Just along from the beach of Leça da Palmeira, past the Piscina das Marés tidal swimming pool is another stretch of sand - Praia de Fuzelhas.
Whilst much of the shoreline here is rocky, above the tide line is fine golden sand. When the tide does go out lots of rock pools are revealed making this a good spot for kids, with plenty of exploring to be done.
As a Blue Flag beach there are plenty of facilities and the water quality is good. There are a cafes at each end of the beach here and a lifeguard service during the summer.
