5 places with a lovely outdoor space in Porto

1) Praia Da Luz

Portuenses love nothing more than hanging out at the beach bars. This long-time favourite is right on the beach and it has a big outdoor lounge area. The service can be a bit hit-and-miss but the magnificent sunsets with a drink in hand make it worth it. On summer nights there’s often a party vibe with guest DJs.

This local favourite is popular for its charming little plaza-type terrace. It’s a great place to hang out, be it day or night, and it’s always packed in the evenings with a buzzing yet relaxed atmosphere. There’s a great selection of wine, beer and small dishes at very reasonable prices.
