Vila Nova de Milfontes is a beautiful seaside village on the southwest coast of Portugal, with sunny outlooks, brightly colored buildings, a charming seafront and delicious ice cream.
Our friendly B&B owner suggested we visit the town beach, and take a stroll along it. What he didn't tell us, but knowingly led us to, turned out to be one of the most thrilling parts of the trip.
Walking north of the river and north along the beach, you come to a rock formation that has just enough space to walk underneath. On the other side, in a secluded alcove, slowly appears a glorious... enormous... rusty, beached shipwreck!
Ever dream of living out a part of 'The Goonies' film? This is the place to do it.
