The village of São Martinho do Porto, has two main areas: one has grown around it’s beautiful shell shaped bay, and the other is situated around the main Catholic church with more traditional buildings.
The bay is protected from the Atlantic Ocean by rocky cliffs, offering only a few hundred metres entrance, where the ocean flows into it. This provides calm waters by the long sandy beach front, making it ideal for families of all ages.
There is a campsite ‘Baía Azul Campsite’, situated approx 50 metres from the beach. There are also plenty of restaurants (many specialising in local sea food), bars, shops and cafes throughout the village.
São Martinho do Porto is located within the council (freguesia ) of the Alcobaça Municipality, in Oeste Subregion of Portugal, and is centrally positioned along the coastal side of the Silver Coast. Using the motorway (A8), it takes just over an hour from Lisbon Airport to drive there. There is also a bus service from Lisboa Sete Rios (approx ½ hour bus ride from Lisbon Airport) to Sao Martinho do Porto which takes around 1 ½ hours.
