We’ve all heard of the expression Farm to Table, but what about Farm to Beach? It’s at the Raya.

This Beach Club is located on the river beach of Azenhas d’EL Rei, in Alandroal, and 80% of what is served here is grown on the Terramay organic farm, where respect for animals and plants speaks volumes.

Beyond its vegetables, this organic farm has acorn-fed Black Iberian pigs, goats, Merino sheep, ducks, horses and more than 300 birds, as well as cattle from the endangered Mertolenga breed.

The restaurant is as zero-waste as possible, it’s seasonal and its the menu is made with what is picked daily from the land. Even the staff shares transportation to get there.
