A real illustrated postcard, Azenhas do Mar takes us by surprise with its geographical location, the houses cascading down the cliff slope to the sea, bathed in an idyllic white light.
It is one of bathers’ most sought-after beaches, with an ocean swimming pool that delights visitors.
There is no sand above 30 meters, and it may disappear completely during high tides. Over the last decades, the former fishing village has become a summer retreat and a quiet inspiration for many painters such as Júlio Pomar, Emílio da Paula Campos or Milly Possoz.
