Costa Nova - Sunday 21th of June - day 3 of our roadtrip 2020
On Sunday the first day of Summer we went to Costa Nova.
The most picturesque image of the Costa Nova are the wooden houses with stripes in bright colors, with contrasting white stripes. They used to be built by the fishermen for shelter and to store the fishing tackle and are now restored. Nowadays they serve as pleasant holiday homes.
After lunch we visited Praia da Costa Nova, a sandy beach with dunes at the rough ocean, which is mainly visited by many surfers. Since we were there on Sunday, it was slightly busier than usual, because the locals obviously had also pulled out to the beach.
The visit to Costa Nova was also a trip down memory lane. In the summer of 2009 we drove with the children to Portugal in a camper and stayed for a few days in Costa Nova.
Because there was enough space in the camper, I took crochet blankets, my first stool and some handmade pillows. And my heavy Kronan bike, where we did a 'photoshoot' in Costa Nova. Not much has changed...
