Figueira in portuguese is the fig tree. So as you can understand, this place has this name for a reason. But this is not the ”landmark” of the area, the most famous attraction is the sea.
The big waves, the dark blue water, the endless sandy coastlines will help you forget all of your worries and enjoy a wonderful day by the sea.
Many people come at Figueira da Foz, not only to spend their day swimming, but also to take some surfing courses. This is what Alex did too and even if it was his first time, he was pretty good at surfing!
