oven, mullet, flounder, lamprey and of course, fresh locally caught seafood, all watered down with local wines from the north of Portugal.

Esposende is also a strategic step of Camino de Santiago. All along the year, many hikers stop over in this town, located 45km north from Porto, on their way to the Spanish border and Santiago de Compostela. If you’re one of them and are looking for a place to stay, don’t hesitate to send us a message or give us a call !

Check out what to do around town

Esposende is a great location for adventurous travellers seeking for outdoor activities in a relaxing environment, nested by the Atlantic shore and surrounded by nature. The uniqueness of Esposende comes from its interaction between the Cávado river estuary, its lagoon and its dune system, and the Atlantic Ocean.

The lagoon allows premium conditions for kitesurf and stand up paddle adventures, in an idyllic environment. Offshore on the ocean side, an outside reef slows down the Atlantic swells in some of the beaches, creating perfect conditions for surfing in a beautiful scenario along uncrowded sandy beaches with a variety of more or less exposed spots, suitable for every level of surfers.

In land, the richness of this location allows everyone to enjoy multiple experiences of very different sports like hiking, mountain bike trails, yoga sessions, canyoning, horseback riding and much more, always in some stunning landscapes.

If you feel less sporty and feel like visiting the region, the proximity of Esposende with two of the most emblematic cities of Portugal will give you the opportunity to travel back in time while exploring medieval sites and discover the legacy of Porto and Guimarães and their world heritage historical center.
