Ilhavo is near many of Aveiro’s more popular attractions. Two destinations that should top every visitor’s to-do list is the fabulous Costa Nova Beach and the ever-popular Barra Beach. If time permits, be sure to also visit the Sao Jacinto Beach and the Igreja de Fermentelos.
There are many picturesque outdoor attractions here as well so make sure you enjoy the chance to get outdoors. Get in touch with nature at one of the area’s beaches, for example the Praia de Mira Beach in Mira and Torreira Beach in Torreira.
Watch local favorites, the S.C. Beira-Mar, take to the field at the iconic Estadio Municipal de Aveiro. On match days the area around the stadium becomes a sea of yellow and black, as local soccer lovers flock together to get behind their beloved team.
After a long day enjoying Ilhavo, recharge your batteries at one of the area’s hotels or serviced apartments. Whether you’re staying for a night or a few weeks be sure to check out the Meliá Ria Hotel & Spa, the Hotel As Américas, and the popular Tulip Inn Estarreja Hotel & Spa.
