As in previous years, Portimão Câmara is once again running a summer sports activity programme on the beach at Praia da Rocha. This activity, supported by the Sport and Youth Division, is aimed at giving visitors to the beach the chance to try some physical exercise and sports fun. The organisers also hope that the programme will boost tourism in the area and keep local youngsters occupied during the school summer holidays.
This year, the Praia da Rocha Sports Area will run until the end of August. The free activities on offer include beach football, basketball, beach volleyball, beach badminton and beach tennis. This year, for the first time, there will be sessions of body-combat, body-balance, body-attack, aerobics and fitness at 6pm, and walks on the beach at 9.30am.
These activities will take place three times a week. Capoeira classes will also be available once a week, at 7pm.
