Matosinhos is one of the most sought after municipalities in housing today. Several factors make Matosinhos so attractive, but above all, it is the quality of life that distinguishes this municipality from the Porto Metropolitan Area. In this article, we have selected the main reasons that make Matosinhos the ideal place to live.
Matosinhos has an extensive offer concerning beaches since it is a coastal city. The vast beaches invite residents and visitors to long walks by the sea. Currently, 13 Matosinhos beaches are distinguished with the Blue Flag Award, thanks to water quality, cleanliness of the bathing area, surveillance, access quality and infrastructure. In the Winter, Matosinhos beaches are sought after by surf, bodyboarding, sailing and windsurfing lovers, who find the ideal conditions for practising these sports in the north. During the Summer, the beaches are full of people looking for the sun and the sea of Matosinhos. The waterfront, refurbished a few years ago, gave new life to the beach area, with the construction of new real estate developments and the opening of modern terraces.
