It all started back in 1997, with a simple beach bar, called Água Doce, which sold ice creams, coffee, sandwiches, and cakes and which only operated during the bathing season. Over the years, it evolved and adapted to the needs of friends and customers that started to show up.

It was thanks to a group of friends, who gathered there to surf, that ideas began to come up. Little by little, they were implemented. The number of clients increased, and more events were organized. Consequently, some structural changes and refurbishment work needed to be done so that the bar could keep up with the increase of new customers.

Nowadays, the original bar no longer exists, but our friendliness and the simplicity and quality of the products we serve to our customers remain intact, just like in the past.

Located on the Baleal beach, Bar da Praia is more than a simple beach bar. It is a place where you can relax and share unique and joyful moments in the company of your friends or family. Here you can enjoy a selection of snacks and drinks while contemplating the sea view or charging your batteries after catching some waves.

Bar da Praia

At Bar da Praia, we have a diverse and healthy menu for you to have the best time possible: snacks, that you can consume on the beach; sandwiches; wraps and various salads.

If you wish a more substantial meal, you can eat in our Bar da Praia restaurant in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere while listening to good music. You have at your disposal a varied menu and drinks for every occasion as well as a fabulous sea view to reset your body and mind, surrounded by people from all over. At night, have fun with the best bar music, in a fantastic and joyful atmosphere.

Organic Garden

Tribo da Praia’s Organic Garden is based on Permaculture, a word which derives from the term “permanent agriculture”. This practice is guided by standards that are the opposite of the ones used in modern industrial systems, which rely on the use of fossil fuels and chemicals. The objective is to avoid global environmental degradation and develop a natural ecosystem.

All the resources used in the development of this Organic Garden are natural and respect nature and human beings. Our goal is to provide our customers with eco-friendly products and put them available in local grocery stores and in our Bar da Praia. We aim of developing an environmental awareness in our community.
