Taxi boat Maresia

Vila Nova de Milfontes

Beginning of activity prior to the existence of the Milfontes Bridge, already in the 70's of the 20th century, Mr. Manuel - father of the current owner - was crossing the Mira River carrying people, animals, vehicles and/or goods, whether summer or winter.

After the bridge was built in 1974, the regular boat crossing continued, and around 1990 when Mr. Manuel withdrew, his daughter Sao took charge of the business.

The Taxi Boat Maresia offer its passengers a simple and relax way of service: the crossing between banks of the Mira River (Vila Nova de Milfontes »» Furnas Beach and vice versa).

They can also transport severeal bikes, so if you're alone or with a group of friend enjoying a bike ride in the area, you can also cross the river with your bike.
