Póvoa de Varzim, Portugal.


Tourist Information



Póvoa de Varzim is an important fishing port in northern Portugal, and has a beach with a high content of iodine, a much sought after destination for beach vacations since the eighteenth century. The town also has one of the few casinos in Portugal, and is one of the favorite places in the region residents in summer.

Its promenade by the beach is a must and most visited by locals and visitors alike. Póvoa de Varzim is a town with a City park and a beautiful natural landscape on its coasts that stretch in the north towards other touristic towns of Esposende and Viana do Castelo. The A28 motorway connects quickly these locations via rapid transit. Away from the coastal region, in the interior region, Póvoa de Varzim is in the proximity of historic cities such as Barcelos and Braga, as well as not far from the biggest Portuguese Natural Park “Peneda-Gêres”.

Axis Vermar Conference & Beach Hotel is located in one of the most beautiful landscapes of northern Portugal. Located in the north of the town of Póvoa de Varzim near the beach, it is also not far from the Casino, hence in the close proximity of the two tourist attractions in the area. The hotel is 18 kms from the international airport of Porto and 30 minutes from the city of Porto. Please check how to reach there on the Venue page.
