Typical village of fishermen, situated in the region of Paignton, known by the peculiarity of their homes and of its people. Its construction is based on pillars (to prevent flooding) and is in wood that has been painted subsequently to the taste of the owner. Since most fishermen here live from Vieira de Leiria, their boats are called vieiros. The beach is sandy Brown, very quiet and here you will see more fishermen than sunbathers! This was also the village where he lived the Portuguese writer Alves Redol.
