Portugal's north has impressive beaches near Aveiro. The flat wide sandy coast of Barra is ideal for kitesurfing and in good weather conditions you can see the surfers fly over the waves. The city has an impressive lighthouse. In the nearby town of Costa Nova, it becomes more contemplative - the colorful houses of the side streets and the equally colorful but striped houses of the promenade have always been a magnet for tourists.

It is best to take photographs in the morning when the colors of the houses are lit up in the light of the sun. From noon, the sun is then unfavorable and the colorful house fronts are in the shade.

In the evening, if you are lucky and the weather conditions are good, you can take photographs of the moonlight on the lagoon, for example. from the Pousada da Ria. The very nice hotel is perfectly located on the promontory between lagoon and Atlantic.
