It is always a great surprise for all those who visit the mouth of the São Jorge River for the first time when they find the small beach and a bathing complex situated at the river mouth, providing magnificent views on the surrounding landscapes.
Although there is sea access, we do not advise you to swim here, especially if the sea is rough. The north coast is especially uninviting because of its often very agitated sea, which makes it unpopular except with surfers. Because of the sometimes-rough conditions of the sea, a new bathing complex with three swimming pools and a restaurant was built in this area.
During the nights of the summer months, the São Jorge beach area gets quite animated, as the ‘Calhau’ and ‘Neptuno’ bars provide non-stop entertainment until late in the morning.
