Ofir Holidays

Ofir Holidays – Just peace and relaxation

Ofir is a resort for relaxing, taking a stroll through the pine forests that run down to the beach, or simply lazing the days away on the beach itself. Although, if you are a lover of water sports, this is a very popular area for sea canoeing, surfing, windsurfing, fishing and snorkelling. There are plenty of places to take an evening drink, but it’s not the place for partying till dawn.

For culture, the fascinating city of Oporto is only half-an-hour away, where you can wander the ancient medieval streets of the Ribeira or climb the zigzag stairways to the cathedral, before visiting on of the city’s wine producers and picking up a bottle of its most famous export – deep, rich port wine. You can also sample the excellent Vinho Verde wines by taking a wine tour to one of the local producers.

Fao, a three-kilometre stroll up the estuary of the River Cávado from Ofir, set in a river valley with the mountains as a back-drop, dates back to Roman times. Try the grilled sardines at a quayside restaurant for the typical Portuguese experience.
