This beach is located right across the beach town of Milfontes. This beach is unique as this is the river mouth of the Mira. This makes that the beach of Furnas and the town of Milfontes are divided by this river. And that makes that you have the option between swimming in the ocean or the stream. Because the Atlantic Ocean can be unpredictable at times, it’s nice that you can go with your children into something calmer than the sea.
If your belly starts to rumble or your mouth gets a bit dry, then this might be the ideal time to go for a snack or a drink. At Furnas, there are two beach bars available. One is called the O7 Ocean Drive Beach Club, this establishment is managed by a Dutch guy from Amsterdam, which you will notice on the flag that is always present near the bar. During the summer, this bar also rents lounges and sunshades, for those who don’t like the sand that much. In the bar itself, you can drink some delicious smoothies or have a quick bite to eat.
A little bit further there is a restaurant, which is called Oasis. In this establishment, you’ll have more options, for those who are hungry. The food you’ll find here is typically Portuguese inspired. And while you eat, you can enjoy the view on the river Mira and Milfontes.
If you are a bit done with the beach for that day, you can easily get into the car to proceed with your trip to Milfontes. Here you’ll be able to do a little shopping, eat ice cream, or have a bite to eat.
