About the Beach

What is Praia da Gelfa Beach?

It's an Oceanic Beach in the northern hemisphere bathed by the Atlantic Ocean, located on the coast of Portugal - Iberian Peninsula - in the municipality of Viana do Castelo.

Praia da Gelfa Beach presents a long sand mixed with pebbles and rocky formations along the water line.
During low tide, more rock formations get exposed and form natural puddles allowing relaxed baths.
To the east, the Mata Nacional da Gelfa1 gives the landscape a greenish tone. The easiest access is by a dirt path heading south from 2.
