Aveiro itself has no beach but the coast each side of the town is a more or less continuous line of sand cut off from the mainland by a meandering lagoon, which is home to a variety of birdlife. The beaches of Barra and Costa Nova can be reached within a few minutes by road from Aveiro and remain relatively unspoilt.

Barra with its lighthouse, loads of restaurants and nightlife is the most immediate as you cross the bridge over the lagoon.

Costa Nova, 3km south of Barra, is the more picturesque and is mostly famous for its colourful striped houses, squeezed onto a tiny strip of land between the beach and the lagoon.
