Zambujeira do Mar
Zambujeira do Mar is a Portuguese parish of the county of Odemira, with 42.96 km ² of area. Density: 21.2 inhab / km². The parish was elevated on June 30, 1989 (it belonged before to the parish of São Teotónio), being the smallest of the county.

Its coast, integrated in the Natural Park of the Southwest Alentejo and Costa Vicentina, is surrounded by cliffs and small beaches that, outside the high tourist season, are paradises used by few. In addition to the central beach of Zambujeira, the beaches of Alteirinhos, Nossa Senhora, Arquinha and Tonel stand out.

The main activity is tourism, but agriculture, livestock and fishing are also important, housing one of the four ports of the county (called the "Entrada da Barca"). In recent years, rural tourism has grown, with a handful of quality developments around the village.

In August the three major events of the Zambezi calendar are held: in the first half of the month, the Southwest Festival, the largest of the country's summer music festivals, located a few kilometers from the village; on August 15, the religious festivities and procession dedicated to the local patroness, Our Lady of the Sea; on August 29, the annual fair.

The collectivity of the land, the Zambujeirense Recreational and Cultural Association, carries out various leisure, cultural and sports activities.

You can start the meal with the cheeses and sausages of the region, accompanying a slice of the famous Alentejo bread. Some of the typical dishes include fish soup, beldroegas soup, fish stew, búzios feijoada, seafood açorda and appetizing seafood rice. The meat dishes are not to be missed: try the cabidela chicken, the migas with pork fried, the feijoada de hare or the bean rice with fried entrecosto. In the sweets, do not forget to taste the alcomonias, cake made with pine nuts, flour and honey.
