Afife

Afife is a quaint, old village in the north of the Costa Verde. Blessed with a three kilometer stretch of beautiful sandy beach, Afife has become a popular beach destination in this region. The village itself has a bakery, supermarket and a good range of cafés and restaurants both in the centre and along the beach. However, if you would like to explore further afield, the slightly larger town of Caminha with its cobbled streets and elegant buildings is just a short drive away.
