Our Porto beach games afternoon (or morning for the early risers!) lets you enjoy the world class beaches of Porto to the full. You’ll have a laugh, get some rays and we’ll throw in a couple of beers to get things going. There will also be a nice beach bar close at hand for those of you who prefer their entertainment sitting down.
We’ll head to the world-class beaches of Matosinhos or Gaia (a short ride form the Porto city centre area of Trindade or Aliados). This is an organised day of crazy beach games at our world-class playa! Let us set up a group of activities that is sure to get everyone that tan they’re looking for while mixing it up with some fun!
Our local guide will make sure you have a beach football or volleyball court set up (let us know which you prefer by all means, they’re both a riot! – often both will be available but that depends on the time of year, as Porto’s beaches can be busy in summer at weekends).
But, maybe the most riotous thing about Porto beach games are the organised group games, where some of you might get a bit dizzy and even buried in the sand, our beach guide will get you competing in teams and make sure you get chance to build the most impressive castle!
Apart from beach clothes and a towel, you won’t need much equipment as we’ll lay it all on. With beaches so near the centre of town, it’s a short trip in a cab or by public transport to get to the venue (we’ll give you full information on that in our voucher). We can also lay on Porto transfers to get you to the beach on time!
Our guide will meet you at the beach and organise all of your activities. Our package includes two beers each (can also be wine or soft drink if you are that way inclined!). You’ll spend approximately 3.5 hours at the beach. You’ll have extra drinks and food to hand of course with local beachside cafes, bars and restaurants. If you want to organise in advance a lunch for the whole group to sit down and enjoy, let us know, there are some fantastic options!
CAREFUL!: Some of Porto’s beachside bars are very hard to leave indeed, don’t be surprised if you’re still sitting there arguing about whether Eusebio was better than Ronaldo, still in your trunks and Mambo t-shirt, sunnies perched on conk, as the clock strikes 1o pm…
Porto’s climate is mostly benign (check out the weather in Porto here right now) and you’ll typically get mild sunny days all year. Summer of course is well hot (27ºC +) In fact temperatures in the winter months of November – February would not always be great for the beach but spring and autumn offer pleasant average temperatures (often 19º or more) and Porto has lots of hours of sun. It goes without saying this is the Atlantic sea, not the mediterranean, and the waves crashing in are often the star of the show.
