PORT OF BARQUEIRO

DescriptionAt the end of the bay, between the sand bank of the Arealonga beach that is covered and uncovered by the tide, and Punta da Barra point, crowned by a lighthouse, is Barqueiro harbour. This is a small coastal town with seafarers’ houses on the hill. The small harbour dominates the town and there are views of the O Barqueiro Bay. It is a delightful small seaside town whose name comes from Barge “o barqueiro” that transported people and goods from one side of the bay to the other before the bridge was built. White houses shelter round a small harbour (from the end of the 19th century).
