From here we offer fishing from our boat or guided trips on the river for the shad when in season, or just coarse fishing in the town. The town council has provided excellent river fishing platforms only a couple of minutes walking distance from the accommodation we provide. the river offers fishing for silver fish and carp,barbel and barbel. Fishing in Portugal The  Guadiana  river forms a border  between southern Portugal and Spain at its lower tidal reaches. It is considered one of Spain's foremost Comizo barbel rivers. Its tributaries and many dam formed lakes make for some varied fishing. Fishing in Portugal is not like Northern Europe, no need to get to your best spot early you have the place to yourself.The river varies from fast flowing tumbling glides where, during the  season of April and May, you can take Shad on the fly or small silver spinner, to deep slow pools where with one rod you can bag up with small barbel and carp while the other rod and bite indicator waits for the big comizo or big river carp.For our guests we provide detailed maps and GPS coordinates of the good swims in the area so you don't have to waste time finding the hot spots. Fishing in Portugal offers of lot of variation. The reservoirs in the area around Mertola offer some of the best Largemouth bass fishing in Europe and are well worth a try.

There are plenty of bars and restarurants in the town so you won't go hungry or firsty. Mertola has a long rich history with plenty of archiological evidence in their many museums.
