The discovery for those coming from Mértola on the N265 road is surprising: a vast area of clear and calm water surrounded by shady trees and, on one of the banks, a river beach of white sands. For swimming, the summer season begins on 15 June and ends on 15 September, but the beach is the place to be all year round!

Accessible beach; Blue Flag; Supervised beach; Picnic park and barbecue; parking lot; Bar and toilets; theatre; Playground; Walking trails; Canoeing track; Free WIFI.

Canoe rentals, hiking, cultural visits to Mina de S. Domingos former mining complex.

During the bathing season Mértola Municipality organizes a range of entertainment activities aimed at tourists. Among the activities we recommend the outdoor cinema, the summer concerts and the beach library.
