A green environment full of freshness. 
Alvoco das Várzeas Beach, with its crystal clear water and Blue Flag, is surrounded by a picnic park with leafy trees, ensuring a green environment full of freshness. It is located in a valley on the bank of the Alvoco river (which rises in the Serra da Estrela, near to Alvoco da Serra), next to the beautiful medieval bridge (16th Century), with a magnificent view of the Serra da Estrela mountains.

The river area offers wide green spaces and leisure areas, a picnic area with a bar serving small meals and delicious snacks under the abundant shade offered by the large willows.

To get to know and explore the whole area, you can use the Caminhos do Xisto walking routes of the Aldeias do Xisto.
