Costa Nova - Portugal

Last month Miguel was on holidays and he went to Costa Nova, located on the west coast of Portugal. The beach of Costa Nova is one of the best portuguese beaches to practise water sports, such as windsurf, kitesurf and similar sports.  But this place is best known for its typical houses.

These colorful houses were originally built by local fishermen and were used as barns. Now they're mostly used, during the summer months, as beach huts.
