About the Beach

What is Praia do Canto Marinho 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 do Canto Marinho Beach is famous for its numerous rock banks that are hidden during high tide. It has an extensive sand and a long dune string. The low tide uncovers small puddles, ideal for peaceful baths.
