Surfing meets tradition

Arrifana has maintained its status as a small fishing village in the Aljezur region. Because of this you will find a variety of great seafood restaurants and also cafes that are perfect to quench thirst and satisfy your appetite after a fun-filled day at the beach. During July the local fishermen invite you to a traditional festival where you can grill as many sardines as you can eat for a small contribution.
