Want to discover another facet of Gaia? We advise you to rent bikes and go on a bike ride along the Douro.
The course is totally flat (except for a slight slope before reaching the beaches) and dotted with little treasures. From Gaia's docks, follow the River towards the sea. Your first stop
will be the fishing village of Afurada: it is the ideal place to enjoy fresh fish at low price.
The new marina next door is also a nice place to discover. Ride your bike again to Gaia Nature Reserve: the place is perfect for birdl watching, this will be
your last stop before you get to the mouth of the Douro that flows into the Atlantic Ocean.
There is a bike path along the beach: ride to the beach of Senhor da Pedra in Miramar: the most beautiful beach in the region and its chapel on the rocks are awaiting you!
A tip: the ride will take about 1h15, maybe longer depending on the number of stops. There is a bicycle rental in our street at number 55
