Praia da Tocha

Reviewed By Fraser000

We come from Nor Cal, which has some of the best Beaches in US. Tocha Beach rivals our best with its long seeping sands, few people, raw ocean power, clean water, and pretty good shells. Although it wasn't surfable when we went, apparently its good for that too. Make sure to time it to catch the sunset, bring some wine, and head down the beach in either direction from the boardwalk street. We went in shoulder season and maybe that is important too.

Reviewed By Amazon122s - Santa Comba Dao, Portugal

This watermill is situated near Fonte de Ançã and is still active. The first documented references to its date who is going back into the year 937. When interested to visit the mill on the inside, you always can contact the Tourist Office of Ançã who is in charge for it, you find the phone number on the mean entrance door. Very nice and interesting location.

Anca Natural Pool

The natural pool of Anca is greatest place to be on a hot days of summer!

Reviewed By Amazon122s - Santa Comba Dao, Portugal

Put into a green environment who gives the visitors the possibility to have a nice swim and a coffee break next to the pool in the café, the natural pool of Ançã is open from 11h00 until 19h00 every day during summer, and is controlled by a life-guard, the water in the pool is coming from the Ançã Fountain, so for the full 100% natural. The pool has different depts. adapted for children and adults, and also a bit slippery due to the natural water supply, the only negative point is the missing car-park, but from the historic centre to the pool is only a few steps.

Cantanhede Motorcycle Museum

Reviewed By Jerry699_12 - Chartres

This private collection of motorcycles can only be viewed by appointment and is one mans personal collection. He is an enthusiastic motorcyclist with a passion for Italian motorcycles. Among his collection are some British gems like an OK Supreme of 1934, a Royal Enfield that his father rode in WW2, 1930's Panthers and a few BSA's as well. I had a great time with the owner and his friends talking about motorcycles. It is a place for the enthusiast.

Igreja da Misericordia ou Convento de Santo Antonio

Reviewed By Amazon122s - Santa Comba Dao, Portugal

The construction of this church is going back into the year 1675 and was ordered by the 1º Marquis de Marialva, D. António Luís de Meneses. The church is on a surrounded location, but it is possible to enter by car, otherwise you will have it hard to find a place for the car, and on the location there are more things to see than only the church, all together not bad for a short visit.
