The car is just a means of getting to your destination. Once you reach the village, you simply have to leave the car and walk.
In the high season, however, finding an available parking space could be a real challenge. It pays to arrive early enough.
There are several car parks along Av. Marginal, the main coastal road.
The areas are mostly unpaved but offer a good number of parking spaces right next to the bay.
Another large area is available in the western area of the inlet, near the Duna de Salir do Porto, on Rua Dom Fernando.
HOTEL AND APARTMENTS WITH PARKING
If you decide to spend the night in Sao Martinho do Porto, it might be an excellent solution to stay in a hotel with private parking.
House San Botas, is a property worth considering. It is located at Rua Comandante Alves 7, 10 minutes from the Bay, and just 5 minutes walk from the lively Municipal Market.

In nearby Dos Bombeiros Voluntarios, a few minutes away, is the Hotel Santo Antonio da Baia. A good alternative to the previous one, it also offers free private parking in this case.
