Fluvial beach of “Pego Fundo”
Small fishes are kissing the left edge of “Ribeira de Cadavais”, while I’m resting on the fluvial beach of Pego Fundo in Alcoutim, after hiking the”PR3 – Os Encantos de Alcoutim“.
Time has stopped this afternoon in the shade of a beach hat, where even a breeze did not dared to blow.
At about 500m from the town center, this small beach has all the infrastructure and services needed so that one can enjoy a fruitful leisure time. Among others, it has a support bar, toilets, parking, access for people with reduced mobility, surveillance during the bathing season, and a picnic area.
Water from the reservoir is renewed daily and reaches quite pleasant temperatures in summer. If you walk around the area, you must spend at least one day in Alcoutim and prove that.
