In a sea of mountains ... with mountains of water ...
Portugal is a country of wonderful beaches but… not just on the coast. The river beaches of the Center of Portugal have a high quality, not only because of its clear and crystalline waters but also because of its scenic surroundings and also because of the good conditions of support and accessibility. Whether on the Mondego River, on the Zêzere River or on the fantastic Rio Alva, in central Portugal you can find river beaches hidden in small paradises and in small villages, some of them integrated in the Schist Villages network.
Discover our river beaches and have the privilege, on a hot summer day, to dive in waters that in the coldest months are surrounded by snow. This is just one of the enriching experiences that you can enjoy while visiting the best river beaches in the Central Portugal area.
