There are tons of river beaches dotted all over Portugal and our nearest is in Côja. The Fluvial Beach of Côja is located on the river Alva, in Beira and rich in natural beauty. River beaches make a great alternative to going to the coast. Most are inland and we have several located near to us. The river water is clean and safe to relax in with no worry of huge waves crashing in your face. There are also lots of shady areas to relax in. They open in the summer season.
