Figueira da Foz is one of the largest cities found in this part of Beiras, Portugal. Here is where the Mondego river passes Coimbra and ends in the Atlantic Ocean. This bend is spectacular and is well maintained. There are numerous fishing boats around that give it a more authentic feel and add beauty to the area. Figueira da Foz has several areas. One is the marina which is surprisingly quite large and modern. It´s great for playing sports or checking out the spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean. The port is always full of people and tourists so there are many bars and restaurants. The old town of the city is particularly interesting.
