To the south of the Cávado river mouth and part of the Litoral de Esposende Protected Landscape, Ofir Beach, surrounded by dunes and pine trees, covers one of the most beautiful stretches of the northern Portuguese coastline. One natural phenomena is the rocks emerging out of the sea at low tide and which form shapes known locally as the horses of Fão.
Throughout summer, there is always something going on. During the day, bathers tend to take to the waters in the central section of the beach while surfers head for the bigger waves breaking just south. The action continues well into the night at the various restaurants, bars and discos that surround the Beach.
