The Tidal pools of Leça da Palmeira (Portuguese: Piscinas de Maré de Leça da Palmeira) is swimming area on the beach of Leça da Palmeira, along the coast of the civil parish of Matosinhos e Leça da Palmeira, municipality of Matosinhos, in the Portuguese northern district of Porto. The structures consist of two natural pools filled with fresh sea water, designed and built between 1959 and 1973 by Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza Vieira. Situated 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) from the Boa Nova tearoom and restaurant, it is considered one of Siza Vieira early projects.
In 1961, the initial project, which foresaw the construction of a bar along the southern edge of the pool, was never realized.

It's some sand beside the harbor. Not beautiful, it's just a small beach, but the harbor nearby doesn't make it nice. Josef, here around the coast is quite Rocky, so it's one of the few spots where it's possible to enjoy the ocean.

Fantastic ride from city centre. Ride along the waterfront for the best views. A half day by the pools is very good value for money especially the large waves on the beach
